Creative Mondays 128 – Wembury Bay

“What is Creative Mondays?

Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.

So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”

With a long weekend, it was time to get out of the house and enjoy some of the nice weather we’ve been having. Last week we took a tour of Plymbridge Woods and this time around we thought we’d enjoy some of the beautiful coastline the South West has to offer around Wembury Bay.

It’s great to take a break every now and then, disconnect and let your surroundings inspire. It’s also great for some awesome slushis!

Another year is here and man did 2013 go by fast!  As I do each year I’d like to thank everyone for sticking around and seeing my weekly updates on this site, the inspiration and the passion is as strong as ever and there will be more from me as always!

I hope my family, friends and visitors to this site all the best for the new year and challenge yourself to do something just that little bit different!

Each year it’s become a great tradition with the wife and the in-laws to take a walk on or around Christmas Day. There always seems to be a time when the weather is clear enough and not quite as cold to enjoy walking off those giant Christmas dinners.

This year was no different and so I thought I’d post up a few shots from the journey. Hope everyone had a great Christmas and here’s to a new year!

Photos from Los Santos

Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto 5 has been out for well over a month now and despite the initial bugs (some still to be fixed) there is a great new world to discover. The brilliance of this game is that you can capture some of the amazing scenery from within the world of GTA 5. The Los Santos area is sprawling with other stories to capture and landmarks to spot and I love that a game has offered so many unique ways to play and interact.

There’s already a great collection of GTA 5 photos from other gamers and inspired by this I’d like to share a few of my shots that I took over the past six weeks.

Plymouth’s been pretty good to me. Since moving here in 2003, my life has changed a fair bit. I met my wife (almost 10 years ago to the day) in Plymouth and eventually got my start in a career in graphic design here. The city is growing and gaining more of a culture all of it’s own. For me personally, finding out those like-minded individuals was key and over the past few years with the help of Twestival (Plymouth made their mark in the social media charity event) and a Plymouth Designer’s social I feel there is a great community growing around the city.

A couple of years ago I wanted to show off some of the sites of Plymouth (there are still so many more to do) and so I took my camera out and shot some famous landmarks around the city. I feel this is the best way I can show my appreciation for the City of Plymouth.
