Does life actually begin at 40? Really??

Life changes when you become a parent, and you never know by how much until you actually get there. Its different for everyone, and I have since found that for us, routines have become a huge part of our life. These can be both a good thing and a bad thing, although on the whole… Continue reading Does life actually begin at 40? Really??

The battle never ends

Here we are again on Sunday night, thinking about getting ready for the week ahead. Trying to make sure that we don't end up in bed too late, as has become a life long habit for myself, to the point I have now made it a new years resolution for myself. I don't always make… Continue reading The battle never ends

Football, it’s a bit like marmite really!

Hi, my name is Andrew, I am male, and I don't like football! There... I said it. I have absolutely zero interest, much to the delight of my wife, even the world cup only gets me mildly interested, and even then only on a patriotic level. I've always thought that the sport had lost its… Continue reading Football, it’s a bit like marmite really!

For the love of the weekend…

So here we are on Sunday nights blog post, and I have to say that I am slightly missing the daily blog posts, although I don't miss the time it took to write them all and the late nights when I'd left it to the very last minute, for whatever reason, especially in the second… Continue reading For the love of the weekend…

Living La Dolce Vita: Vibrant, Colorful Photos of Italy in the 1980s

A fantastic look at Italy in the 80s. Such simple photography, yet each photo taken with intention. It makes me slightly sad that travel has changed and I will never experience a place like this in a time when it is so undiluted and pure, free of the commercial side of tourism, and just being itself.

TIME

Italy has been through so much history that anything you say about the land and its people is doomed to repeat what has been said at least once before. And what may no longer be true was once true—and may be true one day again. But if there is a perennial aspect of Italy, it is the pursuit of la dolce vita, the sweet life of pleasure that the director Federico Fellini embodied with both sensuality and irony in his 1960 classic of the same name. The photographer Charles Traub alludes to Fellini in his collection of photographs from Italy in the 1980s, Dolce Via—the Sweet Way. Indeed, the Trevi Fountain in Rome, where the actress Anita Ekberg famously cavorted in the movie, is the backdrop of a number of Traub’s images. But there is something else Dolce Via shares with La Dolce Vita—not quite Fellini-esque but nevertheless…

To be a dad…

Todays photo from Sundays 10km solo run around the reservoir taking a much improved 57 minutes. If there is one thing that changes the way you see life, its becoming a parent. Its something I tend to reflect on from time to time, about how my life, perspectives and priorities have changed. Thinking about how… Continue reading To be a dad…

The year ahead…

"Never ask the wife to help you clean your camera lenses!" It's at this time of year that the majority of us tend to focus on one thing... exactly how much we ate over Christmas! If, like me, you're one of these people and you're really, really lucky, you won't at least be thinking about… Continue reading The year ahead…
