Norwich shopping trip - The Pixel chef

A trip to the dark side!

I don’t get to go shopping in Norwich as much as I’d like to and usually when I usually do it involves trailing round with one or both of the kids! As a treat I normally put in my trusty old Canon 300d which has become my handbag camera but on this trip I decided…

Birthday portrait The Pixel chef

Birthday photo shoot

These are a few shots taken of my son Tom just before his 17th birthday. Every so ofter I get the call to do a shoot so that he can up date his Facebook profile. We never go far – just into the back garden!

A walk around Swaffham

Foggy Halloween sunrise

It was one of those beautiful ethereal mornings today – with the dew hanging off cobwebs and the sun gradually burning through the heavy fog.  Every where I looked there were photos! As usual on my morning walk all of the photos below were taken on my mobile phone.  


That was September

Mists and mellow fruitfulness and all that jazz. Summer stayed for the whole of September with record temperatures and lots of blue skies. As I type October has arrived grey and wet and my sandled feet are cold…
