Cemetery Tour : Chapel Allerton Cemetery in Black and White

Chapel Allerton Cemetery
I've already visited Chapel Allerton cemetery in Leeds over here on the blog, where I shot a few colour photographs and this whole roll of black and white using my little Mamiya 135EF, a handy little dude that easily fits in my pocket and shoots 35mm film with sharp brilliance.

I was a bit nervous about how these would come out, it was the first time I'd used my little Mamiya and it has fixed focal depths I was still working out.

... As you can see here, woops!

I'm loving these pictures though. Chapel Allerton Cemetery is such a special little hidden paradise, so many wild flowers and butterflies.

If you happen to be in Leeds with some spare time, get the bus up to Chapel Allerton and have a wander.

Off Topic : Girl Crushing


I've been compiling a collection of beautiful women I'd love to photograph/split a bottle of wine with/wardrobe raid on Pintrest recently without realising it. Babes, every one of them.

Insert a picture of yourself here as well, obviously <3

Follow me on Pintrest for more of the same.

Matthew regularly frequents the Sunday Sessions events down at the Draft House on Charlotte St, and I'm always a bit jealous when he comes home with tall tales of epic food adventures so I let him drag me along to the event in June hosted by the Wild Beer Co.  It featured a bunch of "sour beers" which apparently I enjoy, so why not.

Sunday Sessions is a good excuse to eat some nice food and drink some nice beer, as matched by the Draft House team in collaboration with a different brewery each time.

It all sounds a bit random, so I just went with it. The beers were pretty tasty, and the food was delicious.

Yeah that guy is smoking fish on a bar! It was all pretty chilled out. A perfect Sunday afternoon, maxin'n relaxin'.

I'm not a beer blogger (I leave that to the expert in our house) so I don't have much to say about this day, other than I could have eaten these butternut squash balls all day until I exploded and died. But I only got one. Insert a single, golden tear.

I just had a really nice afternoon, taking photographs and chatting with people, eating good food and having a few cold sour beers.

Looking back at these photographs, its funny to me that all of the colours are perfectly matching as well. Beetroot tart and blackcurrant beer - perfect.  Also lets give this Basil Crème Brulee its moment to shine, I could literally eat tubs and tubs of this stuff.

I'm not sure I'd become a Sunday Sessions regular, just because I'm not generally a huge beer drinker (novelty sour/fruit beers aside) but I highly recommend popping down if you are. Its a good time.

Sunday Sessions are held at the Draft House on Charlotte St in central London. You can find out more on the Draft House website.

Kitchen Time: Cereal Saves Lives.

I'm pretty sure everyone already knows how good graze boxes are, but I just got a bunch of the Breakfast Variety boxes in and they have basically saved my life, so I wanted to give them a shout out.
Since I left my day job, I've been pretty out of routine. I keep forgetting to eat, and having random sachets of cereal around has saved my bones through many a hAnGry creative blockage in the past few weeks.
YUM. Actually the orange ones aren't that good but thats possibly just because I hate orange. Rocky Road is where the money is. Cereal is literally the best snack. I recently discovered that I might only think that because my parents are firm believers in the "if you are hungry have a bowl of cereal" method of raising children, but I'm going to stand behind it. I have a bowl of this stuff before bed every night and the variety of these boxes keeps it interesting. Alpen, I mean its good but after half a box I get a bit bored.
This was a really boring blog about cereal brought to you by GRAZE.

Shooting For: Oh Squirrel

Oh Squirrel
I've been shooting for the every wonderful Oh Squirrel a lot this Summer, and she boy has she had a busy time cranking out wonderful new designs and what not. So busy she has even had me helping out as her studio assistant, which obviously, is an absolute joy. I love making badges.

She has been updating her store like woah with these new products and I wanted to share some of the photographs we worked together on.

Piles and piles of witty fabric tags. I like this unicorn one.

She's a pretty Squirrel as well. Reet good.
