My boy.


It has been a beautiful day. 
The earth is warming up, and I am feeling like I am ready to move and get out again. 
This is a quick shot of my beautiful boy, with his school shirt over his head. For some reason, I really took to this image of him. Big school boy, everything being absorbed like a sponge... Where is the time going....

Annie Laurie

Last week I decided to go fog chasing. You may wonder what on earth fog chasing is. It's where a mad  photographer gets it into her head that while she can see fog, there are pictures to be taken that could end up being somewhat poetic....hopefully....
So, after packing my poor child into her car seat ( once again ) I went driving to find something that spoke to me. Unfortunately, Id left it a wee bit late, ok, a lot too late, to capture anything remotely mystical .... HANG ON!
Have I told you who I happened to meet on the road side, while I was scrounging??
A Lady. Yep. AND she has been to the moon. You can't get more mystical and interesting than that, can you. AND, wait for it, she has even written a book. ( you can find it here http://www.amazon.com/The-Mad-Thing-1-ebook/dp/B005HDJ9NY/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1314589346&sr=1-1 ) 
No matter that this lady is stuck in a dog's body. Thats never stopped her telling her wonderful owner, Kym Afford ( who happens to be a fantastic artist ) = ( Ahh, the people you meet! ) all about her adventures and using her imagination. (Here is his page if you want to have a peek at his fab work http://kdafford.com/. )
Anyway, I have some photos of Annie to share instead. Not the landscapeish images I thought I would capture, but something/one just as interesting and wonderful!

A Jolly Engagement!



When My gorgeous cousin Bec asked me to take some photographs of her and her lovely partner, Jolly (thats what we all call him, and it suits!) I felt rather honoured to be the one who gets to record this little, very significant and special,  part of their life journey. 
It's funny, Bec and I hardly ever see each other as we live a distance apart and lead different lives, but when I finally caught up with her and her beloved, it felt a lot like greeting an old friend. Where nothing has really changed, and you can talk to your hearts content, feeling comfortable and at ease. Maybe it's a family thing. Or maybe Bec and Jolly are just lovely, easy going and fun people, that I just happen to have the fortune of being related to! 



Congratulations you two!

Panoramic golden foggy morning.


I finally got around to stitching up the 10 photos I took of this foggy valley. I love the result! It's a pity I can't share the chill and the soggy shoes, the sounds of birds waking up and the awe....
