Ziggy on a mission

Not been posting much over the last week, lots to do and Ziggy around to make things take twice as long. He has just had his second jab and will be let lose on the world on Sunday, but i don't think it will be a trip down the pub just yet.

44 not out

Well the blog is 3 years old today and I am 44! It seems such a short time ago that I sat here and wrote my first post and posted my first picture, now I feel like I'm on the edge of a whole new world, it's strange to feel so old and young at the same time.

What's also strange is that at a time when work is just starting to come in and I normally have a bit of free time, today, when I should take it easy, I'm rushed off my feet and will probably do a 13 hour day. Not that I'm complaining (much) being my own boss does have it's benefits, being able to blog at work is one of them and getting all my personal emails is another.

On the subject of personal emails, thank you all for the happy birthday messages, via here or facebook or sent direct, working on my own all day it makes me feel part of the human race again.

My gift to you all is this shot from our week in the lakes, it is from Causey Pike and shows the view over looking Keswick, click on the image for a better view. This spot became an instant favourite when we climbed it on our last day, i would love to sit you all there with a big box of cakes and just take in the view.

Ziggys first portrait

After only 4 days here i thought it time we had a proper photo. So i set up the lights and back drop, arranged the camera on a tripod and fetched Ziggy. I put the puppy on the table and turned to press the shutter and turned back to see puppy had vanished, this went on for some time, till i got the shots need.

Meet Ziggy

A short post to introduce the newest member of the Trafford family, Ziggy. Ziggy is an Australian Red Border Collie and a very small bundle of trouble, who at the moment is whining down stairs for my attention so i will have to go.

Pillar

Quite a busy week so just a short post to keep you going.

Got my P45 in the post yesterday, it means I am really free at last!

Spent the week working on the photos from the holiday, the new Nikon D7000 works wonderfully I can not fault it in any area.

This shot is from the top of High Crag and is of Pillar.
