 for Erin in black & white


  1. Wow saz, I certainly dont think you need to apologise for the quality, they are beautiful pictures...

    A very happy 2011 to you xx

  2. Please, shove that last one tightly in black and white. Whoa. The lines and geometry!

    Walking. walking. walking~

    It is what we have.

    Yesterday we had mud. Today snow. Tomorrow?


  3. You took those with your phone? I wish I could do as well with my SLR.

  4. Oh, that is peaceful somehow, Saz. It is so beautiful. God. You know, just to spend a moment there and then to walk on.

    Thank you.


  5. Oh gee, these are exquisite! I love the moodiness of the photos and the colours and textures. I went out yesterday and took some shots of my area, too. Just had to get out and away from everyone. Hope you had a nice New Year's. :D

  6. These are stunning, darling. Heaven knows what you could produce if you had a super-duper gee whiz camera, nothing better I's all in the eye.

  7. These are beautiful - hauntingly so. They make me wish I lived closer by and could take a walk there myself. What a beautiful place to meditate on life.

  8. I truly love the shot from under the bridge. It reminds me of some of the sights from my childhood growing up near the Neponset River, and sometimes going under a bridge just to see what might be down there!

  9. Oooooh! Lovely.
    I particularly love the photos looking through the arch.

  10. These are beautiful, Saz. I love the colours in the first one and the perspective from the last.

  11. All I can say is "Wow!" Those are truly impressive, especially coming from a cell phone! Absolutely beautiful!

  12. Sara
    I love the way you saw these images
    the camera was just the echo

  13. Oh my, your photos are so beautiful, so eerie and amazing,especially from an NZ summer, in a city that doesn't get snow,

  14. Your phone takes great photos -- helped along greatly by your eye for something beautiful.

    Happy New Year!

  15. Those pictures are beautiful.

  16. I love every one of these, but especially the one shot under the bridge. I personally like the natural color, but I suppose the true artists will go for the black and white. All lovely, though. Congratulations on POTW.

  17. Saz, your photos were great! Well done for getting Hilary's POTW! - Dave

  18. Fabulous photos!! You captured the atmosphere of the space beautifully. Congrats on your POTW

  19. These are absolutely beautiful. Why am I hauling around a camera when shots like this can come from a cell phone!? Congratulations on POTW.

  20. Congrats on your POTW and I agree with what everyone else says!!

  21. Congrats on POTW! Wonderful photos from a phone! Love the first and the last especially. Happy New Year!

  22. Gorgeous! And congrats on being the POTW!

  23. Gorgeous! And congrats on being the POTW!

  24. Very nice photos, I have never shot with a phone, but many get a good image.

  25. This is terrific my darling girl. spot, well deserved, these pictures are wonderful. Don't have a favourite; loved them all.

  26. Wow, these are from your phone? Beautiful! Congrats on the POTW!

  27. wonderful potw, it's amazing what our new phones can do, but it's always who is behind the lens that makes the biggest difference, great shots ~ nice to meet you :)

  28. Fantastic photos - you have the eye and then some

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…
