Solo

It didn't take Em long before she decided she wanted to go on the rides solo.

Even on the soft-play bus, where the larger children (the boys espcially) were making it anything but soft-play, she just got stuck in!

Today's shot, by comparison with yesterday's, was shot with a much faster shutter speed to freeze the descent, allowing me to capture priceless expressions from my mum and mini. :)

We all had a lot of fun – we had to drag Em off each of the rides. Worryingly fearless!

We had a wonderful time at Ferry Meadows in Peterborough today.

It seems for the last few weeks we have had an abundance of festivals, carnivals, rides, trips and shows to go to; something to do with the Summer holidays, I imagine?! :)

I thought I'd catch a few shots of Emily enjoying herself. Rather than go for the more usual fast shutter speed and freeze the action, I thought I'd try a spot of panning at low speeds today.

It is a little tricky to get the sharp points in the photo while allowing everything else to blur but I think this shot works well enough.

Despite the bad weather, many turned out for the Mountsorrel Revival today.

Many people turned up late – yours truly among them – to wait out the torrential weather, imported from our dear cousins across the big pond. We did still, however, manage a lovely afternoon of boating, drinking, eating and wandering around all the attractions, finished off with a canon salute at the end of the day!

Today's shot is of Emily and mum, paddling back up the river. They had a lot of fun!

We are all looking forward to next year's event where, hopefully, the weather will be a little kinder.

It's the strangest thing!

I take a photo of Emily, and sometimes I get flashes of instances of her, looking younger or older. Sometimes the shots look like her, others completely unlike how I see her. But one thing seems to be happening, she is growing at an alarming rate! I know it's cliché, but I cannot really tell you where the last two years have gone.

Then I look through all my photos and video, and I get a small reminder… :)

It has been a while since I last posted.

Much of the usual happening here. I'm busy with work, birthdays, family stuff, seeing friends, DIY, the later of which probably takes me way longer than it should. Oh well! We all have strengths and weaknesses.

I also have a lot of people after my help with design and related work at the moment, which is nice.

While I have taken new shots, tonights is an old once from our cruise last year. I always meant to post it but never got around to it before now.
