Going outside with my camera is a lot like walking up and opening my eyes. It's all about perspective. The lens you look through can completely change your surroundings: "You can rarely change how somebody thinks or acts, you can only change how you choose to react to those actions." - A loose quote from … Continue reading It’s All About Perspective.
Travelling to Scotland last Sunday marked the beginning of a much larger adventure for me. Firstly (and obviously the most important), this trip is the first of mine and Harry's together. It is (I think) the most time we have spent together in the same space and what better way to define a relationship than … Continue reading Scotland | The Beginning
Sometimes it helps to just write things down or hear something aloud, and in the midst of quickly approaching applications for agencies in Australia I have misplaced my sense of direction a little. This morning I was talking to one of my friends here in Cardiff and well, it's nice to be reminded that even … Continue reading Amy, Blogger.

Today I got stopped and questioned by a Chinese police officer, what did you do? I was also asked for selfies with three different people, the last being an adorable little girl, a child who actually seemed to like me, a miracle. Selfies with strangers are a regular event here it seems, honestly I am … Continue reading Forbidden City
Yesterday we went to Tiananmen Square, and even without the horrific historical context this trip was enough to put anyone on edge; the place was crawling with security, guards patrolling, bag and body scans at each entrance and an air to the place that made us both uneasy to just be there; like us, and … Continue reading Tiananmen Square & Beihai Park
Can we just take a second to notice how crazy and borderline offensive some street food markets are in Beijing... Didn't stop us trying a scorpion or two ourselves though. Wangfujing Street:
Two parks, one terrifyingly rickety roller-coaster and a tasty Chinese doughnut = one very productive and exciting day. Chaoyang district and Tuanjiehu Park: Chaoyang Park:
