My weekend in pictures

Hello all!

Apologies for the lack of update, I have been incredibly busy. I was, however, also busy taking pictures. Here are a few snaps I have taken the past few days:


This pretty candle was on the table at Bader restaurant on Ladypool Road, in Birmingham. It was a nice restaurant - very busy, but with tasty Lebanese food. I felt this image captured the overall ambience of the place - soft lighting and colourful Middle Eastern vibes.


Pink water! Hubby, my brother and sister-in-law and I all went to Alton Towers, a theme park. The grounds were beautiful but it was a bit difficult to capture lots of pictures because we were either queueing up for rides or walking to and from parks (and eating...and avoiding ducks that came really close...)

Buckingham Palace

Green Park lake area

Queen Victoria Memorial
Some pictures from my awesome day in London with my friend, who I have known since we were in nappies. We see each other once a year (if that) but keep in touch all the time and are really close! I had some fun editing these pictures.

BTW - I have got rid of GIMP. My laptop started adjusting the volume and loading apps without me touching them, freaking the hell out of me, but now that I've got rid of it my laptop seems fine! DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT! 

I am going to the Lake District with my in laws this coming weekend, uber looking forward to it. I'm taking my dad's Nikon, so watch this space!

  1. GIMP can't be that bad, maybe you just need to learn how to use it?

    1. I quite liked GIMP, it was just the effect it seemed to have on my laptop! :)

  2. How did you get the hint of red in the Buckingham Palace photo?

    1. I edited it afterwards - I changed the saturation, lighting and tint of the picture :) before then it was quite dark!
