Battersea Park / Revisited / 13.4.2017

As it has been four years since I last visited Battersea Park, it is safe to say that not a lot hasn’t changed since my last visit.

The weather was absolutely lovely; the scenery gave me a sense of relaxation because it is a place to relax and unwind.

Whilst me and my family were at Battersea Park, we played a game of cricket, and twice in one day, two dogs grabbed the tennis balls we were using, though two of the tennis balls were knackered after a couple of whacks with the cricket bat, but it was good for us all to get out and enjoy ourselves while the two-week holiday lasts.

It’s hard to think it was four years ago that I last visited Battersea Park. Where has the time gone? I still find it hard to believe that I was just about to sit my final year at Oasis Academy: Shirley Park and 4 years down the line, I am sitting the last few months of my UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma Film & Photography Course at Croydon College. That’s quite scary knowing just how fast the time has flown, because it only felt like yesterday I started my first year at Croydon College and now I’m in my last year at Croydon College and it just feels so unreal knowing I’m sitting the last few months of my education before I finish my education for good and go into the world of work.

Below is the large photographic collection I have produced of Battersea Park.

I won’t lie to you, I’m absolutely glad to have revisited Battersea Park after such a long while, because the weather was just right, the temperature was just right and not only that, but there wasn’t a single spot of rain which was a bonus! Mind you, I will revisit Battersea Park in the future as I want to photograph the plants again soon considering I photographed the plants mostly the last time I visited Battersea Park back in 2013.

Overall, I absolutely enjoyed my time at Battersea Park after such a long wait and I cannot wait to go there again soon.

If you enjoyed this photography collection, please feel free to submit a response. Your feedback is much appreciated and if you have visited Battersea Park before, please let me know, I would love to know what you think of Battersea Park.

The Dusty Miller of Battersea Park – A Look Back

Hello everyone!!! I wanted to do a little look back on one of the blog posts, so I decided to find out the name of the plant. The name of this plant is called a Dusty Miller, as I did a little bit of research to find out the name of this plant. I was eager to find out what it was called. By using this photo of the plant I took back in August, I used Google Images to find the name of this plant, and just by looking at the Dusty Miller, you can see a lot of detail, it has that kind of feel to it where it appears to be glowing around the edges.

When I looked at this plant, it had what appeared to be a wintry appearance, as you would normally associate snowflakes with that curved shape of the plant. The Dusty Miller has a beautiful texture, and because of how structured it looks, it stands out. Going to Battersea Park in August was special, as it was a place where I could expand my creative ideas further.

Despite the hot weather last summer, it was truly special because you could see the whole of London from a glimpse, and to top it all off, I could see the River Thames below, which gave me two ideas to create a few panoramic photos that would show the whole landscape around Battersea Park. I hope to go there again soon after I leave school as I’m now in my last couple of months of secondary education.

To conclude, I have provided 4 images of the same Dusty Miller plant photo for different sizes that are suitable for the iPad & iPad mini, iPhone & iPod touch, Laptop/PC and Apple’s iMac/Macbook. Feel free to download these wallpapers anytime:

Thank you for reading this blog post.
