Photography Projects

So, Friday is upon us already. This week has gone so quickly!

I have been thinking about my photography lately, and although I said to myself that this year I wouldn’t really take on any challenges like a photo a day or the year of film, I am actually craving a challenge. Or at least some structure to my photography.

Any ideas?!

First week at the shop

Well the first week at Saltmarsh and Samphire has zipped by! We have had a wonderful time.

Our opening day was a great day – lots of people came in to see us and we sold a few things into the bargain which was brilliant.

We have found that even sitting in the shop in the slightly quieter moments during the day is lovely.  I think it is a great space and I am so pleased to call it my own – and I am really looking forward to the rest of the year and beyond!

Something completely different for a Monday morning…

I came across this lovely animation via Simon of Savidge Reads (go and check him out for some book based banter and occasional cats – love his blog and podcasts) and thought I would share it with you too.

Gorgeous animation.

Shop Update #2

It is all coming together now – really not long to go until opening and everyone is so excited!  I thought I would give you a little post with some pictures of what we have been getting up to at the shop this last week or so.

Sneaky piece of work up

Couldn’t resist trying out a photograph on the new shelves!

We are opening tomorrow – it all seems a little bit surreal at the moment, I am sure it won’t tomorrow morning when we are all in full swing!  So looking forward to seeing what this little shop might bring.

I’d love to see some of you if you are ever in the North Norfolk area – we are at 25 Station Road, Wells – Next – the – Sea – do pop in!
