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...

About Me

This is me!
My name is Helen and I am a Photographer and an Artist.
My daughter took this picture, I think its a shining example of why I am firmly
behind the lens!
I do not take a good picture but I do take a good photograph, after an awful lot of practice.

My father bought me one of the cameras above for my 21st Birthday and the other one was his. I no longer remember which is which and thats just the way it should be.
Dabbling over the years I never really got the bug despite my Fathers best encouragement until, ironically, 21 years later I was bought another camera as a present, an SLR.
After taking some courses and spending hours roaming hill and dale, I am now officially a photography nut (and a bore some would say!)  
I love to read other peoples blogs and am always learning and being inspired by others photographs, so please comment and leave links to your blogs as I'd love to meet you :o) 

I sell my photographic images in a Gallery and run Photography Evenings and Photo Field Trips
for like-minded photography junkies - its great fun!
I'm in the process of converting the photography evening schedules into an e-course, which I will post here.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog
Helen xx
