Plastic… Fantastic?

Looking around my desk right now, without opening any of the drawers below it, I can count 14 pieces of plastic. Two are single-use, one of which is recyclable: a plastic bottle. The other 12, to my knowledge, are non-recyclable. One day, when their purpose is spent, they will end up in landfill. It isContinue reading “Plastic… Fantastic?”

Wised-up and Wisdomless

Buckle up folks, it’s time for another I-got-bored-and-made-a-film-using-whatever-random-old-footage-I-could-find-laying-around-on-my-computer short film! This one’s a bit off-piste, but it’s a style I don’t normally try so I thought I’d give it a whirl. The footage was all taken in Copenhagen, where I got my first and only tattoo while I was travelling over the summer of 2017Continue reading “Wised-up and Wisdomless”

Ant Antics

When I first moved back to Bristol at the start of August 2017, I quickly got my mitts on a second-hand macro lens and set about making a short film focusing on the diverse wildlife in my godmother’s back garden. Inevitably, job hunting and west country weather got the better of me, and I soonContinue reading “Ant Antics”

Exploring Europe III

Chapter III Heading West From Prague, where chapter two ended, I moved on to Budapest, Hungary, then west towards Interlaken, Switzerland. As with Berlin and Prague, good company kept me busy and away from my camera, so Budapest features minimally in this segment despite being one of my favourite stops along the whole journey.¬†Horrendous weatherContinue reading “Exploring Europe III”

We’re Going to the Zoo

Bristol Zoological Gardens has been open since 1836, and is currently home to over 7,000 individuals of over 400 species (according to their 2007 census, as reported on Wikipedia at the time of writing). I have visited countless times in my life, from being pushed around in a buggy by my mother before I couldContinue reading “We’re Going to the Zoo”

Pictures of the Picos

When I was thinking about¬†my five-week interrailing trip around Europe for the summer of 2017, I knew I wanted to dedicate at least a week to Spain. Somehow, I had never been before, and here I had the opportunity to explore it to my heart’s content. Or slightly less, as it would turn out, becauseContinue reading “Pictures of the Picos”

Between Two Lakes

Interlaken is a small, modern town nestled between the twin lakes of Brienz and Thun in central Switzerland. Surrounded by the imposing beauty of the Alps, it’s easy to get lost in the surreal scenery; so for two days in June 2017, that’s exactly what I intended to do. I wish I could say thatContinue reading “Between Two Lakes”

Church on the Water

Lake Bled resembles something straight out of a fairytale. It’s one of the most famous lakes in Eastern Europe, and the only one in Slovenia, nestled next to its namesake town of Bled in the north-east of the country. In its center is a small island, atop which a tiny church sits, rising out ofContinue reading “Church on the Water”
