Happy New Year! Well we are almost in a new year and it’s time to start all over again with another weekly photo project, I might even join in myself this year for a change. Here are the prompts for January… If you are new to the project there are very few rules, simply take […]
Do you ever take a set of photos, dismiss them immediately because they somehow aren’t quite what you had in mind then stumble across them months later and wonder why on earth you were so dismissive of them?Yes, me too! I few months ago I discovered my old Lensbaby mobile lens lurking deep in the […]
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 […]

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 […]

I must confess I’ve been feeling a little stuck in a rut with my photography recently. Every time I think of getting out the camera I hear a little voice saying ‘you’ve shot that before’ and I lose motivation. Which is nonsense really, every time we shoot something we do so through fresh eyes so […]
Recently I’ve been struggling for motivation with my photography. I sometimes feel like I’m shooting purely to feed my social media and once that feeling kicks in I find myself totally uninspired. So this month I didn’t expect to be sharing anything for the Serenity Circle but inspiration suddenly struck while I was doing my […]
For some reason I’ve managed to be away from home at the last two month ends so I’ve missed out on the Lensbaby Blog Circle. Obviously I can post from anywhere but this year I’ve been making the effort to be offline as much as possible if I’m away from home. Social media can feel […]
Are you a podcast fan? I must admit that for a long while I couldn’t see the point of podcasts but when I started to work from home I soon realised it would be easy to become very sedentary so I started to make the effort to have a daily walk. And that’s when the […]
I was determined not to miss another Serenity Circle blog post but at the same time I was feeling a little uninspired. The local children had all returned to school so I knew it would be lovely and quiet if I was to visit a garden but I was struggling to get excited by the […]
