“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.”

It’s been an exciting and busy seven days since my last post. Packing boxes, organising furniture, setting up my new office in my brand new home! Yep, super excited to announce the headquarters of Creative Mondays has itself a little office space in a house all of it’s own! My old flat (rented for ten years!) will certainly be missed, mainly for it’s ideal location near the sea but my wife and I simply outgrew the space and needed an upgrade.

So this week has been a pretty big change in a lot of ways and thinking of something to post this week was kinda challenging. Do I create something in Photoshop around the move? Do I ignore what’s going on around me and finish that damn ‘Wonders of the Universe’ (it’s coming soon) series?  As I was reflecting and looking for inspiration I often check through any photos I’ve taken and two shots stood out to me. The first was within my flat as we were cleaning it out and I had a moment to sit and stare out the window thinking about the last ten years and the second was on one of my many trips around the waterfront and seeing the one landmark that has always been around me, Smeaton’s Tower.

As much as I will miss my old flat, I look forward to the future and the exciting times ahead!

This weekend my wife and I got a chance to take one last camping trip with friends before the weather sets in. Refusing to let this awesome summer end we embarked on a night of tent building, barbecues and camp-fire stories. I took a few photos over the weekend and I thought I’d feature three of these to encapsulate some of the fun we had!
