As part of our recent trip to the North East, we spent the day in Durham, around the cathedral and river walk. We also called by to see the Angel of the North, while we were in the area Here is a selection of photos taken on the day, so with mobile phone camera and a few with digital SLR. Hope you enjoy them.
We recently had the pleasure of visiting Beamish Museum in County Durham, England. It was a great day in terms of the weather, if anything a little too hot for such a long walk, but much better than it would have been had it been raining. Here is a collection of photos taken on the day. Some of the images were taken on mobile phone and a few on digital SLR.
I would highly recommend you pay the place a visit, it’s expanding all the time, with most of the buildings being taken down brick by brick from their original locations and painstakingly rebuilt within the museum. There is currently a small steet setup with shops and other businesses, houses, a steam train and station, a mine with shaft you can go down, and a farm. There is a 1950 town set being built at present, which should be a great addition to an already exceptional museum experience.
Thanks to a break in the weather, we got out and about for a walk. Mrs T and I decided to head for the Red Rock area of Wigan and have a walk along the canal there. Here are a selection of photographs I took with my phone camera. Hope you enjoy them.
There is a map at the bottom of the page to show you where Red Rock is.
We love to serve families at our studio in Lowton and have been doing so since 2008. Families come in all shapes and sizes with all sorts of characters at the heart of them. Families as small as two and as large as, well, many.
Great families lie at the heart of our communities and should be celebrated and treasured.
We specialise in celebrating families with photoshoots for each and everyone one of the family members as individuals as well as to enjoy and share together.
Our love of serving families runs deep, we love our family of relatives and friends, who include customers who we’ve got to know well over the years as we’ve seen their family grow and evolve. It’s a privilege to have an opportunity to capture those moments in time that will long be treasured, celebrating milestones, stages and events in their lives.
I decided to write the following piece about my thoughts about family, hope you enjoy it…..
Family don’t have to be blood related, they can include friends, pets, neighbours, colleagues. It’s not about the genes we have in common it’s about the love we share. Love is what connects us, what bonds us together, what fills us up.
Family energises us because if someone else can have belief in us, we have permission to believe in ourselves.
A family can be as small as two or has big as many. If you’re alone don’t be, reach out, there are people who care. We care! Strangers are potentially family you’ve yet to get to know.
You can’t take family for granted, they are a blessing not a promise. Love and care for them, share and bond with them. Celebrate their individualism and the uniqueness of your shared connection because no two connections will ever be the same.
When we experience the loss of a loved one, it is often the things that drove us mad in life that we miss of them in death, at least it has been in my experience.
Our faults and hang ups are part of what make us uniquely us. Give them space to be appreciated in ourselves and in others, particularly family, and not just in death but in life.
Love, cherish, celebrate each other every day. Smile, laugh and remember good times shared and never forget.
