HELLO & WELCOME
 
I am Clare and this is my Photo Site. I got interested in photography when I purchased my first 'real' camera in 2010. I created this website to showcase my photographs for family and friends and maybe even the odd passing visitor. I make updates regularly so check back for the latest additions, and you are very welcome to leave a comment in my Guestbook.

The Shard

February 18, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
Friday 16 February 2017 Eventful day today. We took afternoon tea at The Shard. I wore a nice dress and proper make-up for the first time since Rowan was born. By the time we got to The Shard my dress had been sicked on once and weed on once. They say these things happen in threes, so I was prepared for the next one. And sure enough, we had a down...

Behind The Lens: Archiving a Year

September 27, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
As each year ends, it is time to archive all of the images and edits made in that year. For me, this involves moving all of that work out of my 'working' LR catalog, and into my archive drive. I archive each year as its own LR catalog. This keeps my working drive at a reasonable size but still allows me easy access to my archive files if I need the...

Victoria

August 06, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
In May 2017, I was lucky enough to be able to travel to Victoria, Canada for work. I spent an enjoyable week by the sea with my colleagues from PRA Health Sciences, and was able to see quite a bit of the city as well. My trip started and finished with a fabulous breakfast at the Jam Cafe. It is certainly somewhere I'd like to go back to some day. T...

California

It might be 8 months late, but I have finally posted photos from our trip to California in September 2015. It has been a battle to find enough time recently to process my photos. But sitting down to review my California photos certainly brought back lots of happy memories! The Travel section now contains photos from San Francisco, Big Sur Coast, Lo...

Luscious Lavender

September 03, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
I got together with a bunch of photography friends and had a day trip to the lavender farm at Hitchin, Bedfordshire. I have wanted to shoot a lavender farm for a while now, and I suggested this trip to coincide with the flowering season. We were in luck, as the blooms were beautiful, and highly fragrant. As well as a memory card full of photos, I c...

National Trust Collection: More from Hughenden

July 02, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
We had another trip to Hughenden Manor, in Berkshire, recently, to meet up with friends from Milton Keynes. It was a beautiful sunny day. After a very fresh and tasty lunch in the kitchen garden cafe, we took a stroll around the grounds, with cameras in arms, to enjoy the sunshine and take a few pictures. I think the scarecrows and flowerpot men in...
