Making The Most Of It


It feels good to be writing a post that doesn't begin with "Film:" or "What I Did In". There's a reason this post doesn't start with either of those things. It's because this post isn't of photos from my film cameras and my touchscreen phone. This post is of photos from my Digital camera. And yes I still have it. But I'm sorry to say for what feels over a year its been collecting dust on my shelf. I've always said I didn't know why I stopped taking photos on it, well I do. It's because I got a smart phone. Now I've come away from the excitement of having something in my pocket that I can pull out and take photos with and upload them for the internet to see straight away, I've realised that actually, all the good moments I captured were always on my Nikon. All the little outings and adventures, or just sitting around with some friends all the way to exploring a new country. They were all taken on my Nikon and thats what I enjoyed using the most. Not to take away the love I have for my film cameras, they're special to me just the same. But I'm fed up of never taking photos or taking just 5 per adventure, that actually I never really use...

So the Nikon is back. Well for a few weeks that is and then me and Tom will be looking to go halves on a new DSLR. But I couldn't wait any longer, and although I feel as though I've lost my touch with capturing moments (maybe I haven't) I'm going to force myself to take it out with me more and more importantly, take it out of my bag!! 

Here are some pictures I took throughout Thursday and Friday. Thursday being the day I realised I wanted to use it more, and therefore appearing at Aggie's house exclaiming "I want to take photos all the time again" She agreed. Friday I had a morning in Penarth and since the weather was incredibly beautiful, we set out early for a walk. 

I know not a lot of people read this blog, and that's not whats important to me. Although thank you if you do :) This blog I realised more than anything is the platform I have grown up on. What I have used time and time again to express my feelings and shown, quite publicly, whoever wants to know, what I am doing. I love this blog more than anything and to me it reminds me of all the brilliant times I've had with many different people and that I have my camera to thank for all these memories. Photography is something I will always be passionate about. I may not have a style or have the drive to follow it through as a career, but it is something I will always consider incredibly important. Vital in fact, to really appreciate the life I have and the things I do and also the people I have around me to enjoy this great life with. 

Mega rant I know. It's really been a while since I've been able to write like this and I really do hope its the beginning of plenty more blog posts again, because I have massively missed this and actually it scares me how much I love and depend on this blog. So I just pray nothing ever happens to make this blog scratched from the surface of the world wide web. 

Lots of love to everyone.
And feel free to keep reading because I promise to make posts as frequently as I can!!

My 21st Celebrations

Well woop-di-doo I'm Twenty One. How very very exciting, I think?..

Since Saturday I've had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday. And I thought I'd share with you the photos I've been taking along the way. 

Saturday and Sunday, me and Tom were in London with Agnese for an event in Tobacco Dock (It was amazing obviously). 
Monday was my actual birthday which was spent with Tom receiving wonderful and useful gifts from all :) In the evening we went for a meal in Jamie's Italian. 
Tuesday I caught a cold lol
Wednesday me and Tom spent a day together walking and doing more travelling planning. Then in the evening my family and Tom and his parents all went for a meal in Cote Brasserie, which was more than lovely. 
And today Tom's in work and I'm back to work later which I'm kind of looking forward to, although I can't help but feel the lounge is going to be messy... 

So all and all I've had a wonderful birthday and now here are some pictures :)

What I Did In February

Halloo. Got a double shift today so just trying to get a few things done before I get back out into the hurricane and get blown to work... (It's so wiiindy) Hmm don't feel like writing much although I probably have a lot to say. Summer plans are coming together! Me and Tom bought a notebook yesterday to start putting all our travelling info into. Tomorrow we'll have a good morning together to start working on it! Also found out 5am this morning I'm going to Love Saves The Day!! A weekend festival in Bristol in May. We're only going for the Saturday but its made me so excited for summer and actually going out and doing things with people. Plans plans plans. So yep I'm feeling good. Also working my way still through the Bonobo line up which is in 2 weeks!!! Cannot frigging wait to just dance all day :D Listen to Nocturnal Sunshine atm which I didn't realise until a moment ago is actually Maya Jane Coles. Fun fact for you, but worth a check out nonetheless. Ok now I'm blabbering. I'll try post soon!!
