As is typical of an August bank holiday the weather was appalling. Monday did manage to let up on the rain at least and so I walked down to the London Wetland Centre to get some fresh air and get the lens out.
It’s rare that a bank holiday brings with it so much sunshine but as this weekend was glorious it was a perfect chance to get out and take the camera to Bushy Park, London.
It was 27 degrees and even the deer decided it was too hot so took a dip in a small stream. They even had the odd splash fight!
Richmond Park, London
I hadn’t been out to take photos for a long time and I wanted to make the most of the autumnal colours before they disappear so today I took the bus to Richmond Park.
It’s pretty amazing to feel like you are in the middle of the woods when actually you are in one of the busiest cities in the world.
In typical British fashion the sky was dull and grey as storm Brian causes havoc but I think I still got a few good shots.
Most of the deer would not stay still as it is mating season (and they really wanted to make those babies!) but luckily I found the guy above just chilling with a crow.
Yesterday was International Cat Day and as I happen to have two gorgeous kitties of my own I thought I would share a couple of photos. Everyone who has pets knows how hard it is to get a decent photo of them! I often try to practise by taking photos of them but I always end up with hundreds of blurred shots!
Wimbledon Common, London
This weekend I decided to take my camera out for some much needed practice. I have recently moved to London so I decided to check out one of my local parks, Wimbledon Common.
When people think of London they often just think of crowds of tourists and building after building but actually there is a lot of green to be found. This park is so big that I did get a bit lost…
My favourite shot is of a bee collecting pollen. I was really lucky to get this shot as I only managed a couple of clicks before it flew off. Sometimes all you need is a bit of luck.
Majorelle Garden, Marrakesh
So this is my very first blog post ever. As a 28 year old who works in media I’m amazed I have avoided it for this long!
I have been taking photos ever since I was little. I loved the anticipation that came with waiting for the film to be developed and the elation that followed when you got the photo you wanted.
I am not a photographer and I have a very long way to go before I can call myself one. I wanted to display my photos that I am proud of to motivate me and help me on my journey of improvement.
