You Don't Have To Travel Far

You don't have to travel far! I thought I would write about this as if you are like me you see loads of beautiful photos on social media, such as Instagram of far away places and think that you can’t make just as good ones without going to them sort of places too. This couldn't be further from the truth, yes going to the peak district will make it easier to find compositions but you just have to look closer at your surrounding areas to find them closer to home.

Bradgate Park - Photography Walk

I had been looking forward to this one for awhile. Since getting into photography I have thought about the idea of joining a society to share, learn and just have a laugh.

Break Away - Caister-On-Sea

Recently we took a trip to Caister-on-sea, luckily for us Tabitha’s mum has a holiday home there, which makes it easy and cheap to get away. Situated on the east coast of England only a couple of miles from Great Yarmouth, it’s about a 3 hour drive from where we live fortunately I don’t drive I just sit in the passenger seat and relax. The drive down was nice and sunny and as we had left early morning when we arrived we had plenty of time to unpack and settle in.

A Trip Down Memory Lane

I was back home visiting my parents, the dogs needed to be taken out for a walk so we all decided to take them down the river that’s next to my parent’s house. I hadn’t been down there for quite a few years so decided to take my camera along with me (you never know when inspiration may spark). When we got down there the place had changed so much since I had last seen it, but all the memories came back and I just had the urge to take some photos.  I don’t think these photos are anything special but think they capture some of my memories and the feeling of the day.
