Monthly Roundup: April 2019

Time has flown these past few weeks, and I won’t lie to you, I’ve been away producing so much photography work that I’ve not published as much, also to account for going out more socially over the last few weeks which explains why I haven’t been publishing as much as I thought I would so I can only apologise.

I’ll quickly round up April, but expect the photo-sets for the mental health-inspired photography series to go up over the next few weeks, as this is my way of making up for lost time.

1.4.2019 – It was a beautiful start to the month considering it was sunny, breezy and beautiful outside and it was good to make the most of the warm weather.

5.4.2019 – AMP House was at its most beautiful and I couldn’t resist photographing the landmark in its full glory!

Before the clocks went forward at the end of March, I photographed the Lansdowne Co-Op Branch on one of the days it poured with rain and the reflection of the rain on the ground captured the store-front beautifully.

9.4.2019 – I couldn’t resist seizing the opportunity to photograph the wild rose that I spotted on the way to work.

After almost two months of keeping quiet about it, I got my first tattoos done on the 27th February, which I published a day prior to getting another tattoo.

14.4.2019 – The warm weather that is slowly returning gave me the early feels of Summer!

18.4.2019 – I witnessed the shrubby spurge of Spring as I made my way home from getting a few bits and pieces, and it happened to be my day off as well so why not?

The world did the 1, 2, Cha, Cha, Cha to Medellín as Madonna finally returned with her first single in four years, which comes as she is set to release her highly anticipated 14th Studio Album, Madame X, on the 14th June 2019!

21.4.2019 – The next tattoo I had healed after nearly two weeks and I gave full credit to my close friend, Heather, for designing the tattoo I wanted to have that paid tribute to the late music legend, Amy Winehouse, and Jakki of Harlequin Tattoos, as she took the design from the digital version Heather produced and tattooed it on to my left forearm.

25.4.2019 – The next subject I chose to photograph for the mental health-inspired photography series, The Concept of Expression, was my close friend, Roddy Stewart (a.k.a. SEVERE). It had been a while since my previous photo-set I produced back in January that featured my close friend, Nathan Andrew Christopher Brady, and this photo-set, although small, really captured Roddy’s facial expressions and real emotions in a more personal light.

Amidst the rain, there was light in nature’s corner! It’s amazing when the weather is just right and there’s a breeze in the air. There’s light in nature’s corner everywhere you go.

Thanks so much for a great month, everyone, and again, I sincerely apologise for not publishing as frequently as I originally promised this month, but I’ll definitely be getting back up to speed over the course of May as I will be making sure to put the next photo-sets I’ve produced up on the website.

Again, thanks so much, everyone, and I shall see you all in May!
