Having been glued to 'The British Bake Off' TV series like many, I have created a homage of an affordable collection of prints that can be personalised for Christmas gifts.

As many of you know by know I'm a great fan of Woody Allen movies, so much so our cat is called Woody!
Last night we went to see Blue Jasmine, Woody Allen latest movie and all I can say is that I highly recommend it! The movie plot and the all the cast was outstanding but Cate Blanchett was amazing as Jasmine and I wouldn't be surprised if she is nominated for an oscar for the role.
I love Woody Allens movies as he doesn't need to spend big bucks with special effects, car chasing or violence..just good old fashioned story telling with interesting and complex characters that whisk you away for a good couple of hours to another world.

Hello my dear friends. It has been a long time since I wrote in my little journal, but life seems to get busier and busier somehow!
I'm back from an amazing week in Italy editing images in the studio, which I shall post here soon! In the meantime I hope you all have a lovely weekend, with Halloween witches and monsters or not.. :-)

The Photo Man from Ben Kitnick on Vimeo.
I hope you all had a great weekend. Here in England Autumn is showing its first signs already!
For those that love photography and a sweet story, I thought I'd share this short video of the Photo Man by Ben Kitnick. I might be very sentimental as towards the end I shed a couple of tears...

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend wherever you are reading this in our little planet. For some August means vacation so I wish you the best of times! I'm away for a couple of days in the Suffolk coast, which I highly recommend! ;-)

Today I have been updating my 'about ' pages in all my websites which also includes an image of my studio. This is a little peak into my workspace where I usually sit and write my blog, edit photos and write emails to some of you out there.
There is a window on the left which I usually leave open to hear the birds melodies come through which I find very relaxing when I need a quiet time to reflect on errands. Various radio stations also filter through the day from Buenos Aires, Barcelona and UK and my collection of ITunes soundtracks when I need inspiration.
Above in the shelves is a collection of my diaries, ideas and sketch books. Bellow on the wall images is an eclectic mix of photographs; inspirational images, Woody Allen, childhood memories and some of my travel images from South Africa and Buenos Aires. Also a photograph of my father sits there as it is the closest I can have him since he passed away. I use the mug from NY everyday when I have my coffee to remind me I did visit the city and it wasn't all a dream!

*Had a drink at my old pub in Notting Hill with good old Alex that is over visiting from NY
*Laughed tons reminiscing old times with good friends over Pimm's

Last Sunday it was my lovely friend Jenny's 30th birthday and I was very flattered when she asked me to bake a couple of my 'signature' cakes for her party! Lemon tart and carrot cake, which I think I must have baked about five times this month for various BBQ's and friends dinner parties!
We had a great time chilling with friends' in the sunshine sipping cold wine with lots of laughter and fabulous food cooked mainly by her adoring husband, Ben.
Sweet summertime memories :-)

Yesterday afternoon I had the pleasure of shooting photos of our friends Jane and Alex's lovely daughters in the garden. We had great fun playing around with different outfits and looks and the girls were real star models! You can see more of the images in my website here

Summer temperatures haven't hit here in the UK so I've been reminiscing of my summer times in Barcelona in our family holiday home sitting by the pool sipping Gazpacho (cold tomato soup) made by my mother or Nona. This lunchtime i had to make some for old times sake even if it meant having lunch in our cloudy and coldish garden!
