Nostalgia is a strange thing, isn't? We don't remember the past as it was, rather how we want it to be. It is hard for me to fall into the 80's nostalgia bandwagon, as I do remember it quite clearly and it definitely wasn't like they show it in all those TV series. We'd like to think we were all part of a close group of friends, ready to take on the world and living thousands of adventures. In a way, it was true. I spent my childhood days outside, playing games and letting my imagination run wild. No tablets, no Internet. Board games. Toys. Cards. Marbles.
But then, lots of open racism and discrimination, too. It definitely wasn't easy to be the token Asian girl in the group. At the end, these days were bittersweet: sure, we had a great time and it was friendship at its purest form. Yet, none of it survived the years. In matter of weeks, months, years... Everything was gone, all was forgotten.
What about those kids? Will it be the same for them? Will they remember 2018 as the sweetest year of their lives, the time they spent hours playing at the fountain Square?
Would I go back to them days? No. Because that would imply the best is behind me. I get more satisfaction by going forward, rather than mourn the days that never were.
California did not disappoint! 🌴
We were lucky enough to see some of the most beautiful sunsets while in Venice and Santa Monica. ✧✧✧✧✧✧✧✧✧✧✧✧✧✧✧✧✧✧✧✧✧✧
The food, weather, and nightlife exceeded our expectations! Until next time, Cali! ✌🏼

I thought I would do a review of the 4 years of winter work I have done in Lapland and see if I could pick out my favourite images. 'The Green Ghost' made it into the selection
Can you see the ghost?

As a wildlife and landscape photographer, I don’t take many pictures of people. However, for the last 8 years I have shot Lowde Fest, an annual event taking place in North Hampshire, run for the enjoyment of local families and featuring mainly young and aspiring musicians. Proceeds from the event go to the Lowde Music Trust.
Each year some more established stars headline the show. This is a shot of the RPJ band, headed up by Rick Parfitt Jnr who has some of the best session musicians around supporting his concerts. #rpjunior#lowdefest2018#jowebb#rockguitarists#band#festivalphotography#canonuk#liveforthestory
