Saturday Steps.... and the Magazine is?

Now if you read the May issue of The Tess, she told you I was going to be in a magazine, well it dropped through the letter box yesterday.

Its The National Trust Magazine!! 

 I sent in a write up about my favorite National Trust place
Attingham Park  for their page "Reader's Snapshot"
Regular readers of my blog will know I have done quite a lot of blog posts about my walks there.

Hang on, I just want to read it.
 So if you don't mind I'll let you take a look at some photos Mom took last Saturday when we went for a visit, Tess was tired after her swim so she was sleeping it off at home.

Mom borrowed  a 75-300 lens to try out

I think she likes it!

Thank You National Trust for publishing a write up from a dogs point of view

 I'm also going to give
My 4 Paws up Award for being so dog friendly.

Don't forget you can join me on Saturday Steps, just send an email with a little about yourself and a photo of you on steps to
I will return an email letting you know which week you will be here with me.

Have a good week
See Yea George xxx

Lovely photographs!
I've got a 75-200 lens and I LOVE the pictures it takes, but it sure isn't convenient to carry around when I am trying to walk two dogs on leash!

Your photos today are lovely and much congratulations for getting published in that magazine! It looks like your dad is a funny guy who thought you needed an extra set of ears!

Congratulations on being in the National Trust Magazine, George! :)

We really love your Mom's photos ... so beautiful.

CherryPie said...

Congratulations, I shall look out for that when my copy comes through the door.

I was in Attingham last Saturday too, I didn't get chance to do the bluebell walk so I need to go back to see them.

Cranberry Morning said...

Looks like an issue of the National Trust Magazine that I'd like to see! Thank you for your helpful advice re. cameras, George. You're one smart cookie! (dog cookie, that is)♥
I love Mom's photos with that new lens. I wonder if I can get closeup shots with the faded background using a Nikon Cookpix P510 or if I'd have to go with the Nikon D3100. Don't worry, George, I'll read those reviews and keep all your advice in mind. Thanks for helping me out!

WFT Nobby said...

We are well impressed. Very classy indeed George.
Gail is a member of the National Trust for Scotland so we don't see the English magazine. But we are sure your snapshot would be the best thing in this month's edition.
Toodle pip!

Beautiful photos your Mom took with that lens! So, can she keep borrowing that one so she doesn't have to fork out the green papers to buy one of her own? ;)

Well done on getting your article in print & and getting you face in the magazine too George.
Tell your Mom that she has another great collection of quality photos with her lens.
The camera deal I got 16 months ago came with a zoom lens ... that unfortunately I still have to use. I must take the "non portable !" camera bag out with me ... for a change, sometime soon !!!
