Passion For Photography ๐Ÿ“ธ

Hi There! Is it me, or do the days run by like the wind? I can’t believe it’s been almost 1 whole week since the new year!


The above image is one of my all-time favourite quotes! You’re the one responsible. You’re the one in control. You need to efficiently make & manage your time in order to be happy & satisfied with what you’ve accomplished in your day. I always find it useful to look back & reflect on your day before going to bed. Usually you’ll find things that you’re proud of & areas which need improvement (or at least that’s the case with me) ๐Ÿ˜Š

Anyway, this post isn’t about time…even though it may have seemed like it. I just thought I’d mention my thoughts before starting with the main topic of this post – which I’m sure you’ve already figured out because of the title! ๐Ÿ“ธ

As a young teenage girl (do I sound clichรฉ here? I feel like this sentence starter has been used endless times), I have many many hobbies. Some which you might already know about -like writing stories – and some which you’ll discover in future posts.

One of the things I REALLY enjoy is (drumroll please), Photography. I got addicted to it midway through 2016 & I haven’t stopped since then.I taught myself everything I know about photography. The camera parts, the rules, the terms…everything. I’m actually pretty proud of what I’ve accomplished!

FYI, I don’t have a DSLR, or in other words a professional camera (like Nikon). I’ve been doing what I call “iPhone Photography”. This might sound real bad (since I’m pretty sure we can all agree that the iPhone camera sucks), but I managed. ๐Ÿ“ฑ

  1. As mentioned in my About page, I like photography ,too! But I rarely take any good photos! Mainly sunsets, sunrises, vacation photos, and other stuff. And one of my resolutions was to make 2017 a great year because, as you said, you are the one who is in control.

    1. I’m sure you’re photos are better than you think. Besides it’s like what they say “Practice Makes Perfect”. If it’s something you like, then nothing can stop you from doing it! One of my resolutions is to do more of what makes me happy! Even though there are times when things spin out of control…we should still be able to manage well & make the most out of things so we can have an enjoyable year! Thankyou for commenting & don’t underestimate yourself. I’m sure your photos are great – just like your blog! โค๏ธโค๏ธ

  2. Your photos are wonderful! Taking photos with your iPhone isn’t bad at all. I’m learning how to do it too. In fact in my search for tips, I’ve found a whole “counter culture ” (for lack of a better word.) of iPhone ๐Ÿ“ฑ photography.
    Also found an app where you can donate your photos for charity. The link is on my blog page. Keep taking your beautiful pics!

  3. I love your photos. You have a good eye for beauty… It doesn’t matter what camera you’re using too.. what matters is how you use it. Eventually, I know you will have better cameras… but what you already have is talent.. and that’s so much better. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Hi! Just droppped by, your blog is amazing!!! I can see all of the effort you put into every one of your posts, and I love your photos!! I can never take them that well on an iPhone, I mostly use my big clunky one. Also, if you either live or went to Cairo,(you don’t have to tell me), that is so cool! I’ve always wanted to go there. ๐Ÿ™‚ Again, amazing blog!!

  7. The flowers and leaves are so pretty – natural light is always the best! I just stumbled upon your blog but I really like it so far; your whole design and theme is so sweet and your writing is so wonderful. I’ve never really thought about going to Cairo or Barcelona but your posts enlighten those places in a whole new way to me! I’ve actually just started a blog but I’ve been writing my whole life. I think, like what you said, that I’m starting to discover what I love (writing and photography) more and more!
