#MySundayPhoto – Purple Haze 

Whilst en-route to the shops earlier this week I felt the urge to pull over and snap a few shots of my surroundings. It was a warm summers evening, the sky was a pale blue and the impending sunset gave the clouds a purple haze.

There was an air of magic to the evening, whether it was the fact that I had a bottle of Rose chilling in the fridge awaiting my return or simply that Id had a great day with a good friend gabbing in the garden… either way things felt good.

BBQs, beers, tunes, family, friendship and fun all to be lavished whilst lazing in the summer sun, there’s nothing quite like it.… Read more from this post

#MySundayPhoto – Time Out

Here we are on yet another Sunday sharing yet another photo. I’ll try to keep my waffle to a minimum as I’m sure you’re sick to the back teeth of reading my random rants which usually accompany my Sunday shots.

It’s been a busy week with one thing or another, it’s only to get worse with the summer holidays fast approaching. I feel that come a fortnights time when the kids have broken up for the summer holidays I may well need more time shooting such shots as the one which I’m sharing in this post.

Moody snaps of the rolling countryside where the air is fresh (not blue from sibling rivalry) , the surroundings are peaceful (the total opposite to our house with the kids in full flow), the view is breath-taking (unlike at home where’s it’s more often overwhelming) and there is a sense of serenity.… Read more from this post

#MySundayPhoto – Supreme Sunset

Happy Sunday folks, it’s officially the end of yet another weekend and whilst I haven’t done an awful lot other than work bar shifts and nurse a hang over and half I’ve at least enjoyed my weekend for once.

The weathers been a bit off and although I’d love to be out in the garden getting drunk on the making use of the decking we’ve spent most of our weekend catching up on the housework and keeping the kids entertained with board games and such like indoors.

I often find myself gazing out of the window usually whilst scrubbing pots or busy typing at the laptop.… Read more from this post

#MySundayPhoto – Red Or Dead

Given that I’m feeling like shit warmed up I’ve not really felt much like snapping photos this weekend. I did however have a little time earlier in the week to get close up and personal with the flowers at my in-laws.

I love the colour red but am sadly unable to wear anything of this shade or colour as being a ‘ginge’ it clashes terribly with my hair.

I have often toyed with the idea of buying a pair of red heels or a red handbag to accessorise my daily shades of black. I guess a little colour may brighten my look but it’s either red or dead with me as I find it very difficult to pull off this colour successfully.… Read more from this post

#MySundayPhoto – For The Love Of Foxgloves

The smells of freshly cut grass and distant BBQ smoke wafted in the air as I knelt upon my in-laws garden, camera in my hand snapping photos of the flowers whilst bathing in the mid-afternoon sun. The kids were busy happily running amuck along the lawn as the dog dawdled happily behind them sniffing each and every plant pot as she went by.

A sense of tranquility and peace washed over me as I slipped off my shoes and ran my toes through the grass. It may have only been for half an hour but they were thirty much-needed minutes which somehow set my mood for the evening ahead.… Read more from this post

#MySundayPhoto – ‘I Can’t Get No Satisfaction’

The weekend is once again over, Sunday has almost come to a close and despite having ticked off numerous chores from the never-ending list I feel absolutely no satisfaction whatsoever.

I know, it sounds far too much like that classic Rolling Stones track, whether it’s the weather, a touch of tiredness or just a bout of the blues, I’m craving the five B’s (biscuits, Baileys, Bridget Jones, blogging and my bed) all of which seem to do the trick when I’m feeling this way out.

It may be June but as you can see from the sky, it’s far from summer and my mood seems to be echoing the weather with the ominous grey clouds hanging heavy.… Read more from this post
