From my bohemian studio in rural Rutland I also teach photography & styling online via my Photocraft® photography e-course to a global audience of creative people who make & sell lovely things.

Go behind the scenes

 All kinds of yum  Despite the amazing looking mint choc chip I had Jaffa Cake my friend had Turkish Delight. #summerdays #instafood #tastetherainbow #weekendexplorer #choices #icecream #alwaysonanadventure #explorer  Love looking at the houses on my run, this one is beautiful right out at the edge of the lake. I guess it would have been at the top of a hill before the valley was flooded to make the reservoir. #thingsiseewhenirun #instarunners #littlerunsbigworld  Sending some  to our friends in Europe, not all of us Brits want to break up! #remain #euref #vote #peace #eureferendum #together
 Super pretty cottage covered in roses spotted on my run yesterday. In love with the sandstone around here.  #thingsiseewhenirun #englishcottage #running #myrun #littlerunsbigworld #instarunners  Looking for silver linings....not found any. What a sad day for the UK, for peace and for small creative businesses. ☁ This beautiful place suddenly doesn't feel like home anymore   ...drinking coffee up in the trees overlooking those stunning UNESCO protected stepped rice fields... #Bali ☕
 A very English scene  snapped while out running to the top of a particularly tough hill which just sums up the day yesterday. Me and Britain, we had a falling out. I ran out my anger of the vote result in order to clear a foggy head. I was all about leaving the bad attitudes of this nation behind and moving somewhere new, why should I invest in the future of this selfish place? but then I saw so much beauty and lovely friendly tourists on my run that my home pulled at my heart strings and calmed me, momentarily. Somehow England has become home to lots of angry people who want to 'take our country back' (according to at least 3 roadside signs nearby and that astonishing vote). I'm not quite sure where they think our country has *been* exactly other than historically taking over other territories and fuelling wars. It's obvious that many mean 'taking it back' from immigrants, which is also hypocritical madness when we are all descendants of immigrants to this land...maybe no one has ever told them that! From what I have read it seems only very few people had figured the sensible, awesome, non-racist, valid reasons to leave or stay (and there are some on both sides) so I can't be angry with individuals. My anger is with the irresponsible way we were given this huge important decision with no facts, naturally not many people were going to brush up on politics and make informed decisions of their own. Thanks to Hameron (that name was always going to stick) we are now left in a confused pickle while he just runs away from it all and resigns! I didn't vote him in and should be happy to see him go but seriously, other people did vote you in so do your job properly. For now I'll accept that this is a democracy and get over it despite suddenly feeling a little alien in my own home, but if bog brush Boris ends up at the helm then I may just have to jump overboard and become an immigrant in new lands. Yes it's running away, no the grass probably won't be as green, but a Britain without cultural diversity & unity but with angry closed borders? That sounds like hell. You're welcome to share my little boat regardless of how you voted   Beautiful floral display and all artificial too! #shopping  Remembering our travels in Bali last year and this tea & coffee tasting session with the most amazing views☕
