 A good friend turned 21 last week and to celebrate, she planned a weekend trip to the west coast of Scotland.

 Without too much thought as to where we were going exactly (never mind how to get there), I hoped in the rental car with my newly acquainted German driver - her first time in Scotland - and hit the road. 

A four hour drive isn't that long, nor really that far. I think just the perfect distance.

Silence, clear water, and a big rolling sky. 

Fresh air never felt so fresh... I think, just what is needed to clear the mind and set that ticker back to 0.

It's getting super cold, and to celebrate this, my sister and I decided to have a day out on the coast, complete with ice creams (yolo).

It's been nearly a couple of weeks since I last updated my posts which is terrible! However I feel I can justify this due to my current back and forth lifestyle + additional dose of freshers flu :(. Having decided to stay in Fife with the parents for term time, (save save save mentality) I am now your regular sofa-surfing train traveling wifi hunter, commuting to Edinburgh whenever I have class, which (typically) now appears to be more or less every day. We'll see how this one pans out... 

In other news, I want to say a massive congrats to Stylonylon on winning the Free People Guest UK Blogger competition! If you haven't already, check out her blog posts on the Free People site here. It was super fun taking part and definitely has inspired me to blog more, and by doing so, learn more. Tonight I'm going to a photography club in Edinburgh to pick up some photo tips and meet some more photo lovers- I'm really excited!! 

I've been so ill with the cold that today was the first time in what feels like agesss that I ventured outside (ahh fresh air). Coughing and wheezing all the way down to the braes in my village I took my camera to try capture a bit of this awesome autumn-y day. Leaves gathering at the curb of the pathway, First Aid Kit on shuffle, trees thinning out to reveal the ice blue water of the Tay behind them.. I'm getting very excited for my favourite season!!!

I've started to make these '30 second films'. Well, I've only made a couple but my intention is to make two or three a week. They don't mean anything, there's no elaborate story line or double meaning, they just try to 'capture' something... an emotion, a feeling, an atmosphere. Also they're not always 30 seconds, this one is from my bike ride today and its over double the length I set, but ho hum what can you do. Anyway, more to come soon hopefully x

Finally got my film developed from my trip to the Isle of Mull & Iona. Plenty of photographs to flick through and make a collage or two, but for now I'm so sleepy, they'll have to wait till tomorrow...

I met a friend in Edinburgh on my day off this week, and was planning to take a load of pictures of the festival, maybe see a few free shows, but we were chatting for so long that I realised I only had half an hour for my train, so only managed to take a few pics and missed out on seeing any shows. Typical, but ack well there's always next year.. Here is a flash of what it's like
walking up and down the Royal Mile during the festival:

Definitely the best time to visit - <3 the Fringe
