Welcome to my first Blog. This is more of a test, but hopefully this will evolve into an often used, well-read part of the Blogosphere, but everyone has to start somewhere hey!
I think the main aim to this Blog is to upload a few pics of a shoot. There maybe times when I don't necessary want to upload pictures into my portfolio galleries, and even though I upload them onto Flikr it is nice to share them on this site and talk about it. I have some really interesting shoots planned this year and a Blog will be a good way to talk about how they went and get others talking about it too.
This Sunday it was a beautiful spring morning. There was not a wisp of cloud in the sky and it was the first day of the year I needed sunglasses. I went to visit a place which is only ten minutes down the road from me; Forde Abbey in Dorset, in the Marshwood Vale. It is a beautiful historical house, which is still lived in by the Roper family. It is a popular house to visit in the summer months for the gardens and the interiors state rooms, as well as being a stunning venue for weddings. As it was winter we could not visit the house, but instead the attraction was the thousands of white teardrop snowdrops and vibrant lilac crocus. I am no flower lover, but it was a great site wondering around the estate with the multi-coloured carpet of flowers at our feet, with an elegant and imposing manor house in the background. The sky was a glorious blue, and it afforded me to take some nice pictures;
So not a bad few pictures, for a little Sunday morning stroll. It just shows that it is great to explore what is on your doorstep, but also take pictures of your surrounding area and the place you live, as so often we take for granted where we live.
