I went down to the school gate today with my big Nikon D40 strapped around my neck.


Curious, a couple of the mums asked what I was planning to capture on camera.


Hmmmm, let me think about that one…


For about five seconds…


Do you think they notice a mum armed with a camera is following them?


Oh who cares what they think.


I love this time of year.


It's so lovely here.

    Perfectly captures the Regatta. Thanks for the memories!
    What’s intriguing me is that when I bumped into you on the towpath you had hubby and kids in tow – did they notice what you were photographing?!

    I doubt they even saw me, but might have been slightly annoyed like the buzzing of a mosquito when trying to sleep…

    Fwor!!! I cannot believe they didn’t notice you trailing along behind them. Or perhaps they were just indulging you?!

    I really like that picture

    That brings back lovely memories of my college rowing days – yes it was hard work training but the scenery was delightful !

    Listen, this is SERIOUS PHOTOJOURNALISM!!!
    We need to know what’s going on in the world and rely on you to fill us in.
    Thank God you were there.

    Beautiful scenery!

    Very good; the views round this way are hardly competitive I have to say…

    I could have swron I left a message earlier – but I must have been far too distracted to press comment. I like your style lady – nice photos!!

    Don’t we all just love a little heat wave? Thanks for capturing this beautiful day for us!

    And there I was thinking you were out to get a picture of the towers at Henley (did think that was a bit random and come to think of it must have been a typo) but all day I’ve thought you were capturing a picture of those weird white things they have to tell you which boat is ahead.
    This was a MUCH better idea.
    I miss my rowing days when I spent too long at the boat house… Sigh…

    hahaha! So funny. Good thing you had your camera and boy, it must have been HOT there.

    Pity it comes just once a year…

  19. 02/07/2009 / 18:30

    Well, at least they’ll give you a reason to come back from the US…

    OMG! You “captured” the Italian rowers!!! Lucky you! These are the perks of living down south…nothing of that kind ever happens here…Ciao. A.
