So, in this post here, I mentioned how I got the Panasonic Lumix GX7 camera – well I’ve truly been testing it out in different environments (which is fairly easy to do considering how much lighter it is than my DSLR) however, my favourite pictures to take lately are everyday seemingly mundane ones. It’s funny how much little details we never notice about somethings and this camera has given me a chance to truly focus on the tiniest details. It’s fairly powerful and so the focus is amazing and its such a great way to draw out beauty from everyday things I just never pay attention to. Case in point –
Peanuts in a jar. I actually got these to eat, bought waaaay too many and got bored and they’re just ‘decorations’ now. Well, that’s until I get my next wave of peanuts craving.
Woven Box – I should store things tidily here but this is where I store every miscelleanous thing I have. My olympics memorabilia, empty boxes I’m not ready to part with, old pictures, spare HDMI cables… quite literally everything. On the outside, it looks amazing (inside it is in a state of ‘organised chaos’)
Lightbulb lamp. Got this at TK Maxx and fell in love with it straight away. A bulb in a bulb in a bulb… Ended up buying a really bright bulb to go in it (which was like staring at the sun) so I got a dimmer to make it adjust to whatever mood I’m in ( best idea ever! Adds more versatility to the lamp). Stuff from TK Maxx are one off sometimes so I have no idea where to get one like this but there are a few inspired glass lamps here. (Like I love this one here!)
Mini cactus. Well it used to be about 1/5th the side it is now when I first got it a few years back. I’ve got a thing for tiny little cacti! 🙂 They’re so cute! lol!
Multi-colour scarf. This one is from Aviator Nation (they had a limited edition collection at Gap so I don’t know if they sill sell it). I’m like a magpie when it comes to bright colours like this.
California license plate I got on my road trip across America – got one for every state I’ve been in and I’m proud to say I have quite a few now. 🙂 I love how worn (and slightly rusty) it is – it makes it feel authentic and rustic. The new and shiny touristy type ones are a bit of a cop out I think.
Marionette from Venice. As you can probably tell, I love getting souvenirs when I travel and this one started off as a bit of joke but then I saw it dancing (when you pull the strings), I just had to get it.
