We are looking forward to a number of adventures during 2018, with a number of excursions and activities already in the planning pipeline. One of the excursions is another trip to Italy, although this year we are going slightly earlier in the year than our usual late August & September trip. This year we will be going in time to enjoy Jane’s birthday in Tuscany, rather than my own. It seems that the affinity with Italy, and notably its food and drink, started promptly this year, as the following images from our kitchen on New Year’s Day will testify. Breakfast […]
Life seems to have whizzed by once more This year even quicker than those before. A year not unlike others with troughs and peaks A few sad days but fortunately many happy weeks. Once more we intend to make the most of what we’ve got Enjoying adventures before we lose the plot Amongst many excursions for Jane and Terry This year, New Zealand is on the itinerary Interest on investments is difficult to accrue It’s an uncertain future as GB leaves the EU But we’ll keep spending and put on a brave face And we’ll keep doing the lottery, just […]
As many of my blog readers will have noticed, I am partial to composing a verse or two. I find it an enjoyable way of sending a message or sharing some information in a more humorous and compelling way. Many people add a note or two inside their Christmas cards, letting you know about events that might have happened since the last communication. For some this is a quick update and for others it can be quite a Newsletter. I would often do the same, and a few years ago I started putting the news into the form of verse. […]
Two of my favourite things are being in Italy and eating Italian food. Another of my favourite things is taking photographs. Here’s a little slideshow of some of the dishes I enjoyed during a recent trip.
Travel It has become increasingly clear to me What we’re doing when we move from A to B. Experience shows that, as a general rule Travel is merely movement between places to refuel. This is particularly the case when on vacation When movement punctuates places of libation. A day starts with breakfast and talk of an itinerary. Outings inevitably interposed with something culinary No matter how the day progresses, or travel plans evolve We all know what the journeys ultimately involve After breakfast, the trip will include a place for cake and coffee Then somewhere for lunch before its time […]
Well, I have been thinking for some time that I needed to up my game with my website and social media presence. And so here it is, my new website for my photography. I hope you like it. My new website is here. When I started turning my hobby of photography into something I could share with others, and of course something I could promote as a commercial venture, I created tjmshots and later terrymorganphotography. These websites were to showcase my photographs and in the case of my first website for tjmshots also had a rather cumbersome online shop facility. […]
Since coming back from Italy (with more photos of course!) I have been preparing a new website to replace my old trusty site. It’s about to go live and as soon as it does I hope you will have a look around and click a “like” or two. I’ve built this website myself using a WordPress platform and I have to say that I’ve really enjoyed the experience and my route along the learning curve. As with all new things, and technological advances, there were times when I wondered what I was doing (and why I was bothering!), but also […]
Three of my favourite things are photography, food and Italy. So, taking photographs of Italian food has to be the inevitable consequence. When I looked back at my many photos from regular trips to Italy, it was not unduly surprising to find a large number of photos featured the food I was about to enjoy. I love food (as I’ve been heard to say on more than one occasion “…I eat nothing else…” ) and I particularly love Italian food. Read More
The new website is COMING SOON !It’s still under construction, but it wont be long before it replaces the old site. What’s more, it will launch in September and then, shortly after that it will include a commerce facility ( that’s an online shop in web-speak 🙂 )
Well this is exciting. This is my first Blog post. I’ve had a couple of websites since my photographic business was set up in 2001, but this is the advent of a new chapter with a bright shiny new website.
