Two posts in one month? I know, the world must be coming to an end, surely. This post won’t be long though, so I’ll get to the point. January is already coming to a close, and it only feels like I did my first post of the year only yesterday, when in reality I really didn’t.
The year has got off to a good start though, and as we near the end of the beginning of 2016, I just hope that all of us have managed to hit it off right as well. For those of us that haven’t however, remember that there’s more than enough time to make up for it. Hey, ask for a cake and maybe I’ll send one over to lift your spirits, you never know!
Hopefully I’ll remember I actually have a blog as well… Just maybe…
I won’t be shy. I’m not a fan of pets. There. I said it. I simply can’t cope with looking after pets for extended periods of time.
Considering that, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that when my sister was gifted a pair of Gerbils (one of which is the most energetic animal I’ve ever seen) for Christmas, I was quick to point out ot my family that I, under no circumstances, would not be taking part in the care of the new family members.

As we stare into the reflection of the baubel as it goes back into the box for another year, let’s be brutally honest. Most New Years resolutions are going to go to waste and be forgotten within the first seven days, and it’s been like that for some time. There’s just no point making them in my opinion, but it’s all because people don’t plan their changes out. It’s all well and good at 00:01 1st January 2016 saying ‘I’m going to be a better person this year’ or ‘I’ll lose weight this year’ if you have no idea how to achieve that goal, because all it’ll be is an empty promise to yourself that may be witnessed by others.

I’ve always wondered why we have this bonfire night thing in the UK. Sure, a plot was stopped to destroy the houses of parliament (if I’m remembering the history correctly), and the offender was killed. That’s all well and good. However, how many years on and it’s a national holiday that seems to begin weeks before the date’s even arrived? I could never understand it. Continue reading “5TH”
So I went on a short adventure. Over the last couple of days I’ve been hard at work touring Paris and taking in the sights with my cousin Curtis. We started the afternoon we arrived, making our moves shortly after settling in. Navigating the metro was easier than expected, and felt very similar to London in most aspects.
The sights and views the city has to offer are fantastic. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a city that can offer such breathtaking views and shots. Unfortunately the constant travelling that we did and the infernal stairs we had to climb took our breath away too. I’m not one for long monologues about my travels. I’ll let the audio and visuals do the talking. Be sure to check out my Instagram over the coming weeks though, I’ll be uploading regularly some shots that aren’t even on my Flickr!

Sometimes I look back on life and get myself into these little ruts.
Could I have done better? Should I have taken that opportunity? Would I be a different person if ‘xyz’ hadn’t happened? In a different reality did I take a different route in career choices?
It’s things like these that get me down sometimes, envisioning the person I could’ve been if I’d applied myslef more, if circumstances had been different for me.

Sometimes I wish that I could blend into society and not be noticed. Be part of the world without drawing attention to myself.
It was brought to the forefront of my mind yesterday, in fact. I was on a job taking photographs at an event as I do, and when the evening drew to a close thee was a short speech of thanks. Now, I’d been up front using my 50mm lens in order to get as much light as possible in the rather dark hall, so you can imagine how many people I’d distracted with my camera beeps and shutter sounds. It wasn’t a very nice feeling. Continue reading “Perception Filter”
