Central Park, New York City (Part II)

Working on a short film called ‘The Picaroon Writer’ with this guy, Dan Maule. Watch out for it, folks!

Welcome, ghosts.

I have new portrait project coming up for my A2 Level so watch out for it. Get ready to see more of my painting too!

You could just be a camera. A camera on two legs that films the things around it. Slowly recording the seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks and years as they pass.

Or you could be more.

Summer Skin

Let’s take a small break from the travel photos. Here are some of the photos from a little photo shoot with some friends that basically involved walking around a field for a few hours. We didn’t really plan it in great detail and we just winged it so hahaha yeah this happened. I’m pleased with how the photos turned out though and I still have a couple more to post so watch out!

Central Park, New York City (Part I)

New York Invasion!

Tourists being tourists on Liberty Island

I sometimes forget how ridiculous people can be when they’re tourists - whether it be making funny poses in front of an iconic location or getting on their knees to get the right shot. I guess it’s because no one knows them and no one is bound to remember them so why the hell not take weird photos of yourself and shoot to your heart’s content!

Times Square

There’s not much to say besides it was crazy but the lights were amazing.

Grand Central Terminal, New York City

As expected, it was incredibly busy and there were so many people but it was incredibly beautiful. We only stayed for around five minutes and sadly I wasn’t able to take a photo of its astronomically designed ceiling because too many people were rushing and let’s face it, the last thing you need when you’re running late are tourists blocking your way. I’m slightly agoraphobic too so the large number of people also made me a bit uncomfortable. Nonetheless, the interior of the Grand Central Terminal was phenomenal.

Manhattan, New York City
I’m currently taking my A Level exams and they’re not going to finish til 12 June. The travel posts will stop for now but here’s a photo of the Manhattan skyline for the mean time.

New York City was phenomenal.

Charm City Cakes in Baltimore, MD

My mum and I watch a show called “Ace of Cakes” and it’s about Charm City City Cakes, a cake shop that creates amazing cakes! We sometimes watch it all day because who can get sick of cakes being made in all sorts of shapes and sizes? They’ve even made a Hogwarts cake (castle and train complete with smoke) for the premier of one of the films. Have a look through their gallery to see more of their cakes.

As you can probably imagine, I was so excited when I found out they happen to be in the same state as my dad’s because that meant I can go to their shop! Seeing their shop was pretty awesome because it’s one of those “I can’t believe I’m seeing the real thing” moments. It was cake heaven! I wanted to run away with the R2D2 cake but they would’ve easily caught up with me because I would’ve had to stop to eat it.

When I saw Geof, their executive chef, I unintentionally said, “OHMYGOD IT’S GEOF” out loud. Why am I so embarrassing?! But thankfully, he was very nice and he even chatted with us for a couple of minutes.

How I wish there was a British equivalent of Charm City Cakes.
