Treats From Joli

I’d much rather spend my money on gadgets than clothes. These gadgets are my livelihood, so I better take good care of them. But I haven’t always felt that way. In fact, I used to be pretty careless with my ‘stuff’.

My last laptop had a nasty dent on it from dropping it during a Skype call, and my previous iPhone had its screen replaced 3 times (within 4 months, might I add). It was time to invest in a beautiful iPhone and laptop case.

The smooth collection from Joli caught my eye—particularly the brown leather with aqua lining. They arrived this morning alongside a handwritten note. I love them!

 
 

Bubble Tea Summer

It’s raining. Again. I decided to look through my photos from the 3 days of summer we had, coming to the conclusion that bubble tea is perfect for summer days. I miss both bubble tea and summer days.

 
 

Loch Lomond Drive

Dan Rubin returned to Glasgow for his second Glasgow Photo Walk workshop. We decided to chase the morning light for the photo walk segment, setting our alarm for 4.45AM. Urgh. The dull, flat light we were met with didn’t exactly make the early rise worth it, but you’ve got to work with what you’ve got.

 
 

3 Days Of Summer

Scotland had its 3 days of summer last week. Alas, I was in a hospital for 2 of them with a respiratory infection. Boo. Upon being discharged, Dan—who was in Scotland for Glasgow Photo Walk—and I headed to Merchant City for iced coffee (check out Wilson Street Pantry if you’re in the area). Merchant City has a lot of graffitied and textured walls, making for the perfect portrait backdrop.

 
 

Fresh Air

I’ve been feeling a bit ‘under the weather’. A bit blue. I think it’s a combination of too much work on my plate, and my dad’s 10 year anniversary fast approaching.

It’s not a big deal, as there is one thing always guaranteed to lift my mood. Fresh air. Trees, sea, nature… It works every time, and today was no exception. All of this is on my doorstep. Well, a 20-40 minute drive.

Sometimes it’s worth taking a couple of hours out of a busy day to come up for air, no matter how ‘busy’ we are. This has helped clear my head.

 
 

Malia’s New Friend

Tomorrow is a huge day for the Baxter clan. We welcome my nephew into the family. I can’t wait to meet him, although it still doesn’t seem real yet. We’re a small, fairly close family and this is the first baby to come along, so it’s a pretty big deal for us and we’re all very excited.

This is Malia, my sister’s dog. I’m not sure how Malia will handle no longer being the centre of attention. I’ll still make a point of photographing her funny face, but I definitely anticipate a lot of baby photos appearing on this blog.

 
 

Love.

When she’s happy, I’m happy.

 
 

Cameron House, Loch Lomond

Half an hour from my city flat is Cameron House, a luxury hotel on the quiet banks of Loch Lomond. I’m not so interested in Cameron House as much as I am the banks it sits on. Imagine waking up to that view every morning (granted that the weather isn’t always this good)!

 
 

Macy

I haven’t photographed Macy since she was a puppy… 2 years ago! With the beautiful weather we’ve been having, Sheryl and I took the dogs a walk along the Clyde. Indie—my dog—isn’t the most sociable when it comes to other dogs, but she did well with two pugs dancing around her paws.

 
 

Lagom, Milk + Krispy Kreme

Finally. Some down time to myself. I choose milk, a toffee doughnut, and a read at issue 2 of Lagom, which I haven’t had a chance to flick through yet. I like the photography in this magazine.
