Mindlessly chatting to my friend on the phone as we tried to think of something to do, I flicked through 5 or so years worth of photos on my computer. Amongst exclamations of 'god, denim sandals?!?', 'did I lose my tweezers?!?', 'wow I was skinny!!' and 'oooh that's a pretty landscape' I started to think about my favourite photos. I am by no means a talented photographer, but I love to capture moments of beauty when I see them. I typed up a whole post about how a bit of colour manipulation seems to work with magical powers on a non-descript, or awful photo.
Here is one I particularly loved and almost forgot I'd taken:
But what of the other moments I've snapped since 2003 (when my archive starts)?
This is the earliest photo, which I took on a trip to a Living Rainforest somewhere in England. I absolutely adore this plant, which has graced my computer screen many a time. Some people argue that colours which complement each other so beautifully in nature transition equally well into fashion, but I personally don't go near green and pink. What do you think?
This photo I took of myself in my posery stage circa 2006. I was messing about with my enormous tangle of hair pre-haircut. Somehow, I think this one ended up working with a gothicy mood...
I can't believe I posted a photo of myself on here... why don't I remember doing that?
This is possibly my favourite photograph. I took it in Turkey this time last year, at an art exhibition. Do you have your own personal favourites?
