Relaxing with a Camera

Access to the den is from the rear of the house barn

Hullo ma wee blog,

Behind the house there's a small shed with a vine covered arbour attached. It's a cosy hideaway to get out of hot sun to sit in the shade or just to spend a bit of time in of an evening while there's still warmth in the air. We use it on holiday as a favourite reading or chatting spot and spend a fair bit of time there.


      Which gets you to here.........

Yesterday we spent the day here at the house just chilling, doing some watering of the garden as it's been so dry here this summer. After the vegetable plots had been given a good hosing and all the flower baskets and borders had been thoroughly saturated I spent an hour or two with a beer and a book in the shade of the den. I had my camera with me too as I find it hard to be without it hereabouts. There's always so much to see, so much thats worthy of an attempt at a photograph that I always want to kick myself if the camera's not somewhere near to hand.

These are some of the photos from the den yesterday:











See you later.

I've decided you need real leisure to take good photos - seems like you are taking advantage of yours at present. I read the post below, too and I love that scene from Crocodile Dundee, too. What a great character he was!
Enjoy your holiday - sounds wonderful!

Hullo Rebecca - Being relaxed is certainly helpful in taking a photo I agree. I promise to do my best to stay that way!

Coc Dundee is one of those iconic 80's movies I think. They should have left it alone after the original one though.

A book and a camera are the best of companions,
