A Love Letter to Photography {World Photo Day}

Today is World Photo Day, a day that celebrates a passion of photography.

Photography is a huge part of my life.  It’s my number one hobby (along with travel, of course!) and something that I hope I am never without.  Kew Gardens, London

I got into photography at an early age as both of my parents were into it, and I’ve never looked back.  I used to have a film camera that I used when on holiday with my family as a child.  Of course, the photos I took weren’t great, but the memories they bring me are 🙂  I actually wrote a post featuring some of my childhood photos here.  I also studied photography at school for my GCSE and then for A level too (between the ages of 14-18), where I mostly did darkroom development.  When I was 19, my parents bought me an SLR, that still works amazingly, to this day.

Blogging has made me get even more into photography, as has reading other blogs with so many stunning photos.
