My niece Zoe turned 5 recently so we had a party!

Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire!

November 16, 2009

Liz and I went to visit my sister on Bonfire night. The village she lives on still has a very well attended bonfire and fireworks display for Guy Fawkes night although the burning of effigies seems to have fallen out of fashion 😉 As soon as my nephew saw the bonfire he dragged us towards it shouting Fire! Fire! Fire! and then proceeded to tell anyone who would listen that the big orangey thing was a fire.

I didn’t take many pictures as I though it would be too dark to get anything but a few came out okay:

Stockbridge Voice

November 16, 2009

My family photographs are the subject of an article in The Stockbridge Voice. The Stockbridge Voice is a new Edinburgh based online magazine.

There are also features from 2 other Edinburgh photographers, the first featuring the amazing street portraits of Gustaf Eriksson and the second the chemical wizardry of Katie Cooke.

The magazine is currently seeking contributors:

“Are you a writer, poet, illustrator, cartoonist or photographer? Would you like to join us at the Stockbridge Voice? We’re actively seeking material on all kinds of topics – the choice is yours. Everything from serious minded to light hearted. If you have something to share, something to say, why not do it here? Geographically, we’re in Edinburgh and contributions should ideally be from those living or working in Scotland.

It goes without saying that nothing of a defamatory nature will be accepted by the Stockbridge Voice. The editor has the final word and wields a mean red pen. Oh, and I’m afraid there’s no money in it – we’re doing this for the love of words and images.

Send your contribution to We look forward to hearing from you.”

Waiting for Liz to arrive…

Today my awesome and beautiful fiancee arrives in Scotland to come and live here. I have the day off to go collect here and while I am waiting I don’t know what to do with myself so here are some pictures of her to mark the day 🙂
