Blogging again?

It’s funny what drives me to write blog posts. Sometimes it’s inspiration, sometimes it’s annoyance about something, and sometimes it’s just having too much spare time on my hands. Today it’s the latter.  My first day of maternity leave, coming after a busy couple of weeks at work, finishing off reports and handing over projects…

31 (ish) days of sky

In January I decided to do another photo challenge, with one difference to previous ones I’ve done. I didn’t tell anyone I was doing it, mainly so I wouldn’t have to post every day or leave updates. This could have backfired on me and made me give up without encouragement, but actually I did see…

An alphabet of photos

I started writing this post shortly after I finished my November photo challenge. And then things got busy and I didn’t have time to finish it. But finally I’ve had a bit of spare time to edit it and publish it…. So I did it, I completed my month of photos – at least according…

No swimming

Time for another photo challenge…

As autumn arrives and the leaves fall and disappear, I need something creative to make me get out and about in the dark and cold. So once again I’m going to embark on a month of daily photos. I’ve done this quite a few times in the past and always found it to be creatively…

A month of photos – with a blue theme

As I mentioned here, I planned to spend the whole of March doing a daily photo challenge. I had chosen the theme “blue”, which some days did prove to be quite challenging. The only naturally occurring blue things in nature are the sky and flowers, and there are no blue foods (I did consider experimenting…

Penguin

Some of my favourite illustrators

I’m fortunate enough to have come into contact with a lot of amazing creative people through my participation in the 30 Day Challenge over the last few years. My creative outlet is photography, and my drawing skills are limited to sketching weird penguins, so I’m in awe of anyone who can actually draw! I thought…

A month of photos – March 2015

I’ve done a few photo challenges over the last couple of years. The idea is simple – one photo a day – either pick a theme or just choose to take photos of whatever inspires you. I haven’t done one for quite a while, and so during March, I’m going to take one photo a…

What kind of photography inspires you?

There are two photography exhibitions that I like to visit every year to get inspired and learn more about photography. These are the National Wildlife Photographer of the Year and the Landscape Photographer of the Year. This year I also decided to visit a portrait photography exhibition as well, the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize…

52 Creative Prompts: week 2

In my post 52 Creative Prompts I mentioned that I am posting a creative prompt every week for people to follow. The week 2 prompt was Sight/seeing/vision. Here is my creation: I had originally planned to only do photography, but I was inspired by something I was creating for this course, ReNew You 2014, run…

A month of green photos

Having enjoyed the April photo month, I decided to do another month in June, and was thrilled that lots of people decided to join me! I set my own theme as ‘green’, and a few people decided to do the same – others picked their own themes. I’m very excited that 12 people joined me…
