We went off en famille this morning on a Magical Mystery Tour ... we discovered the Grand Union Canal and Brentford Lock (which is where the canal meets the Thames), which is just the other side of the M4 from us and next door to GlaxoSmithKline's global HQ. It was a shame that the weather … Continue reading A Hidden Gem
If I can't blow my own trumpet on my own blog then where can I?? Cheryl Johnson from Scrapbook Inspirations magazine contacted me today about one of my SLYMI LOs and asked if I will submit it for the magazine's Readers' Gallery!! I am completely speechless!!
Here it is. An ordinary day turned out to be fairly interesting!
Here's a sneak peek at some of today's images. What I thought would be an ordinary day, photography wise, turned out to be fairly interesting because the Council's tree surgeons have begun pollarding the trees on our road and the shopping centre was playing host to a European Market.
Tomorrow is the penultimate SYD, am amazed at how quickly a year has passed and that I've kept up with it. I hope the weather is nice so that DS and I can get out and about and take some decent photos.

I've purchased two tickets so all DH and Mum have to do is decide which one of them is coming with me! I've always had a soft spot for the Band of … Continue reading Beating Retreat
The challenge for this week was to cup up a photo! Shimelle said: Welcome to week eight and we have a special guest! Our challenge this week is set by lovely sponsors A Trip Down Memory Lane, and they challenge you to...CUT A PHOTO! Think I'm talking crazy-talk? I promise this is what they challenge … Continue reading SLYMI: Week 8
I think I mentioned something last month about starting a photography project: 50 London Landmarks in a Year; I'm sure I read something similar on Shimelle's Blog, which is probably where I got the idea from! Anyway, walking past Oxfam Bookshop yesterday I spotted this beauty in the window. DS and I popped in and … Continue reading Photographing London
