These photos were taken in Flumserberg, Switzerland back in February, the first 5 with my Canon Rebel EOD and the rest with my iPhone!
A month ago, my fiancé and I went on holiday to California, to a family wedding in the Napa valley and then to spend time with friends in San Francisco.
The wineries were beautiful. Could of happily spent days wandering around the vines and the gardens. Here are a few of the shots that I took whilst there.
In mid-May Tim and I popped down to North Devon in the UK for a post-engagement/pre-birthday catch up with my family. We spend Saturday on Saunton Sands hanging out on the beach. Thankfully the sun had finally come out after a month of constant rain. We had an awesome BBQ and frolicked in the sand dunes. My nieces were very willing, photogenic subjects for me!
The last week has been beautiful in Chicago Mid 20′s (mid 70′s for you Fahrenheit folk) and gorgeous sun. Thankfully Tim and I made it out to the park this afternoon after doing lots of sorting of our apartment ready to move in a couple of weeks. One cobbled together awesome picnic from Fox and Obel later and we were ON.
Pictures taken in PFC Milton Olive Park by Navy Pier in Chicago.
A few weeks ago I bought a Groupon for a photography class on Composition in Chicago through the Digital Photo Academy. We spent the morning walking around Millenium Park looking for shots. It was a beautiful day for it. Didn’t feel like I got as much out of it as the other two classes I’ve done. But it was still nice.
Here are a few of mine:
As many of you may (or may not!) know, last Christmas Tim got me a DSLR. I have since spent the year attempting to become a bit less amateur! Thanks to Groupon I have been on a couple of day-long workshops and they have helped a lot. I haven’t got out to practice as much as I would of liked, but I quite liked these photos I took at the carols. Realised that I have learnt quite a lot this year, always in manual mode now!
There will be Carols at Cloud Gate every Friday from now until Christmas. Well worth braving the cold.
Hope you like some of them!
