50/50 project #19-29 (Photography courses Cheshire with Picture It Big)

50 days with a 50mm lensOn our recent holiday in Pembrokeshire I had loads of opportunities to do the daily 50/50 shot and managed to keep it going throughout. Where I fell down was getting access to my laptop and precious WiFi - the kids won out each time so I hardly posted any of my shots. So here they all are - day 19 through to day 29, each with a brief commentary. It's been fun looking back on

For the love of dogs (by Cheshire Photographer Jane Burkinshaw)

You’re either a dog person or you’re not - no halfway house nor sitting on the fence about whether you like them or would have one as a pet.

I watched her play for a while and then wandered back to the pub where my two would no doubt be fighting over who could play Doodle Jump next. I passed a family of four playing pooh sticks off the bridge and

50/50 project #17/50 Surfing (by Cheshire childrens photographer Jane Burkinshaw)

Day 17. Surfing50 days with a 50mm lensThe kids are old enough to play in the surf on their own now but I still feel the need to check on them periodically (at the end of a chapter in my Asa Larsson Swedish crime thriller). It's a challenge to pick out your own children out of all the silhouetted, wet suit clad kids throwing themselves fearlessly onto each wave. I cheered a boy in a black and red wetsuit

Day16. ...and relax50 days with a 50mm lensAfter a marathon 6 and a half hour drive down to Pembrokeshire dragging our shed (caravan) behind us, we finally got all set up and felt as if we were on holiday. The caravan site is beautiful, just one mile from the beach and we are looking forward to exploring after a good night's sleep. That might be interesting as there are about a hundred very
