Japanese Meditation Garden (iPhoneography)

Today (Thursday 10th August) we went to a Japanese meditation garden and I had no idea what to expect so instead of lugging around my Canon DSLR I decided that I would just use my phone to get some images of the place to show you guys.

If you’re from around near where I live, (Lincoln, Newark, Gainsborough) I seriously suggest you go give this place a visit. It is absolutely stunning, Maybe not for you if you’re not into meditation and anything connected to that, if you like beautiful landscaping and gardens you’ll certainly find it interesting, if you like pretty things, you’ll absolutely die for the crystal garden, like I did.

All photographs were taken with iPhone 7plus and edited using VSCO cam.

The Bail Gate, Lincoln, 2017.

Happy Wednesday everybody! Hope you’re all having a great week so far and have been enjoying the wonderful sunshine. Today I have got a very short and sweet post for you πall;

I’ve been playing a lot with my photography recently and for some reason, I am drawn to photographing streets. I don’t even know what this kind of photograph would come under subject wise. I always find myself pottering to the prettiest part of Lincoln when I want to take photographs because it’s so photogenic and accessible and I always spot different things every time.All images have been taken using Canon 6D.

Photography By The Sea

Skegness isn’t the greatest of beaches, To us yellowbellies though it’s the bee’s knee’s aka known as ”Skegvagas” I’m not entirely sure how it’s got that name as it isn’t quite as glamorous as Las Vegas, but it is the closest thing Lincolnshire has got to it.

I’ve been to Skegness so many time’s within my lifetime and it never seems to change at all. It’s exactly how I remember it, same stalls and everything. I decided to go to a different end of the beach today to capture my images. I purposely stayed away from the arcades as I can’t get myself out of them once I go into them and I spend stupid amounts of money.

The weather wasn’t ideal for the Infrared shots and honestly, I’m still getting used to my full spectrum camera so a lot of my Infrareds became duffs and even in RAW somehow was completely unrecoverable.

BBQ, Board Games & Beach Trip! 

Happy Monday everyone.

This weekend has been a much busier one than usual and it’s actually felt good to have a ‘proper weekend’. Unfortunately what I had originally had planned for the weekend just gone fell through because of the drop in temperature outside and lack of sunshine. It will however definitely happen sometime over the summer if not soon!

That hasn’t stopped me from having an awesome weekend though. Saturday I woke up feeling the healthiest and happiest I had been all week ( I had been a bit under the weather during the week!) I spent a stupid amount of time messing around with the template of my blog, trying to freshen it up a little bit. I have a feeling I’ll never be happy with the way it looks because I’m a perfectionist.

Later on in the day, we went to Stewart’s mum’s house for a BBQ. I absolutely love BBQ’s. I love how they bring a family together, sunshine, maybe even rain, food, alcohol, food.. so many different things everybody enjoys, we can all enjoy together.

After we played UNO we then played Brainiak, which was hilarious. I have never played it before and honestly, it was hilarious watching everyone bicker over their answers and harmlessly laugh at one another; Me and Stewart got a task where we had to write 5 things that are illegal, everyone laughed because I wrote ”Smoking in the car with a 16-year-old” Apparently it was ”very specific” and everybody, including myself, found it extremely comical. You can totally tell I’d never played this game before.

Sunday came and we had nothing to do, the weather wasn’t good enough for us to do what we had originally planned so, we decided to grab our camera’s and go for a trip to Skegness. We don’t go to the coast very much so it was nice to do something different for a change and honestly, the day was really relaxing. I didn’t find much that took my fancy to photograph with the big camera but it was nice to take it out, use it and brush off the cobwebs it seems to be collecting sat on my desk at home.

I ate everything you’re supposed to eat at the seaside today,  asides from the MUST HAVE; Fish and Chips. I definitely had a whippy ice cream and took home some dinky doughnuts though. That’s my favourite part of going to the beach after all.

Keep an eye out for the Photography post with my images from the seaside, coming Wednesday this week!

See you later, Cyber Sweets!

16th June 2017

Here we are again, the time of the week I bore you with how very little I have done this week. This week honestly, hasn’t really been that bad. Sunday Me and Stewart took a trip to The Bailgate, we were initially going up there to go to Lincoln Castle, there was a Comedy and Food festival going on and we were intrigued by it. After finding out that halloumi fries were like £10 we decided we’d rather just sit and have a Greg’s and just take a walk around town. It was a very relaxed day, I am still a bit narked that I never got to go to my favourite ice-cream parlour though. On from that, we spent the evening at Stewart’s mum’s house, having a good catch up and natter with the family and a delicious Indian takeaway.

Me and Stewart downloaded Pokemon go again and decided to take a walk around the Bailgate yet again. It was something to do, it got us out the house and walking, getting in those daily steps. Not gonna lie, I’m WELL happy with the new Pokemon I  caught – I had to put my only lure on though because literally nobody plays it anymore and there were no lures anywhere across town. *sobs*

On Wednesday I went and chilled in Lincoln Castle grounds with my best friend Caitlin. It’s so cool you can literally sit within the walls of the castle and just chill, enjoy the free wifi and have a chat, read a book, do some work or have a picnic. We then went to the cutest little cafe on steep hill called Bells Tea Shop. It was so cute and the food was delicious.

I spent the day at mum’s house and got to experience the stress of taking a 2-year-old shopping, as much as he was adorable pushing his little trolly of flowers around the shop, he was not cute when I was pushing his trolly and he was running off shouting ”POO,POOO!”

”Eli, do you need to go poo?”

Nope, he’s just shouting poo, poo for the fun of it. Kids eh.

I’ve got my brother, sister and her partner coming around tonight for some drinks, Buzz the music quiz and Singstar. I’m very excited about it. I will update you on the next weekly update about the antics of that event.

To end this post here is a stupidly adorable photograph of all by buns at dinner time.
