Tickled Pink!

Nature was certainly tickled Pink with the wonderful, yet breezy and sunny weather.

Below is this photo I took of one of the plants that inspired me to write about this little photo moment.

Did you enjoy the wonderful, yet breezy and sunny weather yesterday? Please tell me, I would love to know how you made the most of yesterday’s wonderful, yet warm, breezy and sunny weather.

Blushing Pink!

What a beautiful and wonderful day it was.

It was quiet again at work today and I’ve been enjoying the wonderful weather, and as it’s set to get warmer over the next few days, I’ll be off on Monday so I’ll be making the most of the free time while it’s available.

Here’s a photo of one of the plants that were blushing pink in this wonderful, sunny Spring weather.

 

Was mother nature blushing pink for you today?

Please tell me. I would love to hear your response.

Spring! You Beauty!

Whilst on my way to work, I couldn’t resist seizing the opportunity to photograph mother nature in her finest form.

Her charismatic beauty brought about the sunny weather, the warmth of the world and the beauty of colour made her boldly shine through and her vibrant and positive energy shone through.

Did you enjoy the lovely, warm and sunny Spring weather?

Please tell me. I would love to hear if you soaked in the sun and made the most of the wonderful outdoors.

A Wonderful, Breezy & Sunny Day Out in London.

It was the perfect time for me to travel up to London on the 26th September as the weather was lovely, the scenery was beautiful and on a clear day like this, it was wonderful.

Whilst I was up in London, I used the opportunity wisely to photograph certain areas of London; Borough Market was beautiful, but so was the landscape. To tell you the truth, it’s not the first time I’ve been up to London on my own as I went up to London just a few short weeks before when I was planning my route to get to Camden, which I must say is also beautiful, but the fact that it was nice and sunny gave me the perfect opportunity to seize the moment by photographing certain areas of the landscape, whilst also photographing the Shard.

Honestly, London is absolutely beautiful on a sunny day, and the 26th September was the perfect example of how sunny days should be; warm, breezy, bright and beautiful and that’s why I had a wonderful, breezy and sunny day out in London.

I experimented with the low-light features on my Nikon D3300 DSLR to see how the landscapes and portraits would appear in certain situations if it was light or dark, as this helped me to visualise the landscape differently as if it was daylight one minute and sunset the next.

Below is the full collection of photographs I produced whilst I was up in London.

It was absolutely wonderful, but busy when I went up to London towards the end of September and I was glad to have seized the opportunity to visit London at the peak of Summer.

If you ever get a chance to visit London and Borough Market in the Spring and Summer months, I suggest you do because London and Borough Market are beautiful places, and you’d be crazy to not seize the opportunity to visit London and Borough Market.

If you enjoyed my photography collection of my visit to London and Borough Market, please tell me in the comments. I would love to hear your responses.

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.

Life is Precious. Make the Most of a Happy & Positive Life.

Life throws at us what we do or don’t like to experience, but it’s being able to accept who you are that really matters. Whether you have anyone around you who chooses to see you differently because of who you are and how you choose to appear, that doesn’t matter, it’s what comes from your heart and who you are that really matters the most.

In life, you can be called every name under the sun that some people may see as a gateway to all sorts of trouble, but you are the only person that matters because you can stand up for what you genuinely believe in, and not give a care about what anyone thinks of you.

In my eyes, it doesn’t matter who you love and who you choose to be, and it doesn’t matter what you look like, what matters is that you should be yourself and that you should never change for anyone because they may see you in a different light, just be yourself and realise that your life is precious, and it’s always good to make the most of the happy and positive life you will have, because you only get this kind of chance in life to be happy and to be positive as well. So make the most of your life and value how precious your life really is.

Forget what anyone thinks of you, and so what if you look different in size to everyone else, that doesn’t matter, and so what if you are different to everyone else, at the end of the day, just think, we are all different. We are all not the same. We are all born to do our own thing, and the less we take ourselves for granted, the better we feel, and the more we bring ourselves together, the better we all become.

We were all born for many purposes, and that was to be ourselves, to be accepting and equal with each other and to show complete respect to one another. Anyone’s respect doesn’t go unnoticed, but can be noticed depending on how much you respect someone and how much you care and value them.

I always believe that if you can respect everyone around you and treat everyone equally and treat everyone with diversity, then you’ll find you will move up in the world because the more respect you show, the more you’ll get respected back in return. In other words, the more equal and diverse you are, the more equal and diverse everyone will be towards you.

Life is without a shadow of a doubt precious, and it’s always good to make the most of your happy and positive life now, because you’ll never get this chance to live a happy and positive life again.

However hard things can be life, especially if you’ve been through a bad patch or if you’ve lost someone close to you, always make sure to keep positive, not just for yourself, but for them as well, and show those that are no longer around that you can keep strong for them and make sure to do them proud. After all, I always believe this, even if that person is no longer around to be by your side, keep this in mind: “I want to make sure to do you proud and to make sure to continue all of the good work you’ve done, and I will work my socks off to make sure I can do you proud.

Happiness and Positivity, in my eyes, are the keys to a wonderful life, so start living now and make something good for yourself ☺👍👌.

If this article has put a bundle of happiness and positivity in your step, please feel free to feedback your thoughts. Your feedback is absolutely appreciated. Remember, I’m always going to be here to inspire you all, so I will make sure none of you go without :-).
