#MySundayPhoto - So Quaint

#MySundayPhoto - So Quaint

When I posted this photo in a Brighton Facebook group some didn't believe that this was taken in Brighton but it's right in the centre. It's kind of hidden but easy to find. 

It looks like a beautiful quaint English village but it's about 5 minutes from the seafront. With the flags fluttering in the breeze and the blossom on the trees it looks perfect.

First Photo with the Olympus

First Photo with the Olympus

This quaint little house is situated just off the river at the bottom of Lewes town, it's right next to Harvey's Brewery and always looks so well presented. 

It must have a history but I couldn't find much about it, I'd love to find out more about it and actually see inside of it.

A Little Love Bird

A Little Love Bird

A little photo I captured from Drusillas Park over the weekend, makes a nice change from landscape photos. 

Anyone that has visited zoos will understand the struggle of taking photos there, dealing with the reflections and sometimes the animals are in a dark part of the enclosure.

#MySundayPhoto - Woodland Path

#MySundayPhoto - Woodland Path

I'm loving seeing the changes in the local woodland. A month back it was brown and lifeless, a couple of weeks ago full of bluebells and now they've gone it's bursting with green. 

I particularly like this photo with the path off to the right, the way it leads you into woods.

Small Batch Coffee Roasters

Small Batch Coffee Roasters

On the high street, café culture has continued to boom and is growing on daily basis. My friends and family know I love to enjoy a proper cup of coffee every day. Not necessarily a bad thing in my opinion. I'm very guilty of contributing to the 95 million cups consumed every day just in the UK alone. That is a huge figure that continues to climb. It's partly due to the fact there are so many fantastic coffee houses, roasters and cafés out there.

#MySundayPhoto - Fairytale

#MySundayPhoto - Fairytale

There's something about it, may be it's the sunlight or the colours but this feels like something out of a fairytale. 

The trees are bursting with fresh leaves, the grass is growing and the birds are chirping. 

This is the best time of the year to enjoy the outdoors and fill yourself up with nature.

My Guide to Instagram Shadowbanning

My Guide to Instagram Shadowbanning

The term shadowbanning has been around on Instagram for a good 6-9 months at this point. For those that are out of the loop, this is a phrase whereby Instagram can apply a setting to your account that means it is invisible to new followers. This means engagement and reach are greatly reduced. You still show up to current followers but it harms the growth of an account.

#MySundayPhoto - Bluebells

#MySundayPhoto - Bluebells

There is nothing that sums up this time of year quite like a proper English Woodland filled with bluebells in full bloom. 

For me, it's a sign that Spring is in full flow and that Summer is right around the corner. 

I do not think I have ever seen anything more beautiful than the bluebell I have been looking at. I know the beauty of our Lord by it.

 - Gerard Manley Hopkins

This was taken using portrait mode on my photo, it's an underused mode as I think people only think it's for photos of people.

#MySundayPhoto - Hidden Woods

#MySundayPhoto - Hidden Woods

The other day I went hunting for bluebells...I found some but that's for another day. Whilst exploring I stumbled across this part of the woods which looked like a walkway into a hidden part of the woods. 

At the end of it was an opening to a lake, the weather wasn't great but I will return when the sun comes back out.
