I'm Nina, a photographer, film maker and forever wanderer.  Passionate about nature, the great outdoors and all of life's adventures.  This is the place where I keep all my 'field notes'

All the fun of the fair

Just when you thought the nights drawing in were 'oh so' yawny, yawny boring and dull, something comes along and makes you see it in a completely different light.

Yes it may be getting dark very early on, but when in the Summer - unless you stay up ridiculously late and that is just no good for little ones - would you be able to enjoy an early evening expedition - and believe me it was - of roasted chestnuts and a jolly good old fun fair?

Now I'm not one for the rides, well not since the big wheel in 1988, but that's another story. But give me my camera and I'm not afraid at all to start experimenting with shutter speeds and trying to create some almost ghostly pictures.

And talking of the big wheel, that's the eldest Boo up there spinning around and around and around - somewhere - though thankfully not that fast!

Have a jolly good weekend and savour these last fleeting moments of Autumn before the Winter crosses our paths.
