CHRISTMAS TIME










Sharing some of my favourite Christmas images of the season.  And yes I must admit, black can be very festive too!

Hope you've all got your Xmas shopping done, I still have a few more little bits and pieces to get, and I'm hoping to do so before the weekend.  The menu's planned ... so to speak, and the spirits are high.  Looking forward to a happy festive time with family and friends!

Wishing you all an early happy festive season too, celebrating and enjoying time with loved ones but also making time for reflecting and remembering just why we are celebrating.  Lets not forget

'FOLLOW ME'


Inspiring!


"Russian photographer Murad Osmann has been attracting quite a bit of attention this past week on the Internet for his images. No, it’s not his professional photos of people and places, but rather a clever project he has been putting together on his Instagram account.
It’s titled “Follow Me,” and features a unique perpective: each shot is from Osmann’s point of view, and shows the back of his girlfriend Nataly Zakharova’s body as she leads him by the hand through various locations around the world.

The locations include some of the world’s most famous and exotic places, ranging from Big Ben in London and Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland Hong Kong to a waterfall in Bali.
The project started during a vacation to Barcelona in 2011. Zakharova became annoyed that Osmann was so occupied with his camera and started pulling him by the hand… but it didn’t stop Osmann from snagging a shot. That shot would spark a project that has now spanned over a year and many different locations.
Regarding the look of the images: Osmann snaps the photos with his iPhone or DSLR, adds various effects to them using Camera+, and then uploads them to Instagram.
He’s based in Moscow, but it’s his job that has taken Osmann around the world. He’s the executive producer of the film company Hype Productions. Although the images make it seem as though Osmann spends his life satisfying his wanderlust, he typically only reserves a few days from each trip to explore with his girlfriend."

SCANDINAVIAN INSPIRATION









Today I'm sharing a mixed pot of Scandinavian wintry images.

I think if I had to choose a favorite I will have to choose them all!

Whites and woods and greys creates that gentle winter feel of cosy days and nights sipping hot chocolate around a roaring fire. 

I'd love to experience a true Scandinavian winter.... The plan is just so for 2015....

Have a lovely weekend everybody
