Charlie’s Treasure

Black and white photo of Charlie taken with Canon 500D

This is one of my favourite photo’s of Charlie, one of my twin boys. I took it whilst on holiday in Croatia, and he’s on the beech showing me the ‘treasure’ he found. (Click the image for a larger version) Basically the bits of smoothed glass that were all over the pebbled beeches. My boys loved finding ‘treasure’ on the beeches.

The image was shot with a Canon 550D with a fixed 50mm lens and small aperture.

Snow – at last !

Here are a couple of pictures of the fun we had in the garden with the snow we had recently (winter 2009). We had two rounds of deep snow, so we had to make a snowman each time. Was it for the kids, or was it for me ? I’m not sure who had the most fun, but we all enjoyed it. It was great to see my daughter playing in the snow, she loved it. Even the little chaps had fun once they had got over the shock, and the cold.

My family

Here are a few pictures of the family. I live with my partner Jayne, who’s an art teacher in Bradford. We had our 1st child, Emilia in 2002, which was one hell of a change to our lives, as anyone with kids will understand.

In 2007, we made the decision to have another child, but as with all the best plans, things went a bit differently to how we intended, we were blessed with twins ! In August 2007 Charlie and Seth were born, they have just broken the 1 year milestone and are both full of fun. It’s being hard as hell I can assure you. They didn’t sleep through until just before their 1st birthday, which almost finished Jayne off !

Times now are a little easier, although finding time to do anything that’s not work, or children is nigh on impossible. Jayne is starting to get back into her artwork exhibiting, and i’m making time to learn some new stuff i’ve being itching to get into, Z-Brush and Mental Ray for 2. Before having children we both used to spend lots of our free time doing our own thing, Jayne doing her artwork and me spending time learning 3ds Max, Maya and such like, happy days !

This is Charlie, he likes chewing stuff at the moment….
