Better known locally as 31 Corn street, had it's VIP opening night party last night and the 365Bristol.com team were there to check it out and sample the wares.
The food and drink were superb and served at the table by very friendly and talkative waiting staff, The decor is quite spectacular with lots of lovely old paintings adorning the walls and the most amazing wood and mirrored bar area that is 100% unique, the tables were beautifully lit by candles in china cups and saucers the original features of the building have been left and with the wonderfully ornate ceiling carvings the whole bar almost looks like a Victorian tea room, this makes it feel so relaxed.
It is also dog friendly, something that is of vital importance these day's with so many people wanting to take their dogs everywhere with them.
The promotion decider game and also the last game Bristol rugby played at their home ground of 93 years, the Memorial ground. It was a very wet night the rain hadn't let up all day but this did not stop the ground being filled to it's 12,000 capacity
Sadly Bristol lost 20 - 21. There were lots of cheers and tears, and the atmosphere was electric right to the end.
Well done Bris who next year will be playing at their new home Ashton gate.
So today was Gundog day at Bath Champ show, I was there to photo some lovely Weimaraner's and catch up with some friends, I had a wonderful day even the weather was awful and it rained all day long, I even managed to pick up lovely pair of Weimaraner cufflinks for Mr H, he's been looking for a while.
If you are planning on attending tomorrow please be aware that the carpark is a bog and even I had to be helped out in my car by two lovely young men,
So those people that know me know I'm a huge supporter of Bristol Rugby club, I used to work for the club, but before that I was a supporter and I am still a supporter to this day, currently they have a twitter campaign creating MEMories the club is on the brink of getting back into the premiership and are also now leaving their spiritual home the Memorial ground,
For this campaign they have supplied free scarves to their supporters and have asked them to post photo's to twitter with the hashtag #imbackingbris
Jackson, Bella and I are all showing our support C'mon Bris!
Well it's that time of year again when our woodlands are filled with the glorious colour of bluebells, sadly it's only for a short time, but it's nice to take the opportunity to get some lovely portrait photo's of your pets while they're here.
Over the last few days Bristol's very own world famous Graffiti artist Banksy has been back in the West Country, he has left a piece near GCHQ in Cheltenham and now has left a piece by the Riverside Youth Project in Bristol, I was able to go along see it and Photograph it before it was removed and taken inside the club where you can still view it for a small donation.
So I've been a photographer for a long time, but it's good to head back to the classroom and learn from others and get a bit of practice every now and then.
this time it was a Gundog photography course with Alan Ward of Country field images a very talented and knowledgeable photographer.
Also I don't often get the chance to photograph Spaniels, I mostly see HPR's so it was wonderful to photograph a different working breed.
I got to spend a very fun couple of hours with this great trio of Dogue De Bordeaux, Frankie, Bronson and Winnie
Some of you may have heard of the sudden, tragic and very sad death of little Freddie Hussey, a lovely 3 year old Rugby loving little boy.
In his memory a charity rugby game was organised between Broad plain rugby club and the Impact/Bristol Barbarians to raise money for the Wallace and Gromit appeal, I was honoured to photograph the game
So Crufts has been and gone for another year, and I was there to photograph the Weimarnaners, as ever there were some stunning examples of the breed and their owners and handlers all had a great day.
Here are a few of my images from the day as well as the collage I made up for the Weimaraner Club of Great Britain.
