“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!

It’s after Christmas and so there should be at least one frosty day. At least one opportunity for hats, scarves and gloves and hot chocolates by the far. Instead we’re watching Daffodils bloom, grass grow, trees sprout and animals run around like it’s the middle of Spring.

It just doesn’t feel right! However it was nice to spend a few hours sitting on the meadow enjoying the fact that the temperature was manageable and the ground warm.




In the North of the country it’s a different story. Yes, the temperature may be good but the water levels are rising and the floods are horrendous. This time two years ago most of the meadow was underwater and yet we’re barely squelching through the grass to get onto it this year.




It’s bizarre. Scary too. The weather around us is changing so much and so quickly. Who knows when we’ll next see snow!

Photography today has given me the spark to think about what my next photo-project will be. 2016 will feature a few more Weddings, some trips here and there but above all that, an epic holiday to the USA. I’m considering whether the photo-a-day challenge will fit with my life this year or not… watch this space!
