PORTRAIT & WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER BASED IN SUFFOLK – CAMBRIDGE – NORWICH UK
I am reopening an old project which I had no time to finish last year. Saudade still interests me for many reasons – linguistic, sociological, historical and not the least – personal. Saudade is so far the best word to explain the way I felt after I left my favourite place and my home for 7 years – I often think of my life there and sometimes secretly wish that I can go back and be this previous version of me again.
For those who don’t know what saudade is, here is possibly the nearest description by Aubry Bell (1912):
‘a vague and constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist, for something other than the present, a turning towards the past or towards the future; not an active discontent or poignant sadness but an indolent dreaming wistfulness’
Even after 10 years living at a different place in a different part of the world, I am still giving into this ‘dreaming wistfulness’ and my new word falls apart for a moment and I stop being who I am.
Hi all. I have a short survey on selfies which is part of my dissertation research. I would appreciate it if you take 2 minutes to do the survey. It is anonymous, it is easy and you all take selfies 🙂 Thanks a lot!
I found a way to keep my favourite flowers…

Anybody in London in October? Pop in!
Submitting work for the Photomasters in London this October has proven a difficult task. However, after some deliberation, calling a friend and a strong coffee, I think I am going with Crossings 1.
Below are all options, starting with Crossing 1 on top, followed by Crossings 2 and at the end Scenes of Portugal.
Am I making the right decision? Would appreciate your feedback….
Scenes of Portugal
IPhoneography in Portugal
Just a quick preview from the Portuguese adventures – still on the road and the full photo essay on Portugal is in the making.
For now I can say that I have never enjoyed travelling so much. The food itself will be a chapter on its own.
Writing this while waiting for petiscos in a small Portuguese restaurant in Porto.
The food is here – so, bye for now!

As usual, thoroughly enjoyed working around the May Balls in Cambridge. This one is from St. Andrew’s College Summer Ball
This is a blog that I enjoy very much reading. I hope you will too
Delivering Northabout to Bristol
Hi, I’ve finally got Dad off the phone for long enough to get the laptop off him, so here’s instalment two. You know how I said yesterday was a long tiring day? Yeah, well, its got nothing on today. After I finished writing to you, best beloved. I managed to get to bed at midnight, just in time for a full nights sleep before I got up again, at four thirty. We immediately got underway to just round the corner to a nice little town called Portishead at six. We commenced the daily sorting out of the boat and then stopped at nine, for breakfast. After that we continued work until four pm. We then lleft the harbour and motored down to Bristol by six. Details will follow. The early morning was fairly smooth. We had no real hiccups on the way to Portishead. When we…

I must say that I did not ask him to release the balloons.
I saw him standing with his hair on fire and took the first photo. He saw the camera and without moving otherwise, released the balloons with that devilish look in his eyes and making sure that I am taking photos.
The last one is my absolute favourite – that raised finger pointed at the balloons is such a statement!

That was a lot of fun!
