Fireworks at the Lord Mayor Celebrations

Fireworks at the Lord Mayor Celebrations

These photos are taken last Saturday, at the fireworks show at the Castle… The show only took 10 minutes, but it was spectacular! People waiting for the fireworks to start… And there they were… Finally a photo of me taking pictures of the fireworks šŸ˜‰ And in the other one you can see the smoke after the fireworks had finished. This is a long exposure and turned out quite nice! We also walked over the fun fair in Chapelfield Gardens….

Lord Mayor Celebrations – Parade

Lord Mayor Celebrations – Parade

Hello! These are the photos I took at the parade last Saturday… A little girl waiting for the parade to start, and the pipers opening the parade. This is the Norwich Samba Band… they are quite good (musically), and the dancers look great! But my reason for not liking them is obvious in the second photo… it looks like most of them were forced to play, such grumpy faces! Come on, smile!! šŸ™‚ A girl from a Steeldrum Band and…

Norwich Cathedral

Norwich Cathedral

Here are the photos I took at the second lesson of the travel photography course! We had a similar assignment: take photos of the cathedral as for a brochure or magazine. I had been to the cathedral before, but never took photos there. I am normally not very interested in churches, but by having this assignment, it made me look at it differently and I really enjoyed wandering around taking photos! I also tried to get some people in my…

We had a chat, and then he gave us a sort of assignment: to take photos of the building (inside and outside) as if doing it for a brochure. He also wanted us to practice in having people in our photo and asking their permission before taking photos. A bit scary, but it was actually really nice and…

Norwich Castle & Royal Arcade

Norwich Castle & Royal Arcade

I *finally* made it up to the Norwich Castle… after being here for nearly two years! I didn’t go in, just walked around, enjoyed the view (it’s high on a hill) and took some photos. Built into the hill of the castle, there is Castle Mall, a shopping centre. This seems typical of Norwich, you build a shopping centre in a castle, you hold beer festivals in a church and there is another shopping centre where you walk over a…

Teaching Science

Teaching Science

As promised, some photos of my last science lesson at South Harford Middle School! I did a lesson on weather, well it was on thunderstorms, hurricanes and tornadoes. At the end of the lesson, we made a tornado in a bottle, which was lots of fun! I really enjoy going to this school. The kids are always so enthusiastic and full of questions šŸ™‚ This was my last visit this school year, but I’ll go again after the Summer break….

Paul's Birthday

Paul's Birthday

Hello! It’s more then 3 weeks ago now, but here are some photos of Paul’s birthday šŸ™‚ Making a sachertorte (chocolate cake) the night before, I almost took a bite! I had to wait until the next day though šŸ˜‰ Here is Paul with his cake! He wasn’t happy with the candles I bought, but I think he was lucky cause I almost had to buy 27 as they ran out of 6’s in one shop hehehehe…. After eating cake,…
