A little hello

Well, it’s been 3 months since my last post and it feels nice to be here again and I hope you enjoy the update. Max arrived safely on the 15th January, and we have all been enjoying and getting used to the new family dynamics that a newborn brings. Rufus is such a sweet and kind boy to his brother, he is very natural with him.

Anyway, the main reason I got my camera out was to take some photographs of the spring flowers blooming here in Kent, for my dear friend Kathryn of Secrets of a Butterfly.    We had been talking about our favouirte flowers, in particular the healing properties of the beautiful little white clusters of Stitch wort, that often grow here alongside the bluebells.  I hope you like the photographs.

Bluebells: Part 2

Be Careful not to squash them little bear!

Yay, I have finally finished the photos from the bluebell walk.  loved this place and keep thinking of it. I can’t wait to get back there.

I did just want to also mention, that I do worry about trampling the bluebells. We have a nature loving, sensitive little boy, but also a curious one. He wandered into them a few times at the beginning so I grabbed a couple of shots like a ninja before reminding him not to walk on them. He also picked two when I wasn’t looking. We respected our surroundings, like we always do in the countryside :)

Also, note the killer steady hand I managed to keep on the 3rd picture. That was shot at 1.8 aperture on a nifty 50mm 1.8. The field of focus was teeny.

Bluebells: Part 1

We visited some new woods today. We found a meadow of bluebells in a beautiful clearing. I have never seen such a thing, there was lot’s of wild heather as well, so I will be returning throughout the seasons to that wonderful spot :)
