Colourful York

One of the things I love about my Yashica Samurai is the zoom, the carousel photo was taken from over the road but you wouldn't be able to tell as I zoomed in!

I also felt super awkward taking the last photo in case the woman behind the flowers saw me (she didn't phew) but look at how lovely the colours of the pansies are! Worth it.

I meant to start the year with a positive, this is my word of the year, lets do this, kinda post. But lets face it January sucks if you struggle with mental health; its too dark, too miserable, too meh and too much effort and I can't quite bring myself to write that kind of post yet. Maybe in the next few weeks, who knows, things usually perk up in February with more light. I will tell you that the irony of this is that my word of the year is FOCUS - where I promised myself I would focus on the positive, focus on the good, and focus on the things I need to do. 

I'm doing the last one for sure at least - focusing on the things I need to do, and I'm focusing on myself - which means not forcing myself to write that post if I haven't got it in me. I'm still here though and the photos shall continue - which when you consider focus as a photography term - is perhaps even better haha.

There photos were taken last year in the Merchants Adventures Hall in York - it kind of looked like something from Stratford Upon Avon plonked in the city which was charming and unexpected, so I enjoyed looking around and taking photos.

The hall was being prepared for a wedding which I can imagine looked absolutely beautiful - what a stunning location for a wedding!
