I just wanted to share a few photos taken with my phone this morning. Olly and I took the dogs out through the lanes that lead down to the cliffs. There are an abundance of flowers in the hedgerow at the moment. I fiddled about with them on PicMonkey. Do you use it? I was told about it by Gillian. It's great for making fancy collages and cropping and playing with your photos. I used an effect on the collage below. I quite like it.
I was also inspired by Nina at Tabiboo to try and take some pictures of butterflies. Her photographs of nature are simply stunning. It wasn't easy, but I got a couple. I think I need my posh camera for that. How do you take photos of nature, especially when it won't stay still?! I am of the point and hope for the best school, but would like to have the time (and patience) to sit and wait for the perfect opportunity.
It was a lovely walk. There is a breeze in St Ives today, which feels refreshing after the intense heat of the past few weeks. Olly ran down the lanes, and climbed the ancient stone stiles with gusto. We played the buttercup game, and tree in the summer game. The dogs chased imaginary rabbits, and I snapped and snapped and snapped.
That's me .
