On Monday it was cold and windy, I had to wear my winter coat and scarf. Today is Sunday, it’s truly summer outside! I kind of like this all seasons in a week thing. As you might know, I’m not a big fan of the heat, but once in a while, an hour or two in the sunshine feels nice. And what better thing to do on a beautiful day than go and visit a botanic garden? I live in Leicester for almost 3 years now and I knew there was one somewhere close, but I imagined it being tiny and not worth going to. Until I saw Haarkon‘s photos.
My verdict? Perfect choice for a revision break or city routine gateway – beautiful garden with a great number of various greenhouses, only hour walk (15min drive) away from DMU campus. Entry is free, except on special event days. I suggest walking, the houses around the area are a piece of art worth admiring!
For quite some time now, I’ve been thinking whether or not it’s time to invest in a proper camera. Even 300 YouTube video’s and zillion google searches couldn’t help. My university offers a great thing called AV Loans, however, the camera I wanted to try was booked. Maybe because of the bank holiday the only one left was Nikon D3000.
Me, qualified cameras expert, decided that it was an old and most likely not a great model. I tried taking some photos at home, but every shot looked not as I wanted it to look. Blame the camera, right? Nope. Thank you, Jo_Media for explaining that it was actually me, or to be more accurate, my inability to use correct settings; and for teaching me and Greta the basics of professional photography.
As much as I love my iPhone camera, I could get used to carrying around something less limited. Take a look at some of the photos I took today. Baby steps, but I like to think they’re in the right direction.
P.S. Just a reminder that I kindly ask not to use/repost my photos without prior permission, thanks!
