Our aim as a family this year is to visit more National Trust properties than we did last year. In 2018 we were very bad at visiting places but we want to correct this for 2019. The first one that we ticked off the list was Bateman's National Trust which is the former home of Rudyard Kipling.
I thought I’d try something a little different this year. With #MySundayPhoto ending at the end of 2018 I wanted to keep posting on a Sunday and so I think I’m going to post my photos from the previous week that I’ve shared on Instagram.
My focus this coming year really is on Instagram and growing that. It’s the social media platform that I enjoy the most. Instead of sharing photos everyday what I’m finding works for me is sharing a photo every other day.
As it’s the start of 2019 I thought I’d share My Top 5 Photos of 2018. These aren’t the photos that received the most likes, or the most amazingly technical photos…these are ones that I enjoy.
Photos for me should transform you back to that moment when you took it, and make the person looking at the photo drift away.
Whilst it seemed like everyone in Sussex was still in bed I was up exploring.
This was taken the day after Boxing Day, it was a misty start to the day and I was looking forward to getting a few misty scenes.
As I was setting up the sky suddenly came alive, the sun was rising and bringing a burst of colour. It only lasted a matter of minutes, I was in the right place at the right time.
Photography is one of the most creative and fulfilling hobbies, and something you need to make sure you focus on moving forward. There are so many benefits you can take from being a photographer, and it is important that you make sure you focus on taking things up a notch and doing what you can to make your hobby more of a passion and focus on potentially trying to turn this into a career move.
Towards the end of the year it’s the perfect time to take in all that nature has to offer before the festivities take over.
We live in such a beautiful country and I sometimes feel like we forget that.
This photo was taken overlooking Lake Windermere in The Lake District, one of the most amazing places in the World.
In Brighton you really see some amazing pieces of street art. This one by a.pozas_art is brilliant, and tells the story of social media in today’s World.
I believe the actual piece is called ‘Always 0 love’. I know nothing about art but I love the way this makes you think and it means different things to different people.
