Nice little Brimstone butterfly (Gonepteryx rhamni) stopped by for a snack in the sun. Noticably fewer butterflies around this year. :(

I have to re-share this as +Danielle Tunstall deserves far more support. Please contribute and help a very deserving cause.

I have followed +Danielle Tunstall since her early appearance on Google+, some four years ago and I can think of no-one more deserving to be given a chance to develop their business. 

Danielle's work is creative and inspired and I only wish I could afford to give more and purchase more of her fantastic images. I love how she has inspired countless tattoos, book and magazine covers and offers to create images for up and coming bands.

Danielle's back story is both heart-breaking and courageous and although she probably has to sell cheap to support her family, I truly believe her work is massively under-valued and should sell for far more to reflect her genius.

DONATE NOW!!

To help fund Danielle and her photography, she is an amazing artist! An awesome photographer and a brilliant person! I was lucky enough to win a competition to have a shoot with her and I even got called back for another one, being a follower for years, to say I was a little star struck is an understatement!! As most fans know, her photos are her main source of income and sometimes the cost of prints can work out more than the income she gets. Wi...

Well that was kinda a depressing end to the weekend. Heard a sound in the garden and found a baby blackbird stunned after hitting the glass. It was alive for a few seconds but died in my hand, despite trying Birdy CPR for ages. :(

A rare visitor to my garden, a female (or possibly juvenile) Sparrowhawk. This is the moment she noticed a Pigeon fly past!

After flying off, it was strange how you noticed that all of the birds once again began chirping after hiding quietly. :)

+Andy Turp maybe, when you feel up, to it, you can take another dog. When you think it's about time, to have a new furry friend. I had the same empty feeling , when our dog before we had Nak, Flip died. A piece of my heart, died too .I wil never forget my friend Flip, he's in my heart, and soul, forever. Hang on, dear +Andy Turp​.
Maybe another dog, wil come your way, in time. 🐾🐾💖✌

Story
Tagline
An altruistic empath with a love of photography and nature.
Introduction
Born in Portchester, went to Manor House, Castle Junior and Portchester Community School.

Went to Cornwall School, Dortmund for A-levels, worked at Haslar, then for John Brown and lastly EMC Computers (UK) Ltd.

Becoming infatuated with G+ and photography and have been snapping with Minolta SLRs since I was 10. Usually nature, often birdlife, sunsets, all flora and fauna and now wanting to expand my horizons into macro, portrait and street photography. 

Looking for a good lottery win to release my spirit (or a generous benefactor!)

I felt compelled to write a review to counter Poppy's appalling one as I have been using this establishment for well over 20 years now and have never had nor seen an experience such as the one that was described. The atmosphere is always friendly and the whole shop behave as one big family, with many young employees learning their trade and going on to have successful careers or starting their own businesses. There is a core backbone of excellent hairdressers/barbers that have happily been there for many years and the waiting room is often well stocked with people waiting for their favourite, although all are equally capable. My entire family have been regular Customers and both my kids had their first haircuts here, accompanied by a lollypop reward afterwards. My little lad (now 17) has had a range of styles from mock-mohawks and close shaved crops to careful preservation of his now precious fringe. So, in summary, if you want a technically challenging, fancy style, ask them and I am sure they will give you their honest opinion and know their own limits and will advise accordingly. If you want a good, honest, family hairdressers to suit the entire family, go to PJ's and I don't think you will be disappointed. Just ask the generations of families and loyal customers that return week after week, year after year.

Not really a review but I have just found a letter that I wrote in 1978 when staying over on a school trip - Glad to see that you are still doing a fantastic job this many years on. Some great memories! :)
