Day by Day {days 201 to 207}

October 16th, 2011

I’ve been pretty bad over the past month or so at posting my ‘Day by Day’ project, but hopefully I’m back on track! Here are days 201 to 207……..

Day 201: Whilst having a massive clear out I found these roller blades at the back of the wardrobe. I bought them when I was about 18/19 and I can’t believe I still have them! Ian and I used to go rollerblading after that though when we first got together – not these days though – my hips aren’t up to it! God, I’m getting old! :0)

Day 202: Another find during the clear out. My wedding shoes. I had every intention of ‘wearing them again’, so I had them dyed black. Have I worn them? Errrr, that would be a big, fat no. They were still in the box at the bottom of the wardrobe.

Day 203: In the changing rooms at H&M, I thought this image of myself would be a good photo of the day. They have those mirrors that are in the corner and then one big mirror on a wall – this was taken looking into the big mirror. I’m not so sure about how squashed my nose is though up against the camera.

Day 204: I hate spiders but love how their webs look in the rain. So pretty.

Day 205: I’m rubbish at looking after plants. Although I’ve had this Peace Lily for several years it’s not looked it’s best for a while! Ian finally pulled all the dead leaves off it and has been looking after it. It’s now starting to sprout some very green healthy looking leaves :0)

Day 206: As a photographer, I get my inspiration from all sorts of different places. Today when I was in Tesco, I saw the latest Q magazine. It was the 25th anniversary edition and they are celebrating by having 25 different covers to choose from.  Foo Fighters are my favourite band, so when I saw Dave Grohl’s face staring back from the shelf, it was a no brainer – I bought it straight away. It also prompted a question I put out over Twitter & FB: If you could photograph anyone in the world, who would it be? Mine would have to be Dave Grohl. Such a talented guy. I’ve been a fan back since the days of Nirvana.

Day 207: I’ve been getting really giddy about Christmas lately, so when I saw this pink flocked reindeer decoration, I had to buy it! I think maybe the giddyness is getting too much!
