I decided a while back that I wanted to start a 365 photography project Seeing others inspired me to take this step in photography, as i have been at university studying illustration the last three years but leaning more towards photography by the end of my degree and even doing my dissertation on documentary photography.
I wanted the starting day to be a day which meant something to me so I decided that today, the 16th June, which would have been my Mother's birthday who sadly passed away nearly 3 years ago, would be fitting. This project is in her memory and a gift to her.
The main photograph i have chosen today was taken in Central Park in New York city. At the moment I am on a 5 week holiday staying with my Aunty Parvaneh and Uncle Richard. I came here with my partner David and our daughter Rosina. The photography is of a small motor powered boat which people of all ages were sailing around a pond in the middle of the park. It is a peaceful photograph full of tranquility, hence the title. In the middle of the big city there is peace found by all in this wonderful park.
The two photographs below show the bulk of what I did today which was a photo-shoot, which I did for my Uncle Richard, photographing
the filming of a video being made for the Kickstarter website for his product Tricky notebooks. It was a long day but good experience
documenting a film being made.

David had his day off today sadly no two days in a row as he has to have thursday off this week so I can graduate lol. Ro got up at some very early hour so I went and read in the loung with her and let David sleep how nice am I. Once we got ourswelves together we went to town and had a look around the town, getting Ro a suit for her picture on our home made christmas cards hehe money saving ideas everywhere. We then decided to look for a pumpkin which took a while and we finally found one in M and S. Had a nice trip to the park before coming home to do work yay! Was going to make pumpkin pie before realising you would have to cut it open and not carve it so we left that idea and got fish and chips mmm naughty treat. This evening was spent carving pumpkins.
Today's picture is David in the process of carving his pumpkin you will get a full halloween based picture of mine and his lit tomorrow, I am thinking ahead go me.

Today's picture sadly isn't perfect I had a quick moment to take a photograph where waiting outside for the fire service but couldn't go out into the street or the door would lock behind me, once they were gone it was too dark, I wish I had taken photos of the fire men but just didn't get a chance.

I decided to have a relaxing day today, I did intend to get alot more work done which hasn't really happened so I am doing some now. Today was a day of hair cuts though as I got mine done as it very much needed sorting out because the last time it was done it was like garden sheers had been taken to it. Rosina go their first every hair cut just a trim of the fringe to keep it out her eyes, I kept her curls from it as it made me sad to do but I could tell it was bothering her. Then David got his curls cut off and now it is very short again, he now has cold ears apparently.
Today's picture is of the candle we light in memory of my Mummy, it was the only candle we own here but at least it smells good.

Got woken up this morning by not only a baby but not too long after a Sam as well, who joined us in bed for a while before we decided it was time for a cup of tea and to wake the boys up. Had a nice morning chatting with everyone and we even ordered a takeaway breakfast of oat cakes, mine had sausage, egg and cheese in it was amazing. Sadly we had to leave the house of Sam soon after so after saying our Goodbyes Ella drove us to Birmingham where we stopped at Lauren's and nick's for a cup of tea before she kindly drove me to the station. I got back around 3 and spent the afternoon doing some uni work, before David took me out for a meal in honour of my Mummy who passed away three years ago on Tuesday :(
Today's picture I was trying to be creative with cropping it is of the dips which come with the poppadoms.
