Can you take pictures of property?

I see advertisements quite frequently for property photographer/floorplanners and wonder why there is always a requirement. How difficult is it to take optimal pictures of somebody’s home? Are the beds made? Are the cupboards closed? Is the floor clear? Have you made sure not to get your reflection in the mirror?…These pics were taken as my sister is selling up. She asked me to take the photos as some of the photography she’d seen online seemed rather hit and miss. Then I looked at my local agents photos and realised that not all of them know how to take a light clear photo at all….

Amazing fireworks displays at Eastnor Castle

I have always loved fireworks, and I saw an amazing display at Eastnor Castle, in Herefordshire last weekend where three firework display specialists competed. All three displays were astonishing, as was the display put on by the organisers MLE as the finale. Here are some photos from a very memorable evening.

Several attempts at the citrus peel before we got this right

The lemon mousse came together pretty quickly. Getting the citrus peel to do as we wanted was a learning curve all its own though!

Another rare fruit in our shops

You don’t see redcurrants for sale much in the shops so this year I grew my own. They have a sharpness that is refreshing in the height of summer.
