Blaenau Ffestiniog

img_5532img_5684img_5557img_5617img_5631img_5638

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)

Cardiff

img_5348img_5345img_5361img_5389img_5394img_5459img_2338b

I have Visited Cardiff quite a lot recently and haven’t had the time to post my pictures from my travels.

Cardiff is one of my most favourite places to visit but unfortunately I never take the time to snap away and focus on the little important things I see that would make a good photography.

Next time I visit the City I plan to take a lot more images and capture the beauty I see.

 

 

Dreaming (Rain)

dreaming-rain2dreaming-rain1dreaming-rain3dreaming-rain4

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. 

Man and the Forest

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.

Menorca

Location: ciutadella, Menorca

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.

Brussels

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

 

Isle of Man

the Isle of man is a second home to me. for such a small island it is beautiful place and would definitely recommend visiting there. TT weeks is my favourite time to go as the island is so full of life but unfortunately as i am a student I cannot visit the island during TT week as it is held the same weeks as exams are. I have visited the Island many times but this was the first time I put more passion in taking photos of the island. I captured many stunning images but I have chosen to present my favourite black and white images that I captured. My Favourite place to visit on the island is the Milners tower at Bradda Head, I enjoyed this place for the view and for the sea Cliff edges and is a perfect place to photograph.img_5297

Dreaming

I have focused the dreaming series on my emotions I like being lonely and  I am often told to stop being so Distant or to stop day dreaming. I am just in my own world.

I focused these image on my lonely side. I have captured my self feeling lost and cold like a bad Dream, I have been washed up on beach and don’t know what to do or where to go. wanting to be loved but yet there so far away. all I can do is hope for there return. to pick me up from this gloomy place. This is just a Dream

(Dreaming) Why a self-portrait ?

why a self portrait ?

I have used my Self in these images as it is always challenge finding a model when I need them, I was inspired by photographer Miss Aniela for her self-portrait work as she also struggled to find models to photograph. I fell in love with her work and the way she has photographed her self in different locations and how she multiplies her self
