#MySundayPhoto – A Romance in London?

Whilst travelling from Devon to Essex, we decided to spend a couple of hours exploring, and introducing the Little One to London.

Whilst wondering over the Millenium Bridge, we found evidence that pointed towards someone’s romantic intentions.

Taken using Sony Xperia z5, loaned by Three UK.

The idea is that its a padlock which sweethearts lock to a bridge, fence, gate, or similar public fixture to symbolize their love. Typically the sweethearts’ names or initials are inscribed on the padlock, and its key is thrown away to symbolize unbreakable love. According to wikipedia anyway.

I first saw this sort of thing years ago in Florence, Italy.  I guess its happening more often in England now. I guess thats no bad thing.

I’ve put a couple more photos on the Andy Mackay Photography Facebook page.


#MySundayPhoto – Look at The Stars

This Friday, and it being the Friday after Bonfire night, we decided to go for a drive. We called it an “adventure” to find fireworks. The “adventure” didn’t disappoint, as we accidently found ourselves in a prime viewing location for what turned out, to be The Little Ones first professional firework display.

Once the scariness of the loud noises had passed (by shouting BOO lots), she was left with simply looking with awe at the exploding stars above her.

No I didn’t use a flash when I took this photo. 🙂


#MySundayPhoto – Bubbles and Celebrations


This weekend, we were lucky to be able to go along to a Naming Ceremony for our friends gorgeous daughter. It was a time of celebration, cake, a HUGE amount of balls in the ball pool, and bubbles.

Question. At what point in a childs life does the relationship end between celebrations and lots of bubbles?
