Hoar Cross Hall

Since the start of 2019, I have been putting together a list of places I want to visit locally once the weather improved. The list at the moment mainly includes halls/houses/castles etc as I am fascinated by architecture. These hold historic landmarks are truly spectacular to go and capture as well. Hoar Cross Hall was

Newton Solney, UK

I was back at my parent’s house for a couple of days last week and in all honesty, I didn’t want to be there for some personal reasons so getting out the house was a must. Things have been a bit all over the place recently and progress with getting out the house and working

Catton Hall

We all have those days where we wake up with a plan, then that plan doesn’t play out as we had expected and then we feel disappointed. That’s exactly what happened yesterday. Catton Park is literally on a few miles away from where I am living at the moment…

Dead Trees

I was back home for a couple of days a few weeks ago and there is this place about a mile away from my home which I have driven past literally thousands of times and I always thought looked pretty cool and that I should check it out sometime…

A Frosty Morning

For the record, I can’t stand the cold and I am not the biggest fan of winter but waking up to it being white over with frost (it would have been better with snow as a large portion of the rest of the UK had) I couldn’t help but get a little bit excited…

Alrewas, UK

I’ve been making lots of progress recently and as I start to rebuild my life I have been trying to do more and more each day. I am currently living at my Uncle and Auntie’s house for multiple reasons which I will go into further in another post but for the most part, this has allowed me to make the progress I have been seeing…

Lowepro Tahoe BP 150 Camera Bag

As my camera gear is growing it has become increasingly difficult to juggle everything as I try to leave the house to go out and shoot. Sometimes its a couple of trips to the car and back or I take the risk of putting everything in my normal rucksack and hoping nothing gets scratched or broken. One is time-consuming and the other could potentially be costly…

Nikon 35mm f/1.8 – My First Prime Lens

I’ve been looking to add to my lens collection for some time now, especially as I am looking to pursue photography more and more, not only has a hobby but as a potential career in the future. Last year I got my hands on the Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6, this was my first lens as I ventured out and moved on from using the kit lens. The lens is considerably bigger and heavier and gives you a completely different focal length to play around with…

Walton-on-Trent, UK

So the last week I’ve spent at my aunties and uncles house in Walton-on-Trent whilst they’ve been away on holiday. The opportunity to get away for a bit whilst still relatively close to home was just what I’ve needed. I’ve spent some time here over the last few years when I’ve needed to and I’ve been meaning to come and spend some time here again..

Repton, UK

This weekend I went from the lowest of lows to a complete mentality switch and finally felt ready to start taking the next step in my recovery. I’ve had some setbacks recently, the first being ill and then an increase in anxiety and having an influx of panic attacks that left me trying to maintain everything I had put in place and no longer moving forward…
