Our granddaughter, eating Upsy Daisy; 5 Apr 2014.

Upsy Daisy is one of the puppets in a BBC programme for young children – In the Night Garden.   Other characters include Iggle Piggle, the Ninky Nonk, Makka Pakka and the Haahoos. 

We find this wonderfully simple and calming TV, and I especially like the bit where, at the end of each programme, Iggle Piggle gets into his boat and, with a light on the prow, sets off across the sea as he goes to sleep.

D700 with 105mm Nikkor; 12,800 ISO; Dfine 2; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Warm Tone Paper preset.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    How sweet!

    Children’s programmes are great. When I visit the little man he watches a show called (I think) ‘Show Me, Show Me’. I love the songs 🙂

      Thank you! Such programmes can be entertaining – and also calming and relaxing, taking our minds off things. Another one I like is The WotWots – give it a try! A 🙂

    I like the idea of getting on a boat and leaving the world behind to go to sleep. I know one person in particular who would really benefit from doing that. 🙂

      And who’s the person … you??? You ought to have a look at these programmes. They are of course for toddlers, but they have a calm and simply purity which is very appealing – and the sequence at the end of each programme, with the boat making off out to sea, is simply wonderful. A 🙂

        No not me, I very seldom have a problem sleeping, just as well with my topsy-turvy working hours, although staying awake is quite often my problem, it’s Hubby who finds it difficult to turn off and relax. Maybe I’ll get him to watch a program or two. 🙂
