This weeks word is - Moment 
Although, me being a photographer, a photo would probably of been the most obvious choice for me and this word seeing as it's the reason we take them, I decided to truly express the meaning of a moment it needed to be written. Many photographers will use the word on their website while stating that using their services will help preserve your special moments is a beautiful way and I am no different. Though I rarely take on any jobs any more it is most certainly my main reason for carrying my camera everywhere and of course why I partake in annual photography projects. Time moves so fast, and a moment passes so quick that I want to freeze as many and savor them forever.

Question of the Week.
If you had all the money in the world but still had to have some kind of job, what would you choose to do?
Obviously, as many of you already know, I'd run my own animal rescue center/retreat type thing. I'd use all my money to buy all the land and hire all the staff I required to make sure any animal of any breed that needed a home had on. It'd be the best job ever and I wouldn't mind mucking out and getting stuck in. Now if any rich people want to donate a considerable sum to me you can see it'll be well used. My bank details are... haha

  1. Your photography never fails to be stunning my dear. The lighting and composition is just beautiful. I love the idea of freezing moments to savour. I know this sounds silly, but I'd still do the same job I have right now. Just if I had all that money I could afford to buy nice kit for the teams I coach and we could have a proper minibus to go on tour with. I do love my job!

  6. Oooh I'm really loving that photo! I haven't been to the beach in ages, I always think about going in the summer, but it would be so much better in the winter with hardly anyone being there. Hmm, might have to take a sneaky trip. I'd love to see the beach in the snow!

    1. Aw thank you! :D Is the beach far from you? We have so many beaches around that we go quite often. No snow though with all the sea salty air!
      I'll be on the look about for Belgian Beach photos now!!

  7. I often fall asleep next to Penny's little bed. I use it as a pillow.

    If you were able to open your own animal shelter, I think I'd travel clear across the world to come work for you for free!

    What a lovely post! I hope you've been well!!

      Oh you wouldn't be working for free, if I had all the money in the world I'd fly you over to work with me paid obviously. It'd be a big blogger sanctuary lol.
