Appleby Horse Fair

Images from June 2018 Probably the most looked forward to event of the year, for me anyway, always guaranteed a great time with wonderful people. Sadly wont be happening this year but that can only mean next year will be better than ever.

Dance everywhere

Caught these two rehearsing in the sunshine on Blackpool prom yesterday, love how the people sat down are watching them and probably wishing they could still do that.

JD2 in Blackpool

Hidden Treasures

I have been neglecting my blog for a while now..family, projects (2) new Independent Creatives group ..all sorts of everything leaving me little time to get out with camera.

I couldn’t resist..could you?

North Sea, mist and the faint line of the horizon..my thalassotherapy

It was hard to see where the sky ended and the sea started at the weekend but this grey light is something I love and something that inspires me at this time of year. I have recently had the privilege of being in the company of someone who also loves this light so this isContinue reading “North Sea, mist and the faint line of the horizon..my thalassotherapy”
