Hardy’s Well

Hello World!

So … it’s been a while since I blogged. Lots going on in my world and not much time to write about it! Also, this blog has generally had a crafty theme and, embarrassing as it is to admit, my crafting output has been sadly lacking of late. There are two main reasons for this: Firstly, I’ve been very busy with work/life etc, but also, I’ve been trying to re-teach myself how to crochet in preparation for some lush projects I have planned for the summer. So much has been going on, but just not necessarily with much to show for it. Be patient folks!

I have, however, been out and about with my camera (and fabulous new (to me) Pentax telephoto lens – which is about a third the weight of my old one! Woop!). I have lots of lovely photos waiting for my editing attention. Here are some to be going on with, of a regular session at the Hardy’s Well pub in Manchester. I’m not great at portrait-type photography at the best of times, and a session scenario presents its own challenges as flash photography generally isn’t an option and lots of movement means that slower shutter speeds are generally out as well. So basically, it’s a question of opting for monochrome, cranking up the Iso, and away we go … !

Here are the results – it’s a great session in a great pub with great friends. Wish I’d done a recording to embed so you could have the full experience! Anyway … here you go:


You’ll notice my lovely friend Zoe, knitting! I love crafting in sessions and ceilidhs. Some of my best work has my favourite tunes woven (knitted, stitched, crocheted) into it!

Hope you’re well, and enjoying good tunes of your own!

Thanks for visiting.

  1. Wonderful photos, as always. These pictures somehow perfectly capture the mood, the feelings, the atmosphere, of the moment.
