“There are always two people in every picture; The photographer and the viewer…”

– Ansel Adams

The first and most important thing to say, is that a Book of Quotations is an awesome thing and the index is even more so. For my Birthday a few weeks ago (which was also awesome), I was treated to the Oxford Book of Quotations. It may sound tedious but for someone who is inspired by quotes, quotes quotes, and writes quotes at the top of all blog entries – it is just a fantastic thing. I never realised until now how much I appreciated a good Index! And just look at those A.A Milne quotes just waiting to be quoted…


So on to the blog!  I spent the weekend on the Isle of Wight which was absolutely fabulous – those photos will follow soon as I need to wade through them. But prepare to be chilled by the Sunset and inspired by the blue skies because it was beautiful over there and we were so lucky with the weather. For now though, tonight we wandered up to the Woods. We’re incredibly lucky to have them right on our doorstep and even more so that they are practically unspoiled.



No-one disturbed us as we coaxed and persuaded Maisy to pose…she takes a lot of persuading these days as she finds the outside world much more interesting than the lens of a camera! But pose she did, of sorts anyway. It took some tennis ball bribery.




The pictures don’t capture the smell of the yellow fields (hayfever inducing) and the scent of the bluebells covering the Forest floor, you’ll just have to imagine those.

This evening was also the first chance that I got to capture the mythical flying dog on camera…she does exist! It looks even weirder frozen on camera than it does in person, who knew that dogs feet disappeared completely when they ran!




Stay posted – more photos will follow later this week and Wedding season kicks in again on Saturday which will keep us busy once more!

“In the winter she curls up around a good book and dreams away the cold.”

When we got up this morning it was still -4C outside – and this was at eight am! The only thing for it was to head out with the camera and get some shots, and I’m pretty glad that we did. It was absolutely freezing but completely worth it. Only one day left of the challenge after today but I’ve fallen in love with Photography all over again!

Today we revisted ‘The Bunnies.’ The hut is completely restored now and although there is a little bit of caution tape around it (not sure why) it looks good and almost identical to the previous one. It was great to get some shots again, it’s an iconic feature of the Hampshire landscape around these parts.

The Bunnies is one of my favourite locations, it’s nearly always been on my route to work wherever I’ve worked in the past and I often go for my daily dose of calm. Just minutes away from major roads and motorways, it’s a peaceful little haven that I absolutely adore.

And this last shot below was a lucky chance shot on the way home – they were too far away to capture properly but I’m still happy with the result. Don’t look too closely, telegraph poles and wires have been removed…!
