Top banana weekend. Weather was great (even if I do now have a bit of a tan! 😦 ). Back to normality now.

There are some more photos over on my Facebook Page, they were all taken from the crowd with my little compact.

Busy times : )

I am long overdue a proper update on here. I decided to stop posting pictures up each day and focus on a blog entry maybe once a week. Then as I fell out of the habit of updating it, I’ve fallen out of the habit of blogging altogether.

I shall attempt to cover all the bases starting from where I left off…

Thursday – I was asked to photograph a local gig night. Most of the pictures are on my Facebook page here although this is ‘Photo of the Day’.

The day after post I went to the zoo with work. There are perks to the job and being paid to take children to the zoo is one of them – especially when they are 14/15 and so can walk around the zoo without supervision. Managed to grab a few shots of the various animals.

Saturday we spent a lot of the day out, and we went out for dinner; then we had a later tea and watched quite a few episodes of Breaking Bad. Nice relaxing day.

On Sunday I met some family in the Botanical Gardens in town and did a mini photoshoot. Again the pictures of that are on Facebook, but I found this lovely Japanese Acer tree which had turned a delightful colour so did a shot under that.

On Saturday, after going out for dinner, we went to the Oriental supermarket across the road from the restaurant. I had originally gone in with the intention of buying mushrooms but instead came out with a rather large pomegranate. Most certainly the biggest pomegranate I have ever seen!

I then needed to obtain some prints (news of which shall be announced at the weekend!) so got my good friend Mr C to use his magical printing powers – then I popped round to his abode to collect said prints, and do a quick Movember shoot to show off his ‘tashe.

Which, I think, brings us pretty much up to date so far. There are some exciting things in the pipe line, but I don’t like to mention them until they have happened. Hopefully there will be two updates this weekend with news in them – there is also a trip to the Bakewell Christmas market this weekend to look forward too… and the opening for Advent Calendars 😀

As Seasons Change

I’ve had a busy week. I’ve been working on some promo shots for York based band Scream Arena, registering as self employed, off out to gigs, photographing a black tie event, going to the zoo….! I’m sure there is something I have missed. Anyway, I need to go out in an hour as I am photographing a gig and I could really do with doing pilates and cooking myself some tea!


kB’s band played another gig this week, this time in Sheffield at West Street Live.

Really don’t like taking photos at gigs if I’m going to be honest, and it doesn’t help when kB says “Yeah hmm hmm they’re OK I guess”. Next time I wont bother then!


Went all the way to Nottingham to play a gig (well obviously I wasn’t playing).
Taking photos in these dingy venues isn’t a great experience, the lighting is bad and there isn’t much of it. Ho-hum though, one must make the best one can out of such a situation, not much use moaning about it as that won’t make anything any better!

Getting Closer… : D

This week has blurred it’s way past since Ofsted went. Wednesday night all of the stress left and there was that weird feeling, like when you’ve been stressing about an exam, then you do the exam, then you are left feeling all ???????
I really wanted an early night but Krys overran at work so he rearranged going out to the day after meaning I was up until 11 dying my hair (it’s a pinky-purple now, which everyone seems to love apart from me. Although I will admit it has grown on me a lot since Weds).
Thursday I went food shopping, Friday we both went Christmas shopping (we collect all our Nectar points up and spend them all on booze and good food : D), then today we went to get the last bits for Christmas cooking/baking and I went out with my friend to see her friends band.

I am so excited about Christmas it is unreal. Although last night I didn’t appreciate having bad dreams about cooking Christmas dinner >:-|
