FINGER LICKIN’ | PICNIC SEASON

It’s finally picnic season and I could not be happier, I LOVE picnics! BBQs are great, but picnics are so damn easy and, for a sloth like me, eating while you lay under a tree in dappled sunlight is pretty much as good as it gets. Not to mention the fact that picnics are insanely easy to prepare – if you’re really not into cooking, then all you need to shop well and it’s job done (same goes for cheese boards).

I had my first picnic of the season a couple of weeks ago, we had cheese, olives, pistachios, hard-boiled quail’s eggs, chorizo, broad beans with lemon and ricotta on garlic bruschetta, warm roasted chicken and lemon and herb cous cous. It was pretty damn good, I don’t mind telling you! And I’m already planning the next, so I was smitten with this photo shoot when I stumbled across it on Roost. Shot for Kinfolk magazine, it perfectly sums up how simple and heavenly a picnic can be…

{ shutter bug } tumblr…

I was really into tumblr for a while. Then not so much. Then I was again. Then not so much. I’m guessing you smart folks can see the pattern I’m hinting at…
Anyhow, I’ve decided to give it one last chance, so my tumblr page has been given a facelift, and from now on it will be the home of all my iphone snappings be it from work, rest or play…
…there’s also an “Ask me anything” doodah. I have no idea what anyone would ever want to ask me, but there it is, just in cases. Come and visit sometime.

{ shutter bug } the ghosts of Versailles…

I am in awe of this collection of photos by The Cherry Blossom Girl.
The palace of Versailles at night, in particular Marie Antoinette’s private apartments…
 The ghostly feeling is incredible, you feel as though if you were still enough you may be able to hear the swish of ball gowns across the parquet floor or the tinkling of champagne coupés…
