A Day Out at NT Erddig House

We spent the Saturday sandwiched between Good Friday and Easter Sunday at a local National Trust house. Ergddig House is just outside of Wrexham and provides glimpses into what life would have been like during the first and second world wars. If you are in the region then it is definitely worth a visit.  http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/erddig/

A Lazy Sunday – Time-lapse

The weather in the UK has been unseasonably warm for the time of year so we have spent a lot of time outside in the garden. On Sunday I thought it would be good to set the camera up and record some of the afternoon as a time-lapse. As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, time-lapse photography is something I would like to do more of…the only stumbling block being that it takes time and time is something I am in short supply of!

Anyway, I think considering I am still in the experimental stage it turned out OK – even the manual panning by me at the end of the segments!!

Flower Power

20120104-210626.jpg

I thought for a change I would post a picture of a person rather than a city or landscape. When Mia was about 12 months old she loved nothing more than walking around the garden and pulling all the flower heads off. Now this wouldn’t be so bad if it was the autumn and the flowers needed dead heading, but as it was just the start of summer this meant we spent a lot of time chasing after here frantically trying to stop her from destroying the whole garden! The flip side was that during sunny days it made for some great photo opportunities as Mia sat and “played” with the flowers!
