The week that was in photos

Hi! This week’s photos focuses on my children and the outdoors. Unlike UK, the Easter break is short here so it’s still school as usual. But we still try to go for a nature walk once or twice a week.

I adore this shot of Luce (above) in black and white in the secret sandpit.

Although there are some beautiful wild habitats in the Hamptons (such as this nature preserve where we saw Osprey in a nest last weekend), most gardens seem overly manicured. So I was delighted to see flowers and plants blooming randomly by these front steps.

I wondered what Luce and Theo were talking about after I picked them up from school?


I went for a run – well, more of a walk – in the woods on Wednesday morning.

Blue Jay on deck

Our garden and bird feeder are constantly visited by wild birds. The Blue Jay was back to pick up seeds from our deck. I made my first Google Plus Gif this week using a sequence of shots from last week of the Blue Jay at our feeder.

On Friday when I arrived to pick up my two from an after school club, neither wanted to leave as they were having so much fun drawing with chalk on the playground. My daughter was giggling with delight and I had to sneak up to my son while he was drawing. I’ve added both shots as the Better Photo Project this week is about photographing happy children.

It’s already week 15 for Project 365. Later next week we’re off to Savannah, Georgia to visit my Mum and we’ll be joined by my brother and sister!

Have a lovely week ahead!

Cheers, Kriss

  3. Everything is so nice. My favorite is your run/walk photo. It is so warm and vivid. #betterphotoproject

    • What was so special is I was out there for an hour and a half and never encountered one other person. Although in the summer season there’s probably lots of others wandering in the woods!

  4. Ooo enjoy your time in Savannah ! These really are lovely captures. I too take to the woods on my own at times to walk or run – very soothing stuff.
