A place...

There is a place where I feel I can escape and envelope myself in. Other than in the presence of the people I love and dearly care for, other than the beats and throbbing sounds of music, other than the fictional universe I tend to get myself lost in.I try to find the time in which I can just explore the world and just be at one with myself, despite what maybe going on in my life. I believe no ones life is perfect and mine isn't exactly the best, but we all need our special places and mine is through the lens of my camera. 

My learning and love for photographing the world around me has vastly grown over the past two years and if it wasn't for my best friend Katie Ellis, my sister Claire Johnson, and my parents I don't know where I'd be. It's not because of their ongoing support or their strengthening words in times of need, it's because of who they are and what effect they have on me. They are my light at the end of the tunnel.

Anyway enough seriousness. These photos were taken yesterday whilst venturing out in the rain, with an umbrella in one hand and camera in the other. I braved the weather and captured the rain droplets on these radiant flowers and plants. 

 What's Your Special Place?

I love the way you have perfectly captured the way the rain gently fell on these flowers and the incredible detail that goes in to each picture. you really have captured this scene beautifully, congrats :)

Well, mine is on stage in a cutie costume singing and preforming in front of tones of people :)xx

Thank you Claire :') and 'being on stage' as your special place, is certainly a place I know you personally love to go.
