I have a treat for you today, another instalment of Photos of Cornwall for you to enjoy! This time it’s the lovely Nick from The Picture Parlour in Boscastle, Cornwall. As usual I sent him a small list of questions and asked very nicely for some of his photography to show off to you.

Naughty Nemo – The Picture Parlour

I have to say my favourite is definitely Naughty Nemo, he’s gorgeous and does seem to have a naughty twinkle in his eye! I am also in awe of anyone who ever attempts to run a marathon, let alone complete one more than once!

The Picture Parlour is in Boscastle (Cornwall in case you hadn’t guessed!) in the harbour area of the village, and they also have their own Picture Parlour Website where you can check their location, opening hours and see some of the artists whose work you can buy from them.

    Fabulous photos Stevie. Nick is obviously very talented. Cornwall is so photogenic and even us photographers who don’t know what on earth an Fstop is can’t fail to take a half decent photo of your beautiful country. But it’s the pro’s that can really show it off by knowing how to capture amazing and beautiful images. xx

      He definitely is Bree! I have to confess to usually ending up using my phone camera as I actually know what to do with that one, I would love t learn a bit more about photography…but as with most things I really need to find the time!

      Oops! I meant county, although some would say Cornwall should be independent:-)
