Day 24 – 30 Days Wild

Behind the Scenes: Video for the Wild I chose the mystery location for yesterdays' video, because I grew up a short walk away from it and was inspired by an episode of Countryfile where Anita Rani showcases rural Bradford 😛  Incase you've not seen the video, I'll not ruin the 'surprise' with naming it.  It's where I… Continue reading Day 24 – 30 Days Wild

Day 19 – 30 Days Wild

"admire the setting sun"   Today I chose to admire the setting sun.  I had been at work, plus a couple things didn't go to plan - so it was a nice relaxed way to end the day.  I took these pictures from my friend's flat (again, with my mobile). I then went up Rubery Hill… Continue reading Day 19 – 30 Days Wild
