'Memories in pattern and colour'

Tag Archives: photography

It was a little while ago now, but me and my little friend Mr Bingley went for a little explore of a field just outside my village.  It is a regular haunt of ours, as it’s  a great place to let Bingley poddle about and have a little explore, not to mention eat masses of rabbit poo! (Yes what a filthy habit!)

It was literally the first sunny day we had seen for weeks, and honestly a walk in the muddy redundant potato field was bliss! So much so that I managed to lose poor Mr Bingley’s lead which meant a dilemma regarding getting the little boy back home! Thankfully my camera strap came in handy as a makeshift lead 😀

Once we were back home safely we then set about to giving Bingley his morning shower and upon finishing, Bingley hurt himself getting out the bath. It turns out after a visit to the vet, he has hurt his back and needed some time (and medicine) to recover! Hence the last picture which he was all tucked up and sleeping lots until has back was a little better!

Thankfully I am happy to say he is now back to his normal happy self, and is feeling much better 🙂





Dear fellow bloggers, just a quick note to let you know I am now on Facebook as well as on my little blog! For all things vintage, colourful and just generally a little bit of everything that makes me happy you can find me at:

I cant wait to use this vintage 1960's bag this autumn!

My Partner bought me this bag last year for my birthday when we visited Rye, East sussex, England. There are a great many thrift stores there, full of antique and vintage goodies, a great place to visit if you ever head that way! This bag had been put away over summer…but with autumn creeping closer i have got it out and i cant wait to use it again! I dont own many bags, but this one of my best ones.  It dates from the 1960’s and i just adore it!

Today in the post 3 filters came for my  bridge camera, pretty exciting considering I have wanted some for so long! I finally got around to getting some as I wanted a few for taking pictures at my sisters coming wedding (don’t worry we are also getting profs in!). I got a soft focus one, and 4 point star and a warming filter. So far my pictures have been pretty shoddy with them, especially the soft focus one as I am not sure I really like the blurred effect, but I have not been taking portraits which I know would be the most appropriate use…maybe it will be more handy on the wedding day itself, but the loss of detail does concern me.  The other two seem quite nice. I am surprised how subtle the effects are and to be honest I hoped maybe the difference in the picture quality would be more startling, but this may just take some getting used to. Anyways my main reason for posting about this is I would love any help for getting the most out of these filters. Any tips?
