I can’t believe that it’s 5 years ago that I started my photo of the day challenge ‘I Saw This & Thought…’! If I’m being honest I thought it would only last for a year before I stopped. But it’s an addiction, trying to out do myself with each photo, challenging myself to take better pictures and show you what I find interesting and quirky in everyday life. The photo’s I take are not just for me, they’re for everyone and I hope I’m able to spark memories, create talking points or even just make you smile.
I’ve taken over 1,300 photos during my challenge and these are just some of them. It was hard to choose which photos to put in my montage, but I decided to just go with the flow and pick some of my favourite and most popular pictures. You can see all of my photos on my Instagram page, where I continue to post my daily pictures.
Each photo has its own background story to tell and I know exactly where I was when I took each one, it’s almost like looking back at family photos, these pictures remind me of certain times in my life; happy memories, sad memories or even a time I just want to forget! But at the end of it all I love taking photo’s and my challenge now is to never stop, but to continue and see where it takes me; an exhibition? A book? Watch this space!
Oh and if you’d like to buy any of my prints they’re available at my Folksy shop here!
Well I said last month that Spring had arrived but I think I underestimated it! April was beautiful and warm, which meant those flowers that were blooming in March were even more spectacular in April. There were pretty cherry blossom trees, which snowed delicate pink petals at the slightest of breezes and fields full of dazzling rape seed blooms contrasting against bright blue skies. Oh I did manage to capture some great signs and architecture in between…
Spring is most definitely here and it has brought an abundance of colour and flowers with it, which has meant for lots of flower photos over on my Instagram feed. In between the flowers I also captured animals and food…
What a quick month February was! It was a month of capturing changes in the weather and nature, so many of my photos were of flowers and the sky! If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Facebook you’ll notice this and hopefully you didn’t mind!
January has been a varied month for my ‘I Saw This and Thought’ challenge. A lot of the photos I took were a case of being in the right place at the right time, which makes it fun, exciting and random – which I love!
Some of my favourite photos this month were the neon lights and the snow scenes, which made the grey days of January a lot more interesting…
December provided many opportunities to photograph and capture lots of different subjects, some quite random which I love, it makes life a little more interesting that way. I don’t normally pick favourites but I’m going to break the rules and say my two favourite photos from last month were the Scottish Whisky and colourful chairs. They’re just colourful and great!

November was a very colourful month for photography. The changing of the seasons meant there were some wonderful wintery skies contrasting against the burnt okra hues of trees, shops preparing for Christmas with eye-catching displays, plus the odd quirky find that had to be shot and thrown in for good measure…
