Morning has broken

I have been experimenting with timelapse photography and have managed to capture a sunrise from our bedroom window that I am very pleased with. My camera does not have a timelapse function, this is a combination of using the anti-shake option and an external shutter release.  It sounds complicated but once you get used to…

A brief love affair

You will recall I mentioned not so long ago about being excited to be the owner of a Leica camera.  Well I am about to sell it! Don’t get me wrong, I love it but the photography course I have started ensures that you take all of your photos in manual mode. The Leica can…

Celebrating our 10th Civil Partnership Anniversary 

10 years ago today, Richard and I tied the knot celebrating our union with our civil partnership. I still remember the day like it was yesterday and feel so loved and grateful for that day. I don’t know where the time has gone but we’ve had lots of love and adventures during this time.  Long…

Today’s run was short but it was fun, it was energetic and it was exhilarating. Whilst at the Physiotherapist on Monday I had a session on the treadmill where she monitored my running form etc. I have good balance and my hips and pelvis are aligned as they should be, my knees are also wide…

Leave?  Are you kidding me?

I cannot believe what I am waking up to. What is wrong with this country? This country needs to bloody wake up. Leave voters bow your heads. If you voted leave, please feel free to remove yourself as a friend and a follower as I have no time for you or your narrow minded xenophobic…
