Hello and welcome to my page!
I’m a down to earth, yoga loving thirty-something Irish woman living in Manchester. I was born and raised in lovely Donegal and my earliest memories are of contemplating the beauty of the countryside around me. I spent my youth exploring forests, fields, old abandoned farm houses and climbing trees! Nature was and still is my first real passion.
I was a dreamer and loved to draw, paint and write. I lost this when I was a teenager and have greatly missed being able to indulge in my creative side which had always been second nature to me. I have tried to begin again but I end up frustrated that I cannot get past the block.
My OH suggested that I try photography which I discounted for a while but I have discovered that I have a passion for taking pictures. I bought a Canon G12 Powershot a year ago and have loved getting to grips with it. I have always learned things better through trial and error so that is my general approach but I do some reading of the manual and online demo’s every now and again!
Although nature is my passion, I can see beauty in most things and tend to take in every little detail around me. Through photography, I hope to be able to express my creative side, allow myself to grow through that expression and maybe even learn some new things along the way, both about photography and myself.
I very much enjoy looking at photos and art here and having a glimpse of how other’s see the world around them.
