Wednesday Lensday: Medieval Meanderings

Wednesday Lensday: Medieval Meanderings

A couple of weekends ago, we decided to visit the Royal Armouries in Leeds. Not only is it a fabulous, free museum packed full of weaponry and armour dating back from Anglo-Saxon times to modern day, but it is situated down by the river, which allows for some nice photography.

Wednesday Lensday: New Year, New (Ca)ME(ra)

Wednesday Lensday: New Year, New (Ca)ME(ra)

I took my new little Sony CyberShot out for a walk along the beach, just after Christmas, so that I could get a first feel for it.

Have to say, I do enjoy having an actual zooming lens back despite so far only really using it on auto settings. The camera has plenty of functions I can play around with over the next few weeks though – just have to not fall back into lazy ways!

Wednesday Lensday: Looking back at 2016 snaps!

Wednesday Lensday: Looking back at 2016 snaps!

It is Wednesday, right? I get ever so confused when I’m not at work and it’s this in-between holiday period!

As was lucky enough to get a new camera for Christmas (a Sony CyberShot),  I thought I’d look back over some of my favourite photos I’ve taken in the last year with my iPhone… although I’m sure they won’t be the last ones I’ll take with it, it’s so flippin’ convenient!

I’ve wanted a new ‘point and shoot’ device for a while (much to Sam’s dismay) because I’ve just never really got on with the DSLR, admittedly being too lazy to master the controls and finding it too cumbersome for my little fingers. Yet, as much as I love using my iPhone (and I’m happy with the results), there are just some things you can’t do with it, so hoping my new present will bridge the gap.

Many of these snaps you’ll have seen, although some were Instagram only entries. All were taken this year and each one I hope you enjoy looking at again. They’ve certainly helped to remind me that there have been some good parts to a pretty awful year for most. Keep smiling and stay positive everyone. 🙂

A Journey Through Fire and Ice: Part 4

A Journey Through Fire and Ice: Part 4

Rooooooxanne! You don’t have to put on the red light…

Nope, hold on. That’s not the Police song I had in mind for this blog post.

You see, on our last day in Iceland you’d be forgiven for thinking we were actually ‘Walking on the Moon‘!

Growing up in Yorkshire, I have been spoilt with scenery and much of Iceland’s landscape could be likened to parts of the Yorkshire Moors and Scottish Highlands. However, the Reykjanes Peninsula Geopark is completely different, and in my opinion, severely under-advertised.

Journey Through Fire and Ice: Part 3

The third installment of our trip to Iceland has lights, works of art and…my hairy Hobbit feet.

Wait…come back! They’re not that hairy, honest…and you don’t see a close up. 😉
