I love light. I love trying to take pictures that I’m told I shouldn’t take. I’ve frustrated myself rather this afternoon, after seeing this awesome shot from my newest photographer crush on instagram. @me_and_orla: "Shooting into the #light again! Oh what a lovely light. It took me a long time to realise that it's ok […]
Comments welcome. I have no idea what I’m doing. Does it show?
I don’t know that I need a better camera after all if I can get pics like this with my PowerShot. What do you think?
I love this time of year in the garden. Promise of fruits to come. Glorious colours in flowers – a french marigold I’m told. And hidden treasures. This was behind where I took out a bunch dead plants bearing berries, after the toddler thought they might be food. (They weren’t. I don’t know what they […]
Couldn’t resist the title, but I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
Apologies for my brief absence. To make up for it, four photos today. Another revisitation of the tulip – so bright that you can see the teeth marks almost 😉 A lilac shot, chosen because I was pleased to have the focus in the middle of the picture, rather than at the front. Good to […]

Part of the reason I want to improve my photography is because on my other blog, Making it up, I do product reviews. And I want my pictures to be pinnable and beautiful and for me to enjoy writing up the reviews and sharing the pictures. So we did a product shoot in the garden […]
We went visiting the other day. Interesting to go picture hunting in someone else’s garden. I couldn’t get the picture of the blossom blowing from the tree – it looked like a blizzard, but shooting motion isn’t something I’ve got into yet. So instead, I grabbed a picture of this little guy. Given how he […]
There’s just a hint of pink to the tips of this daisy’s petals. There are no hints to this marigold. Also known as Mary’s gold, we started growing these after Tim’s stint in the garden’s at Kentwell Hall. The leaves are good for bites, burns and stings, much better than dock leaves. They’re prettier than […]
