So, finally got round to looking through all the images I took a couple of weeks ago, of the Willis Building in Ipswich. It was the 40th/Ruby Anniversary of it being built by Sir Norman Foster in 1975. It’s an amazing building and looks still as modern today as I imagine it looked when it was first built. It had been announced on the radio that is was to be lit up ruby red so there were quite a few of us photographers out with tripods and remote controls trying to capture it all.

Did a lovely walk on Sunday in Woodbridge, local Southwold brewery @Adnams has a great list of local circular walks starting/ending at their pubs and we have done a few so far this year. Really loved this one as we timed it just right for the sun to set and I got some lovely shots of the River Deben which snakes its way along the right of the town. You walk past the Tide Mill and some shipwrecks and old warehouses. There are also some boatyards down there too which always make for interesting shots.

Got a chance to go to the Suffolk Coast the other evening and caught a glorious sunset. Also managed to dust off the old ND Big Stopper to get some really long exposure shots with moving clouds etc. Did not bring the wellies so ended up getting slightly wet feet – oops! With this great weather we are having might try and go back sometime soon with wellies this time to get some more shots of that pill box going into the waves.

Thank you to lovely Vivia for showing us some fabulous wild foods that we can forage for in the hedgerow, I loved the hedge garlic and the plant that you can burn as incense sticks (if I could only remember it’s name) I should have made notes on the day. Who knew that you can do stuff with hawthorn berries I always just thought they were just looking pretty but are really like little apples. We found some lovely ripe blackberries as well which promptly ended up in my tummy. Also made my first blackberry brandy this year, thank you to my friend Genevra Champion for the recipe!

Spent an incredible Friday evening and night on Orford Ness on the 31st August. The National Trust run two of these a year and you get to stay in a shared house with 6-8 other peeps. John the lovely photographer who took us round was very knowledgable and so was Simon who knew lots about the history of the Ness and what was going on in all the buildings.

Got the first shots here but am still looking through them and will get them up here as soon as they are done.

I do some photography for lovely Jane who creates the most amazing personalised gifts, towel, bathrobes, hooded baby towels, flannels etc for her customers, by hand right here in the UK. She got an article published in Hello! magazine the other week which used one of my photos!

Very exciting!
