    Pet forever after…..

    Thoughts

    man1After the tragic loss of 60 stray dogs at Manchester Dogs Home the other day… nobody can be as appalled as I am at the age of the culprit. 15 years old… apparently.

    And the little scrot needs to be brought to justice and pay the ultimate price for what he did. There are no excuses for his behaviour and there needs to be a harsh punishment for what he did… but that is up to the courts to decide…

  • As the summer draws to a close and the flowers are fading and dying in our gardens and the autumn tones begin to colour our landscapes, it won’t be long before winter descends upon us. So I thought I would look back on one of the places we visited this summer and that was Mount Ephraim near Faversham in Kent, and process three pictures of the many flowers that take pride of place in their gardens.

    During our visit to the Tall Ships Regatta at North Greenwich last weekend, hubby took this photo of masts of the tall ships.  The weather was dull and very murky… even though it was warm, as you looked across the Thames towards Canary Wharf and down the Thames towards Greenwich, there was a murky haze which did spoilt the photos we took somewhat.  However, on this picture I…

    Within the grounds of Mottisfont at Romsey, Hampshire, is the walled garden.  After walking along the River Test that runs through the grounds, that is owned and maintained by the National Trust, I just couldn’t walk another inch… so I sent hubby off to see the walled gardens.

    The above picture was taken within the walled gardens and I just love the varieties of lilac and…

    We were undecided last weekend where to go… all night Friday we were thinking of this place or that place and come Saturday we still hadn’t made our mind up. Saturday came and hubby had to work in the morning… so our trip Saturday afternoon would’ve had to been somewhere close.

    Anyway there I was still trying to think of somewhere close to go, when hubby came home from work and said that the…

    The above photograph was taken back in July 2014, when we visited the New Forest.  We have been to the new forest many times before, but have never stumbled across a place called Hatchet pond and can truly say it is a beautiful place to watch the ponies and the wildlife… I could have easily sat there all day, soaking up the sun’s rays…

    The above picture was taken at Belmont House and Gardens… I just love how those Delphiniums stand tall amongst the evergreen shrubs of the flowerbed.

  • Watermarking….

    Watermarking….

    Now what a tough question this is… do you watermark your photos or not?  I have always put a watermark either in the bottom left or right hand side of the photo… and I have tried to keep the watermark unobtrusive.

    Nobody wants to get up one morning, google something and find that their photos have been stolen by some unscrupulous person who is now passing your work off as their own.

    No matter…
