My brother works at the local aquarium and as it was quiet this weekend he let us in for free. Lot’s of fishy things in tanks to take photos of. The jelly fish took endless amounts of fiddling but I’m super pleased with the results.

Went for a wander on Sunday the weekend before last from Wallingford to Swyncombe Down and then to Henley. Really nice day for taking photos: today’s theme is trees.
Really pretty sunrise a few mornings ago.
Here’s some photos from my wanderings at the weekend. This week it’s the charming village of Ewelme in Oxfordshire and an equally delightful nearby pig farm. Factoid of the day: the building in photo #19 is apparently the oldest state school in the country.

It’s got a nicely preserved keep which you can climb to the top of for some excellent views of the quaint market town and surrounding [...]
