#MySundayPhoto – The Setting Sun in Prague

Due to a series of random events over the last week, I’ve found myself looking over an old memory card, amongst the memories I found this beautiful little moment. Taken by The Vltava river in Prague, many years ago…


Possibly one of my favourite sunsets. We must go back there one day…


Trying out the Sony Xperia Z5

We spent Boxing Day this year having a “second Christmas Day” with my parents who live in a cottage somewhere in mid-Devon. As I knew there would be different light levels within the cottage, rolling Devonshire fields around us, and general amount of Christmas, I figured I would bring the Sony Xperia Z5 out for a test drive.

These photos are mostly a result of “point and click”, with the only editing being HDR filtering on the little scarecrow.

A proper review is on its way one day!

#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. 🙂
