Photo a Day: Day One Hundred & Sixty Nine
Saturday 19th July
Another Saturday evening spent doing college work. After getting my head around which photographs I want to put into my photo book, I now need to sit down and work out the layout and order that I want to put them in. This called for another session with my sketchbook, doodling some thumbnails which I started doing this evening.

Today was our last full day of the holiday and because the weather was so beautiful and sunny, we had a lazy relaxing sunbathing kind of day instead of going anywhere or doing anything. So the photo is of the sky because I can’t remember the last time I saw a cloudless sky which was just so blue. I also like the gradient thats going on in the photo.

It just wouldn’t be a holiday if I hadn’t of had at least one Mr Whippy Ice cream, and it was just as delicious as I remembered from my childhood. As it was such a hot day today, I had to eat it quite quickly before it all melted over my hand (which it did) but at least I managed to get a photo before it all melted!!

Still on a bit of a texture kick at the moment, and spotted this huge pile of bricks on this evenings stroll. I think they’d make quite a cool backdrop for a photo shoot or something, but either way I liked the patterns and textures of the bricks and the different tones and hues in each of the bricks.

Friday 11th July
As part of our summer work for college, we’ve been given a brief in which to create a photo book showcasing our HNC photography year. Personally I’m really looking forward to this as it utilises both my graphic skills and my photography ones. Anyway tonight I have been starting the difficult task of choosing which images are my strongest to add to my book. Quite a hard but fun task!

Another sky one for today but this time from the evening. I noticed that the sky and the clouds looked quite atmospheric and I liked the different tones of blue within the sky. I was quite lucky to get the street at a quiet moment as I think this adds to the mysterious atmospheric feel of the photo.

Today’s photo comes from the first level of the Blackpool Tower. This level has a glass walkway which allows you to look down at the street view below and take photos etc. I thought it was pretty cool. I did pop up to the higher levels to look at the views but thought this was worthy of photo of the day.

Today I popped off for a short holiday break up in Blackpool. Once at our caravan park, I noticed this huge deckchair just outside the reception area, and thought it would make a cool photo of the day, as there such a quintessential part of the British seaside, and put me into holiday mode. I would have climbed up and had a seat if it hadn’t have been raining at the time.

Saturday evening has become baking night in the Wade household it seems, as we make a pudding to have after our Sunday roast and this week was no exception. We had a few extra raspberries left over from my dad’s allotment this week, so I was busy looking for easy recipes that included raspberries and stumbled across a simple looking one for raspberry and white chocolate blondies. And here’s the finished result. They were very tasty!!

Just a bit of light reading. I’m going to try and save these for a holiday, as they are most definitely three books that would be suited as holiday reading. I’ve always enjoyed escaping into a good book and couldn’t resist buying a few new books when they were on such a good deal.
