If there was nowhere to land









My push bike has a flat so I am a pedestrian for now. I was peeved at first but in the end I rather enjoyed taking a walk rather than cycling in search of a location. Florence and the Machine pumping through my head phones certainly sweetened the deal.

"I'm not scared to jump, I'm not scared to fall
If there was nowhere to land I wouldn't be scared at all "
from Falling

I bought this linen wrap-dress from a market stall during a sweltering heatwave near on a decade ago. I am always changing my mind about this dress: Loving it to bits, then tiring of it and hiding it at the back of my wardrobe only to rediscover it a year or two later. Well, with maxi-dresses being all that this summer I just had to bring this ankle length oldie out of hiding. The light, airy fabric is perfect for the muggy weather we are currently enjoying over here.

You all have a lovely weekend and a great start to the new one too!

  9. Thanks for all your sweet comments guys :-)

    Arushi: I usually take my shots with the help of my sturdy tripod and self timer although sometimes I just set up the camera and then get a helpful assistant (my husband or occasionally my Dad) to push the shutter for me.
