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...

Merry Christmas to all

Some Creative Lights:Exploring with a Camera

The pain of a relationship break up is indescribable and what timing to have it happen over Christmas.
Part of me wants to turn the clock back and have it never have happened and part of me wants to fast forward time to a place where it no longer hurts so much and all the uncertainty is over.

But I am so aware that much worse things are happening in the world and we all have so many things to still be grateful for. In that spirit I wish you all A very Merry Christmas and heres hoping for a happy and artistic New Year

for everyone!


  1. Merry Christmas Helen. Sorry to hear about your break up, so hard this time of year. You have captured some beautiful images of lights. I hope your photography helps you through!

  2. Hi Helen, Your photography has helped you in the past, and I'm sure it will give you something else to focus on as time passes. I wish I could speed up time for you... Your lights are lovely!

  3. thank you both, your thoughts mean so much, thank you for taking the time to comment. Photography,along with my family,is my rock and I am looking forwards to the photography that 2012 will bring!

  4. Sorry to hear about your break-up. Tough to have that spoil the holidays.
    I like how you told about it though with pictures of "light" to break it up, hmm. Good luck and there will be brighter days ahead.

  5. thank you laurie, it is getting so much easier now, a new house to look forward to decorating and a new job starting today so all going in the right direction! I hope 2012 is good to you too.
