‘Portraits of Togetherness’

‘A photographers thank-you to NHS staff … as an image can speak 1000 words!’

Like everyone else, photographers appreciate everything that NHS staff give to others, especially so during the last few very difficult months.

There is very little more precious than an image of who or what we love, so numerous members from the highly respected Guild of Photographers have launched a “Portraits of Togetherness” campaign, offering free photoshoots and more to local NHS heroes.

I am offering 3 Complimentray Pet Portrait Shoots, along with the winner if they want to join in, along with 20-30 High-resolution digital images.  Full details of my offer and the nomination form can be found on my website. https://www.meltaylorphotography.co.uk/portraits-of-togetherness-nomination2020-05-31_0005

 

Lockdown # 4 – 16th April 2020

Three weeks of Lockdown completed and at least another three weeks have been announced by the UK government tonight.

It saddens me that only three days ago I wrote and the death toll for the UK was 11, 329. Today a further 861 deaths were announced and the total deaths have risen to 13,729. My Sympathies to all the affected families and friends. It really is hard to believe.

We will embrace another three weeks of this different world we live in and help and support each other as best we can.

I will continue to try and keep my lads focused, we have hit some boredom patches and it’s hard to motivate them when actually, there is not much fun about at the moment but you need to keep a positive mindset and think of nice things to do and keep your days filled with activities.

402A4617We have had some lovely walks in this nice weather and I have been taking the camera out with me. It’s not easy to do wildlife photography with three dogs and two teenage boys with you! The chorus of the birds is amazing at the moment, however, I can hear them but they are not so easy to spot! The Kites have been enjoying the clear skies.

I manage to get this shot of a Magpie, they are really shy birds and do not stick around for long. So with all my company I was amazed it did not fly before I got the camera up, which is what usually happens.

The Canada Geese are back. Lots of noise in the mornings as they fly around.

04 & 05 Apr 2020

I love to see the birds early in the morning finding the sun spots to warm up to start the day.

This Jackdaw couple have found a great nesting spot. A really snug little hole.

Not far from them I found this Rook getting his morning Rays.
