Friday & Saturday

Last night was a bit busy! We were going to Manchester to see Steven Wilson, and had to set off at 5. I got in from work, got changed, cooked pizzas then we set off. It’s 1 hour 20 mins to get to Manchester in good traffic, but getting from Sheffield to Manchester can get quite bad traffic wise – we were expecting this but not a 2 hour wait to get over Woodhead Pass. When we finally got to the gig turns out we’d only missed 30 mins of a 2 hour set so it wasn’t that bad. No photography inside, so had to make do with a “Queues likely” sign, and the back of the tour top I bought.

Today is nice and sunny, and normally I’d want to go out taking photos, but after being stuck in the car for 5 hours yesterday (exclusing work commute times) the idea of climbing back into a car is less than appealing. Instead I decided to tidy the garden up a bit and photograph some of the flowers which have come out to say hello.

Tropical Butterfly House, Sheffield

As the weather is pants I’ve been looking for things to do inside. Today I decided to visit the Tropical Butterfly House which is only about 15 mins away from where I live. I’m actually quite scared of butterflies, birds… well animals in general really so it was quite a big deal going by myself.

The idea was that I could have a go at doing some macro photography with things which move, in preparation for spring and summer 🙂
