Bristol in the Snow

Photos from a Bristol snow day (Feb ’19), because who doesn’t like Bristol? And who doesn’t like snow? And it was kind of magical…but also cold and wet. (Click to enlarge)

Down the Weser River

(Photos taken along the banks of the Weser River in Minden, Germany – Jan 2019) The Weser starts at Hann. Münden in Lower Saxony where two rivers meet and join – the Werra and the Fulda. As weserstein or weser stone inscription by Carl Natermann (1899) states “the Werra and Fulda kiss” and in doing…

A little day in Bath

One of the perks of being back to full-time study is the re-emergence of school holidays. As its’s generally all joyfully hot and long summer days in Aus, I decided to fly to England and Germany…. in January. The reasons being 1. friendly faces 2. I actually do quite like winter 3. I’m never more…

Featherdale

Summer holiday’s are simultaneously feverishly anticipated by the kids and increasingly dreaded by the adults. Cue the incessant brain-wracking for activities to keep little active minds and bodies busy. For my sister it means making use of her trusty annual pass at Featherdale Wildlife Park (feat. a plethora of Aussie animals) to stem the potential…

Christmas Bokeh

  Some Christmas tree pics with the canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens, so far it has been very nifty. This is the first prime lens that I’ve had and I’m excited to explore new angles, framing and perspective, along with working a little bit harder to get the great shots. I like the idea…

Netherby Homestead

Some pictures taken on a walk around Fagan Park (Galston) and the Netherby homestead (which included a blacksmith workshop) on a “winter’s” day. I spent a good majority of the time taking pictures of lavender and bees. It reminded me of the Emily Dickinson poem , To make a prairie (1755) To make a prairie it…

Harrogatian

A few snaps of the Harrogate life taken in 2015 –  2017 whilst working in this seemingly unchanging, bubble-capsule-like town. A strange, but endearing place. Having over two years of conversation with various residing town folk I’m not convinced anyone actually knows how they ended up in Harrogate.

The Iceland Project

There’s nothing so good as exploring the world with friends and documenting the experience along the way. This 4 day trip was mainly spent in Reykjavík Nov 2017, along with a few day tours to see some of the well known site. Alas, it was too cloudy to see the northern lights (so that one’s…

“The general Yorkshire area”

10 points if you get the title reference for this post. I had a jolly good time walking in the Yorkshire countryside and here are some pics to prove it. The first two were taken on a walk around the Barden Moor Reservoirs with a very wise friend and the best kind of conversation (still…

We’re going to the zoo..

A Chester Zoo kind of day, and of course the camera came along for the adventure. The elephants were a big drawing point with two recent elephant calf additions. Also I can’t say I’m a huge butterfly fan, but I do like taking pictures of them.
