Back in April I pushed past my anxieties and booked in for a local Photo walk with Love Your Camera (and saw a real life Unicorn).
I had heard about the walk from some Kent Bloggers and as I am always looking for ways to improve my Instagram the photo walk looked like a great idea.
It was a lovely morning, Karen who runs the walk created challenges on cards to allow us to think differently about what we saw as we walked around a local farm.
Photography is not a talent I have but I love to take photos and I like to think that is ok as it makes me happy. Karen shares the same ethos, although she is desperate for me to take my Olympus Pen off of auto (one day I promise) she also says it is all about seeing things and photographing them and enjoying it.
For me it was all about the trees and textures of the bark, I love them, I think it comes from living in woodlands for most of my childhood, they offer a lot of wonder for me.
After the photo walk we headed to the Grain Store Studio for a spot of lunch, I shall do a whole post on The Grain Store one day soon as I want to take the kids but wow the place is amazing, a little spot of me, with beautiful decor, homemade cakes, relaxed feel, and bacon. It’s a hidden gem in the Kent Countryside.
Karen’s home will be featured on the blog this month, it is gorgeous and she kindly agreed let me share it with you all which I can’t wait for.
I also get to meet up with all these ladies for a truly exciting day on the 19th when Karen hosts her first Creative Skill Share Day!
If you are in Kent then I urge you to check it out, it starts at 10 am and there will be tips and advice on everything from blogging to making flower crowns and more.
Karen will be offering her skills on vision boards as well as some local artists coming to show their products and share a wealth of knowledge.
I really hope the day is a great success as we certainly need more of these creative days to connect people, build a community and have fun.
