Like something out of a dream...

The title may seem a little're probably thinking: Explain yourself Gina! It's not that mystical actually...I probably just chose it to be provocative ;) Well, the long and short of it is that we had an afternoon which was just amazing and it came totally out of no where.

Literally, we were trudging through the usual grey, cloudy school days and suddenly WHAM: Blue skies, sunshine, warmth! We'd been planning on going to the river anyway for my photography A2 (I'm doing portraiture) but it was like God had suddenly blessed us - an example of his grace, totally undeserved favour!

The sun was so perfect, it made my pictures ten times better than what they would have been without it. And these guys were just so natural and willing and just flipping awesome!

We started off at my house, just picking a spot and snapping a photo. We grabbed a few props - a twee and quite cheesy basket of flowers and a book, and began to stoll around school. Eventually though our wandering feet took us through daffodils, berries, trees and down to the river where we found such a picturesque little spot - a guarenteed picnic site for next term.

'The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
Psalm 19




Thank you sunshine, thank you friends, thank you God!
