I love taking photographs, It’s an addiction which can also be a curse (especially when I should be weeding instead of taking photographs!) I do believe however, that everyone needs to take photographs, they don’t have to be brilliant, in focus or even straight, but cameras are there to capture life in all its glory. How else are we going to remember holidays, faces of friends and relatives, pets and those childhood years. You can always delete but you can never go back in time and capture after all!
My allotment is my happy place, a place to escape and simply do what I love. I spend half of my time there and I must say that I enjoy every second of it. It’s not neccessarily what a ‘normal’ 24 year old would be doing during the weekends but I love it, and thats more than enough for me.
I have to admit that I get very distracted with photography (and cups of tea for that matter) I often find myself weeding and at the same time finding a new viewpoint of my allotment that I had never seen before! I like to photograph my favourite things as well as self portraits and I may even dig my macro lens out for some close-ups. Maybe it’s the curse of being a blogger or having a creative Dad, or maybe it’s because I like making scrapbooks so much? I do know however that in years to come, when I’m sitting with the grandchildren I can tell them stories and show them photographs of my little lottie which will hopefully inspire another generation of gardeners.
