Day 55: My Obsession

Standard

This was taken the day after I came home from Mallorca and before I went into hospital. I had started unpacking and I noticed just how many shoes I actually have. And this isn’t even half of them! I adore shoes and have pretty much every colour, shape and style going. These are all of my flat shoes, as they are the only thing I can wear now, and I also have a huge collection of heels. Before I got bad with my disease, I used to wear heels pretty much everyday and I really do miss wearing them. As daft as it sounds, hey were part of my visual identity in a way, and not being able to wear them anymore really upset me and still does a bit now. But hey, at least I still have an ample amount of fabulous flats to keep me going πŸ™‚

Day 53: Graffiti and Fireplaces

Standard

These were once again taken in Palma on my last day before flying home. The first was taken in a gorgeous cafe called Cappuccino where I’d had to retreat into due to it hail stoning! That’s right, it was actually hail stoning in Mallorca! At Easter! It had been drab weather all day and was rather chilly, but all of a sudden the heavens opened and pelted it down! I had to wheel myself towards the cafe whilst trying to cover all my cameras whilst also getting pummelled with really quite painful hail stones! It was wonderful to make it inside and find an empty seat by the fire, so I got myself a very large coffee and stayed there until the weather improved. It was lovely πŸ™‚

The second is later on in the day once the weather improved greatly and is of my brother posing next to some of the fantastic graffiti in Palma. This was in a really artistic area and it was full of galleries, all of which I eagerly checked out, and had lots of very artistic and tastefully placed graffiti that I continued to capture until I left. I adore it when it’s done well πŸ™‚

Day 29: Razzer Painting

Standard

Β This my little brother Gareth, or Razz/Razzer as I call him. Don’t ask me why I call him those names, I can’t remember when or how they actually came about :p Anyway, he’s an incredible artist with such a weird, unusual style and is almost never not drawing or painting something. This is normally how I find him when I come home from university, sat at the table surrounded by his art stuff and just wacking out something so bonkers and awesome easy as you like. It amazes me. So I thought it’d be nice to capture him in his art mode and show a sneak peak of a section of his latest piece πŸ™‚

Day 27: Ruby Red Slippers

Standard

Β This was me yesterday on the way to university, utterly shattered. Early mornings and I are not friends. I wasn’t even going to take this at first, I’d just got my camera out to check how many polaroids I had left, then ended up looking through it and liking the shot πŸ™‚ I love it when things like that happen πŸ™‚

Day 23: Wall of Colour

Standard

This was taken on my first day in London this Wednesday. I was there on a uni photography trip and it was amazing! This was a stall of colourful, eye catching little bags and purses which I knew would translate wonderfully on polaroid πŸ™‚
