One fine day (or slightly drizzly day) while we were down in Exeter, Topher and Emma's grandparents took us to Dartmoor.
Emma and Luther
Topher and I
After the obligatory couple tourist shots, we decided to have a bit of childish fun. I've always been a fan of attempting to photograph movement - I even did an entire project about it during college where my friends happily volunteered to jump up and down for me - so I took the opportunity to get my friends to lunge at me wildly.
Topher, the bird without wings
Luther the victim of a zombie chase.
Emma the happy skipper.
Not to be left out, I handed the camera to Emma...
I call this my crazy lady pulled off stage pose - the only thing missing is the hook am I right? I think Topher and Emma's granddad definitely agrees!
After the childish antics (or in between I should say, we stopped to admire our surroundings. How gorgeous are these colours?
Aaand back to the childishness. I love this photo I took of Topher. We were trying to get a jumping shot but didn't notice the old ladies approaching. When I spotted them I told Topher to jump quickly and that is most likely why he has a look of terror on his face. Though I like to call this photo "man terrified of grannies".
This hobbit looks completely at home doesn't he?
Then we visited Widecombe where I got this lovely shot of Topher and Emma's grandma using a banana like a gun. Classic!
Finally, we headed back to Dartmoor where we proceeded to have the coldest picnic ever. How very British of us!
Considering I'm not much of an outdoor person, I had a great day! Are you a fan of the great outdoors?
