200th Post celebrations

Posted on

Another milestone reached in my blogging ventures so I thought I would mark the occasion. When I reached my 100th post I decided to share my 10 favourite posts since I started blogging so I thought I would do something similar and share my 10 favourite posts since my 100th. Many of the posts have a lovely collection of photo’s to go with them.

  1. Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium I’m currently looking forward to the opening of this cafe which looks like it’s set for the beginning of next year. It is very exciting and I’m sure once I get to go I will let you all know what it’s like. I’ve got a feeling that it’s going to be very popular.
  2. Consuelo Parra – Digital Art An artist that I discovered this year. Check out some of the pictures that I have included in this post.
  3. Ronan Keating Live This seems like ages ago, I can’t believe it was at the beginning of the year. How time flies!
  4. The Struggle One of the few Poems that I wrote this year along with ‘Defeated’ and ‘Don’t Judge Me’ which I’ve also included in this list. I’m hoping to compile some more poems for 2014 because I’m not that bad at writing them.
  5. Egg-Citing Art Lots of giant egg designs in Covent garden. There are so many photos.
  6. Defeated
  7. Don’t Judge Me 
  8. A Damp Day in Camden Town This is the only time I visited Camden this year. I hope to go again next year. It’s so hard to find the time to fit everything in. There are lots of places that I had hoped to visit this year but didn’t.
  9. Carrie Hope Fletcher Photos of Carrie performing at this years ‘West End Live’. She has become one of my favourite YouTubers.
  10. Garden Wildlife It’s surprising what you can find in your own back garden. See what you can find.

Garden Wildlife

Posted on

I’ve learnt recently that you don’t have to go any further than your own back garden to capture some lovely photos of the flora and fauna. Apart from the abundance of birds that surround the seed that is provided for them, some new visitors have been spotted hanging around too.

 

 

 

 

A Sunny Day in Hyde Park

Posted on

I nearly forgot all about this collection of photos that I took in Hyde Park during the Big IF London Rally. I had been meaning to post them for a while. As you can see I took a real interest in the Prince Albert memorial.

Lizards

Posted on

Much to the amusement of my friend Heidi, she watched as I ran around getting excited about the mass of Lizards we found while roaming Funchal, Madeira and embarrassingly squealed with delight. Locals must have thought I was mad. I’m pretty much a fan of most reptiles and I had hoped to see some Lizards at some point during our trip around Spain and the canary Islands. Here’s my collection of Lizardy photos.

Our Red-Breasted Friend

Posted on

This little Robin follows my dad around as he’s working in the garden, he’s been hanging around on occasions for quite a while now so as he was sitting in a bush in the front garden singing to me I ran back indoors and grabbed my camera. It’s amazing how he can be so trusting by approaching humans like that.

Paignton Zoo

Posted on

Paignton zoo is another of my favourite places to visit when I’m in Devon and definitely my favourite zoo in the UK. It’s not the biggest zoo which makes it more appealing to me. There’s nothing worse than visiting a big zoo and feeling like giving up half way around. Here are just a few photo’s from my recent visit, the highlight being the desert habitat created inside a giant glass house where you will find tropical birds, lizards, snakes etc. The birds fly around freely and if your lucky you can capture some amazing photo’s of them. check out Paignton Zoo’s website for more details http://www.paigntonzoo.org.uk/

Living Coasts

Posted on

While I was in Devon, I visited one of two of my favourite places. Living Coasts is a coastal zoo in Torquay and I spent quite a lot of time there a couple of years ago. Their main attraction is the penguins on penguin beach where they are free to roam where they please and where you can get up close and personal (avoiding physical contact). Besides the penguins they have various species of sea birds, otters, fur seals and an aquarium. It doesn’t take long to walk round but it’s worth staying longer to watch all the feeds and talks especially the fur seals. If you plan on visiting yourself check out the website for more information first http://www.livingcoasts.org.uk/
