Photography and me

I bought my very first camera with the wages from the very first job I ever had I was working as a checkout assistant at a supermarket called Kwik Save which has now closed down, it was back when Jessops had a store on the high street, I had been in a number of times and picked out exactly what I wanted, looked at various articles online to make sure that what I was getting was the best I could afford and started saving, I literally saved all of my wages and bought it within a few months, I was hooked, taking pictures of local landscapes, family members and just things around the house, a few years later I decided to sell that very camera along with all of the equipment that I had collected to go with it, looking back it was a massive mistake, I got very little money for it and lost all of the equipment that I had collected to go with it.

Bad Medicine @ The Tivoli

Bad Medicine billed to support Guns 2 Roses at The Tivoli Venue Buckley and I had the pleasure of capturing this monumental event for the guys, the show opened with the amazing ‘Runaway’ followed by hit after hit.

The venue was packed to the rafters with supporters, the atmosphere was electric Jase and the guys of Bad Medicine put on an amazing show, one that you should most definitely get out to see if they are in your area in the future.

Here are some of the pictures I captured;

Today’s Bedroom Project

This weekend I had a project that I wanted to complete, in my wardrobe unit there is a cupboard that had some shelves where I could put bits and pieces the problem was there wasn’t enough shelves for the things I wanted to keep in there – additionally I had been keeping my phone on charge with my watch next to my bed and I wanted to move these somewhere else.

The other part of the project was this blank wall that I had, when I first moved into the room I put pictures on the wall with Blue Tac (don’t do this) and it left horrible marks where the pictures had been, I wanted to give the room a new lease of life.

Penny Vs Liquids – Science Fair 2017

Next week (wb 13th Feb) is science week at Ruby’s school and the theme this year is change. Last year she asked if she could take part in the science fair but by the time we found out it was too late to do an experiment and write it up however this year we had plenty of time to plan something and create a science fair presentation, we sat down and had a think about what we could do, we decided on finding out how a copper coin is affected by different liquids.

Quorn Fillets

If you read my post from early last week you will know that I picked up a bunch of the Quorn vegan range to try and I said that I would let you know my thoughts, so the Quorn Fillets…what were they like?

quorn-fillet

To be honest, these were by far the worst of the bunch that we purchased, I am not sure what I expected but they were really disappointing, they felt really processed and the outside of the fillet looked unappealing, as for the taste well there was no taste, they had to be complimented with something else to give them any flavour, I don’t know if that was the intention that Quorn had when they made them but for me I would have preferred to just have a fillet I could eat with some rice and that be enough. So unfortunately I won’t be buying these again and can’t really recommend them to you all.

Quorn Fishless Fingers

If you read my post from early last week you will know that I picked up a bunch of the Quorn vegan range to try and I said that I would let you know my thoughts, so the Quorn Fishless Finger…what were they like?

fishless-fingers

These had the biggest hype for me, so many people have been talking about them, saying just how good they were so I was really excited to try them out, just like the nuggets the texture on the outside was identical to a Fish Finger but what about the inside? Some of the Quorn products can be really dense and not very appealing at all but these Fishless fingers were perfect, they tasted amazing the contents of the Finger tasted really good, definitely on my list of products to get again and would recommend them to anyone looking for a Vegan alternative.

Arbonne Moisturizer

I got out of the shower, dried my face pulled the toothbrush from its holder and started to brush my teeth, as I gazed into the mirror I noticed that the top of my head was flaky, I hadn’t noticed it before and had no idea what might be causing it or how to even remedy it, after a little bit of searching both on the usual google searches and a few groups I am a member of on Facebook it seemed to point to the lack of moisturisation, I didn’t even think that I needed to use a moisturiser.

Quorn Nuggets

If you read my post from early last week you will know that I picked up a bunch of the Quorn vegan range to try and I said that I would let you know my thoughts, so the Quorn Nuggets…what were they like?

quorn-nuggets

Appearance wise the nuggets look exactly the same as their omni counterpart, the texture on the outside is the same but what did they taste like? It is an interesting one, I have been Vegan for 18 months now and as I was eating the nugget I tried to compare them to the nuggets I used to eat but I couldn’t do it, I couldn’t recall what the chicken tasted like however, these nuggets did taste really nice, they were not bland like some of the other Quorn products, I had some sweet chilli sauce and beans with mine and would definitely have them again.

Billy No Band Mates @ The Stanton Chirk

Billy No Band Mates played The Stanton In Chirk last night, I hadn’t seen this act before but had seen Kev Williams as he plays guitar for Bad Medicine, there were plenty of popular songs from bands like Muse, Faith No More, Ozzy Osbourne and more with plenty of audience participation – I was there to take some photos and here is what I captured.

Download…Let’s do this

I wasn’t going to Download Festival this year, I decided before the line-up was even announced that I just didn’t want to go this year but as the year has gone on I have got more and more jealous about not going, it is one of the best festivals I have ever been to, System Of A Down are playing the Friday night and I just couldn’t pass up a chance to see them live for what might be the only chance I get in my life.

So…..I booked tickets 🤘
