Roll the Credits

I think I write this on the 28th (or 29th!) of the month every time I participate in February Photo Fest, but where has the month gone?! I planned to go out with a bang so saved one of the best photos of the month (IMO) for the finale. This photo was the main reason I called this week ‘buildings and structures’ not just ‘buildings’!

Three images from our day at the viaduct have already been published but for some reason neither I nor Exhibit A or The Other Livvy have ever published this great shot (though it does hang on their bedroom wall!).

This day out is probably my favourite photo adventure day I’ve ever had while doing this blog. I’d had this location on my list for years (and we all know how much I like ticking things off lists!), the core gang were all present and correct and (best of all!) it was during summer 2021 so it was a joyful day of picnicking, nudity and photos when those things had a fresh new glow about them after successive lockdowns.

I wasn’t sure whether I’d do this year, and only decided on the 31st January that I would, so I’m really pleased with how it panned out. What I love most about my February Photo Fest is that it’s a collaboration. My last minute decision to participate and my work trip meant I didn’t have time to organise my customary photo days this year so thank God for archives and that lockdown photo project, which is the gift that keeps on giving! Happily, apart from one favourite regular who wanted a break from sharing their naked self for a bit, I managed to get all the usual suspects in and even introduced you all to a new partner. Hurrah!

I intend to wind this blog up when I turn 50 in December 2024 (what can I say, I’m a completer finisher who likes clear endings!) so next year will be my last February Photo Fest. Taking part this year has definitely put the fire in my belly for planning an absolute banger to go out on next year!

Thank you to everyone who has commented and shared. Sorry that work has got in the way of me sharing and commenting on a daily basis but as always I plan on looking at everyone’s full set and sharing my favourite shot from each of you. Congratulations to everyone who has completed the month.

February Photo Fest 2023

Tunnel Vision

It’s not a tunnel, but I liked this title, suggested by Ruth, particular because when I get an idea for a photo in my head I definitely get tunnel vision! Photo taken by Haiku.

This is the third photo I’ve shared from our day out to Ouse Valley Viaduct. There are plenty more to come but we’ll leave it at a trilogy for now and I’ll bring out a few more in February!

Sinful Sunday


Last month a few of us headed off to Ouse Valley Viaduct with the main intention of capturing Kateroo’s 40th birthday photos. Of course, when you’ve got a group of exhibitionists together on a sunny day in an incredible location, they’re not going to stay clothed. But that was a good thing because I had many idea for how to use those arches.

Featuring, Livvy, Katteroo, Honey, Haiku, and Exhibit A.

Catching Fire

Way back on the 1st October 2020 I tweeted that I wanted Ouse Valley Viaduct to be the location of Kateroo’s 40th birthday shoot. Clearly the small matter of a pandemic got in the way of that happening in time for her actual birthday in December 2020 but this week we finally caught up with it. What an incredible day we had. Seven of us decamped to the Sussex countryside for a few hours of photography, picnicking and dodging of frisky cows in a field.

We knew if the sun was on our side the fiery tones of Ruth’s hair and the viaduct’s bricks would be a match made in heaven. This turned out exactly how I wanted it to, but there are many more to show from this day, including more of Ruth, some group shots, some of The Other Livvy and Exhibit A and some of me. So expect to see a lot of these arches over the coming months!

Sinful Sunday
