“All you’ll own is earth until you can paint with all the colours of the wind.”

There are some things that just need to be captured on camera, to be remembered forever. Not huge moments – not all the time. Today whilst we were wandering through a frosty forest, the first thought that hit me when I raised the camera and took a shot of nothing but nature was… ‘It’s so nice not to be photographing someone’s face.’ Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved the Weddings that we’ve had this year and every single one has been fantastic and such an experience. But today was about photographing anything. And it felt so good to be doing it again.

Photographs don’t have to be perfect, but I was impressed with the below capture. Fog, sunshine, rays, cobwebs…all so hard to capture spontaneously and never how they showed up in real life. I looked closer at the below image and noticed the cobweb hanging down through the middle of it, covered in ice. I was almost annoyed at the interruption within my perfect scene. Almost. Then I realised it was all part of the perfect scene.

Today we had some bits and pieces to do so we decided to take hot tea and just drive for a bit, and capture what we could of the morning fog. A curse for so many but a delight for photographers! All of these captures were taken literally on our doorstep. The forest that borders where we live is home to some beautiful scenes, it’s just a huge pain to get to with the dog as the road leading to it has no paths or pavement. So she doesn’t feature today sadly.

So back to those small moments that need to be captured every so often. Today I ticked a few off the list – an image of exactly what it looks like when all around you branches are creaking and frost is melting. That spiders web gently swinging laden with frost. The tiny dew drops framed in sunlight. The shadow of trees as the sun streams through them. Everyday things sometimes, but so beautiful when you have the time to stop and look at them all.

New Years resolution for 2017 – there will be more Photos. Promise.

“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life:

…It goes on.”

Week four is upon us!  For someone who has had barely anytime this week, there are a fair few photographs to share. 2015 has started off with a lot of hectic-ness and things which are taking up time, energy and focus. When I’m not occupied with those things I like to switch off as much as possible – baking the odd bakeable thing, reading and becoming an expert at Catan and beating William every single time. Practically.


Temperatures plummeted mid week and we were collectively scraping ice off of our cars in -6 degrees c temperature, shivering furiously. Then they rocketed and we were opening the window at night to +10 degrees! After the ice storms of last week it has been very strange – but welcome. Signs of spring are here and the builders have started up with the landscaping again planting us a few trees along with a rather annoyingly positioned lamp post.




Work has been going well. I’ve obtained a laptop which is now helping my back pain incredibly as I can work from home in between appointments here and there. But why would you work from home when your office view is like this every morning…


Sunset photos were achieved yesterday evening when my Mother and I were sat on the A34 in a layby with a pancake flat tyre on her BMW. We were on the way to see my Grandad in hospital but unfortunately didn’t make it due to the length of time it took to get the RAC to us. It was getting quite desperate after we’d finished our petrol station bought drinks and so we tucked into Grandad’s egg custard tart. Mainly why we couldn’t then go on to see him empty handed! Today saw us successfully reach the hospital and come home to the smell of delicious roast pork gently cooking away… it’s Sunday. Of course.6
