Instagram. We’ve all been there. Some of you are still there. Some of you are excitedly exploring Instagram’s addictive chase for likes. I have been on instagram for a few years now and I too seriously chased those likes for most of that time. I learnt to work the algorithms (when that was a thingContinue reading “The Disingenuous Nature of Instagram”
Despite buying my house in Scotland in March right before lockdown, I hadn’t been able to visit it and move my worldly possessions in until July of this year. This involved a flight from Italy (once flights were back up and running), driving from London to stay with my family in Derbyshire and rest, thenContinue reading “Scotland – Summer 2020”

I took my camera because… I take it everywhere, pretty much. The light wasn’t great as the mists were heavy and fairly low, and the clouds wereContinue reading “The Roaches”
For now, while the rain pours in the UK, I will continue to re-visit old wildlife images and re-edit to produce something different to the original edits. Birds seem to be especially good for this task!
Last time I hiked up Snowdon (I say hiked, we took the Miner’s Track, which is fairly easy-going for the most part) the mountain decided to mess with me. It was a lovely sunny day when we set off, and yet in the space of three hours it rained, hailed, and eventually snowed on me.Continue reading “Snowdon: September 2019”
