This week I have been playing with my big camera, which is if you are curious a Nikon D60, my family got it for me one Christmas and it’s my tech baby, he .. yes he’s a he, called Tom has a few knocks, paint marks and a crack on the plastic screen (not on the LCD screen before you ask)..
But he works perfectly.. I would like to get another one in future.. probably name that one Peter.. (obscure Harry Potter reference)
This was taken in my garden, it’s a Great Tit, one of my newest feathered friends to visit my garden feeder, I have two, one from Amazon and one from Wilkinsons.. they are great, cheap and perfect for a small garden, unfortunately I cannot find the Wilko bird table on their website but I am sure you can find it in store!
This chap, and the Longtails aren’t afraid of me so I can get some wonderful photos of them feeding.
Until next time
For the past two weeks of the summer holidays we have basically been stuck inside, it’s rained every day this week and then when it hasn’t rained, it’s been insanely windy..
So on the Friday, during a break in the wind and rain we went for a walk, mainly to get some unhealthy snacks to watch a film, but it was nice to get out finally and stretch the legs and blow some cobwebs away..
My neighbor has this bush in her front garden, and I had been waiting for the day the butterflies would flock to it, so walking past it I always look and to my delight it was covered in butterflies of all shapes and sizes!
This was the nearest one I could get a photo of, it’s such a shame these beautiful creatures only last for a short period of time and then they’re gone..
But I guess if they stuck around all year everyone would be fed up of seeing them.
Until next time
Oh look another sky photo hah! I don’t think will ever tire of taking photographs of the sky.
A dark cloudy day, a sunshine filled sky, snow rain or hail, I will snap a photograph of the sky, I just wish my camera could pick up the stars too!
It makes me feel a sense of wonder, looking up at the sky.. are we alone? Or are there hundreds of planets out there with someone else equally fascinated by the sky wondering the same.

I posted earlier in the week about when we had that lovely meal for my aunts surprise birthday dinner, my favorite photos I’ve taken this week are of her flowers in her garden.
They may give me hayfever (I think I said something similar last week hah) but I love photographing flowers!
Until next time
I decided to change the Photograph day over to Sunday, seems more fitting as sometimes my favorite photos I’ve taken have been at the weekend rather than the week.
It has been a scorcher of a week this week, the sky has been blue and Mr Sun has been hanging high in the sky making me feel all horrid thanks to the hayfever with inevitably happens whenever its hot and sunny.
I am not a fan of the sun and heat, but the sky has been stunning! Happy fluffy clouds dotted about.
I however am doing the rain dance daily.
This weeks photograph Friday was taken on Sunday – the children decided to have a heist.. a sweet heist!!
They snuck in our room at some point in the morning and raided the nappy bag that contained all the sweets I had saved from their school friends birthdays and had themselves a little feast in their bedroom.. along with some lego cards from sainsburys.
I’ve just been far to busy that I once again forgot about Photograph Friday!! Not to worry.. I have this to share this week.
Over the past seven or so weeks we’ve been growing tomatoes from seeds A brought home from school, I’m not the most green fingered person so I was sure death would occure but here we are, weeks down the line and they are growing wonderfully!
My mum has taken them to repot them and bring one back so we can continue growing them and hopefully have actual tomatoes!!!
Until Next time
