The John Rylands Library – Manchester

I’m very into books at the moment. You might not have noticed because I’ve been neglecting my blog… lack of computer will do that to a girl! But I’ve finally got my ass in gear and downloaded the WordPress app; as a result I can show you my awesome weekend trip to John Rylands library in Manchester!

Photo quality is less than great, but it’s such a beautiful building I couldn’t help but share!

500PX Photography Profile

Hey everyone,

I’m trying to get back into photography, so I’ve made a profile on 500px. It seems to be a pretty nifty site so I’d recommend it to anybody looking to get a bit more exposure for their shots.

I’m also doing a 52 week Photography Challenge. The challenge was set up by Dogwood and there is also a Facebook group where you can see photos from other members of the challenge. I’m only on week 4 but it seems to be a very good way to get me motivated to take photos. I don’t like asking people if I can take their portrait, though – it’s a problem I’m going to have to overcome!

Here are my snaps for week 1 and 2:

Week 1 (Self-Portrait)


Week 2 (Traditional Landscape)


If I remember I’ll try to upload the photos from each week (currently need to take weeks 3 and 4 off my camera!

Let me know what you think of my first two entries for the challenge, and if you think it’s something you’ll get involved with I’d love to see your entries too! πŸ˜€

My Sad Little Carrots

Winter is finally starting to pass, but I’ve definitely been neglecting the few veggies I tried to grow out there….this is one of the results. For my first attempt at carrots I’m not too upset – most are big enough to be edible!
