I mentioned in the last post that there was some new things in the pipeline for FurrieBoots Photies in 2015 and instagram is one of them.

I have started a profile which can be found here http://instagram.com/furriebootsphoties/ which I hope to use for sharing Sneak-Peaks and Behind the Scenes shots as well as the occasional “wow!” photos or throwbacks from my personal feed.

Here’s hoping I’ll remember which feed I’m posting from ūüôā

Have a good weekend!

Well for the wedding of Sarah and Tom, what else could I title this post! I’ve known Sarah for over 15 years from meeting up at Sports committee meetings at Robert Gordon University, where she was the VP for sports and I was the Archery president. She and Tom got together 14 years ago, just before my now husband and I got together and I thought that they would tie the knot before I did, but how wrong was I!? Nearly 5 and half years after my own wedding, Sarah and Tom finally made it official at the Buchan Braes Hotel¬†in Boddam. On the 30th of May, the day dawned a bit misty but with the prospect of the Haar being burned off, which it did and we got burnt along with it! Here is a sample of some of the pictures I took on that very sunny and happy day.


The Dress





Can you tell that Sarah’s favourite colour is Blue?


Tom and Duncan


Arrival of the Bride


In the Garden


The Kiss, it’s official now!


Obligatory Confetti Shot

As you can see, I had to contend with a lot of white and brilliant sunshine, how I wished for a bit of haze to help me out!


Blue and Games were the themes for the day


See told you Games were a theme of the day!

There were a variety of games for playing after dinner from Cash and Guns (with foam guns I may add, no bodies are hidden…) to Carcassonne, to Formula De¬†that 10 people could play. It was a great day all round, even though the extraction fan on the kitchen roof was running through most of the ceremony (which I forgot about until I saw a video of the ceremony) and we all caught a bit of sun and went a little pink. Thank you Sarah and Tom for asking me to be part of your day, it just wouldn’t have been the same as just as a guest (even though I would have been in more of the photos!) Will leave you with my favourite photo of the day, though it has been hard to choose, and remind you that if you would like to see more photos (and order some too ūüôā ) then please do not hesitate to contact me on the website¬†or facebook and I will send you the link and password to the gallery!


One of my favourites of the day.

So this last week has been a little different to the norm as I was only at work for 2 days! What a nice feeling. We were off for the husband’s birthday on Wednesday. It wasn’t a special (one that ends in zero) one so it was nice to just to be off and chill. We went out for food, then to the cinema to see The Bourne Legacy and then we ended up in an old haunt of¬†ours, the Siberian Vodka bar (But it has always been known as the Wodka Bar) where they have 39 different flavours of homemade vodka ūüôā

From top to bottom:-

Butterscotch, Strawberry, Mango and Cherry.

After a few low points in the week tempered with some high ones, the end of the week ended on a high (Thank Goodness!)

If I have been feeling low or have been thinking about one thing far too much, then a walk down the beach is really good for clearing my head so I headed down there on Friday evening. The weather had been really bad during the day, wet and wild and misty but by the end of the day it had cleared so I took a chance to go out to the beach and I was so pleased that I took the camera with me.

The tide was really quite low and it was nice to get right out on the beach for a slightly different viewpoint of the beach front.

There was a film of water on the sand, I’m not standing in the middle of the water!

It was so pretty out there, and there were some people who I wish were there to share it with me, they know how they are and why.

Here’s a couple more pictures from last night.

Hope that you have all had a good week, and for those that haven’t, here’s a hug from me. You deserve it!

So, this was a weekend of contrasts, cold and foggy with the haar hanging around like a bored teenager on Saturday. While the sun got his hat on and came out to play on Sunday.

I went out on Saturday evening to take some moody black & white shots, but the mist thinned out as I left the flat (typically!) but it didn’t deter me and so I got some¬†night-time¬†shots in.


Sunday started off hazy but the sun won the day and it was really summery, but yes, it is March! I went out to see what I could see for photo opportunities. I thought about going down to the beach but as I guessed, it was busy so decided to see if I could find any cherry blossom out.

I heard rumours (and seen a photo on Facebook) that it was out already but my usual models were being stubborn and were  not showing any sign of budding let alone flowering! Wonder if they were sulking after the brutal pruning they got last year?

I found the trees that were flowering near St.Mary’s¬†Cathedral¬†in the centre of town and was in the middle of taking pictures when I heard a screech that was not one of the seagulls that had been a racket as normal. I have heard this screaming before, not a little child who was not getting their way but it was a bird of prey, a peregrine.

She was a little far away to see clearly but this is what I managed to take.

And this was where she was (at least I think it was female)

It’s not the first time I have seen the peregrines out around Aberdeen and I am currently following their Manchester Cousins on Flickr and Twitter. As seen here¬†http://www.flickr.com/photos/mcrperegrines/¬†and¬†https://twitter.com/#!/mcrperegrines

Though if you want to see something closer to Aberdeen, there is the Peregrine watch up at Huntly were they have a hide with binoculars and a cctv and staff on hand to explain what is going on. More is explained here http://www.forestry.gov.uk/huntlyperegrines

So, it’s not just pigeons, seagulls and the neighbours’ cat that you can see in town, you just need to keep your eyes and ears open. What will you see???
