Photography Challenge: Day 9-Someone I love

This is the man who stole my heart almost two years ago now.

Our story is going to sound very cliché, but nonetheless it is true.

You see, throughout my years growing up, from past experiences, I found it really hard to trust guys. I mean really hard. It was literally impossible.

My mind was filled with doubts and limitations to the relationships I had and so that always managed to affect my relationships in a negative way.

This man and I met August 14th 2012 in a bar for the first time.
I was attracted to his smile and his witty expressions, and the fact that he was really chatty helped, because I was so shy and trying not to come across as weird in any shape or form.

It took about a year for me to finally let him in, to finally be able to trust him with my life.

It may seem like a short time to some of you, but to me, it felt like an age.

Since then, we have been through a lot. The arguments and the ups and downs have been draining and stressful to say the very least.

But the fact that we have made it through up until now, the fact that we are still so in love, the fact that when we see each other, we are so physically close and so wrapped up in our own world of fun, and that we are so supportive of each others lifestyle, so respectful of each others boundaries and understanding of our emotions, makes it all worth while.

One day, I will marry this man.

If you have someone like this in your life, remember that no relationship is perfect and without the fights and the arguments, there would be no growth, no being able to work better with eachother, no improvement to the love you share.
After all, if you always stay the same, and nothing ever changes, wouldn’t it be so boring?

God bless
Stay positive


Photography Challenge: Day 6- Low angle shot

Here it is.
Day 6 of the photography challenge and we are going for the low angle shot.

I tried to get this as low as possible but nonetheless, I love this photo.
The colours really speak to me and believe it or not, this was not taken or edited to look black and white.

The good old natural English weather had that natural effect ready for me and it has worked really well here.

Hope you like it. Let me know what you think!

Photography Challenge: Day 5- A high angle shot

Where do I begin?

Without a doubt, this has been the toughest day of the challenge yet.
I have definitely struggled to find that ‘money’ shot.

The winner goes to a shot I took standing on top of a tree stump, looking downwards towards my feet.
I chose this one because when I look at it, my mind does a double take trying to figure out why it looks upside down.

Here are a few of the other photos I took on my quest to mastering the high angle shot.




Photography Challenge: Day 4- Something Green

I spent a lot of time racking my brains for something cool, something quirky, something creative to snap and publish on the photography challenge today.

Well, after a long car journey and some crappy photos, I went home.

I thought about arranging salad leaves into a sign that says ‘Green’.
My boyfriend suggested that I paint him green, so he can live his dream of becoming the hulk.

Later on, I went into the garden.
I was just casually trotting across the garden, walking around looking at the different plants when these two little daisies caught my eye.

I thought “huh, that’s a good shot”. I grabbed my camera and snapped it.
Out of all of the green photos I took, this is by far the best one.

So my hunt for something green wasn’t as adventurous as I’d hoped it would be but in the end, I came out with something much better, something that speaks to me, something that explains me.

It is simple, and that’s just the way I like it.

Photography Challenge: Day 3- Clouds

After a hot, clear blue sky kinda day yesterday, I was really hoping to capture a photo of an oddly shaped cloud today for the photography challenge.

When I was a little girl and even now sometimes, my little brother and I would just lay out on the grass, look up at the sky and point out funny shapes in the clouds.
We could find turtles, people, footballs, bananas and whatever else you can imagine.

However, I guess the sky isn’t really feeling it today.
The clouds have all bunched up trying to shield the sun from exposure.
Oh well, guess il have to postpone tanning until tomorrow.

Photography Challenge: Day 2- what I wore today

Il be honest.
I spent the best part of my day in gym clothes.
A Nike vest and some Elle cropped bottoms.
They’re comfortable and it means I ca work out whenever I feel like it 🙂

But evening is nigh on approaching.
I have just showered and changed into what would have been my day wear.

A long purple top and some black leggings.
Very casual and not at all bright and loud. Just plain and simple.

I would usually spend the evening at my boyfriends house hence the shower and change of clothes!

So, there it is. What I am wearing today. In one photo.
Not giving in yet.
