Emergence - My Sunday Photo 250617

Emergence – My Sunday Photo 250617 I went to Rousham House with my photography class on Friday.  It was my first visit, but it definitely won’t be my last. I spent a lot of time at the pond watching the emergence of a number of dragonflies.  It took me back… Continue reading »

Taking photographs at Crocodiles of the World

Taking photographs at Crocodiles of the World

I’ve recently discovered the strange experience of visiting places I’ve been to before with my son, without him.  It’s really quite a weird feeling to actually be able to stand still and admire things without having to dash around at 90 miles an hour.  As I’ve mentioned before, this term… Continue reading »

When Dress Up Day goes wrong

When Dress Up Day goes wrong

Just when I think I know my son, he likes to throw a curve ball and put me firmly back in my place.  He’s grown in so many ways this last year and it’s been such a joy to watch.  But my shy, and unsure little boy is still there,… Continue reading »

Enjoying Wheatley Birds of Prey

Enjoying Wheatley Birds of Prey

Last month I spent a few hours with my photography class enjoying Wheatley Birds of Prey.  It wasn’t somewhere I’d been before and as I love seeing these beautiful birds, I was really excited to be going along.  Our tutor had arranged for us to have a couple of hours with… Continue reading »

Conquering fears on Open Farm Sunday

Conquering fears on Open Farm Sunday

It’s not big secret that my 7 year old son takes life at his own pace.  He’s often risk averse and no matter how much encouragement he’s given, he isn’t great at trying new things. It’s often left me feeling a little sad for him, especially when he’s missed out… Continue reading »

A beady eye - My Sunday Photo 110617

A beady eye – My Sunday Photo 110617 I went to Crocodiles of the World on Friday with my photography class.  I’d been a couple of years ago with my son and it’s well worth a visit.  This time round the focus, quite literally was on getting some half way… Continue reading »
