A Photo a Day #176

Morris On

Today I went to Poole Quay where they were holding a folk music festival. Traditional Morris dancers were out in their droves and were a fabulous opportunity for photography. I took 276 pictures today!

A Photo a Day #169


This was taken less than an hour ago at Gosport seafront. It was one of those rare times when everything aligned itself for a great shot. A little cropping and a small amount of brightening was all I did to the image in editing.

Squirrel in South Park

I took this photo a few years ago now, but I still think it's a decent shot. It was taken in Bournemouth's South Park.

Making the Most of It

It was nice to see quite  few beach hut owners out and enjoying the small amount of sunshine we were having a few weeks ago. The contradiction of the sky and the woman's optimistic clothing was something I drew together in post production. I kind of like the bleak quality.

In the Penny Arcade

We always went to the amusement arcades as children and happily spent time winning and losing, losing and winning on the 2p slots. Some people are children forever!

5 Summer Skin Must-Haves for Pale Skin

Whether I wanted to or not, I don't tan. This is something I have come to accept. There's nothing wrong with being pale- I enjoy it- but I do like to give myself a bit of colour in the Summer months. Here are some products I've been using recently to give my pale skin a touch of Summer glow.

Dig Deep

This is a real blast for the past for me, harking back to memories of local fetes where the 'Lucky Dip' was always an exciting prospect for a child. We were easily pleased back then.

A Photo a Day #160


When in an amusement arcade: take photos. I'm not sure what this is called, but if you're a comedy fan, you might get the reference in the title.

Maisie & Kevin

Maisie has had her little toy mouse, Kevin, since she was about 9 weeks old. She loves carrying him in her mouth and playing with him.

Cuckoo Spit
I believe this is cuckoo spit- froth created by Froghopper Nymphs- but I am not sure as it usually is not so beautifully transparent.

A Photo a Day #153


You're going to see a few macro nature photos in early June as I went for an evening stroll and got lucky capturing some nice images. As usual, any tips would be much appreciated.

Creepy Creek

Of course I had some fun bringing out the red and blue here! It reminded me of being a kid jumping across this stream to cross it. The rope swing is also reminiscent of one me and my best friend found as young teenagers and the raucous laughter that followed when she fell in and we saw her trainer flow upstream! Good times.

Wild Horses

A family of wild horses in the New Forest. They are not at all worried about humans; as you drive through they graze right by the roadside in large groups.

Trip to the Coast

Two sets of people walking towards Southsea beach. This was taken on manual and clearly over-exposed, but with some filtering it does reflect the hot sunny weather and some interesting shadows are cast.

A Photo a Day #147


This was an incredible show even though poor Neil was unwell and a tad croaky. We are going to see The Divine Comedy again in December- that'll be the third time in little more than a year!
