Brooklands Museum in Weybridge is located just 20minutes from my family home and literally around the corner from where I scrape my cars through an MOT each year. Of those dodgy MOTs, many of them were carried out on my beloved VW Corrado VR6. A truly special car that has a cult following and is becoming an increasingly respected modern classic.
It's been a while since going to a car show and I noticed advertisements for the London Classic Car show at Syon Park. Unlike the previous offering, which was held in the London Excel Centre in the Docklands - this 'socially distanced' outdoor affair was very local to where I live.
Easter weekend had really nice weather so we were able to visit my sister's garden for my niece Arabella's 4th birthday and meet her new baby sister Betty. I haven't had the camera out for ages so today was the perfect opportunity to get some snaps.
I needed a holiday so, so badly. After a tough half term at school I tentatively booked 5 days on Skye. This is a trip I had planned for the same time last year when my plans were scuppered by a broken collarbone and subsequent shoulder surgery.
With no summer holidays, I have had to make do with day trips. Towards the end of summer we took a drive to East Sussex for the day.
Having moved into a new flat and Nadine using some annual leave to do so, we spent a couple of days in South Wales - Nadine, being a Dutchy hasn't visited Wales before so we made the drive west for a flying visit, stopping by in Cardiff on the way.
With travel and landscape photography off the cards for the moment (I probably would have just about gotten round to editing all my photos from my cancelled Japan trip by now.) I decided to get myself a macro conversion attachment for my camera. £10 for some really cool photo opportunities.
Following a busy few days preparing for and shooting Carly and Paul's wedding and having already made the journey way north of the border, Nadine and I extended our stay in Scotland and travelled north-west to stay in Fort William for New Year.
Paul has a close connection with Scotland, with both his parents being from Glasgow and coincidently his late grandparents living in Musselburgh just outside Edinburgh - where some of my family came to settle too. Carly had always dreamed of a castle wedding so Scotland was the obvious choice for them.
Give me a holiday in the mountains over a beach holiday. I love the ever-changing landscape in mountainous regions and the landscape of the Dolomites mountain range in South Tirol, Northern Italy was no exception.
