Me and Hazel try to go visit family in the Philippines every 3 years or so, and of course I like to take lots of photographs of the places we visit while over there. So here is a selection of travel photos from our Philippines holidays. All these photos were taken with a Samsung phone camera.

Photography of Parbold in Wigan

If you follow this blog, you might already know that both me and Hazel like to walk and while doing so I like to take photographs, sometimes with my DSLR and sometimes just using my phone camera, which is surprisingly good. I love the quality of light at certain times of the day, and just can’t resist taking a few snaps as we walk. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Parbold lies in the valley of the River Douglas, at the bottom of Parbold Hill, about three miles west of junction 27 of the M6 motorway on the A5209. The village can also be reached by rail on the line from Manchester to Southport. Close to the village centre the Leeds and Liverpool Canal passes over the River Douglas. I’ve included a map at the bottom of this post.

Walking along the canal is a great way to pass the day if you’re looking for somewhere to go for a nice walk.

Family Stick Drawings

Family stick drawings are a fun, unique opportunity to showcase family members and can be printed on a variety of finishes, from prints to acrylics, and look specially impressive on metallic finishes. The lovely family below enjoyed a family portrait at our studio and are illustrated above.  But you don’t have to come for a family portrait session, just send us over a family photo and we’ll do the rest.

These are obviously unique commissions and may take a few weeks to complete, so if you’re interested in capturing your family please drop us an email and we’ll provide further information.

Quote graphics are very popular on social media, so we have been playing about with spreading the love with our JOY, LOVE, PEACE, HAPPINESS, graphic, layered onto a head shot image, along with a personal quotation. We think it is a great personalised Facebook cover image.
