Summer Afternoons

A short but sweet post today, with a couple of film snap-shots. Taken mostly in the moment, walking from A to B, inbetween shops or before taking the tube (still posing a little though). I've been using our film camera a lot recently, choosing it over my digital for family days out. I've been looking at some new lenses, I'd love to see how my film pictures would turn out on a wider angle lens, especially since I plan on taking it with me to Canada in September. My mind has been spinning trying to decide on which lens to get, so many technical aspects you have to take in to account to find the right one. I only recently discovered that our Canon EOS 700D has a cropped sensor - a detail that is not to be overlooked when looking for a wide-angle lens for landscape photography.

Life has been busy recently. I realize now this post is going to be a jumble of thoughts of the last few weeks. I seem to be stuck in tired-and-a-little-grumpy Summer mode. This is my first ever summer away from home. For the first two decades of our lives, we followed a schedule. We had school & uni exams, then it was finally the summer holidays where we could relax, recharge, and think ahead. I think one of the biggest shocks of finishing university and working full time is no longer having those few weeks of summer bliss. (Queue eye roll when someone says welcome to the real world) It's more of a physical shock than anything. It's like my body is waiting for it, expecting a period of recharge and wondering why it's being denied it. Sorry mind and body, you're going to have to keep waking up at 6am every day for a little longer.

With that being said, I am rather enjoying my Saturdays and week-day evenings in London, when the weather permits it. Going to the cinema with friends after work, browsing the shops during the golden hour and of course discovering new cute cafes. (Eager to return to The Drury on Drury Lane). Although I'm on a very tight budget at the moment, I'm still making the most of my free time. You can't deny your mind a little escape from the work routine. Go out. Go to a museum. Go see that film. Your mind & body will thank you for it.

Sadly I wasn't able to take part in the Fashion Karussell this month, but I wanted to share everyone's posts. The topic this month was midi skirts and dresses, which I'm so sad to have missed out on as I have been searching for the perfect midi dress for so long now! I love everyone's looks and have shared the links below for you all to check out if you're interested!

Short but sweet post today, hopefully the next one will be a little more upbeat! In other news, I'm finally seeing Baby Driver at the cinema tonight, and this week-end is London Film & Comic Con which I am in no way shape or form prepared for. Have a lovely end of the week everyone!
