I went on a trip to Austria a few days ago and had an amazing time :] Here are some photos, I hope you enjoy them!




365: Week One

Hi everyone :] Sorry for being so quiet on here recently! I have officially started my 365 project and my plan at the moment is to update my blog followers at the end of every week with the images I have taken since my last post instead of updating it everyday.

So, today’s post features all my photos since Wednesday including today’s :] I hope you enjoy them!

Day 1

Day 2

Day 3

Day 4

If you are interested in my project and would like to read some of the stories behind my photographs I post them with text, everyday, on Flickr. Just click here to see more!

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend :]



Hi everyone :]

Recently I’ve been really keen to take more pictures and do more with photography than I have before. I’ve just fallen in love with it completely so I’ve made a decision (I think!) to do something with it.

Next week when I’m back from my holiday I am going to start a 365 photography project!

For those that don’t know this is a project where you take a picture everyday for a year and upload it for followers or others to see. They can have themes but because I don’t yet know what I enjoy the most or what I’m especially good at I am going to make mine very general and use it as a force to explore areas of photography that I may otherwise not try – I can’t wait!!!


So, I’m going to start next Wednesday (fingers crossed) – follow if you would like to see what I come up with!


Sorry for the lack of photos today, but I’ll try to make up for it ;]


Evening, all! x

Thank You

Hi everyone!

This is a quick post to say thank you to everyone who has started to follow my blog and who is interested in what I’ve been posting here!  It’s so encouraging and exciting for me and it’s been a really big motivator too.

Feels like things are taking a very good turn and I’ve recently been getting a lot more joy out of photography than I ever have before. I have a load of photography books on Amazon ready to buy and a tripod too. I’ve never had one but I feel like it is the next progressive step so that I can try some long exposure shots and also some moving GIFs too. They look like a lot of fun!

Also, I’m going to Austria for a few days so I’m hoping to get some amazing photos there too, it’s right in the mountains and I can’t wait to get my camera out. I’m hoping to spend the rest of my summer with my camera incessantly. I’d like to start saving for a new lens and maybe an upgrade in a few years to the next series but there’s no point doing that if I don’t fully understand or exhaust the capabilities on my current camera :]

Anyway, enough rambling :] Hope everyone is having a lovely week and it’s not as rainy where you are as it is here!!

Daily Deviation

Hi everyone! Exciting day today because my work has been featured on deviantArt! To people who don’t have deviantArt this probably won’t mean a lot to you but I will try to explain, as a newbie to the site I don’t even understand it all that well myself…

A DailyDeviation is a piece of work that is nomitated to site admins or volunteers who decide that it is good enough to be featured within its category.

Mine was in the ‘stock and resources’ category :]

What is super exciting is that the stats for the photo (as this post is published) stand
Views: 594  1, 267 4,285
Favourites: 82 181 617
Downloads: 38 81 237
and those are pretty big HUGE numbers!!! 😀

I am seriously over the moon! If you’d like to see this photo on deviantArt then click here 😀

Well, have a great day and I’m sure I’ll be back with something soon enough :]

Another photo from my visit to the organic gardens which I forgot to post in A Wander In The Gardens :] I quite liked the concept :]

Also, thank you so so much everyone for all the activity on my blog over the last 24 hours or so!! I have so many likes on A Wander In The Gardens and two new followers too which is mega exciting!

I know a lot of people who bug friends for views on their blogs but I think the fun of it for me is that when someone likes something or follows me it’s because they genuinely like my work and that means a lot :]

Enough of that! Have a great Thursday and I’ll be back soon with some more things to post 😀

Good Luck!

So my lovely boyfriend has his Grade 8 Orchestral Percussion exam this week and because he keeps bugging me to do a desktop wallpaper for him I decided to multi-task :]

This is his good luck wallpaper! Had a bit of a play with the typography too as you can tell :] It started as a doodle but I just kept expanding and came up with this!

This might also be a good time to mention that I have another place where I post all my photos and artwork! DeviantArt!! It’s such a great website.
Except, it’s more of a community than a website and everyone on there is so supportive of your work which is lovely :]

So if anyone reading this has a dA account, or is just curious, check out my page and let me know what you think :]
