The Beach

It was great to take some time to see what else Exeter had to offer. 

So when Eva visited we went to the beach. We were also joined by Phoebe.

We went to a bizarre sea port town but it was very beautiful.

We then clambered onto some of the boats that we found at the dock.

But quickly had a bit of a posing session.

It then started to rain so we got going home.

I think we'll all come back soon.

My friend Tilly

It was when I couldn't sleep - till approx 3am - that my mind was too-ing and fro-ing. 

People always go on about how their dreams take them places, but for me its the thoughts that I have just before I fall asleep that actually send me mad.

One night I was thinking about life (here we go...) and the nack of just doing things.. just because.

Doing something just because isn't like taking the dog for a walk or getting the groceries. 

No... its when you do something ... just because...

So when I decided I wanted to start taking more photos and possibly do some portraits of my friends or people I know... I thought well I'll do it... just because

I feel as though a lot of being young is a process of self-justification... but I don't need to justify anything I do to anyone... whether it be my blog, my photos, or just going out and taking photos of a good mate of mine.

This is where Tilly comes in. 

Armed with my Minolata x-100 35mm film camera I was ready to go.

I asked Tilly to bring whatever clothes she wanted... but requested in particular that she wore her fur collar that I'd seen her in the week before.

We met at Notting Hill.

People always have an aversion for having their picture taken - (which I never understand.... the photo is bad: it gets deleted... the photo is fab: perfect for showing your children when you're old and wrinkly) - so initially it can be a bit awkward....

but Tilly is such a great friend and I am so grateful she was up for it.

I managed to snap up a couple of Notting Hill as well.

Shooting

I can't believe it is March since I did my last post.... I am determined to.

I'll slowly creep back into some things that I have missed (travelling/ university) but for the time being fill in on some of my photos that I have taken.

The first of these being at my lovely friend Esme's shoot... which was one of the best weekends. ever.

Esme - stunnah

I think the thing I'll find hardest about keeping up the blog is being at university... where most of the time I find myself sat on my arse or going to student clubs that frankly aren't the most interesting of places.

Anyhow. Heres to 2015.
