I was on my old photography Tumblr page the other day, looking for one of my old self portraits (featured in my previous post) and I realised how much I miss taking photos on an actual camera. I take a tonne of photos on my phone and share them with friends through Instragram almost daily. However there’s something so special about picking up my DSLR and heading out with purpose or sometimes without, just having my camera on me encourages me to capture the beauty around me. Over the summer I plan on dusting of my baby and going for lots of lovely long photography walks.
I thought I would share some of my old photos from the blog with you, lemme know what you think!
Taken whilst on holiday with my Dad in Kent. This flower was flowing peacefully at the edge of a pond.
Georgia Train from Bitter Ruin. They were supporting Amanda Palmer at a gig in London at Heaven. I spoke to Georgia after the show, she said she liked my hair. This gig was a crazy experience, I went spur of the minute with my friend. It was at a gay bar in the middle of London and we were only 16! So glad we went though!
Space Snail! That is all.
My friend Sam by Swanpool lake. I love it here, so beautiful and peaceful. Swans and ducks often congregate here, I love going down and feeding them. Soon I will be living near this lake and plan to jog around it as much as possible so expect more pictures like this!
My best friend Taylor posing for a photography project. The shoot was meant to be inspired by Kate Bush’s video for Wuthering Heights, so we naturally spent most of the time dancing around singing and scaring off dog walkers.
Taken in Paris on an art and photography trip. We were just outside the Louvre and I was so impressed with the architecture. I didn’t actually mean to get the biker in the picture, he kinda swooped in out of nowhere. It clearly was meant to be though as he makes the picture.
Another image from Paris (obviously!). We were hanging out on the lawn by the Eiffel Tower and it had just stopped raining. We weren’t originally going to stop there at all but we saw it from a distance and convinced the teachers to let us go. We had a hilarious time trying to get there though through all these back streets.
This one is from a shoot I did using the clothes from the shop I used to work at. This is outside the National Maritime Museum just by the shop which is right next to the marina and is almost always windy as hell! I would always look great before work until I turned into the square and boom, hair is a mess and my skirt is doing a Monroe! Anyway the wind worked to my advantage for this shot giving it a real dynamic edge. My friend Shanice kindly braved the winds to make this possible.
I hope you like what you saw!

Hopefully this post will inspire me, and maybe even you to pick up you camera and go for an artistic walk.
I would love to know what you think of my photos, feel free to drop a comment.
