This was Indie’s mood after a mammoth photo walk on a sunny Friday evening. This old lady still surprises me with how much energy she has for a 13 year old.…
My friend, Ayden, moved into a proper grown-up home with a garden. The previous owner has planted lots of fruit and vegetables, so I took some rhubarb home. I haven’t had rhubarb since I was a kid, which I used to dip in sugar. My metabolism wouldn’t forgive me for that now, so I just boiled it and washed it down with black coffee. It was a tasty breakfast!
Today is vet day. Indie is struggling to walk up stairs and I’ve noticed she trips over her back legs a lot. I’m not too concerned. It’s very normal for a dog of Indie’s age (12) to have arthritis. Hopefully the vet will give us some medication. I’ve also ordered dog stairs so she can get onto the sofa without jumping.
This was one of those Sundays I really enjoy. A day of uninterrupted me stuff, like taking Indie for a long walk, cleaning the house and going out for a run. The fact the sun was shining instantly put me in a good mood. These Scottish winters can feel awfully long, you know. The light in my apartment was on point and I had to capture Indie settling into this sun patch for a sleep.
Gosh, this is the longest I’ve went without updating my photo blog. I won’t be making a habit of it, it just so happened I’ve been ‘busy’. (I hate that word. Despite being ‘busy’ I’ve still found time to watch Casey Neistat Vlogs, so it’s less about being ‘busy’ and more about not prioritising taking pictures.)
I have some exciting trips coming up, so that will change. In a couple of weeks I’ll be in New York for my sister’s hen do. When I get back from NYC, a bunch of us avid Instagram users are heading to Isle of Skye for a photo trip. FUN!
On Sunday I followed Joshua around on his shoot with Adam. I took a bunch of behind the scenes photos of Joshua being a pro, which you will see… eventually. Afterwards I got a glimpse into how Joshua edits his photos, which is an interesting insight. I should watch other photographer’s process more often.
Pardon my sticky table. Today I picked up my 28mm lens from AJ Johnstone after spending the past 2 weeks there getting repaired. The 28mm lens is my least used lens, I’ve just never grown fond of the wide perspective (the 50mm is my go-to lens for pretty much everything). However, whilst it was away I found I did miss it and was conjuring up lots of portrait ideas for use with the 28mm. Without it, I found I was going places and my composition was too tight (especially coffee shops and restaurants), and being an all-prime girl, it was something only my 28mm could fix. I couldn’t wait to use it again and shot a couple of frames of …
This is what kind of day it was yesterday. It may not look like it from the beautiful light in my apartment, but outside Hurricane Bawbag was brewing. Here’s a picture of it right outside my house. I took Indie out a couple of times yesterday, none of which ended particularly well. Let’s just say I was glad to have the privilege of working from home, therefore hiding inside for most of the day.
