Easter Weekend Mini Break!

Hey, we are back from our little break over the Easter weekend. We popped down to Romney Marsh Good Friday and stayed over for a couple of nights in a really cute little cottage called The Stable. It was in a very quiet location with glorious views from the bedroom across open fields. We did … Continue reading “Easter Weekend Mini Break!”

Another week over…

Here we are at Friday again. This week has flown by, which is good in a way but scary in another how quickly time is passing by.  My 50th birthday is fast approaching – how the hell can I be 50?! My parents always used to say time will pass quicker the older you get … Continue reading “Another week over…”

Cheeky Mid Week Sunset Shoot

Well, almost mid-week. Thursday I shut down the work laptop, grabbed our camera bags and picked Jon up straight from work so we could go get ourselves a sunset on camera. The weather had been lovely and, having kept all our fingers and toes crossed all day (made work challenging!) the weather held for us … Continue reading “Cheeky Mid Week Sunset Shoot”

Well the sunrises are getting earlier and earlier which means soon Jon and I will not be getting up to take them! At the moment it isn’t too bad getting up for a local shot in Thanet.

The Canon 80-200mm f2.8L Magic Drainpipe

The Canon 80-200 f2.8 L is a golden oldie, production having stopped on this lens back in 1995!  I bought this lens in 2013 as it was a steal on Ebay for around £360 if i remember correctly. I haven’t really ever used it and it keeps getting lost in the cupboard. The only time … Continue reading “The Canon 80-200mm f2.8L Magic Drainpipe”

New Year, New Project – Planet Thanet!

Well, I think we mentioned a new project in our first post in this blog. Today we made a start. We want to produce a book of our photos but we also wanted a fresh start and fresh photos to work with rather than revisiting old shots. So we were up fairly early as we wanted … Continue reading “New Year, New Project – Planet Thanet!”

Welcome to J2images -our new photography blog!

Hi!  Welcome to our new blog site. Jon and I are a married couple who got into photography back in 2010 and have been completely hooked ever since.
