Inspirational Friday

Today’s Inspiration is going to be a little bit different. I want to dedicate this post to my dad. I am a daddy’s girl and to me he is the best dad in the world.

Although we are different, I am academic and he is very practical and oozes common sense (something which I lack) we also share similar loves in Jazz music and the outdoors. My dad is a fisherman, not by trade but as a hobby. If he is not participating in it, he is watching, reading or talking about it. He has a passion for it that started at the age of 4. Ever since I was little I wanted to be with my dad and this, therefore led me to become a rambler. He has always enjoyed walking the dogs for miles at a time and even at the ages of 3/4 I used to follow him and my Grandad over the mountains of Wales for hours on end.

Recently he decided to buy a camera to document his fishing but also the beautiful places he visits and the wildlife he sees. As he is colour-blind and a bit of a technophobe I admit I was a little dubious. However, he has yet again astounded me with what he has done. All the following photos are taken on manual settings of his new Nikon Coolpix 500.

I am so proud of my dad for his first attempts at photography I do not think he has done half bad.

Love you dad xxx
