Day 8 / 16 – Photo in a different location every day challenge
Location 8: Decoy Bomb Shelter, UK

In what was quite possibly the first time I have ever done it, today I took some ballet shoes with me to manoeuvre myself into position. When not frolicking bare foot in front of the camera, I’m normally stomping around in Dr Martens. Because I’ve loved DM’s for as long as I can remember and I own too many pairs…. The purple pair, the grey pair, the white pair, the black pair, the cherry blossom pair…. I have more but I’ll stop there, don’t want to look obsessed 😉 (Even though through typing about DMs I totally did not end up looking at them on the internet. That did not happen…)

Anywhoo, the purpose of the ballet pumps was because I wasn’t too sure what the state of the floor was going to be like. kB came with me and then proceeded to spook me by saying “Watch out for needles” (Of which I didn’t see or come across any so no worries!). I waddled across the floor and up the pile of rubble and perched at first because I wasn’t too comfortable sitting down; but then I got over that, took my shoes off and went for it!

Kudos for kB suggesting I block out the light rather than reaching for it, but minus points for him as he said the hand needed to be closer to my face. As I can’t see what I look like in camera I followed his instructions and took a few with my hand closer… Only to get home and see that the position of my hand totally blocked out any light on my face! So I had this shot or a reaching for the light shot to work with.

This is nowhere near what I had in mind for today, but we went out for a walk and I came over all hot and ill feeling so we went home.
I’d taken about 3 shots with my fisheye lens whilst out, wasn’t happy with them on their own so set out in Photoshop. Had the idea to photograph an open book and combine the two and here we are.

Grand Prix time so another walk for me. Lovely sunny day – although in truth is was too hot. Far too hot.

The floor was covered in ants. Where ever I went in the woods. Ants ants ants everywhere.
Not that I’ve ever really let something like that bother me, so down I sat.
Seeing as I am Queen of Being Stung, Bitten and Falling Over, of course I have a bite on my bum now : ( Itchy itchy itchy.

Went to my mum and dads for tea and we had a BBQ and key lime pie. Good god I love key lime pie so much.
