A daily rambling from Colin and Mari !
Welcome to our blog.
well everyone else seems to be doing them so why not and it is an interaction we can have with anyone willing to read it.
We started this a few weeks ago and from small acorns to big trees grow , or so the saying goes. We seem to be no exception !
Already in the archives are over 1,000 images all in the main taken locally. They also include some incredible client shots and for that we are truly grateful.
In the immediate pipeline is another wedding and three portrait shoots. With Christmas just around that damned corner we are also being asked for images for cards, and that is a growing trend amongst scrapbookers ....
The trials of everyday image taking and editing are for us not a chore, they are to be enjoyed and in the many days when we are out and about we get some fresh air, we see things we would miss in the car and we enjoy meeting new folks.
This past weekend Sunday the 4th October we had fun in three locations. St Margarets Bay between Deal and Dover and affording beautiful views across the busy English Channel, this naturally provided us with quite a few images. Next down to Dover and a stroll onto the harbour pier. Loads of fisherman and a cafe closed at nine am ..... their loss we were hungry and ready for the tea and coffee. We saw some fine sights from here and again some images caught and shared via this website.
Finally on to Samphire Hoe a man made structure from the chalk marl dug out to create the Channel Tunnel. A varied area of barren grasses, 30 odd sheep and thee large ponds, fronted by an immense concrete "prom". We were fortunate that the cafe was open and snacks and tea later we strolled through this fantastic sight. Prior to that we met two nice folks with their Malamute bitch Maya, what a beautiful dog and such a credit to her owners. An image of her is in the animal section , judge for yourself !
To cap off a wonderful morning, we spied a buzzard fighting in mid air with a large crow. We managed a couple of shots but alas not to the standard we want to put here on the website, we will return !
Till next time and more rambling
