One of my favourite places to go right now is Golden Bay. In Summer it's ever so crowded and crammed with umbrellas, deckchairs and the sort. However, at this time of year it's close to deserted and very much surrounded in Green. I also happen to think that Golden bay is one of the best places from where to see the sun set. Case in point, I took the above photo just as the sun had set. We went there for a quick hot chocolate/Cider and it was a beautiful(ly clouded) day. :)

|Taken at The Point, Tigne|
It's Christmas, and our Dining table is brimming with presents. Big presents, small presents, hampers, multitudes of wrapping, ribbons and cards. There are some aspects of Christmas which I don't really like, but there is a lot which I like about it. Some things I'm loving this Christmas:
- Christmas Lights
- Bokeh pictures. Thanks to the above and my beloved SLR.
- Our new kitty. And when he pounced on my face at some 3 or 4 in the morning and began pawing at my nose.
- Running around on Campus, with Christmas songs blaring in the Quadrangle. Yay for University Campus Christmas cheer.
- Days off, films, shopping and more.
- A Trip to my old Sixth Form.
- Hot Chocolate and lots and lots and lots of tea.
- Rainy days. Yes.
- Lots of Celebrations and having excuses to party.
- Dining out with lots of friends.
- Catching up with people whom I haven't seen in a while.
- Wrapping presents with ribbons and stuff :3
- Photographic assignments.
- An impromptu meal of tid-bits and wine.
- Heated mulled wine with a slice of orange.
- Cosying up by a lit fireplace. :3
This video literally leaves me speechless as I watch it. It does take some while to load if HD, but it's totally worth it. I really wish I'd go to El Teide sometime soon. The views of the stars are amazing there.

The subject may not, by standard, be anything beautiful. But the way the photographer composes the photo is something extraordinary. It is a photo by Bernd and Hilla Becher, a married couple who took photos of industrial structures. They specialized in photography and the geometry within their compositions.
Keeping this is mind, I had an assignment of quite a similar nature. We had to photograph water tanks. In my quest to capture these structures, which I honestly don't really like, I tried to keep in mind rules of visual balance, geometry and composition. In the end I managed to find 3 different shots which I liked. I will upload these below, with my favourite first, 2nd favourite and least favourite.

I love Architecture- I'm not in my course for nothing or because I did not know what to choose instead.
One of my Credits this semester was about 20th Century Cultural Landmarks. It's very interesting mind you, I love learning about these things. However, whilst I do appreciate modern and contemporary buildings, I must say I'm a tad more apreciative of beautiful old structures. With spacious courtyards, intertwining corridors, staircases and intricate stonework. You know, kind of like Hogwarts.
What I'm not particularly fond of, however, is the way they used to be furnished. I do like clean cut furnishings.

(shot this photo in Vienna last year)
Oh, I love sweets. They make me more in tune with my inner childishness... Don't they remind you of when buying or receiving candy was one of the most delightful things ever?

But also the wonderful wonderful feeling of not having exams, deadlines and more classes than you can manage pressing down on you. Not to mention the sheer clothes, lace and pretty floral dresses. :)
If it's not your usual cup of tea, try listening to some John Mayer or Joshua Radin first. Radiohead might be legendary in the field but delving head first into their music might be a bit of a shock if you're not used to it. :P

... going to beautiful places is breathtaking. Looking a pictures and actually going there are two completely different things. Leave your comfort zone, go somewhere new. Even if it's taking a bus to anywhere you don't ever go. The best thing about travel is that you get to see new things, observe and appreciate. Do it. :)
