Photo of the Week: Scenery

It’s been a week of work, alas, and so not many interesting things have happened, or I’ve been able to photograph. I did take a leisurely stroll back home after Mass on Sunday morning, and bought a yummy Bento box from the chain-store Wasabi. Although it was a chilly day, I wanted to eat in the fresh air, so I sat down in St Pancras’ Square, a hidden gem across the way from King’s Cross station. Pretty, eh? I love the disconnected waterfall features they’ve got going on.

Photo of the Week: Summertime

The vibrant oranges and greens of Britain’s attempt at spring-summer. I used a light adjustment here to combat the overgrowth covering in the forest as I took the photo, but the colours are otherwise unedited. This tree also caught my eye because of its decaying exterior (and interior, I suppose). Story inspiration, anyone? 😀 Feel free to pin and share and inspire some more.

Sorry I’ve not been much on schedule lately. With job applications and editing, I’ve had ideas for posts, but only got halfway with loads. Maybe I’ll post an update at some point.

Rain and Cherry Blossoms

I think it’s fair to say that it’s spring. Granted, the clocks don’t spring forward until the end of March, but the English days have been getting warmer (even if the nights haven’t), to the point that it’s awkward to where loads of layers. In fact, as I remarked recently, it’s almost cardigan weather again. Good for me, as I recently bought a new CollectIf clothing jumper in the sale. It arrived today, the cute little thing, gold and apt for Spring, though it was first in the AW/15 collection.

It’s been raining on and off. Mostly on, but there are days where the sun makes it unbearable to wear a coat – and days where one must travel with enough piece of wear to change if necessary. But speaking of which, the change of weather heralds the change of season.Even if it isn’t really Spring, I think it will be in my mind, because of the showers. That, and this:

This shot I spotted on my walk into town. I go a variety of ways, but this is the crossroads of smaller roads. Sometimes it’s nice not to have to walk next to the main road. And then I come across this. Almost walked past it. But the blossoms called to me, with their lovely dappled heads. Against the sky, they were so vibrant and noticeable.

It’s not the best shot, but it’s something I rather like. Spring is on its way, with a flourish, and hopefully better spirits.

Photo of the Week: Stumped

It’s that lovely time of the week again when I present a photo I’m particularly proud of.

My walk home from campus isn’t the most interesting. Okay, it has people and places, but it is missing the integral feel of life. You know? I, in my walk back, stopped to observe the squirrels in a little clump of woodland, and I came upon this stump -artistic in its own right – amongst the slender trees in the woodland. Pretty, no?
