An industrial city river walk...

Hi everyone! As you have probably seen, my puppy Star is a 'Jug'; a Jack Russell/Pug X and so she needs walking literally everyday where possible. Her favourite walk is along the river where I live, probably one of the more industrial views available! As I'm going back to university later on this month and I'm struggling a little inspiration wise, my grandmother had the brainwave of telling me to take my camera out when I took Star out for a walk with my mum.

I have to say, if there is one thing I do love about living in a city is the lights and shapes that that reflect everywhere, as seen in the water/ripples in many of these photographs. Sometimes its good to just take photographs for no real reason, just relax and capture whats in front of you, especially when the sky/sunset is as lovely as this one was. I do love autumn, I love it when it starts to get dark and the lights seem to get brighter and it gets to that stage when a coat is completely necessary. Ahhh, autumn!

Wish I'd remembered to use a tripod though, as my hands are terrible for being incredibly shaky and quite a few times I had to use gates or walls for support and to minimise shakiness in the images. I do live near a variety of London's most famous landmarks, and a few of them are featured in these photographs, I must have looked like a tourist, haha. I think that you can sometimes ignore what is right in front of you if you're not careful, so maybe I need to learn to be more grateful about what where I live has to offer me, inspiration wise.

I'm aware this is a bit of a random post, but I feel like I need to be more proactive when it comes to blogging, so here we are :) a post is a post, and I'm trying my best to post more frequently and not post the same old things. Let me know what you think, I'd love to know and it'll be really helpful to find out the kind of thing I should post in future! Until next time, Rach x x x
