CROYDON / FRIDAY 31ST MARCH 2017

Today, as part of the photographic collection of Croydon I produced last week and published yesterday, I continued to develop my photography skills further with the pre-installed Camera app, and as today was such a wonderful, lovely, peaceful and happy day, I couldn’t resist producing an up-to-date collection of photographs of Croydon. For this photographic collection of Croydon, I wanted to make sure that the beauty and essence of Croydon were captured in these photographs, considering that on a sunny and beautiful day like today, Croydon is vibrant, colourful, bold and bursting with life.

Shown below are the most current photographs of Croydon that I produced today.

What a better way to end March! For once, the weather has been lovely for a change and right at the end of the month too. It’s safe to say I was not at all disappointed with the way this photographic collection turned out and I am so happy with the final end result I have managed to achieve from this photographic collection.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this photographic collection I have produced of Croydon. All feedback is much appreciated.

Welcome to the New Look!!

Hello everyone! I thought I’d let you all know I updated the theme on the blog last night to the Quintus theme, and I’ve also made changes to the header, making it big and bold for the visually impaired, for those who experience blurred vision.

The Home button has made a comeback, and to make it easier to look back on previous blog posts, there is now an ‘<–Older posts’ button in place on the right of the page.

Search has moved to the left of the toolbar, meaning you’ll be able to search from the toolbar a lot easier than before. Gone are the days when Search used to be the norm for difficulties. All of that is put to rest.

Feel free to suggest new ideas for my photos via the contact button, or even comment at the bottom of this post.

Please let me know what you think of the new Quintus theme on this blog.

A Web of Flowers

As autumn nears, I wanted to make the most of the nice weather whilst I could before it starts to get cold, so I’ve uploaded a few photos of the weather before and during the heavy rainfall from yesterday.

If the nice, warm and breezy weather holds for Tuesday, I may be able to get a lot of photos at Battersea Park, so I’m hoping this good weather lasts.

On the 1st September I will be updating the header on this blog to reflect this autumn, and winter months soon to come. It is a simple, sunrise-based header, with bold text to make it look simplistic.

I have uploaded them as they are on here if you want to save them as an iPad wallpaper, and I almost forgot to mention, I have added at least 8 new wallpapers to the folder ‘Nature’s Wonders’ on Dropbox. I have provided a link below, so feel free anytime to download and use these as an iPhone or iPod touch wallpaper.

Keep your eyes peeled, as I will update this post with a video of these photos when the video has finished uploading and processing.

Update: The video has finished uploading and processing, and here it is.
