Sunday Stills: The Letter ‘T’

Here in London, the Underground system is known affectionately as the Tube, so for my Sunday Stills image this week, T is for Tube… 🙂Mile-End-Tube-Station

Sunday Stills: Going Buggy

I’m not really much of a macro photographer, or an insect fan for that matter, but these lovely close-up images were taken by my husband with the macro setting on a little point-and-shoot. Not at all sure what’s going on with the little red bugs… 🙂


Ness Islands, Inverness

As with many towns and cities here in the UK, the River Ness flows right through the middle of the City of Inverness, the Capital of the Highlands in North-East Scotland.

A group of small natural islands within the main body of the river linked by footbridges together create a lovely winding woodland walk across from one side of the town to the other enjoyed by kids and adults alike, and I thought I’d share some of the views here… 🙂ness-islands-1 ness-islands-2 ness-islands-3 ness-islands-4 ness-islands-5 ness-islands-6



One of my favourite Cajun dishes is Jambalaya – a satisfying spicy mix of rice and several different meats and veg – and personally I find the rich smoky flavour of this large potful cooked by my husband’s cousin on a wood fire in the back yard pretty damned hard to beat 🙂


Stirring the pot…

Everyday London Life: Local Street Scenes

The London I live in can sometimes look like a well-heeled, prosperous city rich with colour, bright and shining, vibrant with promise. But at other times it appears to be undeniably grey and grimy, with a kind of sad shabbiness borne of generations of poverty and neglect.

I’m experimenting in trying to capture creatively that slightly darker, starker mood of some of the not-so-pretty everyday street scenes, as shown in these few images, all taken locally in Leytonstone, East London… 🙂
