I learnt to use it today :)

Abberton Reservoir.

I made a little detour on my way home from work experience today, to try and capture the sunlight over Abberton Reservoir. I think I succeeded :)

I spent a lot longer there than I had originally planned (I left work at half 5 and didn't get home until 7 :S) because there were so many feathers! And really nice and different feathers too, like from geese and swans. The ones I really wanted were all out of reach (there was a fence) but I still probably picked up about 50, of all shapes and sizes, including some really long ones :) a good haul.

I love the way you can see the rays of sun breaking through the clouds :)

The reflection on the water in these is amazing.


The sky amazes me. It's so big and beautiful, I love the shape the clouds make.
The view out my bedroom window tonight:

I love the tones of this photo ^

Pretty Pictures.

Some photographs I took on my way home :)

I just think this is an adorable name for a street:

Hollyhocks, my new favourite flower:

I drive past this house twice a day and it's on a really annoying road where there's nowhere to stop, but luckily there was a bit of traffic today so I got a quick photo while I was waiting. I love the red roses against the white.

I (cheekily) picked some wildflowers and put them in a jar with some ribbon tied round the neck :) the lavender smells so good.

Underground Roundels.

Sorting through some older work for my website I found these, which I did for a Print projects in which I was briefed to write, design and publish my own magazine. I chose to do it about the disused stations on the London Underground, and gave the magazine a very handmade/scrapbooky feel, as if I'd been around the underground collecting the information.

The Last Few Days...

I went out at lunch today (I'm on work experience) and had a bit of a wander around old Colchester with my camera:

There's been beautiful flowers blooming everywhere recently, and I'm a sucker for flowers so I couldn't resist!

The sky was looking amazing last night so I got a shot with the weather vane on top of my garage:

My mum's statue in the garden. I'm pretty pleased with the framing of this photograph:

Mersea Island.

I persuaded my dad to drive me to Mersea Island today, as I wanted to take photos of the beach huts.
It was such a lovely day, however, that there were loads of people on the beach so I couldn't get the shots I wanted :( I'll have to go back early next weekend before the beach fills up.

We also went to Tollesbury Marina on the way home.


I've downloaded an app on my blackberry that edits photos (too much effort to do it myself!)

The Pothole Gardener.

This is brilliant, and so cute!
