Today was a beach day. We went to Hamble, and I took my camera. I’m going to go back at twilight one day and take photographs of the refinery at Fawley, across the water, all lit up.

Elliot enjoyed picking up enormous rocks and bits of concrete and lobbing them into the sea.

Giveaway – Canvas Print From Your Image 2 Canvas

YI2C giveaway

We love canvas prints in our house.  Ross and I had two of our favourite wedding photos blown up and printed on canvas as a wedding gift, and for Father’s Day a 3 years ago, I got Ruby to make hand prints on a little canvas, whilst I did Elliot’s four-month old feet, whilst he was sleeping, no less. 

OK, so that last one isn’t strictly a photo, but you get the idea. 

Your Image 2 Canvas contacted me last week, and asked if I’d like a canvas, and I knew of just the photo I wanted to use.  It arrived the very next day, and whilst I’d already decided I was going to give it to Ross as a Father’s Day gift, I couldn’t not have a peek.

I am so, so pleased with it.  The picture quality is fantastic, and the image is sharp and clear.  The image is wrapped really well around the frame, and really I cannot fault the service or the quality.  As you can see, Ross was pretty chuffed with it, too.  One very happy father on Father’s Day.
