Imagine my surprise in mid June, sitting in front of my computer at the end of a pretty long Wednesday, when a nice little email from Olympus popped into my mailbox, announcing a 1 day Paris workshop with an Olympus Ambassador I have followed on Instagram for some time. I didn’t need to think twice and with the teenager taking photography GCSE it was a great opportunity to spend some time with her as well as give her a great Photography experience.Read More
I haven’t provided an update on my camera situation on the blog so thought a quick post about a recent photo I took was in order!
Until last year I was a Nikon user through and through, I borrowed some of my Dad’s lenses but he changed over to Olympus, last year I took the plunge and also! I took a gamble and purchased a second hand camera from a shop in Watford called SRS Microsystems.Read More
Holidays are so important to us as a family (as they probably are to you as well), we all work hard, be it at school or work and we all look forward to the big summer holiday!
The past few years have involved a trip to the Spanish mainland, a Canary or Balearic Island, as much as we like them we did start to get bored of these and fancied something different. This year we went to Kos! We mainly chose Kos because of it's pretty much guaranteed sunshine in August, as well as good food and awesome sea!Read More
Blogging once again has been a bit hit and miss recently! But I said to myself I would share a photo form Wembley yesterday for MySundayPhoto!Read More
With the Beast from the East about to hit I may well regret discussing how cold it was during half term when we visited Devon.
Having gone straight back to work this.....Read More
Well what a week it has been! Spent Monday to Friday down in Devon!
More on that to come, however I some how managed to tweak my back whilst packing up the car for the return journey!
I took somewhere in the region of 500 photo's on my camera (Dad's Olympus!) and many many more on the iPhone, but I due to this stupid back I have yet had the time to go through them and select some to pull together in a post.Read More
Last night we went for a stroll around London to look at the Lumiere London exhibition that has been on over different locations around London (unfortunately it seemed that millions of others decided to do the same.... it was packed!).Read More
So it has been back to work for me this week, that has mean't the travelling about the place has started again fro 2018. Although I am not going to grumble, 2018 has treated me very well so far, in that my Dad gave me his old iMac (old as in about a year....bonus!!) and I have ordered a new car, which I left stupidly late. Due to the miles I do I lease my cars and my current one is going back on 19th January and until Friday I hadn't sorted a new one!Read More
It has been a funny old week! Very busy work wise driving over 870 miles, plenty of meetings, extreme crochet and a quick photo shoot, yes me in front of the camera which I'm never 100% comfortable with.Read More
So if you have read many of my tech related posts or follow me on any form of social media you will know that I am a massive Apple fan boy, my phone history has been dominated by the iPhone apart from a brief flirt back to an android phone with the HTC One..... needless to say we didnt get on!
So when I was approached by Three to test out a brand new Samsung S8 Plus I jumped at the chance! Not only had I read about this handset in the run up to the release but have also been a fan of its predecessors the S7 and more importantly the S7 Edge. I have also been intrigued with what Samsung have been doing with the Samsung Gear 360 camera and Gear VR.Read More
It has been a busy few weeks and this has left little time for blogging, I am conscious (again) that I have not posted in a while so thought I would share this picture I have just posted to Instagram of Katy (Teen Geek).Read More
Yesterday was a strange day weather wise, one minute brilliant blue sky with some amazing white fluffy clouds, the next moment very over cast and meant that a sudden down pour was imminent!
I decided to pay a visit to another National Trust property (I have membership so might as well make the most of it!), I couldn't tempt the family to come with but luckily my cousin Luke was on hand to come for a walk and seek inspiration from the amazing Belton House.Read More
You may have seen my post earlier this week on Instagram, a picture I took of my dad in his seat at White Hart Lane. For this weeks #MYSUNDAYPHOTO I have decided to share a picture I took at the same time.Read More
It is a day alway filled with apprehension, a trip to Wembley in the FA Cup, this place is and continues to be a bit of a difficult place for us to play at, our record is poor. I was hoping that this year would be different but alas no history just repeated itself!Read More
A bank holiday weekend always means doing something with Teen Geek! We have been to the popular London Museums a number of times, especially the Science Museum, so this time we want to go somewhere new.Read More
In an up and coming podcast episode on Meet the Parentsw here I talk about the kids growing up and time flying (yes I've blogged about this before).Read More
The cold weather has gone for now and been replaced by some nice sunshine, well it had yesterday!
With my new job we are given a Fitbit and I am trying as much as possible to get my steps up to the 10,000 a day target! When working from home trust me this is sometimes a challenge and takes planning!
I intend therefore to make the most of my weekends! Yesterday I didnt manage to hit my 10,000 but not far off, but due to a little diversion on the way to pick my dad up for football I managed to grab this lovely picture!
It's an area outside Stevenage called Bennington with a number of public footpaths which I want to explore!
Since moving in October we have been thankful for the access to a shed size storage unit at Safestore. Everything from the old shed is in their including the Christmas decorations. Having packed up the tree etc yesterday it was time to return them to our unit.
Since visiting, something has always appealed to me about the straight lines and symmetry of the corridors has always appealed to me, and yesterday decided to take a picture. This is the result, to save energy the lights in store are on motion sensors so my end of the corridor is light whilst the end is dark!Read More
It's that time of year when the tree needs to go up, we don't subscribe to the convention of putting the tree up 12 days before Christmas! It usually tends to go up on or around the 1st December. I therefore thought it would be fitting to make my first #MYSUNDAYPHOTO of December a festive one. I'm also guessing that a number of fellow bloggers will show a picture of The Christmas Tree itself but I've gone for this shot!
If I don't speak to you before Christmas, have a good one all!!
