A Few Changes To Be Made…

Hi everyone!

I’ve been thinking about my blog for awhile, knowing that I need to adapt it to my interests and what I am up to so I have decided to make a few changes.

Firstly, I am going to change this to a purely photographic blog. I intended it originally to be everything creative but to be honest, photography is slowly stealing my heart and I plan to follow it. Occasionally I might put up some drawings or artwork I have done but the main content will be my photos.

Secondly is the ‘issue’ of my 365. Some of my photos, I really don’t like. I don’t feel like I should be putting them up here where I only want to publicise my best work. Therefore, from now on I will just show you all what I want to show. I’ll keep links to my dA and my Flickr in the description page of the blog if you want to look into more of my work but I feel the best way to put myself out there is showing what I am proud of!

Sorry for writing so much – a bit of an admin post!

Following in this fashion, this is a photo from this week that I do particularly like :]

Day Ninety Five.

That is all for today – goodbye for now, but not for long!

Autumn – a fairy tale.

Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess who kept the flowers bright and the birds singing in their trees. The villagers locked her in a castle so that they may never had to live without the song of the lark or the abundance of beautiful flowers and there she stayed for many years.

But the princess was unhappy in her tower, and one early morning, as the lark cried out its freedom, the princess escaped from her confinement and left the castle to wander the trees.

As she walked, the further she trod from the castle, she saw the leaves began to change in colour, falling softly to the floor around her. There were colours that the princess had never seen before, rich hues of blood and chestnut and aging.

 

The villagers began to rise for the day and one by one discovered the change to their world. Cold nipped at the hems of linen dresses and the wind tugged at their hair as a crowd gathered to watch the princess walk around the castle.

The princess felt as though a great sigh had been breathed by the forest, and tension ebbed away from the exhausted trees as they finally gave in to their long awaited slumbers.

The people looked around, and slowly, slowly, realised what had happened. Slowly, slowly, they saw what the princess saw. Their eyes feasted upon the deep reds and oranges all around them, and they realised that this was even more beautiful. More beautiful than anything they had tried to preserve.

And the princess smiled, and lay back on the sodden grass to look up at the falling leaves. She was free.

365: Week 11

Hello there lovely people of WordPress :]

Here are this weeks 365 photos. I am worried that some people are going to start finding this blog very repetitive so I am going to try and put up some more interesting posts over the next few weeks!

I have started using Instagram loads lately – I love it! It makes taking my daily photo so much easier. I think from now on you are going to find much more of a mix between my phone camera and my dslr.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks for looking guys! I’m hoping to have something pretty cool for you soon!

An Unfortunate Series of Events.

This was something I did this evening for today’s 365, but obviously only used one photo (the middle one).

In between taking that one I came up with a sort of series of events for the little bread couple.

Hope you like them, I really do apologise about each photo being edited differently – at the moment they don’t look like a set colourwise, but that is definitely something I need to work on.

A Weekend In Cardiff.

Ben came down to me this weekend in Cardiff, which was a great opportunity for me to walk around as though I was a tourist too…

I picked him up on Friday night and we took loads of pictures of the stunning Royal Welsh School of Music.

It’s so photogenic at night! 

In the morning we woke up, had Coco Pops and went down to Cardiff Town! My mission was to explore the shopping areas and actually learn where I was going in the town centre… Our first stop was Queen’s shopping centre. I couldn’t help taking a picture of the glass ceiling looking very attractive in the sun – I love sunny days!

Next on the agenda was exploring some of the old Victorian Arcades, and we found my favourite shop of the day. I have always loved book shops – they remind me of old copies of Jane Eyre and nights under covers reading until dawn.
Check out what we found!!

I have to admit it was love at first sight. There are literally books going up to the ceiling. What’s more this continues into an upper floor filled with sci-fi and horror books and then a basement filled with War books and very very old volumes in Welsh. I wished I lived in this shop.

After all the walking we had done thus far we bought an amazing marshmallow tower cupcake from Cardiff Market (NB – Go there.) and finally lay down in the cold autumn air on some crackling leaves and closed our eyes.

Finally, after a brilliant night of watching The Holiday and cooking sausage sandwiches Ben had to go back home. Cardiff Bus station is going to hold so many memories by the end of this year.

 

Until next time x

365: Week 10

This week has been full of ups and downs. Uni isn’t going so well, and to be honest I wish with all my heart that  I was taking Photography or Graphic design – but there we go. I’ve made my choice and I’m going to make myself stick with it.
