life through my lens

my passion is travel; my enjoyment photography

These are a few of my favourite things….

I just love this photo. I took it whilst on a walk through Magadelene College in Cambridge.  It was late afternoon and the sun was shinging down through a gap in the trees and splashed down on these snowdrops.  I love the delicate bell-shaped flowers of the snowdrop and it always reminds me of the Sound of Music!

Good friends

In the afternoon of the the same day, my dear friend Andrew, who was in town for the day met up with me and we went walk-about through town. Me playing tour-guide!  We managed to sweet-talk our way into Queen’s College and I achieved one of my dreams in life….to walk across the Mathematics Bridge over the River Cam.  The memory I took from that day is; friends are dear and important and by being nice you can get to things without paying for them 🙂

Will you still have fun!

I recently spent a week in Cambridge and had a marvellous time caring for a 94yr-old man who despite his age was still very active.  In order to get around town easily he has a motorised scooter.  Suffice to say he should really have a red flag in front!!! Great fun. On this particular day we were on our way to the Science dept, to chat via video-link to the British Weather station in Antarctica & the memory I took with me of this time is that you can still have a good time even when you’re very old 🙂
