Some of my better photographs, often shared via the #MySundayPhoto linky.

Sussex and Kent landscape by drone

With the demise of the #MySundayPhoto linky, I said I would publish more photographic tutorials on the blog. My children, Helen and Izzy, only returned to school on Thursday so I have had no time to produce any tutorials, but I have undertaken a couple of short drone flights.

For me, as a blogger, today is a big day. Something of a sad day to be honest, but also a cause for celebration.

Framing a subject. A simple photography trick when all else goes wrong!

This photograph was taken with the help of my youngest daughter, Izzy. She very kindly agreed to hold up this old picture frame so I could take a shot of a colourful market as we looked down at it from a bridge overhead.
