Spring things: what I’m shooting and what I’m doing

Happy Monday!

I’m very excited that the clocks have changed, and now we get sunlight (or maybe, lighter cloud than at night) in the evening. Soon I’ll be taking part in my most favourite afternoon activity, reading in the garden with a strawberry cider. Aaaahhhh.

I’m ready and raring to go with this new part of me, however I think I’ll ease myself in relatively gently with a photoblog from a recent trip to Camp Bestival (a festival held at Lulworth castle in Dorset, UK), and the surrounding Lulworth cove and town of Wareham.
