Things beginning with B

Blossom, butterflies and bunnies.

Bunny made the front page of etsy today and sold, I didn't even know until a fellow Twitterer told me. It made my Sunday!

Thank you Balanced for featuring me in your treasury.

What do you Think of?

The thought of Summer brings images of golden fields, late sunsets and ice cream.


I was talking about plans for the summer with a friend today, we were dreaming of bike rides along the seafront, camping, picnics on the beach and jumping on the trampoline.

Bring it on!

Charming Brighton

A few charming sights I noticed on a walk with Milo and my camera.
Ordinary things that are often ignored as we rush by.

Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside

This sunny morning was spent taking photographs on Brighton seafront.
It was so beautiful, I felt at home.

Just before I gave birth to my son, I desperately wanted to move back to Devon.
My childhood was so much fun; cycling along country lanes, running through fields....bliss! I want the same for my children.

Since Milo was born I have fallen back in love with Brighton. It is vibrant, friendly, photogenic and I can walk everywhere. Oh, and we live by the sea! How cool is that?


I am not quite ready for the quiet life just yet.

A Spring in my Step

I just love this time of year as we climb out of winter.
There is a promise of sunshine all week so I am gearing up for a mammoth photography session around Brighton.

I find myself drawn to urban fragments most of the time; the mundane and ugly or traditional seaside icons. You can see examples on flickr where I upload daily.

For now the buds are opening and trees are blooming, Ttv and nature make a fantastic pair. Here are the results of my visit to the park this morning.


Prints available to buy shortly.

Look up

Window I

We miss so much by not looking up.

Today I walked around Brighton with the intention of finding new things above eye level.
I have never noticed these windows before, I want to look in.

Sitting Pretty

I found four little deer.
They are sitting pretty in a row.

Flowers begin to bloom.
Dreams of hot summer days are near.

Happy Anniversary

Last night my partner and I celebrated six years together at The Chilli Pickle in Brighton.
The food was fantastic!
Each course served was a sumptuous treat, I can't even pick a favourite!

Happy anniversary, my love.
