I think my new hamster socks have to be my favourite of all of mine, due to them looking so much like Honey!
The yummy looking food I have photographed here are the outcomes of a day baking with one of my younger sisters. She wanted to try making flapjacks so we made two different kinds: chocolate chip flapjacks (with chocolate drizzled on top) and nut & seed oat bites (a recipe of my own that turned out better than expected!). We also tried making fudge for the first time which was delicious too.

This week I caught a sickness bug and had to take time off from everything. I hate being ill and this week was such bad timing as I'd just started my new job and couldn't make it in for a couple of days. I spent a lot of time resting at home, knitting and playing with my hamster and luckily I'm now on the mend.

The day after returning home from Yorkshire I started my new (second) job. Before christmas I done a couple of days work at my old college, teaching photography, and I'm now pleased that they have got me on board as a part time lecturer there. After my previous experience teaching I decided that it is what I want to pursue as a career so I am really excited about being able to start this now. I will also still be retouching for the photography company I have been working for since may last year, as well as continuing my own photography in my spare time. 2012 has started off well and I am excited about what else may happen this year!

I'm trying to work out what it is about windows that fascinate me. They feature a lot in my photography, in my fashion shoots or capturing the light shining through a broken window in a derelict building. Of course as a photographer I am in love with the light they provide as well as a good composition to frame, but there is something more personal behind it.
Throughout my life I have spent a lot of time gazing out of the window and watching the world go by, whilst being stuck behind a barrier of glass myself. The window shows me the world I want to explore but the darkness inside holds me back.
I am caught between the light and the dark.
Tomorrow I am going away for a week, with limited internet access. I will have lots of photographs to post when I return.

Usually I don't make new years resolutions: I have found with previous attempts that, like most people, I don't stick to them! But this year feels different, like I need a new start... A new beginning. So with this I have re organized my blog and have set a bit of a promise to myself that I will photograph more. I am going to make more effort to photograph my everyday life and post the outcomes on my blog, it will be my photo diary.
I am stripping away everything I know. I need to find out who I really am, as a person and as a photographer.
