Some sunny and cheery photos for this dismal and grey January, and something to plan for the summer; a day trip to Ascot! One of my regular clients is Ascot through agency RPM Photographic, for whom I cover various events and food photography. I get to dress up and spend the day wandering through the crowds at the summer race days taking pictures of cute kids, magnificent horses, gorgeous girls and boys in their finest and... the queen! She arrived with such little drumroll into the winners enclosure that I virtually had to be pulled out of her path by my colleague.
If you have children, the kids day is brilliant. All the rides and entertainments are free once you are into the grounds and there is so much for them to do.
