It has been a hectic few days! The library has been reallybusy with children trying to finish off the Summer Reading Challenge and in addition to that we had our last wedding of the year on Saturday. Luckily the rain held off and we had a wonderful day - the couple were absolutely lovely as were their respective families, the venues were great and they even had a horse & carriage! As you may know, I am completely camera-phobic and always avoid having my photo taken but I sneaked a moment with the horses just before they left and I just had to have a photo in case I never get the chance to photograph a horse-drawn carriage again! (Thanks to Robin from "Your carriage awaits" who very kindly took the photo for me!) If you are in the Cheshire area and know of anyone considering a horse-drawn carriage for a special occasion, I'd give them a call. The horses are incredibly well trained and posed beautifully for the photos! They were also impervious to my flash going off in their faces! The carriage is beautiful and the drivers so smartly turned out and helpful.
Yesterday we braved the Trafford Centre to buy Kate some clothes as a "well done" gift for her exam results. As usual i sat for ages in Hollister, people watching and holding clothes for Phil, Kate & sian. I'm too fat for Hollister clothes - Phil, who is slim, can only JUST fit into their extra-large t-shirts! But I did actually buy something; some Hollister scent which is gorgeous!
This final pic is just a grab shot I rather liked. I love the beautifully soft OOF backgrounds I get when I use my much loved 70-200 mm lens.
Now I must procrastinate no more and get on with editing - only another 544 shots to go....
