Beauty is everywhere if you are prepared to look for it. From everyday moments to the truly special, there is always something to make you stop, take a breath and admire.

She Called This Idyllic is a collection of images and thoughts about normal life in a beautiful world. 

"I used to dream of being a photographer when I was younger but somehow, like many people and their passions, life got in the way. I grew up and found other, more realistic ways of paying the bills. That was many years ago and I now have a full time job, a grown up family and a very normal life. I take photographs when and where I can and, when I feel that I have something to say, I also like to write. I don't pretend to be good at either, but as I get older I have realised that this doesn't matter. I like the idea of trying to be true to myself. This site is a new challenge for me and all content is purely for my own enjoyment. However, if anyone likes what they find here, I will be delighted."
