Love of My Life

Youth had me fooled - I thought I'd found love, But age gave me wisdom, wisdom gave me a shove. I had to keep searching, yet to find 'the one', Then you hit between my eyes, love out of a gun. Swept off my feet, world turned upside down, Couldn't describe this new feeling I'd... Continue Reading →

Herefordshire Mini-Break

We were lucky enough to book a short break away to Herefordshire - a small farm cottage away from the crowds - this gave us an opportunity to see some different sights and even to get some elevation!! We drove down early on Monday morning - avoiding the worst of the traffic with a 5am... Continue Reading →

Grey Day Photography Hike

18-55mm - f8 - 1/125th - ISO100 - Blur & Vignette added in edit It had rained all week, so a decent hike had been out of the question. So when the forecast for Saturday was dry, we ensured we were up extra early and of out the door. We drove the short distance to... Continue Reading →

Who You Would Be?

You arrived in a blur, but I remember so clear, The events of that day, won't forget all my years. Emergency treatment, you stopped breathing en-route, World stopped, there was silence, like someone pressed mute. When surgery was over, you were taken away, Hooked up to machines - and that's where you stayed. For ten... Continue Reading →


Lights switched off hours ago, should be asleep, But my brain wont switch off, and now its got deep. It starts with a memory, a thought from that day, Then changes to worry, that won't go away. Dark thoughts and stresses that seem so much worse, Because night seems surreal, time goes in reverse. My... Continue Reading →

When you look at a glance, you don't always see, The beauty that's there, so this is my plea. Take a moment in time, to stop and observe, Are you seeing the scene for all it is worth? Are you walking along, distracted by life, And taking for granted the views and wildlife. Running through... Continue Reading →

North Downs Weekend

We were lucky enough to spend a few days in the North Downs at the weekend. It was nice to be away from the town. We have been lucky to find our own places of solitude just by walking a few miles, but it has all been a bit much during the pandemic to be... Continue Reading →

These Covid Times

I wrote this during the Pandemic - in the summer of 2020, but haven't shared it before. Some of it is still relevant, but it reminds me of how myself, and a lot of people were feeling at the time. Strange times we live in, nothings the same, we’re learning to play in a whole... Continue Reading →

Failed Sunset Chasing

Long hot sunny yesterday, but in the evening a bit of cloud started to creep in, so an evening sunset chasing was in order on our daily walk - it would also give me a chance to try out the new camera bag. I left the tripod at home on this occasion, and opted for... Continue Reading →

Ebb & Flow

It’s funny how as time goes by, you grow and change and young dreams die. Those dreams you dream before you know, the way that life can ebb and flow. The friends you thought would stick around, are now no longer to be found. Places that you thought were home, you now don’t see, the... Continue Reading →
