Fields - Part 3 - October 2010

I am so late posting these photos, it's been a busy month, but suddenly it's time for me to take the November one's so better late than never. These were taken in the first week of October. I was rushing past one day and the sun was shining so I just took these on my phone.

The pretty field

The busy field (not busy at all... )

Typically, during the second week of October the maize was finally harvested. We went past as it was happening but we were late for ballet so no time to stop and snap. I had to laugh at myself though for being so engrossed in what they were doing!

Oh, and the photo below is of a field that I pass on my way to work and this was taken back in the Summer. These gorgeous sunflowers gradually looked more and more sad as the months went on until finally last week they were harvested too. So it's been a busy time around here lately, I particularly notice the trailer loads of onions (they smell).

Fields - Part 2 - Sept 2010

Gosh, where did that month go? So, here we are with the next set of field photos. It turns out that the pretty field has in fact been a bit busier than the busy field. I kept hoping I'd catch the combine in action on the pretty field but of course I missed the moment. Then I thought maybe I'd see the baler but I missed that too (and had I seen him I would have asked him to place his bales so that there were more in view for my photo too). And all the busy field has been doing is growing. So it has been busy but nothing particularly visible. I am now obsessed with when they are going to harvest the busy field. I take my camera with me on the nursery/work run just in case they are there, ready to take the maize away. But I bet I'll miss it.

The other thing I've realised is that both of my field views face east/south east. Therefore I won't ever have a spectacular sunset option. However, as my photos are going to be a lot more about an agriculatural study rather than an exhibition of good photography I don't think this will be too much of an issue.

Obsessed? Me? Anyway, here they are.

The Christening

On 1 August 2010 Grace Caroline and Beatrice Martha were Baptised at St John the Baptist Church in Snape. It was a lovely service and a wonderful day full of family, friends and two parents overflowing with pride for their two little girls.

Here are a few of my favourite pictures from the day courtesy of
