My Sunday Photo: Castle Guards

So I’ve finally gotten round to swapping over all the photos from my old laptop to my new one (it’s only been four months!).  While I was I came across this one – though I have no idea where it came from.  I was obviously playing with taking a photo in black and white and filters on my photo app but I quite liked it.  Anyone got any idea where it was taken?

My Sunday Photo: Whitby on a cold but sunny-ish day

I don’t need it to be summer to go to the seaside. I love to go any time of year, rain or shine or when the clouds start to roll in. My favourite seaside town is Whitby and we go there a lot. This is my favourite view from up near St. Hilda’s church.

My Sunday Photo: Candlelight

I love this time of year. The dark nights, the Christmas lights, the cheesy music, and the candles that I seem to be constantly burning. It’s just so much nicer than anything else. I started messing around to try and get a decent shot of a candle’s flame. Then I gave up and just took this, a glowing candle on a dark night.

What about you – are you a candle burner?

Sunday post: I do like to be beside the seaside

We were lucky with the weather this week, though cold the sun shone most days.  Meaning I could take a walk along the local beach (well I say local, it’s a 15 minute drive so I think that counts).  There is nothing better to clear the mind I don’t think than looking out to sea.

My Sunday Photo: Ships Rigging

You wouldn’t necessarily believe it looking at the clouds in this photo but it was a glorious day when we visited the Hartlepool Maritime Experience and toured Britains oldest floating warship, HMS Trincomalee. Every time I’ve visited I’ve tried to get a decent shot of the rigging. It’s never quite been as good as I hoped but I don’t think this is a bad shot…

Made it myself (now to take a decent photo!)

I love being in the kitchen (and not just at party’s – sorry I had to!) and I love baking and cooking.  I spend hours pouring over cookery books and tearing recipes from magazines, planning my next meal or – even better – my next desert.  Unfortunately, not everything I make turns our exactly as planned.

In my family, it was a running joke that if it looked good it would likely taste awful but if it looked awful, then it would likely taste great.  Slowly but surely, though, I think I’m getting there and – over the last year – I’ve noticed that what I make is starting to look more like what is on the page.  Continue reading

My Sunday Photo: By the sea…

At the end of half-term we won’t away for a few days to
South West Scotland, not quite sure what to expect as it’s not somewhere we’d been before but also because it was Scotland at the end of October. I expected rain. We got glorious sunshine. Plus a lovely beach perfect for hunting in rock pools.

Unfortunately, the angle of the sun made most of my photos too dark but this one captures just how glorious the day and the view were I think.

My Sunday Photo: a spooky sarcophagus (just for Halloween)…

In keeping with the season, I thought I would share a photo I actually took this summer on a visit to Witley Court & Gardens and the neighbouring Great Witley Parish Church.

There, we were able to take a tour of the crypt – where this photo was taken and where I get to the “in keeping with the season” as the crypt, like this photo, was just a little bit spooky …

p.s. I’m also quite please how this turned out given it was behind glass – no glare!
