 One of my favorite hobbies is photograpgy.

I'm not very good at it, not strictly because my pictures are bad, but because I don't take photos how people are used to seeing them.

Take these for example. A motorbike rally was going past one of the local villages a few miles out from where I live, raising money for a children hospice.

 All the motorbikes and scooters were colored in fantastic LED lights. I'd say about 100 rode past us. It was quite a sight.

Realizing very quickly that I wouldn't get a good clear photo of any of the bikes with my lens and lack of other equipment, I decided to try and capture the show of amazing lights. Changing my shutter speed to very low, I placed my camera on low wall and waited for a bike to drive past.
 A few meters before they would come past my camera I would take the photo. My lens would take in all the light as the bike drove past, giving me these fantastic streams of light.

My style of photography might not be everyone's cup of tea. But I love the photos I take.



  1. Your style of photography is so original! I especially love that first one, it's so eyecatching and just immediately grabbed my attention. Forget cup of tea: your art is my teapot!

Hiya all.

It's been a while since my last post hasn't it?

A lot has been happening in these past moths My life has taken a roller-coaster of a journey. One full of pain and excitement, love, self acceptance, hard conclusions and fear, lot of fear, it's been quite something.

During this time it might look like I've taken a break from blogging and in some ways this is true, I've taken a break from Acting Natural, but I've been blogging more than ever before.

So today I'd like to introduce you to Lost In The Story.

This is my main blog and is the reason I haven't posted in several moths, I've moved sites.

So why have I done this?

Reason one being that as a blogger I've started to expand and grow. I love Bloggers simplicity but as I started to write more I wished for more control of my blog and the only way I could do that was to move platforms. It's been a bit hard learning a much more complex system but I'm loving it.

I've also changed …

Growing Pains

Growing up is a scary thing and in all honesty, I can't stand it.

I don't understand that at the age of 18 and now being considered an adult I have to act differently and all my old childish but comforting habits need to be demolished. I don't understand why I get disapproving looks when I don't do things others my age do.

Now that college is over people of my age are making the exciting transition to Uni or full time work, but mainly uni.

I'm not doing this.

I've just came out of college with an BTEC Extended diploma and a Sup diploma in forensic science. It's more than enough to get me into uni but I'm going back for a 3rd year at the hell hole more commonly know as college to study business.

When people ask why I'm not going to Uni in September my reply is usually along the lines of "I have a years left of funding and I want to make the most of it." This isn't a lie. I do have a years left of free funding so I might as well get anot…

Fidget toys.

Fidget toys!!

Who hasn't heard of them lately?

These thing are everywhere.

Your younger sibling might have one, that guys in the street, you friends, you might even own one. It's surprisingly difficult to be in a public place and not see one. This has sparked several conversations about how useful these things really are. They're the latest craze. Some people question the usefulness of them and others are all for it, some are cautious because they are literally everywhere and can be a distraction in schools.

I'm leader at my local guide unit and last time we met several of the girls had the fidget spinners. I'm not going to include a photos because we all know what they look like. At out unit there are 4 leaders including myself (we have a big unit). One of them works at a primary school so is very up to date in what these things are, the other two had no idea what they were all about. We had to convince them about their usefulness and that they could help with pe…
