Longleat Safari Park

This week, Hannah and I stayed in at Center Parcs in Longleat forest. One of the nearest attractions is Longleat Safari park. I’m not an animal expert but I do admire their beauty, so naturally I took my camera. I ended up taking over a thousand pictures of creatures great and small, ranging from small […]

Cheerleaders

I don’t normally go around taking pictures of cheerleaders, but today the University of Bristol hosted an Olympic-themed street party to celebrate Universities Week and to showcase some sporting talent. I thought the whole event was a bit lame – no real sports displays, just a few people playing a variety of sports messing about in the […]
