A birthday photo walk in Bristol

As my younger son’s birthday fell in half-term, we wanted to actually do something to celebrate. But, just as he didn’t know what he wanted as presents, he didn’t know what he wanted to do either. We talked briefly about a trip to London, but soon rejected it on the grounds of being both expensive and time-consuming. Then my son mentioned that he needed to do some landscape photography for his art homework. So we...

The Gallery: Macro

I like a bit of macro photography. For me, it’s pretty much always flowers. This time of year is great – the garden is changing so fast that something that was in full bloom two weeks ago is dead, but something else amazing has replaced it.

Project 365 Week 1

I’ve had it in mind to take part in Project 365, hosted by The Boy and Me for a long time now. Basically you take a photo every day and you share it.I love taking photos. I’m a parent blogger who takes lots of photos of her kids. But I am also a parent blogger who never shares recognisable photos of her kids on her blog. Which is why I’ve never taken part in 365 before. It didn’t seem to make sense for me.But...
