Sand and Teenage Awkwardness

Submarine looks like a fantastic film. Filled with duffle coats. Teenage awkwardness. Beaches. Brel playing in the background. And sparklers. Now all I have to do is try to find a cinema in the vague region of North Wales that will actually be showing it.
'Good luck' is needed I think.

Fallen Wings

I am really liking the new Lynx advert - the dramatic music, the wonderfully wrinkled faces of the locals, but most of all, the gorgeous dresses worn by the Fallen Angels. Reminds me of the outfit from The Fifth Element...

The Space in between Spaces

Being in a playful mood, I decided that a muck around with my lovely new (new to me anyhow) camera (Nikon D40) was in order.
I can't be in a room if there aren't things that inspire me on the wall.
It just has to be done.
My rather retro boater hat (the theme of St. Trinians is always fun), one of my favourite rings complete with Stephen Fry and finally my Christmas present of a White Owl from my boyfriends mother - what more could you ask for?!

This week has comprised of "The King's Speech" and "Black Swan" - in other words a movie binge of the best kind. The King's Speech was filled with fantastic wall papers and colours, little injections of humour all based around a true story. Black Swan was a mental mind twist that left me scared of my own reflection! Both fantastic and inspiring, but both so totally different.

And a tune for a frosty Welsh Sunday morning would have to be The Lodge by Agalloch.

In Your Place

Wow - second blog in two days. I'm doing well!
I have a habit of writing down things that I see - book titles, websites, musicians that I haven't heard of before - and always mean to follow it up but rarely do.
In Urban Outfitters they had a book called The Selby is in Your Place. It is a book filled with photos and tit-bits of peoples lives who are arty, interesting and inspirational. And I finally went onto The Selby's website.

Another item that had lain forgotten, was the musician James Blake. I can't remember where I first heard his music, but I do rather like the video for his song, Limit To Your Love.

Fresh Beginnings & Toasty Winter Warmers

Here are a few photos of the Christmas period when I went back home. We ended up making in down to Cornwall (just escaping all the snow and black ice) and were held captive for 5 days by bright blue skies, sunshine and snow. It was truly beautiful. As was our unconventional Christmas tree - a large branch of an oak tree that had been cut down due to it being covered in a mound of ivy. Not a problem if you add fairy lights. Instant Christmas!

I have just purchased off my Marverlous Mate Max, his Nikon D40, complete with fisheye lens! I have said farewell to my trusty Canon SX120, an am going to venture out to photograph as much as I can with this new digital SLR! Exciting times ahead!
