Nature Photography is my favourite hobby and interest besides music :-) I have been into my photography for 7 years now as I took a real interest in it when I was 14 years old with my mum being my inspiration to take up photography and my uncle helped me by giving me my first ever proper camera when I was 16 years old! While I was in college, besides studying a level 3 diploma in childcare, I also did a level 2 course in practical photography, which I absolutely loved and passed with flying colours! But I do wish now that I had done an A-Level in photography instead!

I used to enjoy writing too, I haven't done it for a while as I drifted away from it. My writing only REALLY appeals to a niche group of people as I pretty much wrote fan-fiction which I know doesn't appeal to a lot of people. But I would write to express any bottled up emotions that I had.

I love My Chemical Romance even though they are no longer together, they were and will always be my heroes. I love Green Day and Bon Jovi, along with Simple Plan, Guns n Roses, Bowie and many other musicians - I'm quite a collective and I will pretty much listen to anything!


Current Residence: United Kingdom
Favourite genre of music: Rock/Alternative Rock
Favourite photographer: Jose A Gallego
MP3 player of choice: iPod Nano

The camera that I currently use (it's the only camera I have!) is an Olympus E-520. I hope to one day be able to save up enough money to afford a new camera that I can use, but I do love my little Olympus camera!
Interests
It's been a month since I last posted a journal. Not a lot has happened in a month; I turned 23 on the 8th of this month, my poor father got involved in a car accident but he's fine though thankfully . . . same couldn't be said for the car though. I'm not really one for posting journals often. But I felt I needed to do this one though.

Because to put it simply, it's time for a change and that more or less is upon the horizon. All I can hope is that I'm successful, and if I am, it'll mean going back to my original field of work. And if I'm not, then I'll keep trying until I am eventually successful. And to aid with this change, I also have booked my first driving lesson; being able to drive will give me more freedom and independence and a chance to go further afield.

I think I say this every time but I want to really try and get back into my photography, but in the spare time that I do get, I tend to be too tired with no motivation to do so. I'm hoping that if I am successful with my career change, I'll be able to achieve this. I still have a small selection of photo's on my memory card from March that I am yet to upload and look through; they're the very few I took a few days after my uncle had passed.

I still have moments of sadness over my uncle where I become tearful. Still weird to think that he is no longer with us, but wherever he ended up, I know he'll be having one heck of a party with the many other heroes we've lost so far this year.

I also saw an interesting post/quote on facebook; breaking someone's trust is like crumpling up a piece of perfect paper. You can smooth it over but it's never going to be the same again. I rarely trust anyone anymore. People who have broken my trust, do not get a second chance and I can never forgive them. Something I learnt after giving people a second chance, only to be disappointed and hurt for a second time.

Now to go and curl up quietly for the evening.

Oh, and how can a little toe hurt so much? Bathroom door attacked my little toe over a week ago, and it still hurts.

It amazes me that I did not injure myself trampolining yesterday given how dodgy my knees are, but instead I manage to hurt myself at work instead :| (Blank Stare)  yes my calf/leg muscles and arches in my feet are rather stiff and achy from trampolining, and my shoulders and upper back are a little sore from helping my mum clean the house from top to bottom, I manage to move/shift/pick up something awkwardly and hurt my lower back :| (Blank Stare) 

Either way, trampolining was so much fun and even though it is a health hazard to my knees, I'd quite happily go again!

Time to go and make myself a cocoon out of blankets along with the comfort of a hot water bottle for the rest of the evening.

It still all seems so surreal to me; been over a week since myself, family and friends said our final goodbyes to my uncle. A very emotional, yet beautiful send off. I don't think I can ever listen to Rocking All Over the Word by Status Quo, High Ho Silver Lining by Jeff Beck ever again without thinking about my uncle. Its amazing how everyone will come together, to support one another when you're having to say goodbye. And how after, life just returns back to normal once again.

I still can't quite focus and concentrate properly. I still have photos on my camera from the beginning of March that I haven't even uploaded onto the computer yet. It probably doesn't help that at the moment, work is rather stressful too, almost to a point where there is no job satisfaction and has me in two minds. But I don't want to delve into that. But I live in hope that it'll soon have a turn around and I'll be able to enjoy it once more.

I guess at this present time, I am still a little lost with the death of my uncle as well as angry, as I feel his death could have been prevented by the ones that were meant to care for him. But again, I don't want to delve into that either, as the more I think about it, the angrier I get. I'm stressed and down in the dumps with work. And I guess in a way, I feel alone. Yes I have the comfort of my family and a close friend, but I still feel alone. But in a way, I'd rather be alone, than waste my time on someone who doesn't care, only makes an effort when they need/want something and just end up being toxic and dragging you down into the depths even further. I certainly find it incredibly more difficult to be able to trust anyone anymore.

But with all the negativity at the moment, I live each passing day in the hopes of some positivity; that things will get better, as they always tend to. I mean, its only 34 more days until Captain America Civil War is out in the UK . . . . yes ok, the film might reduce me to a complete emotional wreck, but I am certainly looking forward to it, counting down the days. And something else to look forward to, is an upcoming trip to the London Harry Potter studio tour in May. So there is already some positivity to look forward to.



But I still stand by that 2016 is proving to be a real shit year.

Thanks very much for your comments they made my day. If you fancy chatting on Facebook, swapping tips or just to generally chat about stuff give us a shout and I'll send you a link. 
If not don't worry, your work is amazing and the best education you can get with a camera is to just get out there and experiment you have a lot of talent and I'M sure that you will go far.

Thanks so much :) I will bare that in mind! My mother is my influence of getting me into photography when I was 14 years old. She's letting me borrow one of her cameras for a little while so I can decide whether or not I want to buy a new camera! I just love going out with a camera and experimenting and playing around and seeing what is about to photograph.
