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'

Just So

All words and photography © Nina Nixon

Fly me to a magical world of words and wondrous adventures, where you can loose yourself for days under the enchanting spell it casts.

From the cautious where a book is a precious and most treasured thing.  Each page absorbed, turned over delicately.  To the more ferocious speed readers with a  forceful hand that can crack a spine in one swift motion.

Book markers, night readers, under the covers with a torch in hand, solitude or dog eared marking the last place where they stopped, ready to pick up again when the next ten minute opportunity shows itself.  Though if you're anything like me it's always just another five.

No matter how you approach a book it is the same for us all - words create pictures that come to life in our heads

We loved the games tent at the Just So festival - it held different curiosities for us all.  It even housed us when the clouds unexpectedly opened threatening to soaks us all.  We lost ourselves (or gained - depending on how you look at it) quite a few times over the course of a day.

I haven't sorted through all the pictures from our day at the festival and with a few days away coming up for us then the mad rush with back to school stuff - I always leave it until the last minute - I haven't had time to take in all the things that left us entranced... spellbound.  But I will - just give me a week...or two.
