Welcome to the inaugural Love Photo Blogs ‘Snapshot Tuesday’!
Snapshot Tuesday is a weekly showcase of any photo loving bloggers wishing to share a picture that they have taken – or love – with the rest of the Blogosphere. We welcome everyone who has taken a photo from amateur happy snappers to hardcore professional photographers. There’s no photo-snobbery in Love Photo Blogs – it’s all about the pictures.
Next weeks Tuesday Snapshot we’ll be offering up a give-away to one lucky reader so make sure that you come back – and tell a friend, a photo-loving contact and your neighbours arthritic cat too – spread the word !
We have a couple of sexy new badges too
And now… enjoy!

We had a lovely afternoon in the Autumn sun, rushing through the woody pathways and jumping around in the grassy fields.
Simply fun in the beautiful countryside, a perfect way to spend a sunny Autumn Day.

As you see from the top picture this comes in a neat glass jar with a a cardboard label surrounding this remove this to follow the very very easy instructions. The instructions told me to use chicken though you can substitute this for prawns etc Also suggested to add to it was green beans which husband did, husband also added those little sweetcorn things.
I have been wanting to take the girls to this place for some time but just never seemed to be able to do it…..This is a beautiful walk, its up on the mendip hills overlooking glastonbury and somerset and really gives you a great feel for the english countryside. The girls loved it, although Maisy seemed to be really wary of the sheep poo which was everywhere 🙂 It’s just a very peaceful place and it was nice to spend some time with the girls and also give Kate a bit of time to herself to catch up on sleep as River seems to be a bit of a night owl. I then took them down to a place called Ebbor Gorge which was just a little walk down the lane. Kate and I use to go there allot before we had kids and I had forgotten how beautiful it was.
Little Photos From Little Fingers
The wonderful Mammasaurus has come up with a fab meme for us all to join in with. ‘Little photos from little fingers‘ is a chance to see what happens when you let your kid loose with a camera. This is a great one for us as E has always been obsessed with cameras and photos. Since he was little he has loved to have his picture taken and then spend ages flicking through them, pointing out himself and all the people he knows. You couldn’t ever leave cameras or phones lying around as you’d come back to find them full of pictures, normally of his fingers or the carpet. Since he turned two he has been getting better at actually pointing the camera at things and last christmas a very generous Grandma and Grandad bought him a kids camera to try his hand with. I plugged it to my laptop this afternoon and here are some of my favourites

Check out the picture of the lens cup at the bottom of this post and click on it if you want to know more. Oh and btw i want one of those mugs!
This week the theme is faces. Which is right up my street and through the porch, front door and into the kitchen. I love faces, its probably the thing that i love most about photography. Capturing that look on someones face, its a cliche but the eyes are the mirror of the soul and sometimes you look into the eyes and see such emotion it can take your breath away.

More on Monday…
You guys know I am found of a sunset. From our house on top of the hill we have an amazing view westwards which means stunning sunsets are a regular photographic subject and have starred in a few Silent Sundays and a whole blog post of their own
Sunrise, however, is mostly obscured by the houses that are just above us at the very top of the hill. I keep meaning to take a stroll along the road to the fields on the path overlooking the River Severn and the Cotswold Ridge to the east but I don’t really do mornings.
My parents also live on the side of a hill but their view is east facing. Which means their sunrises have the potential to be as spectacular as our sunsets! I was determined that, weather permitting I would get some decent shots of the sunrise whilst I was there this weekend. And I wasn’t disappointed…
No words, one photo.
Because sometimes a picture alone is enough to convey a feeling, a captured moment.
