To celebrate World Photography Day on 19 August, Sue wanted to share a few photos, highlighting this beautiful country she lives in.
With the travel restrictions abroad and countries on the red, green and amber travel lists changing constantly, 2021 has been a very ‘staycation’ year. To celebrate our diverse country and to honour why living, working and holidaying in this country should be a top choice as opposed to an ‘if we have no other option’ choice, I wanted to share some of the photos I’ve taken this year while mooching around; from London and the Costwolds to Cumbria, Leicestershire and Norfolk.
Can I just state here and now that I’m no photographer and these photos have been taken on a ‘bog-standard’ mobile phone, so I take full responsibility for all the lighting, exposure and composition errors that are of my own making. Apologies to my grandfather who is probably turning in his grave over these photos, as he was a professional photographer and developer, who honed his craft taking military aerial reconnaissance shots in the First World War (that’s a whole other story!)
Celebrating #WorldPhotographyDay isn’t necessarily about the perfect photo, it’s also about an appreciation of the wonders of this country.
What photos would you like to share, to join in this year’s celebration?
