Totnes photography

A few weeks ago, I went to Totnes with my lovely friend Rin, a very talented lady who writes Glass Jars & Photographs. Rin’s passion is interiors, and she has one of those proper cameras with a big lens that comes in a case like grown-ups have. I felt a bit silly pootling about behind her taking pictures of pretty things with my phone, but actually it was great fun, and made me even more determined to get a proper camera and learn to take half decent pictures. (Camera companies looking for review take note here.)

The day was extra special as it was on the train on the way there that we decided to set up our own media training business, which is very exciting. We have a proper name and bank account and everything, so along with Rin’s camera, I think this definitely makes us Very Grown Up and Important Indeed.

I very rarely post pictures for their own sake, but today I am feeling happy in that way that makes you smile, sigh and look about in a contented way, and I wanted to be frivolous. I know the photos aren’t amazing, but I had fun taking them, and they remind me of a very serene and inspiring day out.

      Oh wow, are you? I am jealous – it is a really lovely place with a great feeling about it. Are you going to be moving far?

        We’re moving from Plymouth, providing we can sell. Fingers crossed!

    Wow, some great photos there, and fantastic colour quality! I particularly like the sheep (no wait, is it a goat?!!).

    Thank you for the lovely things you said about me and my blog! You have inspired me to get my pics edited – will try and put them up on Glass Jars & Photographs later this week.

    PS Glad you’re feeling happy :)

      Yeah, they’re not too bad for a phone! They are really hit and miss though – some days they come out really well, other times they are just a weird fuzzy mess. I blame the camera. It’s definitely not me.
