Words and Pictures

Happy 16th birthday to my sister, Amy! You can check out what she looks like here. balloon1

I’ve been busy. I have tonnes of posts for the blog ready to be written, but I feel drained right now. I’m actually working everyday right now, though only for a couple of hours on some days. This, however, puts me in a bad mindset as I’m always thinking “I’ve got to be ready for class.” It’d be ok if it was morning classes and have the rest of the day free, but Monday and Wednesday all I have are evening classes which throw me out completely. I’ve not been able to focus well on my blog recently either, so have just been watching Desperate Housewives (about 9 years too late, but that doesn’t matter).

However, I have slowly been producing stuff, even if it’s not been on my own blog! You may have noticed the new badge on the right-hand side of my blog page about TravelDudes. This is an awesome website full of lots of travel tips and I just got one published about Beijing!

I’ve also done an interview over at new online magazine Girl Gone International about why I chose to come to China.

My Guest Post page also has a lot of other things I’ve written around the internet too, so definitely check it out to see what else I get up to apart from my own blog! There are plenty of other guest posts I’m planning in the wings too, although some may have to wait until I’m done with my job here.

Night Photographs

I published some before but I’ve been playing again.

Firstly in Dongguan.

It’s truly amazing what a few settings and a still camera can do!

I’ve also been playing more in Zhangzhou:

  1. Great to hear that you’ve been doing so well and getting on Travel Dudes too!

    It can be very time consuming working on and off your site but I know you enjoy all the blogging. It certainly makes it easier doesn’t it?

    Going into blogging I was hoping it would not be as time consuming as it has become. Yet it is very rewarding and it is great that you are seeing that too.

    9 years since the episodes of Desperate Housewives, wow time does fly.

  2. Cool photos. Never seen different settings of the same picture published before.

    • Thanks for stopping by, Ross! I just thought it would be interesting to show people the differences. I’ve got in no way a top spec camera, but still good to show what a point and shoot can do nonetheless!
