Keeping Busy!

Such a successful week:

1. Monday morning saw me take on motorway driving without bringing harm to others!

2. I spent Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday down in London Town. My friend and I walked across the city, ate too much delicious food, drank the infamous Pumpkin Spice Lattes (FYI, amazing), and visited the National Archives in Kew. 

Pumpkin Spice Lattes are definately worth the hype

3. On Friday I packed up my clothes and extra bits and pieces to move properly into my university room on Saturday, ready for Fresher’s Week and the start of term! 
4. This week I have also started my second Blogging U course, Blogging 201; a free and casually timed series of assignments to improve the blogging experience for both blogger and reader. Such a busy week means I’m super behind on this whole course, but who’s checking, right?! 

Have you been busy too? Sharing is caring…

Photography Thursday – Three Queens, Liverpool 

My photograph of Queen Mary 2 during the Three Queens event

Over May Bank holiday weekend my local city, Liverpool, helped celebrate Cunard’s 175th Anniversary by playing host to three of Cunard’s cruise Ships; Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2.  

This marked the beginning of Liverpool’s One Magnificent City – 7 weeks of cultural celebrations! 

So for this month’s Photography Thursday I wish to share the beautiful work of my fellow Instagramers and the local press!

Photography Thursday – The Atlas of Beauty

2 Comments

These days, beauty has become a fickle concept of the right angled eye liner flicks, thigh gaps and well cut cheekbones.  But for those of us not blessed with Western society’s concept of beauty and a steady hand for that eyeliner? Never fear. 

For today’s Photography Thursday I bring you the portrait talents of Romanian photographer Mihaela Noroc, and her ongoing project The Atlas of Beauty.

Noroc has visited over 60 countries, immersing herself and her camera in remote, rich and beautiful cultures.  Her project involves taking portrait photographs of the culture’s concept of beauty.  For the future, she hopes the project to become known worldwide and an inspiration to women to be themselves. If this blog post goes any way towards helping that be achieved, then I believe I have done my good deed for the day.

“In my opinion, beauty means to keep alive your origins and your culture.  To be natural, sincere, authentic, particular, not necessary fashion or skinny.” – retrieved from Noroc’s tumblr

Photography Thursday!

3 Comments

So last weekend brought the end of my Blogging 101 course. Unfortunately I’m a little behind. So today, I am starting a new feature which will occur the first Thursday of every month.

Welcome to Photography Thursdays!

Every month I will either post about a photographer I admire, or one of my own photographs I am proud of.

So onwards and upwards…

February’s Photography Thursday’s feature is Richard Silver.

His series ‘Time Slice‘ is an ongoing project depicting how iconic buildings and monuments change with the light of day.

 

Silver patiently takes around 36 photos before layering them together to create the final compositions.

I love this concept showing the true lights of day and how the different hues of blue (my favourite colour) change beautifully depending on the time.

Cheers!
