A Walk on the Wild Side {part 1}

On the last day of the summer holidays my mum and I went to the wildlife park. I love going there because I love seeing all the animals and it’s so relaxing to walk around! I brought my camera with me because I knew I’d be taking lots of photos and boy did I! Over 200 shots and I had to pick only a few so I narrowed them down into a two part post – the second of which will be going up later this week!

Out at Langness

It was such a gorgeous day today! A walk out to Langness was hard to resist especially with my camera strapped across my shoulder. The clouds were so dramatic and the sun was warm with a cooling breeze ever so slightly whispering across your skin, a good turn around from the lashings of rain we’ve been having! Langness is so beautiful and going out there makes my day!

Childlike Innocence

Meet Ted, probably the most photogenic, sweetest and most hilarious boy you will ever have the pleasure of knowing! I don’t normally do black and white photos or even portraits of people {I’m more of a macro gardener myself} but Ted makes it so easy because of his cheekiness, charm and loveable personality! I love this boy to bits and brightens my day every time I see him! Come on just look at that face, how can you not love him?

{My favourite quote}

The sun has come out today and I’m so glad it has, the weather over the last couple of days has been terrible and the weather today has inspired me to do a post on here. The Roald Dahl quote is one I try to aspire to as I believe if you think positively then good things will come to you!

I’m very much looking forward to having dinner with my friend tonight as well as going to Costa with my mum {hot chocolate? yes please!}

Floral texture (Maltese Edition)

About a week ago I came back from spending two weeks in Malta and I absolutely loved it! The scenery is just beautiful, the wildlife is spectacular and sky is an endless blue where clouds are forbidden. I loved taking photos there {especially the bees as I got some really good macro shots of them} and sun lets me get creative with the flowers!

Book Collector

Basically I got inspired! Inspired by books and my love of reading, I got creative with the flora around me in my garden and used the setting sun to my advantage! The spider was quite difficult to shoot because it was so awkwardly positioned in the leaves {I mean, my back was killing like crazy!} but it was worth it! I think this is one of my favourite collection of photos, it definitely makes me want to take more!

3 Things

{Henna Tattoo I had drawn in Malta}

{Bertie my new puppy}

{Japanese Anemone}

The other day my friend came over for the evening as we hadn’t seen each other for a while and lets just say we got into a situation in the park. Basically I hadn’t realised I’d grown so much since the last time I went in the baby swing and you can kind of guess how it went from there! What made it even more embarrassing was the fact that there were more than several teenagers lurking around the place, which meant I had to text my mum to help me get out. Lets just say I won’t be going on any more children’s stuff, as this wasn’t the first time I had gotten myself stuck in one of their play things!

Anyway these are three of the things that are inspiring me at the moment, especially Bertie as he’s being very mischievous!

Puppy Love

I’m now back from my Holiday to Malta and have my new puppy at home with me, he’s settled in quite well and his uber fluffiness is very cute! We’ve decided to call him Bertie and he is being very good {despite being told he’s the naughty one}. I also have some new posts to put on here aswell with the photos from Malta {more macro shots – no surprise there!}

Greetings from sunnier climbs

As I’m in Malta at the moment I won’t be posting much until I get back in about 2 weeks and by that time I’ll be putting up pictures of this little fella right here:

My soon to be and yet to be named bichon frise x schnauzer mix puppy! I’m very excited about him and he will definitely be popping up from time to time in my posts! But what about until then? I’ll be getting a tan and enjoying the lovely Maltese sunshine!

stone age

We have these quirky miniature stone statues outside our house that I love taking pictures of. The flowers and plants around it make a great focal spot for photos! I love making collages of photos and the pictures here work really well together, I’m always pleased when that happens and I love seeing the garden in full bloom!
