Last week I headed off with my wife Anne for what felt like a much needed bit of R&R down in sunny Dorset.
Staying on a working farm in a little village called Musbury on the outskirts of Axminster we had a wonderful week of sea fishing, visiting friends, house/location hunting and plenty of good eating.
Being away for some 10 days I had all the best intentions of getting out and doing a little bit of ‘shooting’ but if I’m honest I didn’t get the camera out of it’s bag once; cue the sharp intakes of breath 🙂 … I did however do a little bit of shooting every day with my iPhone which I really enjoyed and which also helped to keep me ‘in the zone’ but more as a way of documenting our time away.
As someone who likes to keep up a regular blogging schedule I did have reservations about taking 10 days out for a couple of reasons…
- Not being sure if I’d have any finger nails left from biting them away with the anxiety
- Ok maybe a little paranoid about with this one but being a regular 3x weekly blogger and then going quiet can be a bit of a clue that maybe you’re away. However, thanks to WordPress there’s the facility to schedule posts to be published at future dates and times so no need to worry 🙂
Anyway here’s just a few shots that I took with my trusty iPhone; all of which were edited ‘in phone’ using a couple of Apps: Best Camera and Adobe Photoshop Express:
Eating out costs were kept down thanks to a bit of nimble rod work 🙂
How can you possibly tire of views like this???
