Month 2 of my challenge to take a photo every day for a year. The challenge is certainly making me become more active, explore my local community and take more notice of the world around me. Whether it’s improving my photography… you’ll have to be the judge of that! I hope you enjoy this month’s photos…

      Cheers Leo. I like to think they get better as the months go on – although looking back on these there were some nice snaps that month. Thanks for checking out my blog…

    Hi Jon. I run some dancing events (Lindy Hop and Blues) in Sheffield, and would love to use your gorgeous Stanage Edge pic from 20.11.11 in promoting one of my events. Is that alright? If so, shall I just include a link to your website as acknowledgement?
