If I could choose my memories, if I could keep any number of moments it would be the care free evenings of watching the sun go down and the colours of the rivers change. It would be seeing the reflection of a single swan, framed in a halo of golden sunlight as the last rays of Summer gracefully dip across the horizon. That’s the kind of thing I would store, for when the time comes that I can no longer find these moments for myself and can only rely on my photographic memory to conjour what I once witnessed for real.


“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”

My job takes me all over the County and usually the areas I end up aren’t that Photogenic. But I love going to Romsey via Stockbridge. Both are beautiful quaint towns and neither require a motorway or busy road to access them. Coincidentally my route also takes me past my favourite places to Photograph – so today was quite a pleasant day!

Instead of stopping for lunch I hopped out of the car for a few minutes at a couple of locations to grab some shots. I keep meaning to go back to Romsey on a weekend and do some Christmas shopping but I never get the time – it’s a lovely town.

It was peaceful and nice to spend a few minutes enjoying the view. Until some swans hissed at me. As payback I’ve cloned them out of my shots.

Then I dropped by the Autumn Driveway – I keep an eye on it all year round because it’s photogenic regardless, especially in the snow. So I think I’ve got the last of the Autumn shots out of it today…
