An alternative view of Berlin

We have just got back from a family holiday to Berlin. Although I have visited this lovely city before, it was the first time our kids had been and it was a fantastic experience seeing this city through their eyes.

Of course I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to capture some photographs of Berlin while I was there. So having captured the landmark snaps for the family album, I decided to look out for some more arty scenes.

I tried to get some images from a different perspective, and quite like what I managed to capture. So here is my alternative tour of Berlin……

I am continuing to build on the range of products available with my photographs featured on them. This week I thought I would highlight the new floral leggings collection. Using the single flowers that have featured on some of my other clothing ranges, I have created repetitive  patterns which i think works really well on leggings.

Views around Worthing, West Sussex

In a break from my recent floral posts, I thought I would share some of my photographs of my hometown of Worthing on the South coast of England.

Being the town I grew up in, I often overlooked this lovely seaside resort as a source of photography. I am almost over familiar with  it! Anyway having moved out of Worthing many years ago now, I can look at it more objectively, and really love popping over there for days out. It has had a lot of money invested in it in recent years, meaning it has lost that “run down, out of season resort” look it once had.

Bee is featured as “September” in RSPB Calendar

Earlier this year I was very excited to find out that one of my images had been selected to feature in the 2018 RSPB “Inspiring Nature” calendar. The image chosen was my bee climbing up the stamen of a yellow flower.

This week I received my copy of the calendar, which was really exciting, finally seeing my image in print! I am so proud to have my image featured with so many other amazing photographs.

Each year this charity brings out new products to sell in shops all around the country to raise money.

The charity has a wide remit but ultimately it comes down to protecting the natural environment and its inhabitants. With this in mind they ran a competition to look for images under the theme of “love nature”. They were looking for all aspects of nature and wildlife to feature in their new calendar.  My entry was of a bee holding onto a stamen on a flower.

The RSPB is a UK charity who raise money to create and preserve environments where  nature can thrive. I am over the moon that one of my images will be assisting with fund raising for this worthy cause.

Copies of the calendar can be purchased from shops around the country or online from the RSPB website.

Thank you to all the hard working teachers (you know who you are!)

As the school year comes to an end here in the UK it is a time of reflection, excitement and anticipation. It has been an amazing year for my kids, growing in confidence and discovering who they are and what makes them unique. This journey has been made easier and more fun due to their amazing teachers and teaching assistants.

The big one, in particular has had a fantastic year, so I decided to create a home made thank you card for her teacher. He has used Lego throughout the year as a teaching method and a form of reward (it’s amazing how much the kids will behave to get the opportunity to build the latest Lego model!)

The other theme running through this academic year was the fidget spinner – very much a love/hate object. “The kids love ’em the teachers hate ’em!”

With these two things in mind I created a personal thank you card to sum up the year, I was quite pleased with the result!

So, to all those starting their summer holiday – enjoy your well earned break and thank you for recognising and celebrating our kids, for being the brilliant individuals that they are.
