Instagram Glitch

Hey Guys! 

Sorry for the long wait from any updates from me, there has been a problem with instagram so I haven't been able to post as usual. If they said you've violated their terms like me... DON'T PANIC. Just head online and search for "Instagram hacked", this should lead you to a help link from their site. 

Go on there and click on "Report it to us" 
From there you fill in a form and move on from there. 

Alot of my friends and colleagues have had the same issues.
So don't worry. All in the same boat!

But I'm back on now! Any problems, don't be shy and leave me a message down below at the comments

May The Force Be With You

If you've been watching Star Wars like I have since childhood, you'd totally go to to this exhibition to see the original works on how the story and characters came to be and what was even more interesting were the original sketches being on displayed. 

If you're interested, this exhibition (CLICK HERE) is on until September 3rd 2017 

Got my headsets on and a wrist band with a fob to build your own character.
It was good that there were different information fed to you when you walk past certain drawings or characters from the movie. Keeps it interesting and especially, keeping the kids (or big kid like myself) interested without reading everything (even if I don't mind reading everything displayed). 

Following the Stars

Which planet do you want to be from? 
As boring as I can be, I chose to remain human. 

The most interesting that goes on with this is seeing what other people choose. Whether they end up choosing to be with the force or the characters given like a Jedi, Senator or even a Bounty Hunter.  

As geeky as I can be, this is one of the coolest parts of the exhibition, the model ships and fighter jets.

If you do end up going, even I didn't realize whom Master Yoda was based upon up until now. It kind of make sense now that I think back of it and how he looks. 

In the end, you get to have a look back at the character you've custom designed for yourself. 

Note* I've only picked a few photos from the exhibition for you to see, there's a lot more than what I've posted.

Happy New Year!

2016 just went by so quickly that I haven't even had time to party either.
Instead, I was working but hey! I'm taking a few days off while everyone else is back to work. 

Wishing you all a happy 2017 and I hope this year it'll bring the better!

Christmas at Blenheim | Light Trail

Sun set about late 4 and it was already dark enough to see the wonderful lights at Blenheim Palace from it's doors. For the very first time, the gardens of Blenheim has been lit into a sparkling winter wonderland. 

A carousal for the big and small to enjoy and a little slide off the corner for kids to enjoy themselves too. As for us adults, a mulled wine is always just around the corner.  

First thing that captures, the snowflake trail before the real trail begins. 

For some reason, I don't know why this type of green gave a little bit of an ere feeling as I walked. Somehow, it felt like the Grinch was here from Who'ville

The Rose Garden has turned into a scented Fire Garden. Shame there wasn't a sight to see this from above. 

Before walking back to where we began, a little bit of a Christmas cheer from the elf and Santa. Back to where we started but with different light to guide us out. 

I would go if you're free before it ends! 
Do wear outdoor gear because of the recent wet weather!!

Festive at Blenheim

Time to take out the big cameras out and take some gorgeous photos for the Christmas spirits and season. Any place fill with the scent of pine tree, candles burning and a cuppa hot mulled wine or cider is always dreamy over the holiday season (just wishing for snow to fall now). 

The Marlborough family still owns and lives in the property itself, if you're wondering, yes, it's the birthplace of the late Sir Winston Churchill's family.

Before continuing, part of the State Rooms have art work displays from Blenheim Art Foundation exhibiting Michelangelo Pistoletto from 15/9/2016 - 31/12/2016 (Click Here for more information). Just in case any of you feel like certain pieces of art felt a bit out of place when it came to touring around the State Rooms. 

Walking right through the double doors of Blenheim, a Christmas cheer is already at sight. All that was missing (really) was a proper meal at the dining table and the wood fire burning warming up the room. 

I'm actually looking forward to the new event they have put out this year, "Christmas at Blenheim" from 25/11/2016 - 02/1/2017. It is a separate event to the main palace itself, so check out for tickets online (Click Here) before they're all gone! Don't forget the your parking space too if you're driving up... It is a walk along the illuminated trail through the landscapes of Blenheim. In my mind, I've already got my Barbour jacket and wellingtons on. 

Original Key to the main double door

Apart from the art work on the drums which can always tell a story, 
Could this be from WWII or the battle of Blenheim itself?

Pick your solider

The only thing that baffled me the most out of the whole tour was why the dog statue was facing the mirror...

The contemporary art which are displayed does take your attention away from the first glimpse of all the grandness and royal room. I think my favorite has got be be the very first one I saw with the furniture turned upside down with mirrors installed to it.  

Would you have a pile of laundry in colour or all white!? 

Met a journalist on the way and with the story she is covering, I am quite intrigued to read it now.
Haven't heard back from her, so I'm not sure how she's going to use the photos of us now... yikes...

Christmas cam early.
Food down, Camera ready. Off to shoot again.

Now we have 3D printers to get actual models of architectural sites. Back in the day it was match sticks.
