THE MIND OF A DREAMER

See it. Love it. Live it.

DREAMS

When darkness swallows
the suns last light,
their eyes surrender to the night.

Their Adventures take place
all around,
yet they never seem to make
a sound.

But they shall return
within time,
when the sun burns bright
with day in mind.

My Sister was studying ‘professional writing’ and had to write many poems. So one night, as she read me a couple of her ideas, I was blown away! They were pretty darn good! And it inspired me to give it a wee go.
So this is my first ever poem, for the world to see 🙂

CAPTURE THE MOMENT// B&W

 

 When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls! ~Ted Grant

 

 

 

In the photos above, the individuals had no idea I was taking their photo. Well…I don’t think they realised…I had the camera out like all the time, so I took it when they where day dreaming or distracted haha
Anyway, their facial expression, the posture of their body, it’s all real… not forced. You can see their true emotions. And capturing it in Black and White enhances it to a whole new level. Its really cool when you think about it!

 

can you see the difference?…

 

Black & White can capture something so much more…

 

 

BE CAPTURED

I love photography, its my art. Its something that I love to do. I just love how I can capture memories, and make them into dreams, stories or even seem magical. Read the rest of this entry »

SEE IT

Southend in Argyll and Bute, Kintyre. A beautiful picture from the top of Dunaverty Rock, taken when I went exploring with my two amigos.
Dunaverty Rock is a piece of history for Kintyre as it was where the ‘Dunaverty Castle’ once stood, where a brutal massacre of the MacDonalds clan took place in 1647 .  Better known as the Glencoe massacre.
Southend is such a beautiful area of Kintyre and is where I would love to build a home one day, when I’m a millionaire and all that 🙂 (I know…very unlikely, but a girl can dream).

GOODNESS FOR THE SOUL// CHOCOLATE & ORANGE

Oh boy…do I love food that’s good for the soul!
A wee while back before my sailing adventure I made my family a Chocolate and Orange angel cake. And by god was it tasty!!! It was like a gorgeous slice of chocolaty heaven…
Recipe

16 oz Self raising flour
12 oz Caster sugar 
1 large orange
3 eggs
8 oz of Butter
Powdered Hot chocolate

 

Okey-dokey, lets see If I remember how I made it 🙂

Sieve the 16 0z of Self raising flour into a large bowl.
Add the caster sugar.
Mix together.
Add large table spoons of powdered hot chocolate until the mixture begins to look chocolaty…
I unfortunately cant remember how much I added to mine
Add the butter.
Mix until the mixture becomes crummy with no crazy buttery lumps.
Grate the zest of the orange and add to mixture.
Mix together.
Crack the 3 eggs in a separate bowl and whisk. Add to the mixture.
Mix together.
Squeeze the juice of the orange into a orange squeezer thing, or if you don’t have one, you can do it by hand into a bowl then sieve it to get rid of any unwanted bits.
Slowly add small amounts to the mixture. Mix together. Keep adding the juice until the mixture becomes smooth.

Presto ! you are done x
Just add the mixture to a cake tin, preheat the oven to 180 c and shove it in the oven x
if you have any left over, you can make cupcakes!
