Daughters new dress

Today instead of .... oh no dads got his camera out! my daughter says 'can I be a model'? I thing this had something to do with her getting a new dress and coat and the aquisition of a swivel posing stool (something to mess about on)? well those that know me realise that I never miss the opportunity to take pictures...

Carriages and the Castle

I've been thinking of what to do for the upcoming set subject at my local photography club competition of 'old and new' Whilst I was on holiday in Weymouth we went to Corfe castle and it's neighbouring train station, now I know steam trains aren't that new but in comparison to the castle I think it will pass as being new enough..... what do you think?

Calke walk...

5 people turned up for the Ticknal walk, nine miles, 60 shots and probably only one or two that worked, the one below is one of the first. a very hot day, the shop at the reservoir was closed so the cream tea at Calke was very appreciated. 



Look a lesser spotted photographer



theres always one straggler 


Well you've got to get one pic of the posse
