About an hour from Ealing is Oxford - famed for its impressive university buildings. The area has a notably different vibe to that of your typical university town and understandably so, its home to some of the world's most intelligent minds.
So... It turns out I haven't blogged or posted any photo's for over 4 months. With that in mind I have revisited some old photos and re-edited them in Lightroom.
I don't often return to places I have been before as I would prefer to invest my money and time in seeing new things, trying new foods and getting new photos, however I have a particular love for Norway since visiting Tromsø in 2014.
Venice has never been a place I was desperate to see. The city for me is a bit of a 'romantic cliché.' It's where people go to propose to their significant other (you know who you are!). However its proximity to Pula in Croatia made it a convenient day trip to see what all the fuss was about.
Having scoured 'Skyscanner' for reasonable flights during the school summer holidays, we found the only flights that looked vaguely sensible in price were to Croatia. We saved more money by opting to travel to one of the lesser-known airports - Pula on the Istrian peninsula.
In a school break I try to get away on holiday, however this half term I spent 3 days on my back repairing my car so wasn't able to go away. I still wanted to be beside the seaside so I took a trip down to Brighton.
Dear Sir or Madame would you read my book, it took me years to write, would you take a look...
You're never too old for a farm visit. A trip to Bocketts Farm in Dorking, Surrey allowed me to capture some photos of lambing season. Taking photos of animals can be tricky as they rarely sit still and often interfere with the 'perfect shot' that I have spotted through the viewfinder. However, I love trying to capture the animals' personalities in the photographs.
The first stop in our trip to Switzerland was Zurich. Arriving early in the morning we started as we meant to go on, by walking. Walking very long distances! We explored the city on foot and by tram. The weather was glorious and unexpectedly hot. After monitoring weather forecasts closely we had prepared for rain but as with previous short breaks... We got lucky!
A really interesting theme for this week's 52 Week Photo Challenge. I have portrayed the theme in a couple of ways with my photos and as mentioned in my previous post - I even managed to get the camera out and snap an original, solely for the challenge!
