last week

I saw that Dawbis was having a photo party, sounded like a great idea, so here are my photos, if not a little late! But better late than never I suppose...

Saturday, the first thing I saw when I woke up...

Every day I see these curtains I think I want to change them. They were here when we moved in 9 months ago and I still haven't got round to changing them. I seem to forget all day and only remember I don't like them when I get back into bed. Also, the flowers look like aliens and they give me nightmares. hmm.


Sunday, something I want to remember for ever...
My boyfriend hates having his picture taken. So much so that from 6 years of togetherness I have approximately 5 photos of him. This is one I slyly took when he was concentrating on playing his bass. Shhh. I love it when he plays, I love a man with talent.



Monday, a random person on the street...

Tricky one this one. I didn't feel comfortable taking a picture of someone without their permission, Leeds is rough you know! But I do think this person is quite random, and she's been on the street for a long time, I don't think many people notice her though. That's one thing about Leeds, the bottom half of the buildings in town are pretty average, but if you look up it's like a different place; almost every building is different; different heights, colours of brick, tiling, carvings, different shaped windows, domes and turrets, even a few automata! Much better that looking at the floor.

Tuesday, my feet...
Kind of self explanatory this one.

Wednesday, my lunch...

The food where I work is no treat. It's expensive and unhealthy, greasy pizza and crisp anyone? So I normally take in my own. Except this week I have been extra lazy and have been treating myself to sandwiches from a lovely little shop called Grain. Yummy. Eaten in the library whilst reading one of their large selection of journals, peace & quiet.

Thursday, the sky...

Love the sky. Have also included a few tree branches, as I think they look so mesmerizing at this time of year, especially at dusk as I'm walking home. Did you spot the bird?

Friday, a self-portrait...
Here I am at my parents house in my old bedroom, I found this mirror covered in mould, in an old cottage my dad was clearing out, and thought I would give it a second chance.

Saturday, the last thing I saw as I entered the house for the night...


I enjoyed taking these photos this week, it's made me think about things that I perhaps would not normally do. And that can't be bad!
