I lived in Blaenau ffestiniog in the summer of 2016 for work. I actually thought the town was quit boring apart from the Zip World site and the Down hill biking centre. it constantly rains in Blaenau ffestiniog, so it always looks quite gloomy there apart from when it snows and all the slate is covered in beautiful white powder.
I now do not live in Blaenau ffestiniog and I had always seen some beautiful images of the mountain and some beautiful walks that are in Blaenau ffestiniog. I went back to visit the town to take some photographs for my next college project and I was taken up into the queries in Tan-y-Grisiau where I found this beautiful landscape and old slate buildings. I did not get to spend much time taking images up there but I cant wait to go back and visit and take some more photographs (maybe in some better weather)
I have captured my self in a rainy landscape to emphasise a bad Dream, as I live in North Wales where the rain never stops, creating a gloomy, moody atmosphere and I wanted to capture how hard it can be to be joyful in such a cold, wet, cloudy, landscape. I am representing defeat with my body language in these images, and the struggle to raise my head, and to not be staring at the muddy ground, I am often told to stop daydreaming. I am just in my own world. Trying to forget about the rain, trying to daydream about the blue sky and green fields and not cold, wet, grey clouds. and this is just a dream, Once I raise my head I can see the rain fading away and that this storm won’t last forever. I can’t admit to defeat doesn’t matter how lonely or lost I feel there is always some sunshine in North Wales. this is just a dream.
I have now had a bit of practice with film work as my current project in Foundation Art is digital story telling, for this project we where taken to Coed-Y-Brenin. We where told to create a film that lasted 30 seconds and to capture what coed-Y-Brenin.
Coed-Y-Brenin is a popular forest park. It is popular for its mountain bike trails and hiking paths. I wanted to capture how man and the forest have come together.
I have visited Menorca twice now, I love it for its warmth and its spanish food and the spanish buildings, Menorca is more of a holiday than my other travels i have been on but that doesn’t stop me from capturing the beauty of this island.
I have traveled to many places, and Brussels is one of my favourite cities I have seen so far. The architecture in Brussels is beautiful some buildings are a bit strange but yet amazing like the Atomium. There is so much photograph. I visited many galleries on my trip to Brussels such as the Royal Museums of Fine Arts, Comic Strip Center
