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

An autumn walk that paid well for Helen

“Daddy, I don’t want to go for a walk,” said Izzy. We’d spent most of the day inside either doing domestic chores or at Helen’s gymnastics class. being a beautiful autumn day, I wanted the kids and I to get out and enjoy some fresh air, hence why I insisted we go for a walk. As you can tell from Izzy’s response, she wasn’t so keen on the idea.

Here’s looking at you kid

Having learned that the secret to getting a good photograph can involve being somewhere at the right time, I paid a visit to the London Borough of Croydon just before sunrise. I had heard about an urban art festival called Rise and thought some of the art that was on display on the streets might look good in the early morning sunlight.

Cobweb and mist

I don’t know about other mums and dads, but I am still putting the house together after six weeks of domestic neglect. While I’m almost on top of things, it has been a busy week and I’ve had little time to venture out with my camera. I took it upon myself to go out shortly after sunrise one morning as it was the only free time available to me. Inspired by something I had seen on Instagram, I had a vague plan to photograph a cobweb covered in dew.

A break in the clouds

Some days ago, I noticed some dramatic cloud formations in the sky. I grabbed my camera, took myself to the top of the house and started taking pictures out of a Velux window. This is one of about 20 images I took and in its physical form, the clouds and this break in the clouds looked incredibly ominous.

A dramatic cloud formation that precipitated some incredibly heavy rain. I wasn’t convinced this picture was good enough to appear on my blog but Mrs Adams thought otherwise.

A visit to Techniquest in Cardiff

As the school summer holidays entered their final couple of weeks, I asked the kids if there was anything they particularly wanted to do. The response took me by surprise: “We want to visit Wales.” Earlier this week I took it upon myself to fulfill this slightly surprising wish. Before heading on to Porthcawl for a night, we spent a morning in Cardiff where I took these pictures at Techniquest on Cardiff Bay.
