When Snappers Get Together

Just had a great evening at the local pub with my photographer friend Pete Gawlik.

I’d hate to be a fly on the wall listening to a couple of snappers talking photography – cos I’m sure that a fly would get bored, – but we just love talking about f-stops, back-focusing, flashgun technique and the like.

You’re welcome to join us for a good chinwag!

Maisie Rose is Christened

I was delighted to be asked by Gemma and Chris to take the photos on the occasion of their daughter Maisie Rose’s Christening.

Maisie’s christening took place earlier today at St Wilfrid’s Church in Hayward’s Heath and was performed by the Rev Ray Smith.  After the ceremony, a party was held in the Cafe/Bar in the village square in Bolnore Village.

A few holiday snaps

Linda and I have just returned from a few days in the Lake District, staying at our favourite B&B – Yewfield near Ambleside.  The scenery in the Lakes is simply breathtaking; the weather wasn’t exactly brilliant while we were there – rain is a feature of Lake District life – so the opportunities for photography were limited, but here are a few snaps I took during a break in the weather.
