I love learning new skills, particularly for free, so I signed up for a Skillshare account a while ago. I’m also a heavy user of Instagram, so when I saw their class, The Possibilities of Instagram: Sharing Your Best Photos, was free, I enrolled immediately. While a lot of what the tutor covers is stuff I already know, I also came across a few photo editing apps I hadn’t known about, which was useful.
We had a class project, and we had to take seven photos around our neighbourhood. I live in a suburb so there’s not a massive amount to see compared to an urban environment, but I took a walk to the post office earlier and took some photos, although the last two are in my garden. My garden is sort of my neighbourhood! I thought I’d share them so you can see a bit of my life away from make up!
The sky was pretty obnoxious at this point – the weather has been awful for July, even for the UK!
I have no idea what this flower is but it’s really pretty – and my phone did a great job of picking up the details!
It’s pretty leafy around here, now I come to think about it.
This little bridge is pretty cute during the day…not so much at night.
See what I mean about an obnoxious sky?
This is where I started taking photos in the back garden. Among other things, we grow raspberries and they’re starting to ripen!
I sowed some Columbine seeds a while back and they’re starting to grow – I discovered this little spider among the leaves!
Incidentally, if you want to add me on Instagram, my username is icysedgwick. See you there!
What’s in your neighbourhood?
