We spent a few days on the south coast with some good friends to see in the new year. Here's a few shots we took during a walk along the Bournemouth Chines. Malc used to come here on holidays when he was little. It's nice to see not too much has changed.
As a little Christmas present for you guys we've got a few discounts to offer you from some of our favourite Etsy sellers.
Today Audrius and Virginija from Woodstorming have a special offer for you. We think their shop is amazing. The husband & wife team run their small family workshop from Lithuania. They focus on making original, elegant and unique ring boxes, as well as office and personal accessories.
“We do everything from scratch ourselves. It is amazing to see how a plain piece of wood turns into something special. Our designs require lots of handwork, there are several stages of sanding and polishing, the most delicate of these can be done only by hand - all small details, corners and so on. We prefer natural look and do not use lacquer - only oil and wax finish on our creations.”
Use the code 'MYPHOTOGRAPHY' until the end of January to get 5% off in their shop.
We went on an adventure to South Wales to take a peek at the Christmas lights in Swansea and Cardiff. Mostly we shopped and bought a tun of Christmas presents, but we also took some photos- so here they are.
P.S Check out Nom's slightly freaked-out face on the ferris wheel!
In Melbourne one residential street in particular has a reputation for its Christmas lights: the Boulevard. They take it seriously, to the extent that the road is partially closed, allowing traffic to flow slowly in one direction only. The police and St John's ambulance are there on standby alongside glow-stick sellers, food vans and revellers. The night we visited there was a band giving a live performance from their garage with people stopping to watch down the driveway and some drinking beers in the garden.
