My World View

Whilst at The Photography Show on Saturday, Richard gave me a 360 camera.  I have been having some fun with it since the weekend 🙂 To experience this video in full 360 view, please use Chrome, then use your arrow keys (or your vr headset!) to move around the video.

London.

All shot on Victoria Embankment, London during a short walk along the Thames to clear my head. It’s amazing what you see when you look.

Welcome to Colchester

  The weather has been lovely today so we decided to take a long walk around Colchester. We’ve lived here just over five years and we have had a good exploration of the town whilst we’ve been here and yet there is always more to see. I have seen Jumbo (the Victorian water tower) from a…

Why you wanna treat me so bad?

I have no idea what happened today.  I don’t know if I was tired.  I don’t know if I hadn’t warmed up or moved enough.  I am not sure if I tied my shoes too tight or too loose…  Al i do know is that this run hurt! I set off with the same expectation…

Walking not running

The highlight was our encounter with a very tame robin.  At one point it felt like he was observing…

Waiting for the rain to stop…

Now I don’t mind running in the rain but it has been torrential since I got up this morning and it currently sees no sign of stopping.  I have therefore spent the morning cleaning up and ironing with Richard and we are currently preparing a healthy lunch. I cannot grumble about lack of activity this…
