I am starting up my ‘Monthly Favourite’ posts again as I made a few last year but wasn’t as consecutive with my blog posts as I am now, so from this point on I plan to make this a regular post in the month! Lots of exciting things occurred in the month of January, being the new year of 2017 I have a few things to share with you all.
Last weekend my boyfriends friend from Amsterdam came to visit, while she was down we showed her round all of London and the typical landmarks which it’s famous for! She really wanted to go to the Zoo so after meeting up with a few of her UK friends we all headed off to the ZSL London Zoo near Regents park. I have been there quite a few times over the years but to be quite honest, who doesn’t love the zoo and all the cute animals *.*
*Quick Tip* If you plan on going with a friend, you can buy a discount voucher which allows you to buy one ticket and get another free! Simply check out this site – daysoutguide.co.uk. It has all of the London attractions you can go see at a discounted rate if you travel via the National Rail!
We arrived at the Zoo and the first area we explored was the Reptiles enclosure, as my boyfriend is currently obsessed with bugs… Boys what can you do aye? I took a bunch of photographs while I was there to get some more Manual camera practice in, as it’s very easy to keep using the Auto mode and still capture a great shot. Using my trusty old Canon 6OOD with a 50mm lens F1.8, one day I will own a F1.4 I simply need that bokeh… ❤
These lil’ froggies were so cute and funny! Some of them were in water tanks and the lil’ guy just kept swimming all the way up to the top and then dived all the way back down, at one point he dived down so quickly I think he knocked him self out when he hit the glass at the bottom, gosh it was a funny sight to see!Read More »
