Photos I’ve sold recently (June 18)

After many hours of uploading new images to my Getty library earlier this year, I thought I’d do another post on the images I’ve licensed recently and I’m starting off with this one, my bestseller, which was spotted last month by a friend of mine being used by CBeebies on their Facebook page. This photo is about five years old and I think if I’d known it would be a bestseller I’d have spent a bit more time cleaning up the background which is a rather off white…

A trip to ‘Dinosaur Island’

My 6 year-old son has for some time been badgering us to take him to a place he calls Dinosaur Island. Those of you who aren’t obsessed with prehistoric creatures, probably know this spot of better as the Isle of Wight.

When it comes to fossils and dinosaur remains the Isle of Wight is apparently pretty high up on the list of places to go. The Jurassic Coast is also close to us, but doesn’t involve a ferry to get there, so couldn’t compete (though probably would have been a bit cheaper!)

We took a day trip with an 8:30am departure with Wightlink taking both dogs and a car packed with spare clothing and food. It’s often reported that the Solent is the most expensive stretch of water in the world to cost and although our return ticket wasn’t cheap (£80) I felt it could have been worse for a one off special outing.

Cheats barbecue supper (without the barbecue!)

Barbecues are the taste of summer, but like everything in life there are times when we need to cheat a little. Sometimes it’s because we are cooking for a crowd and can’t fit everything on the grill and sometimes it’s because we don’t have the time or the inclination to get the barbecue out.

This post brings together three great summer supper cheats with no charcoal involved…

Home Life Project – June

Another Home Life Project weekend that I forgot about until Saturday night! Honestly how on earth does anyone stand a chance of remembering about it if I can’t?! However I did remember in time to capture our Sunday and taking part made me take my camera to places where I normally wouldn’t, which is what it’s all about!

Our Sunday started with a relatively new weekly tradition, joining in with Junior Park Run. Theo takes part most weeks and I volunteer, though some weeks like this one, he is both runner and helper which he really enjoys.

After that we joined in with a community picnic day in our village where Theo oversaw the tug of war and Alice spent a lot of time running free with her little friend Teddy, then it was home for supper in the garden and bed. As my mum would say, it was one of those days for the freezer!

Me & Mine – May

Me & Mine is a brilliant project which I joined at the beginning of last year. The goal is to take a family photo once a month, anyone can join, the blog part is really just the mechanism that acts as a reminder to do it….and frankly I really need that reminder!

The photographic results aren’t always perfect, but that’s not really the point of it. Looking back at last year’s twelve photos and seeing the children grow and change has been the ultimate reward, I only wish I had started it 6 years ago when Theo was born, what a fascinating story that would tell!

If you are curious you can see an album with all our Me & Mine photos here on Flickr.

Here’s May’s photo taken (and I doubt you’d guess this) at Marwell Zoo….
