Photography spotlight #1 Colourful

I love colour. I love rainbows of colour.

I have a whole board of colourful pins, which i look at when i’m feeling down.

This week’s Photo spotlight is to take/ find an old picture of something colourful. Here is mine.

Photo spotlight

The last task of blogging 101 was to create a weekly feature on your blog.  Lots of people jumped to the task straight away but as travel blogger, also speaking to other travel bloggers,  I struggled to think of something which would fit with my theme and be flexible.  So I have come up with a photography spotlight.  It will just be a chance for me and anyone who wants to join to share their favourite travel photos. Past or present. I may go with a theme for some weeks but this is still developing.

I will post a theme if there is one on a Sunday night. This week we will go with colour, I love taking pictures of displays of colourful items, sometimes laid out in rainbows and sometimes just my favourite colours grouped together.

Please post to your own blog and leave a link in the comments if you want to share a picture. I will do a round up of the week the week after.

Please share your favourite picture,  include more in your post if you like, but highlight the favourite for all to see.

I hope you enjoy and get inspired.

Daily prompt

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Through the Window.”

During my travels i spent many hours looking through windows of Buses, Planes, Trains, Cars and Boats.

Travelling companion

Ashley bear was a lovely present brought back from a residential trip my class and Teaching Aid (TA) went one and i was left behind. I decided that he should go travelling with me and have tried to take pictures with him in as many places as i could in Barnaby bear style. Below is a little picture diary of his (and my) travels.

The thing i miss most when travelling is that neat line of books upon a shelf, books i am waiting to read, ones i love and my current reading. I seem to be a book hoarder. I can find a pile of books anywhere i go. Recently i have moved from a hostel back into a shared house. Up until now my to be read (TBR) pile has been getting in the way, taking up space on top of the chest of drawers in our room.

In the way TBR books

Flicking through a magazine at work i noticed super cheap, small book cases we can use as bedside tables from Warehouse. I headed over after work and got us two.

A home for a brew, my books and journal

Now my books (and my morning/evening cuppa) have a home.

As a traveller of the world i find inspiration everywhere, being crafty, i love to keep this inspiration in my travel journal. I am a nightmare for leaflets, stickers …… oh i love stickers…… labels, packets anything i can cut up and stick down with glue or my very pretty wash tape. My travelling partner in crime shakes his in despair some days when i get excited about buying stickers from a location we have been to.
