Day 7: Father

Photography talk again 🙂

Char takes on life

The day 7 post should have been about ‘my father’, however having a picture of my dad is almost impossible as he is usually behind the lens. This is definitely where I got my love for photography from. All my life I remember my dad taking photos at any given opportunity and not just those ‘family’ snaps you grow to regret. Some of them are still really great and stay up on our walls for years without being replaced.

So, that being said I thought about how I could best show my dad in a photo without it actually being a photo of him. That being said, I was thinking about showing how he has influenced me in my life but that is so hard to show in just ONE photo as every photo I have taken has been influenced but him. Everything from my photography work when I studied…

Day 4: Do It Yourself

Char takes on life

First of all, I know this post is late again but I went for a nap at 5pm and didn’t wake up ’til 11 so by which time I just sorted few bits out turned over and went back to sleep! My sleeping pattern is all over the place recently.

Now, not to be a stereotypical girl but I have never even attempted DIY around the house. It’s always been my dad who has built the shelves in this house, and when at uni everything DIY-ish was already done and sorted.

With this challenge I think these subjects are getting harder or possibly I’m trying to think outside the box for them because taking them at face value might be a little boring for you guys. So when I thought about DIY, just like every day it had been on my mind for a little while trying to think of…

Day 3: Buttons

Char takes on life

So, this one I actually had to think for so long about because I wasn’t really sure what ‘button’ to share with you and be able to write about. It’s a tricky subject but I suppose that is a good thing as it means that whatever I choose will have a meaning and I will be able to explain it all to you.

At first I thought about sharing the button I used most in life but then I thought that wouldn’t be a very original thing to talk about as everyday buttons that people use usually consist of something to do with a computer or a television. No one really wants to see those!

Then I thought about ones from clothing or bags, had a little think and realised even my coats don’t have buttons on. So that was a pretty much no go topic. Maybe I’m lazy but…

Sunset trips

This picture just had to be taken on a recent trip to Brighton. I was a little upset that I missed the sunset actually in Brighton and the sun had already started to go down, but this view from the bus made it slightly better.

Ok so bus photos usually look awful and you can see the scratches and imperfections on the glass, which ruins a photo, but this looks as crisp as i think I could have made it.

The contrast of the tall buildings and the low marina make this photo flow. 

Of course the day was great as well, and it’s always nice to just walk along the beach when it’s been a hot day and everyone else has gone but the heat is still there. The little things are always those that bring the biggest smile.

All the best

Char
