I wasn’t planning on driving on the track this time, not least because I’m still running the same tyres which are now starting to look rather worn, and also because I didn’t fancy getting up super-early.

I’ve lived near to a common / Country Park with lots of bridleways and footpaths for over a decade now, but have never walked them. Earlier this week that changed, and I went for a nice long walk along them (about an hour or so). Then the next day (yesterday) I did it again but even further (about 90 mins or so). I’m not really an outdoors person but I really enjoyed the peace and solitude, the birdsong, and the change of scenery.
I took quite a few photos, and several things caught my eye as being suitable for a photo shoot, should I ever want to do one.
Well, it was nice and sunny again today and yesterday’s blog post was on my mind so I thought “why the hell not?” and got my make-up on and went out to find those spots again, armed with camera, tripod and wireless shutter release.
The first one is up on Flickr already, and some of the others may go up over the next few days (not sure which ones yet; certainly not all of them), but you get to see them now!
The sunlight was a little harsh on some of the pics, which did not flatter me, but on the whole I’m quite pleased with how they came out.
When I came back from taking these, I decided to change into something less “outdoorsy” and popped into town. I managed to pick up some real bargains, but I will blog about those tomorrow I think.
Anyway, on with the photos…
Well, after yesterday’s little setback, I had an absolutely wonderful day today. It was sunny all day, and by mid afternoon was 27°C which was rather nice. So after I’d finished watching the British F1 Grand Prix I got out into the sun and took photos in three different outfits. And I felt so happy out there in the sun, and I’m so happy with how the photos came out, that I’ve decided I don’t really care about yesterday.
The dress is one I bought yesterday in Primark. It’s so comfy and I love it, and it was only £7 too! Baaaargain.
I’ll be posting pics of the other two outfits over the next few days. And in the meantime, I edited yesterday’s post to include a pic of what I was wearing.
