On not writing

Annie Dillard rightly says in her book ‘The Writing Life’ How we spend our days is of course, how we spend our lives Obvious isn’t it? If someone were to analyse my life what would it look like my priorities were? I do a lot of different things, I love learning and trying new things. […]

Snaps as small pleasures

I decided to focus in on my Instagram and develop that as a way to grow my photography business.
