Summer’s slumber has begun and Autumn winds are rolling in.
The land falls into darkness earlier and as I write this I stare at the rain storm outside, feeling the chill it has brung.
Sweater season has started and I can’t help but look back on summer’s wonders wishing there was still a bit more time between now and Winter.
I do love Autumn, the bright colours, the burning sunsets, the mushrooms… but my heart belongs to Summer.
Summer, a time of early morning sunrays through my window, grass between my toes, tickling my feet as I walk through fields barefooted. The warmth that embraces me as I step outside, like greeting a good friend whom you haven’t seen in a long time.
This summer was magical; we went on roadtrips, woodland walks almost daily, and I did get to see a good friend, whom I’d not seen in a long time.
It had been the best Summer I’d experienced in a while.
But, something wasn’t translating… The images I took, they were pretty but they didn’t feel how I felt taking them.
I’m not one to play too much with my edits, but this Summer, I decided to try something new – on a whim.
I’m glad I did.
These are some of the photographs I took during this year’s Summer, I wanted them to feel as magical and as whimsical as I felt whilst taking them! And I thought I’d share them with you!
These edits taught me not to be so scared of pushing my boundaries with Photography; to enjoy not only looking at other’s works who have a whimsical feel but to allow myself to step out of my comfort zone and allow my own photos to feel the same.
