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.
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.
I love the memories that photographs bring me
I love that photography always makes me look closer and appreciate the details
I love that photography allows me to be creativeI love that photography inspires me
I love that photography is colourful
I love that each and every scene looks different through every different lens
I love that photography teaches you so much; composition, settings, colour, anglesI love that photography takes me places, both in reality and in my dreams
Thank you lovely blogger friends for all of the inspiration you bring me through your camera lenses ❤

Thanks so much! I realised I have so so many photos of flowers, I think I have a slight addiction to photographing them, haha!’
Exceptionally beautiful collection Marcella, I love all these colors. They’re so refreshing. Just want to know about the picture of waterfall. Where did you take that shot?
Thanks so much Madeeha! The waterfall is Iguazu falls on the Brazilian side, it’s amazing! 🙂
Yeah, it’s beautiful and I can feel how magical it feels to be there (:
It’s such an amazing place! 🙂
Your photos are AMAZING!!!
Thanks so much for such a lovely comment 🙂
it brings back the memories for sure:)
Agreed! It’s a great way of doing that 🙂
A beautiful ode! I definitely love how much it makes me pay attention and appreciate moments. And sometimes when I take photos – I also take a moment to just look myself at what I’m taking a photo of. It really is inspiring 🙂
Thank you! So true that photography makes us stop and take in the image before we actually ‘take’ it 😦
