A Beautifully Baked Bank Holiday!

Whilst making the most of the Bank Holiday with this wonderful weather, I seized the opportunity whilst I was on my way to see Avengers: Infinity War to photograph some more plants and flowers, whilst experimenting with the exposure of the photographs I produced.

You can imagine because I decided to, again, walk rather than get onboard a bus, I did catch the sun, but it was worth it considering that it was a Bank Holiday worth seizing the opportunity and getting out and enjoying the sun for.

Below is the huge collection of photographs I produced that documented the wonderfully baked Bank Holiday weather.

I absolutely enjoyed this sunny weather and it was safe to say that I made the most of the Bank Holiday weather and with Summer on the way, it’s safe to say I will be making sure to ditch the coat more often if we are going to have more of this wonderful sunny weather over the next few weeks.

Did you enjoy this wonderful Bank Holiday weather? Please tell me as I would love to hear how you made the most of your Bank Holiday while the wonderful weather was here.

Welcome to April!

Welcome to April! As the days begin to get brighter over the next few weeks and the days lasting longer, it’s safe to say that the next few weeks will not only be busier, but the time will be a little slower than usual.

As the weather is set to improve over the next few weeks, make sure you wrap up warm if the Beast from the East returns as there is a possible chance of snow, but hopefully, if we do suddenly get a blanket of snow, hopefully the wintry weather shouldn’t last too long considering that Spring is here and the warm weather is slowly but surely returning.

As there are a very busy couple of weeks ahead, it’s safe to say I won’t be publishing as much due to work, but I’ll be trying to find the time now and then over the next few weeks to see if I can publish some articles when I get the free time available. On the plus side, as Summer is approaching, it’s safe to say that the time will fly and it will be a lot warmer than last year.

Until then, Welcome to April and have a Happy Easter!

CROYDON / Thursday 15th December 2016

As I will be starting a self-directed photography project in 2017, I have decided to share with you all a small photographic collection I took of Croydon whilst I was at Croydon College yesterday before falling sick to a sore throat and cold, keeping in mind that my work for the past few projects were all submitted on Monday.

The reason I chose to create a cut-throat style kind of text in the name, Croydon, is because I want you to see Croydon as being a community that is divided, where some values are more or less stripped or tarnished of all credibility despite Croydon taking centre-stage when good things come out of it.

How do I see landscape photography in Croydon? I see landscape photography in Croydon as an opportunity for me to take photos of the landmarks, including the shops that surround me.

Landscapes interest me, as I am fascinated by how certain objects are positioned depending on the place. For example, I love nature, but I love to know how a plant blossoms in a certain location. The same idea can consist of a landmark, for example, the Lloyds Bank opposite BOXPARK CROYDON stands out instantly as it is a larger building that you cannot exactly miss from a distance.

Overall, I am really pleased I used the Camera+ app (recommended) to take these photos, as they came out a lot better than I expected.

If you liked my small photo collection of Croydon, please let me know by commenting below your feedback. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
