#capturingtheday – the hashtag for everyone!
“Forever is composed of nows” ~ Emily Dickinson
I have always loved photographs, as a girl I used to spend hours looking through photo albums. I loved how it prompted me to recall memories – good and bad.
These days, I am more inclined to look at these photos – and videos – on a phone or ipad. However, the joy that I get from this is still the same. I often marvel at how much the boys of grown, or how young I look in some of the photos I look at (although I still feel in my early twenties, those days are sadly behind me!).
Anyone that has followed my Instagram account will have noticed that I have discovered a new passion for this platform. I have loved sharing snaps of the monkey’s adventures and showing a different element of our life. I feel this platform provides me with an outlet that I am unable to capture fully through my blog.
The hashtag communities I have discovered have taken me by surprise. There are so many incredible photos being shared.
There is so much talent out there. I love having that glimpse into people’s lives.
The sun setting behind the fountain in Trafalgar Square. It really was a glorious day for strolling about the city. #London #londonphoto #trafalgarsquare #fountain #water #sunsunset #pblogger #ukparentbloggers #rememberingthesedays #summer #summerholiday #instalondon #insta_london #ldn #water #waterfountain #summerinthecity
So with this all in mind I am SOOO excited to be able to announce a new hashtag community as I partner up with one of my best blogging friends, Gem at Life is Knutts.
Anyone following my blog will have heard me mention Gem and her fabulous work before. She is one of the funniest and kindest people I have met since I started this crazy blogging journey.
