You know those times when people tell you to stop trying and you will never be disappointed? Well, that’s exactly that mantra that I’ve been living with at the moment and I honestly think I am a better person for doing so!
I am a firm believer in the proverb “Everything happens for a reason“, so learning to let go of the pressure and just get on with it has become something of the norm to me! I think by letting things go their own way is one of the most easy ways to live, letting nature take it’s course and leave life’s decisions down to fate.
On Sunday, I had a day off and the weather was divine, so I decided to venture to Richmond Park and get some shots for my Magazine University Project.
The concept of the magazine is a health and fitness guide which doesn’t support the idea of diets or supplements but reinforces the importance of keeping healthy – by regular exercise and eating right.
I decided to go for a brisk walk to Richmond Park to capture some images of the various places to go for a run/walk/cycle and I am so glad I did.
The beauty of the park is something that I have completely overlooked since being placed just a stone’s throw away for University.
Sometimes just going to a place like this is enough to calm you down, cleanse the soul and create inner peace with any problems or troubles going on in your life.
I just walked. And walked. Taking photos as I went along to capture the stunning picturesque park in all it’s glory.
The sun was shining high in the sky and it was pretty warm, it was a perfect day to see the park to it’s full potential and document my walk with images that I am proud of.
I only managed to walk a little bit (I checked on Google Maps when I got home!) and I was completely astonished by the sheer size and density of the park itself. It covers over 3.5 square miles and is around three times the size of Central Park in New York – just to put that into perspective for you guys!
Whilst I was there, my phone died so I was just able to wallow in the beauty of the place and get beyond my thoughts, taking steps further and further into the stunning wilderness that swallows you up and throws you out somewhere new.
Here’s a few of my photos I took whilst there – bearing in mind they were taken on my iPhone 5, I think I captured some great shots. I’d love to know what you think.
