my dad’s longbow

(a gorgeous wooden longbow, crafted by a Hungarian named András Kovács… I must admit I’m rather jealous of this bow, it’s just so beautiful to look at, and shoot. A very different animal to my own sky-blue metal recurve bow, but so much fun.)

One more from the morning mentioned in yesterday’s post….

Looking out from Scheidegg, Germany, towards the Austrian Alps.

one summer morning…

from a while ago… over a year ago, to be precise…

out walking, at six in the morning, because she woke up and I decided I might as well, off into the pram with you and out we go… she fell asleep again, of course, very quickly. I walked up the hill, watching as the sun came up over the valley, looking down on the lake that I call home, still.

Shaking off the cobwebs

It’s been a while, yet again… hello? … echo…?
Well, life’s been rather busy, but isn’t it always. I haven’t picked up the camera as much as I would have liked. Not in a long time. But then, that’s what happens, isn’t it, with two kids under 2… No time for anything.

Today, though, was really lovely – sitting in the grass at the front of the house, the almost-2-year old drawing on the cobblestones with some chalk, and the almost 3 month old asleep on a blanket beside me.

And me, re-acquainting myself with my macro lens a little bit. Fun, fun, fun.

(the snow leopard above is from … I don’t know, months ago, from a visit to Dublin Zoo which was, unfortunately, cut short by rain and a cranky toddler… haha, yeah, oops.)

memories of Aotearoa

Three years ago today, we headed off on our three-week journey of New Zealand. The land of the long white cloud, Aotearoa…

One of my favourite spots: Cathedral Cove, Coromandel Peninsula, North Island

One day, we’ll go back, and bring the kids :)
