Hello and thank you for calling in...

My name is Helen and I am a Photographer living in England. I started this Blog on the day that my Grandma died, three months after my Father died and several weeks before a third funeral. Initially it was a very personal way to stay connected to the people I'd lost and it helped, it really did. But writing and taking pictures everyday has opened back up a creative side that I had lost during the everyday. A big thank you to my followers, to those who take the time to comment and to new visitors, I hope we will become Blog friends too...

Shades of Autumn Photography Challenge

Lots of Brown images today to link in with the Shades of Autumn Photography Challenge's colour of the week, but the images tell a story of how I'm feeling right now.

I just had a Birthday and you know that feeling - 'times a ticking' ......

Feels a very long time since my heels were a'clickin

I'd like to pack a case....

and make an escape......

but alas its just wishing.

So I'll stay home and see

all the joys England gives to me

when harvests are done

and winter does come

but oh how I'd love

to break bread with my love in some sunnier climes........


  1. I love your photographs! They have so much feeling and beauty. Barefoot Mama

  2. I absolutely love the 10th shot! What is it? Some kind of pine cone?
    Thanks for joining us in the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge. I hope you'll be back again on Friday for our new theme, white. Have a great day!

  3. thank you barefoot mama,that really means a lot :o)

    Kristi it was the strangest thing! about a foot in length and just lying by the path when my photography group and I went to a local beauty spot. At first we though someone had made it by stringing pine cones together but it was actually one long pine cone.Someone must have found and then abandoned it as they got back to the car park. I'd love to know what tree it comes from, we didn't see any others hanging in the park!
