Happy Birthday

My youngest is two years old today, which gave me an excuse to trawl through my archive. I’ve taken a lot of pictures of him over the last two years, but I’ve not quite captured his unique character. He was born about the time I was fed up with photography. My creativity had stagnated and […]

The Swan

Wharfe Meadows Park in Otley runs along the edge of the River Wharfe. Apart from the usual local council style gardening that seems to be unique to the UK, there is a children’s play area, skate park and of course, the river bank. Ducks, gulls and pigeons swim and fly up and down alongside the […]

I was hoping for some animal tracks, and sure enough, one of the neighborhood cats didn’t disappoint. Thankfully the cars weren’t snowed in. unlike this one…
