Spring has sprung

Why hello there! Sorry for the absence; it's been a long Easter holiday over here. About a week ago the weather turn more spring-like, which made all the difference. I don't know how it is for you, but when I find myself in the middle of winter it always feels like spring will never come. And then one day it does, and it feels unreal, like how could it possibly be sunny and warm?! Huh?? These days spring is my favourite season; for years it was autumn, but now the season of re-birth and hope is the one I most cherish. So, in London, there's really no better place than Kew Gardens to witness the explosion of new life, or growth I should say... Anyway, we went there with friends last weekend and it was just beautiful. The kids and the grown ups loved it, and I can't wait to go there again. I'm promising myself that we must go there during every season of the year from now on.

  1. Ha! I have a very similar reaction to yours... mad, innit? (then again, the first 20 years of my life were spent in a Mediterranean climate...) Let's rejoice, go out and play in nature, hooray!

    1. But what about summer? Not a fan? I hope we get a good one this year, I'm looking forward to eating all our meals outside again. Fingers crossed. And yes, Kew Gardens is a must! It's so beautiful.

  5. Mostly all your pics are on digital yeah?
    Which camera are you using and how are you editing? They look like film!
    I think I should start using my proper digital camera more..

    1. Yes, they are. I shoot it on my Canon 6D which I love. I've got a tiny 40mm pancake lens on it, so it's really light to carry. I edit them through VSCO (through Lightroom) which makes them look nice and film-like :)

      I think I've figured out the whole film vs digital dilemma: I've just got to make sure I print the digital stuff, once every two months and actually DO IT. At least when I shoot digital I know what I'm getting, if you know what I mean. I was thinking of buying yet another film camera, and then realised that actually I should just stop being lazy and just fill up some memory sticks! Duh. xxx
