Well, as this is my first post I don’t really expect a lot of people to read it.. Anyway, I’ve been away from photography for a while but it’s a new year (well, still only February) and my “astrologic hell” is over (that’s something we say in Portuguese, it’s basically the 30 days before your birthday when you tend to feel very vulnerable and confused and to think and re-think about what you are doing with your life..), so here I am with something new!
I’m gonna start talking about this little trip my boyfriend gave me as my (and his) bday present: we went to this beautiful, old and cozy Castle/Hotel (some people say it’s haunted, but thank god I didn’t see anything), I felt like I was in a movie there! Everything there was so beautiful and inspiring and I had so many ideas for photos, it re-lighted the photography flame inside me.
I fell in love with the bathroom and had loads of ideas of pictures in that bath, OMG.. But unfortunately we didn’t have time to produce them, and besides I still need to finish his photography lessons.
We went for a walk and it was so cold outside, my hands were freezing because I couldn’t wear gloves as I was taking pictures.. But it was defo worth it.
He made a friend there (#blackcat), a cute and needy cat that followed us all the way..
We had delicious coffee indoors while we waited for it to stop raining..
Later we went to the Dungeon Bar and enjoyed a lil bit of traditional Irish music, pints and delicious goujons and chips (btw, that’s a new passion in my life, I never really cared for fries for example, but goodness me, it’s amazing what they make out of potatoes here).
Overall, a lovely way to start my new year and my blog.
