2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi

I just saw the BBC’s advert for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi = trailer for a really cheesy Twilight take of Game of thrones! When looking for images for this post I came across these very peculiar images of Clare Balding, Hazel Irvine and Jonathan Edwards. They most certainly have had a dose of the Twilight vampire effect. I don’t really understand why they felt they had to overly process the stills of the presenters. I’m not totally hating on the ad but for me it doesn’t beat the efforts of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

Mythical Beasts

I received this gorgeous print of Mythical Beasts from my brother and sister in law this Christmas by Vancouver- based artists Sarah Edmonds and Tammy Lawrence from their studio Banquet Atelier & Workshop and thought it was too good not to share.

5 months. Gulp.

In 5 months I shall hopefully be graduating from a photography degree, yay! But like so many panic is setting in and I dreading the inevitable, what now? Gulp. My tutor reminded me of this video of Alan Watts last week. The first time I saw it I found it hugely inspiring and that seems to still resonate in me. Although I have a feeling that I have perhaps chosen a career path to self-destructive financial woes, which does fill me with dread,  I ultimately hope to be happy and I am excited about my creative future. A geography teacher I had at school once asked me what I wanted to do when I left school. I replied saying that  I’d like to go to Art College and study photography. With no sarcasm in her tone she replied to my answer with, “ohh, that’s an easy option isn’t it”… That conversation has stuck with me, partly because of her sheer ignorance and partly because I detested the woman. So take a moment to watch this inspiring video and remember if all else fails we could all become geography teachers, I hear that’s an easy job option 😉
