Checking in...

Hi guys, just a little blog post to say hi and update you on some news!

Its been a busy few weeks for us in Leeds... after putting in an offer for a house in December and waiting FIVE months to exchange and complete we finally got all the keys!! HURRAY! We spent last weekend decorating and this weekend we will be moving, I'm so excited. However as weekends are usually my 'taking care of blog business' time, I haven't written or scheduled any posts and I'm not 100% sure when I'll be able to. The good news is that I have photos to share, just no time or probably wifi for a little bit ha.

In photography related news... and its exciting news at that! I've been featured in the latest issue of Artful Blogging magazine. In print and everything! How amazing does this photo of mine look as a spread, it makes me a bit weak at the knees happy haha. Check out the preview of the magazine here and if you're thinking of buying it, I would highly recommend it! As well as my feature (which obviously is worth a read lol) there are loads of gorgeous articles and photos, I've really enjoyed reading my copy. 

In other exciting film photography news, my blog has been featured on Peta Pixel as part of my blog friend Jim Grey's '49 film photography blogs worth following' post. If you love film photography as much as I do then definitely check out this list - Jim has put together so many great blogs, some I've been reading a while and some new to me that I can't wait to check out too. 

I really love being a part of the film photography community, so its really an honour to be featured and part of such a great collection of websites, I'm still so thrilled about it.

Hopefully it won't be too long until I'm back here with regular content, but for now I'll be on Instagram sharing my Britain in Focus inspired series of photos daily, so head over there if you're missing me and I'll see you back here soon.

A little catch up...

It's September! Can you believe it? I can't... but I am happy that September is finally here as this month we're going to Whitby, woohoo!! I can't wait already.

August flew by, I really enjoyed catching up with my photos as part of The August Break, especially the Paris photos. I really can't believe that its been a year since we were there now.

But now I need to catch up with August, so what did I actually do?

Our parents came to visit and we took our Mum's out on a couple of day trips.

I did a lot of crochet (including an attempt at an owl using the crocodile stitch, so fun!).

I saw two golden post boxes, one in Horsforth and one in Leeds City Centre.

We went to two museums.

I went to an amazing cake club meeting and ate a lot of cake.

And then finished the month off with a glorious day at the beach, hurray!!

How was August for you?


Lately* on Instagram

*As in within the last two months, haha! I'll be organised with it one day I'm sure...


... I've organised all my negatives and photos. That box is three years of film photos, all labeled, though I do keep finding more around the house still.

... we went to see the Olympic Torch just 5 minutes away from our house.
... I've spotted lots of pretty flowers.

...I've become obsessed with finding green doors...

... developed a love of feet and tile photos.

...made new horse friends...

...enjoyed looking up around Leeds (and taken part in the #lookupleeds tag)...

...been amused by misspelt names, we got mine right eventually but Thomas's is missing the H ...

... hung pretty things up in our house...

I've averaged 90 photos a month since I got Instagram, crazy.
