Dabiiiithhh & Got it licked. Seb: I’m always surprised when I bump into an old friend. First it’s that pleasant ‘Oooh! HELLO!’, but it’s swiftly followed by a rather nice, warm sensation inside as I realise, hang on, I actually have a friend! It happens almost every time I leave the house actually. All these friends… just… waiting! Biding their times in the shadows, waiting to be… FRIENDLY! This photo was taken at a wedding. It was very hot and…

Dolphins & Passport control Seb: I’m only just back from Norway. I’ve been up since 4:30am and, try as I might, I didn’t manage to get any sleep the night before. Throw in the party the night before that, and I guess I’ve been up for almost three days… It’s views like this that make all the pain and suffering and drinking and debauchering tolerable though. I sat by the harbour for two hours, watching the sun slowly set. From…

Watershed & Only happens when it rains Abi: Living in England we are used to the disappointment that poor weather can bring. We are used to cancelled plans, rained off sports fixtures and hasty contingencies. While it seems Seb is enjoying his fair share of rain in Norway, I seem to be experiencing similar conditions here in the UK, as if in sympathy. Bristol is something of a rainy city but this last week we have enjoyed some bright sunshine…

She is one of my favourite artists of all time and the reason I mention her here is because this image puts me in mind of the cover image of this album. I have been thinking for a while that I would like to try to recreate this photo and part of the reason I was…

Roses & Satsuma; The Crystal Meth of Christmas Seb: And so we’re into the festive season! But I seem to have missed the holly berries… or they’re still to come — I don’t know. Either way, this lone soldier of a rose hip was all I could find that reminded me of holly berries and cranberries and red currants — all that kind of… reddy festive stuff. The background… well… let’s just say I’ve been working on my bokeh technique…

South Downs Sunset & Celebration Seb: Ah, back to my comfort zone of landscapes. I thought I was doing rather well, having not done one since week 1! But here I am… chasing the perfect landscape yet again. This one’s of the South Downs (I think). At least, it’s south of where I am now, and north of Brighton, which I think is the South Downs. Basically there’s a bunch of roads that run across the tops of these lovely…
