Life is pretty awesome right now. I’m on school holidays for 3 weeks. Basically half-way now, but it’s been awesome. I’ve been pretty busy and stuff, and as so – haven’t found the time to do much stuff photo-related and haven’t made an effort to put much up in the way of new photos. I was pretty sick of photos after taking 2000+ in the last few days of school. But, life still went on, and I still took my camera places and have found a few decent photos on my memory card.
As I said, I’ve been pretty busy. We had a social gathering at John’s house which was sweeeeet, Toy Story 3 came out (which, by the way, is amazing – go see it if you haven’t already), I’ve had some friends over, went to a movie night with friends, drove out in the country for a few hours, had brunch at John’s and today, I had an amazing day with my girlfriend.
Life is awesome.
This photo is from pancake/pikelet brunch at John’s, Sony 50 f/1.8 DT ambient light only. I ordered wireless trigger(s) and umbrellas and all that shebang.

We were heading to Bourton-on-the-Water, so didn’t expect a 2 and a half hour stay at Evesham Country Park!
There is a light railway at Evesham Country Park – the Evesham Vale Light Railway.
The Evesham Vale Light Railway operates in Evesham Country Park in Worcestershire, England, where it opened in August 2002. Constructed at 15 in (381 mm) gauge, the line runs for over a mile through the park, including a lengthy section through the fruit orchards. Passengers are conveyed throughout the year, although operations tend to be limited to weekends during school term time, becoming a daily service during school holidays.
Trains run from Twyford Station, opposite the country park’s main Car Park. The run takes around 10–15 minutes, through the Apple Orchard and around the Balloon Loop to Evesham Vale Station. Here, there is a few minutes break. Passengers can either break their journey here and enjoy a picnic or country walk (returning on a later train), or simply get out for a look at the locomotive. The EVLR staff are always on hand to answer questions. The train then carries on, out of the Balloon Loop, upgrade towards Twyford Station. The locomotive is then turned and run round ready for the next departure.
