It has been a tough couple of weeks for me in terms of taking photographs, we had visitors over easter and it is a busy time down on t'farm and I have found it tough to find time, motivation or inspiration to take pictures...However this week I found an unlikely source of inspiration in terms of a request from one of my wifes clients who has requested assistance in illustrating his blog.She is currently digging through the DT archives to find around 160 pictures to illustrate a blog on self... continue reading
