Bloggers Blog Party - July 2015

July 2015's Secret Life of Bloggers Blog Party post. Thanks to the large amount of pictures I took last month, I had a healthy selection from which to choose:

Wednesday 1st July: This is a view from one of my college's classrooms. The rest of the class and I, along with our Sociology teacher, were once forced to use this room for a lesson when noisy maintenance took place outside our usual room. Last month, however, I was merely patiently waiting in here.

Thursday 2nd July: This is a hi-rise building at my bus stop in Nottingham. I didn't see it much during the winter months because I used the stop in the Broadmarsh in that time. When the days lengthened, I returned to this stop to maximise my bus ride.

Friday 3rd July: A few college friends and I went to T.G.I. Friday's for dinner, where I ate this succulent Warrior Burger. My grandmother had joked to "eat a burger for [her]"; as the Warrior Burger is almost two burgers, I did as she asked! My friends and I enjoyed our evening.

Wednesday 8th July: While out walking I noticed this poster for a Jess Glynne concert. I was annoyed because the concert occurred after my summer return to Northamptonshire and it would have been awesome to have seen Jess Glynne perform live - she's one of my favourite artists at the moment.

Friday 10th July: I wrote here about the repairs my grandfather made to my headphones. Sadly, since that post, the speaker that he didn't have to repair stopped working for some bizarre reason and I ended up disposing of my headphones.

Friday 17th July: I found this abandoned cucumber on a wall. No, I did not pick the cucumber up and take it with me.

Also on this day, I photographed this memorial plaque dedicated to Diana, Princess of Wales.

Saturday 18th July: My mother has taken up gardening; this is one of her peppers. She has also been growing tomatoes, of which she has a plethora.

Sunday 19th July: Remember the terrapin? It can be seen near the centre of this image when zoomed in. Speaking of "zoomed in", this was taken with my phone on maximum digital zoom. Not bad for maximum digital zoom!

Thursday 30th July: I performed some camera close-up tests with my phone; as such, I photographed my bed quilt.


  1. Nice photos! I'm glad to see you are exploring the capabilities of your camera/phone. That burger looks amazing.

    1. One of the fun things about having a new phone is testing its camera. :)

      It was delicious. :) Walked or worked it off the next day.

  2. Very awesome pictures, Andrew! I especially love the bell pepper. Your mother really does have a green thumb. :)

    I know I say it every time, but your pictures really make me want to visit the UK!

    1. Thanks! :) Yes, Mum has done an excellent job with her plant-growing ways.

      Will be glad when you do! :D
