They May Say I’m A Dreamer I love taking photos of people from a distance or from behind them – I think it shows a sense of the unknown. Usually it is me taking the photos of other people from the distance but I was pleasantly surprised to discover a couple of old photos of me taken in […]Read More Solitude? Dreamer? Both!
What Are The Kelpies? The Kelpies are two big massive horse head things by the side of the road near Falkirk, well at least that’s the Steviepedia description anyway… The official Wikipedia description is as follows… “The Kelpies are 30-metre high horse-head sculptures, standing next to a new extension to the Forth and Clyde Canal, […]Read More The Kelpies: Never Look A Mythical Water Horse In The Mouth Unless You Are Taking A Photo
