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

My mums taste

Growing up in a house with all sorts of creative projects and random pieces of art scattered around. From posters that my dad was working on to children’s books coming home with my dad. It has always been great to not worry about a blank wall. It doesn’t stay blank for long! 

I’ve always been inspired by art, photography and advertising. I suppose my parents tastes have influenced me the most because that’s what I was brought up around. I have been lucky enough to have been brought up with photography from a very young age, and my dad sitting me down behind him and teaching me skills on photoshop whilst my mum probably thought I was in bed. Maybe that’s why I feel that I edit photos best with a little background music and a tired mind. After all a tired mind goes on instinct, rather than thinking too much. That’s what I love about photography, when it feels right it often is. 

This lovely hanging wall art was sitting on my mums wall one day and it caught my eye. Sometimes my parents have questionable tastes, but sometimes I feel that they get it so so right. That’s the beauty of art; no two people, see or feel the same about a piece. It’s not a science and there is no one right answer, and you can’t get it wrong. 

A great painting can bring you joy, happiness or even sorrow. Even a photo! 

All the best
