What a great day, watching so many take part in this event. Every one running for different reasons, but all with a common goal - just to get to the end.  Me - I just stretched myself, capturing the many moments around the course.

I spotted the way this bush framed this bench in a Southampton Park and just wished someone would come and sit there. I waited a while, but no one came so  continued on my way up the path. I was passed by this gentleman who did indeed go to the bench. I calmly turned round, went back to my original position and framed the shot. My wishes were answered.

A wonderful evening spent documenting a 25th Wedding anniversary. This little lovely couldn't wait for the adults to decide it was dance time, so took to the floor by herself.

Looking closely at an artists work can be quite enlightening. Thanks again Pedro for the opportunity.

A new challenge - how to capture movement on a cold wet wednesday evening as a load of mad athletes run round Southampton Common trying to improve their personal best. I think I may have had more fun then they did!

I was asked to document the private viewing of a local artist. It was lovely to watch the people enjoying the artwork, mingling with one another and discussing it all with the artist.

The task was set - My yr7s were to show their understanding of the digestive system in any form - with the best being displayed in my classroom. 
The poem was a joint effort by two of my students.
I then worked with one of them to produce the photo that would be the background. Hopefully this would be a very memorable experience for them both.

I wouldn't say photography is always a walk in the park, but a walk in the park is often linked to photography!
