Plane views from the last fortnight (approaching Bodø and London)
Here are some phone pics of my sleeping arrangement for the past few days (living outdoors is the best)
I am back from Madrid and I already miss it. I did some nice home things to distract myself (eating good food/waking up in time for the good morning light)
I wanted to do a post to remind everyone that I am still alive even though I haven’t posted anything for two weeks. After living in Madrid I have spent much less time on the internet and a lot more time having fun (I think I have turned into perhaps the happiest boy in the entire world so it feels only right to put up this selfie that was taken when I was convinced I was the saddest boy in the whole world)
I am going to be doing quite a bit of travelling in June and July, last time I did a little holiday I took a lot of photos like this for instagram, so if you would like to keep up with me while I travel around Spain and Norway, you should follow me!
I don’t know why I have started to only post diptychs, its completely unintentional
Rhododendron season is nearly over but don’t worry guys I have taken enough photographs to last us until next spring
Here is a photo that I put on Instagram a little while ago but forgot to share on here. It’s a book I was commissioned to make by the Newlyn Art Gallery, it’s quite twee but also a bit fun. I’m currently working on setting up a little online print shop to help me fund my degree, so it will be up there and available to buy once the finishing touches have been made!!!
Anonymous asked: what did you write your dissertation on and any useful tips?
Hello! I dont really want to write what I ended up doing my dissertation about because it is really embarrassing and not something I want to relive/make more people aware of than strictly necessary. All I will say is that I wrote my dissertation on something that I wasn’t truly passionate about and it was easy to tell. I got an ok grade for it but I know that if I had written about something I really cared for I would have been far happier.
My only useful tip is to not play it safe and tackle something just because there is a lot to read up on it. You will have a really fun time if you think of something a bit unique that you can be passionate about.
Another not-so-useful tip for reaching your word count is mentioned in this previous post!
Anonymous asked: what if I love you?
Oh this is a strange one!!
I can only advise you by telling you what I do when I think I am in love with someone which is to push it to the part of my mind that is filled with all the things I don’t want to think about like that time I got stuck in a top floor window and had to be rescued by people from the street with ladders whilst wearing only my underpants (!!!!!) or the day before yesterday when I drove my car into a pole because I passed someone cute on the street. Then try not to think about your feelings ever ever ever until maybe they go away
That is the way I deal with crushing on people but if you are perhaps not as awkward as me and you look like you could maybe have been in baywatch you should probably just hmu duh!!!!!
Anonymous asked: What point and shoot do you use? Also what kind of film do you prefer?
Hello you have been very direct with these two questions I almost didn’t answer this until I remembered that I now have a fun link on my blog to all the bad advice I have ever given to people on the internet (fun for me probably not for anyone else)
The point and shoot that I use is a Contax T2 and let me tell you it is GREAT if you are as accident-prone as I am because it is made of titanium! I would recommend it but it is also one of the more expensive point and shoots. The T2 lets you control the aperture and there is the option to manually focus too which I have never needed but is quite neat. I like a lot of the photos I have taken with a some standard charity shop cameras so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I had a Yashica T4 and it was very disappointing.
I am going to reveal myself to be a terrible photographer right now because I don’t pay enough attention to care about what film I use. I have used film that I bought in bulk for 30p a roll and film from poundland and I have used expensive film and I honestly still struggle to tell the difference once the images have been properly scanned. When I went on my last trip I mostly used Fuji Superia 200 which was quite nice but maybe not as warm as the Poundland film which I think is called Agfa Vista Plus. Talking about film is a bit boring
