Photo a Day: Day Two Hundred & Fifty Seven
Wednesday 15th October
This evening has been such a miserable one, with the rain pouring non stop for most of the afternoon and evening. Unfortunately I had someplace to go and had to venture out in the horrible weather. I thought I would take a photo which summed up the weather perfectly and I think I managed to capture it. I actually really like this photo and think it worked out quite well.

This evening was such a miserable one, it was definitely an evening to cuddle up in pyjamas with a hot drink. In this case I opted for a hot chocolate. I was busy doing some work and this was just the pick me up I needed to help my night along. There’s just something about Autumn and Winter that screams out for cosying up in pyjamas and drinking lots of hot chocolate.

I was out shooting an event in a park in Birmingham this afternoon and once I had finished and on my way home I noticed all of these birds sat in a line over the boating pool. It must be a regular little perch for them as they seem to be quite content in sitting on this barrier across the pool. I thought it made a very interesting composition for the image. I also like the reflection of the birds in the water.

I was in need of a major inspiration boost today, as I felt a bit overwhelmed by all the college work I’ve got to do, I decided to delve into my favourite photographers book to help get my creativity back. I got this book for my birthday a month ago and I absolutely love looking through it from time to time. I think it really helps when I’m feeling creatively blocked.

It arrived!! My beloved little Macbook Pro has been running slower and slower as the years have passed, so I finally decided to take the plunge and splurge on a new iMac, and today was the day it got delivered. Besides the fact it was delivered at 7.50 in the morning, I was ever so excited when I heard the delivery man knock on the door. Now that its all set up and sat on my desk, it just looks so beautiful and I’m so happy I made the decision to buy one.

I have a fairly late college session on a Tuesday evening and on my way back to where I get picked up, I pass by the Wharf Bar and the Brewer’s Fair restaurant. The other week I noticed that they are all lit up really prettily of an evening and took a photo, which turned out really blurred because I was too far away. Well this evening I decided to get a bit closer and was able to take a much better photo which is in focus. I think it actually makes for quite an interesting image especially with the reflection of the lights in the water.

I spent today taking photographs for an advertising campaign I’m working on for this range of chocolate bars. This is one of our college briefs to create an advertisement using several different photographs composited together. Its tricky to have these at the moment because I really want to eat them and try the product but I can’t because I still need to photograph them for the advert.

My new business cards arrived this morning. Since becoming a photographer and graphic designer, I felt I needed a new set of business cards, especially since I’ve changed the name of my business since I designed my other business cards. I’ve utilised some of the photographs I feel are the strongest I did during my HNC for the images and I’m very happy with the results.

Obviously at the moment, it is Eid and therefore one of the houses in our street has got lots of pretty lights hanging outside their house. As I left my house this evening I opened the door and saw the pretty pink and white lights twinkling away and thought they would make an interesting photo of the day.

What better day to make chocolate chip cookies than a wet miserable Monday. I needed to make some cookies for a photo shoot I’m working on this week which is the main reason I made them, but it also gave me something fun to do while the rain was pouring down this afternoon. It was such a nice treat to taste the rejected ones once they were cooked.
