I do love a good auction, there is the casual looking around at the auction preview, rummaging for something special, then the thrill of the auction itself.
Our new web site www.alittlebitofnice.com is now up and running, it has taken far longer than we expected which accounts for some of the lack of blogs over the last few months.
For my husbands birthday this year I booked him on a photography course at the spectacular West Dean College near Chichester West Sussex.
Last week we had a little trip away to one of our favourite places to stay, Odle Farm in Devon.
If your passion is flowers, gardening, or photography, Hidcote Manor Garden is a stunning place to visit, and at this time of year the gardens seem to be at their best.
My old camera has arrived at a very lovely place called Odle Farm near Honiton in Devon Erin who is 12 was taken along by her Mum on a "Photography on 2 wheels" course, (book both for a nice relaxing week away). You know how it goes, you take your children along with you to keep you company on something you fancy having a go at, and they end up being far better at the task in hand than you! But that is how it's supposed to go right? My sons definitely know and have done far more than I probably ever will, so I've done my job as a Mum.
Yesterday I told you that Mr B would be going on a Michael Palmer Twilight photography evening, it was by all accounts a fun evening where you learnt quite a lot of new things.Here are a few of the photographs that were taken last night, some just looking around Winchester seeing what you liked the look of, others learning to take pictures in the dark and play with light. Plenty of new tricks and ideas to come home with and improve on in future picture taking.
I am drawn to old and faded it would seem in most things, including flowers!
In my last blog I was telling you to look up, now I'm telling you to look back, especially at the back of flowers and leaves, they can be just as spectacular as the front, sometimes even more so.
