Describe your perfect day
It's late summer. Waken around 10. Up and at 'em and out with the camera into a car with a full tank. Pick up significant other and head south in the car. Stop in Belfast at Doorsteps on the Lisburn Road for a sandwich. Wander the town taking pictures on a sunny day. Beatrice Kennedy's for dinner. Then the Crown Bar while the sun goes down outside. Malmaison for a nightcap and then bed.

Lastly, some linky goodness, link to your shop, blog, facebook, twitter etc etc.
