Bleinheim 121So despite living in Oxfordshire for more than 5 years I’ve never visited Bleinheim palace, this was righted at the weekend when we took a trip with James boss and his lovely girlfriend.

  • No def not any kind of pro photographer (most of the time I either accidentally leave it at home or take it and then find out its run out of batteries!) I am also rubbish at getting the landscapy ones level, just look at the first one! The butterflies were lovely to take photos of though, such beautiful colours!
