Annie Laurie

Last week I decided to go fog chasing. You may wonder what on earth fog chasing is. It's where a mad  photographer gets it into her head that while she can see fog, there are pictures to be taken that could end up being somewhat poetic....hopefully....
So, after packing my poor child into her car seat ( once again ) I went driving to find something that spoke to me. Unfortunately, Id left it a wee bit late, ok, a lot too late, to capture anything remotely mystical .... HANG ON!
Have I told you who I happened to meet on the road side, while I was scrounging??
A Lady. Yep. AND she has been to the moon. You can't get more mystical and interesting than that, can you. AND, wait for it, she has even written a book. ( you can find it here ) 
No matter that this lady is stuck in a dog's body. Thats never stopped her telling her wonderful owner, Kym Afford ( who happens to be a fantastic artist ) = ( Ahh, the people you meet! ) all about her adventures and using her imagination. (Here is his page if you want to have a peek at his fab work )
Anyway, I have some photos of Annie to share instead. Not the landscapeish images I thought I would capture, but something/one just as interesting and wonderful!

  1. I thought I had left a comment? Well Annie Laurie should have, she is over the moon about it, your photos, and invites you to share a trip there ( to the moon) at

  2. Now, I have had raves about your work and photos of me from Canada, I know that is not as far as the moon, as Dad has been there too and said it is just over the other side from here, a bit.
    Anyway, he has trotted off with my book today so we will just have to wait for the man in the shop to get on with it.
    Love from
