Standing by the edge of the lake,Breathing in the serenity and calm,The sun rose in the distance,And the frost touched my cheeks.A stranger asked if I was ok,I smiled and said I was fine.I must have looked melancholy,Soaking in the beauty of the lake.
On a break in Dorset, I am enjoying digging my camera out again. It’s been a while since I did some mindful photography and I am pleased with the results from yesterday.

Two weeks ago I was given a lovely bunch of tulips and I have loved watching them age, and I realised today what a metaphor they are for growing older and seeing beauty where many might only see decay.

I tend to shoot from the hip and people rarely realise I am photographing. After about 25mins, a security guard approached meContinue reading “The pictures they didn’t want you to see!”
I know it’s a cliche, but I can’t believe that a week ago I was sat in The Arc waiting for SnowApple having just had a lot of fun watching Rughu Dixit on the main stage. We were SO lucky with the weather…. It rained a little on our first day so my festivalContinue reading “Larmer Tree 2015 – it was fun as always!”
