Nice Film Four

Another post as I promised!! More photos! More photos! I'm tired.. I woke up 5.30am this morning which was LATE as I had work at 6am. Jeez so early I know... I was only 5 minutes late miraculously so it wasn't too bad and they let me go home early, so this day hasn't been too much of a struggle but I can't help but feel weary in the eyes.
I'm looking outside and it looks like the sky is tempted to unleash rain :( I'm heading up to Penarth now for the rest of the day so I'm preparing myself to be soaked. I don't really know why I'm rambling on, I always feel the need to inform people of my day aha... 
Anyways here are some more snap shots from the South of France, enjoy!

Nice Film Three

Finally, finally! I have more films from the South of France developed. They're all so perfect. Even the ones I originally don't like so much, looking through them again I can't help but notice little things that make me fall in love with them. So picturesque, each image looks like it should be the front of a 'I Wish You Were Here' postcard.

I'm getting distracted, I should be scanning them in to put into this blog post but I can't help but write. Otherwise all these words are just wasted thoughts in my head. 

I do dearly miss the South of France.
The blue skies and blue waters.
Monaco - Musee Oceanographique
Le Parc Phoenix
This has to be my absolute favourite photo from this reel of film. I don't know why but to me its just so perfect!! The basket of flowers in the middle surrounded by more baskets of flowers.. the windows in the background revealing more plants. ITS SO AMAZING. I want to frame it or something more than just post it online or stick it in a photo album... 

I can't get over how amazing the minolta camera is. It captures light so perfectly and the colours are so crisp and real, nothing like what I was used to with the Diana Mini, this is SO MUCH BETTER!

I'm getting a bit over excited, this is what my life has come to since I don't seem to go out half as much anymore. Work and getting excited about my own photography... I think all these morning shifts in work have taken a toll on my energy to go out for a night. Saying that next weekend is due to be a big'un. Mutiny in Motion (if you remember I went to a similar event in January) on the Friday and then on the Saturday, also in Bristol is St Pauls Carnival, which is meant to be a very very good street festival thing going on throughout the day. Exciting!! I'm hoping the weather will be nice so I can take vibrant colourful photos.

I have Nice Film Four ready to post on here so look out!!

Taff Trail Adventures (Castell Coch)

Yesterday me and Tom decided to jump on the bikes and cycle as far as we could along the Taff Trail. We managed to get as far as Castell Coch, which is something around a 25 mile cycle! Although the climb up to the castle was pretty brutal. 
After reaching the castle we cycled back down and went to grab some food just as it started raining. Pouring down really. The cycle home was fun and quick, until Tom skidded on some stoney pathway and cut up all his leg aha! We finally made it to Cardiff Central and from there we caught a train back to Penarth.
Muddy and bloody legs!
I love cycling, we were out for 4 hours yesterday and it didn't even feel like we had been cycling that long! We'll definitely have to try and go further next time. BUT, did I tell you my bike got stolen?!?! From right outside my work!! Whilst I was working!! It was locked up and everything. Just goes to show the kind of world we live in :( It made me so upset though. I'm not sure when I'll be getting a new bike, but I miss cycling already. I now have to walk back and forth to work *sigh*.. 

The sunny weather has left already as well. Its meant to be raining for the next few days which is poo.. Hopefully it won't be raining for Mutiny or St Pauls Carnival which is NEXT WEEKEND!!! I'm so excited! We just need to sort out accommodation and then the weekend will be set. I can't wait to take photos of it all! 
I'll keep you updated

Photos were taken on my Nikon and also Samsung Galaxy S2
