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…

Heath horses & Paws for thought. Seb: As always, a bit of scary synergy occurring here — it’s almost like ‘and here’s a close up of the horse…’ I was up on the New Forest this weekend! I didn’t get a chance to take many photos, but the few that I took came out well. William the Conqueror planted the original seeds of the New Forest, and now it’s just a lot of scrubby heath land with lots of wild…

If you’ve been stalking me on either Twitter or Facebook, the next piece of news probably won’t come as a surprise. Truth be told, I’m going a little crazy here in cold, grey, snowy, dismal England.

It never ceases to amuse me how suddenly, we are all expected to snap back into shape, like whippets after the festive season and then spend the rest of January feeling bad about it. The New Year is also an opportunity to clear out, replace and take stock of the things that perhaps no longer…

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…

Pumpkin abuse & ‘Damnit mum, I told you to get a small one!’ Abi: It’s that time of year… Before I go any further, I just want to point out to our American chums that Halloween is nowhere near the big deal it is in the Yooessay. It’s more of a weak nod as opposed to the full on, horn tooting TA DAAAA! it is for you guys. If I’m really honest, Halloween in the UK is rapidly approaching something…
