      1. That’s funny! I guess that’s what friends are for—helping us laugh at ourselves? My friends never let me forget the time I spilled chocolate milk all over my pink sweatshirt and white jeans in the 3rd grade. Ugh!


  1. I like the name you choose for your blog. I do refer to “Traveling Matt” and the “silly people” quite often. I will wander your writings and view your photos as I get to know you.


  2. Just looked through your Photostream on Flickr. Your photos are outstanding with such an amazing variety of subject choices. I don’t think you can really say your not a pro photographer – you just aren’t getting paid for it.

  3. I only Wish that, let the camera be with you, really, when you wanted to click one.
    It happens so, you wanted the best pic to be clicked and the cam is not with you.
    Click the Best Ones
    From You
    For the World. !!!

  5. Hello, lovely photographs, I am a researcher and lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire living in the Village I wonder if I might get hold of the photos so I can use them as examples of local cultures in my classes?
    I hope this is possible, I can give you a memory stick if you need one

    1. Hi Allan, tried to join the SHillington FB page to share the post but I’m still ‘pending’ πŸ˜€ saw your name and shots on there. Of course you may use them, I think the photo’s here can be right clicked and saved to your computer, or I can give you access to another album I have which will allow you to download the whole enchilada in one go. Do you mean just the Scarecrow photo’s or were you thinking of other bits too?


  6. Having a look around. My stepson went to university in Sunderland, and I have been to Whitley Bay a few times, but that was during the 1970s, with work.
    You camera kit sounds good. The XT-1 is a nice looking camera indeed, and polaroids are nicely retro. I have a lot of cameras, mostly unused. From the good old days of film, I have a Minolta Dynax 7, Praktica BMS, most of the Olympus capsule cameras, (XA-2 etc, ) and some collectibles, like an Exatkta. Digital cameras include my current Fuji X 30, a Fuji S5 Pro SLR (Nikon D200 with a different chip) and some smaller compacts. At one time, I took lots of photos, and owned three Canon SLR cameras, with a big assortment of lenses. Now, after a long gap, I have only just started to take some again, spurred on by the new Fuji.
    Your work here is first-rate, and I will now be following, to see more.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  7. Hooray, I’m your hundredth like on this page πŸ™‚ Thank you for always coming over and leaving thoughtful comments on your blog. It means so much to me, my blog being so early in its creation. After coming and seeing a few of your posts, I’d love to work some sort of collab with you. Perhaps you could choose one of your photos, and I’d freewrite an original piece of fiction based on it. Dealers choice of course πŸ˜‰ You could really push me out of my comfort zone! Anywho, I love your blog, and can’t wait to see more of your photos and trips out. I’m not much of a photographer myself, but I have a lifelong dream to travel Norway and Iceland with a camera and a backpack. The history and scenery is so beautiful there! Glad to meet an other UK dweller with a love of the north πŸ™‚
