A few weeks ago I spent some time in Brighton. Typically it was over the few days during the heatwave when it rained. The best bits of the trip were attacking the 2p machines on the pier and going to see An Audience with Brian Blessed. The latter was amazing and you should definitely go to see it.
If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll know that I recently spent just over a week in Paris. It’s the first time I’ve been in 13 years so it was nice to see a few places again.
I’m super proud to have one of my photos featured by Apple as part of their ‘A Color of Celebration’ collection. It’s a photo I took during a fireworks display back in November.
This is the most expensive bag I’ve ever bought. It also looks a bit nice too.
This is the Everyday Messenger Bag from Peak Design. Previously, I’d bought their wrist straps for my cameras (and I don’t think I’ll ever buy any other type – so convenient), but this bag intrigued me.
Dangling in the air, sat inside a cable cart crossing the river Thames. It’s windy and the cabin is rocking from side to side. I’m usually okay with heights, apart from the weird faces I pull whilst sitting in a plane that’s taking off.
On this occasion, as the cart rocks from side-to-side on a single cable, I’m left reminded of this facial expression and do my best to conceal it. Luckily the people sat opposite are on a FaceTime call (public video calls in London are a thing now, apparently).
Since late 2009 I’ve been using a Canon 600D as my main camera. I’m by no means a professional photographer and I’m not trying to be. Photography is fun. I’m the kind of person who needs a focus when going out for walks or going on holiday. Photography gives me that focus I need.
I’ve been shopping around for a good camera backpack for a while now. I tend to take a lot of stuff around with me when out taking photos, including my iPad and recently acquired USB charger.
