everytime he would eventually reach the coastline and the wild sea told him he could go no further

Eventually they found each other

A Stroll With Miss Ce-Ce

Hello again beautiful ocean! It's lovely to be back in Pisky land :) I took some time out of seaside frolicking and ice cream tasting to move some of my things into my new place at Bath. I'll talk about those later, because I don't yet feel like its time to settle my head into a brand new house and chapter of my life when there's still some precious weeks of summer left to enjoy. However on my excursion, I had a bit of a wobbly moment with my creativity and did a mini fairy shoot with Fashion Blogger Jessica Ce-Ce. I was so desperately trying to avoid incorporating my cliché love of fairytales into photography as I have done absolutely to death, to appease my photography lecturers who don't approve :P However I slipped up, I couldn't help myself. I was like a ravenous cakeaholic deprived of battenburg, and so voila; an evenings stroll on beautiful Newton Park campus photographing beautiful Jessica for her Princess edition fashion blog post. (Modelling a familiar dress belonging to yours truly, from Miss Selfridges) 

I really love portraiture, I've been searching desperately to find myself photographically all summer but Im struggling to capture the world in any other way than how I see it. But apparently its wrong, the way I see it?
My brain must be broken... 
I need to think outside the box, but it seems like I live in a triangle

The above shot I'm really happy with. The sun was on its way down, and the pictures were soft and over exposed. I love shadows as much as I love light. The same way I love the moon as I love the sun ♥

                              I'm honoured to have friends with such beautiful smiles ♥

This above image is a "Behind the scenes" shot that George captured :) I was using an Ashai Pentax K1000 with a 50mm lens 

August has nearly left us, as all things do they eventually pass. Kings come and go, city's fall and summer's fade. 
It's up to us to make them remembered. ♥

The Girl Who Wanted To Be A Mermaid

                                    She gave her life to an element she was born into 



                                                and at that moment, all her troubles disappeared 
                              The water washed them away, like it washed the sand from her toes
                                                     and soothed the pain of dry land 

The Sound of Gulls calling was an austere and ghostly lullaby 
but one that any child born by the ocean will recognise and cherish 
some believe them to be the ghosts of lost mariners
so you should never kill a gull
for it will bring you bad luck

We braved the collossal hike to Lowlands. One of the most beautiful parts of Cornwall. You can guarantee that if its hard to access, then it will be free of those pesky emmets and peaceful and probably more beautiful. To be on Lowlands feels to be on a desert island, a moody lonely and austere but beautiful desert island. It's a special place.

It was sunny first of all this day, but the cloud and rain appeared mysteriously, but I really liked this. I actually don't do enough moody grey photography, and I think that Cornwall is a rustic and untameable grey land, and to portray the sea this way is possibly more real, and truthful. Even if mermaids don't exist... and I guess that's kind of the point of the story. The Girl who wanted to be a mermaid... the girl who wanted mermaids to exist. There's truth in that story. I think maybe everyone wants to be someone or something they're not at some point in their life, so perhaps this story idea has symbolism somehow... Maybe I just over think things.

I've actually done little editing in photoshop, I wanted them to be dull and washed and the tones to be soft, I wanted to work on the greys and the austereness of the weather.

I'm sorry for being an awful subject, but it was fun collaberating with George. I did take quite a few of him, and there's definitely some bloopers I'll be sure to share with you :)

Alas I cannot Swim

It's a lie actually
 I can swim really
It just happens to be the name of a song I really love :)
Its a secret hidden song
 On the end of a very lovely album

Alas. Earwax


Anyway :P i figure i live in a county surrounded by sea on every side, where no village takes more than about 15 minutes to reach the coast. 
i love the sea
no seriously, if i could sit in it all day long and be a mermaid, i really would.

"There's a life across the river, but alas I cannot swim.
I'll live my life regretting that I never jumped in"

I didn't realise til afterwards that the kid in the background was doing a star jump :P

               I really love the greys and blues and silvers :) 
For a second there... I almost missed winter
                   But then I came back to my senses. 
Although in reality we can find something beautiful out of             every season

Have some barnacles for breakfast

                       enjoy :)
