It’s time for the final set of prompts for 2020 and I’ve only just realised that it’s actually a 53 week year so apologies to those of you who thought you only had 4 weeks remaining! I’ve really enjoyed seeing what everyone has shared through the year, not just the images but the stories that […]
I’m not quite sure what happened this month but as lockdown started I felt more inspired than ever and I’ve been busy creating new textures. There has been a lot of playing around with paints, inks and print making techniques which has been messy and great fun. So much fun that I’ve ended up creating […]
The end of the year is now in sight and I’ve been giving a lot of thought to 2021 and how to proceed with the project and group. I love the friendly community that has grown over the last three years on Facebook and I enjoy seeing the wide variety of photos that are shared […]

Shooting wide open with the Lensbaby Velvet 85 – my tips for better focus.

I’m really excited to share the news that I have recently been invited to become a Lensbaby Ambassador. If you follow my blog or are connected with me on social media I’m sure you will already know how much I love my Lensbaby lenses so it really is an honour to be invited to be […]
Every month when I post the next prompts I notice how I’ve neglected the blog recently and feel guilty. But not for long! Just before we headed into lockdown I’d been feeling a little restless and uninspired – photography wise, not life in general. I wasn’t worried, I get that feeling every so often and […]
Time for the next set of weekly photo prompts already! We may be halfway through the year but it’s not too late to join in, we have new people joining the group all the time. All you need to do is take a photo during the week inspired by the prompt and share with the […]
It’s hard to believe that at the end of this set of prompts we will halfway through the year! It seems like time should drag during lockdown but somehow it’s been flying by. I know lots of countries are starting to see some easing of restrictions now but this is another set that can all […]
It’s time for a new last of prompts and once again they are hopefully all ones that can be done at home, or close by if you are allowed out. Week 22 is one to really get you thinking and I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone does with that one! If you haven’t joined […]
How quickly and unexpectedly life can change, the world looks very different than it did four weeks ago when I set the last set of prompts and I’m sure most of us will have been affected in some way or another. From this month onwards (for as long as necessary) I will be setting prompts […]
