It depends which way you look

Bonjour (That's hello for all you none French folk;)
 I was walking with my brother the other day, and it was very sunny and spring like and I looked around for a while, and where I live (though I'm lucky to live in a nice area) in general gets a very bad reputation, and I was in the centre of a very busy park (imagine it as the central park of Hull, though not quite as big. Or nice. So not really like that at all) and I was watching the world go by. Everyone was so busy and people weren't really appriciated that it was a nice day with actual warmth in the sun for the first time in about nine months.
I took this opportunity to (again) take several pictures, I've chosen a few that I think show it off best:)

These where taken at Beverley Westwood, and East Park in Hull, the majority of you won't know where they are, but that's okay, just know that when people say that all of Hull (and the surrounding area) is run down and grotty, they don't know where to look. My brother said something to me as we crossed the bridge over the water, because as you look out one way, it's muddy grass and wasteland, but when you look across the other way there's tree's just coming into blossom and the water that looks like it glitters in the sun, and Harry said "look at that, it's like life, there's good and bad, it just depends which way you turn your head." I though that was a pretty deep analysis for a twelve year old.
Also bare in mind that I'd just got back from New York City when I took these pictures, so the contrast was astounding, but although I miss it like crazy, and I'd give anything to go back, this is my home town, and it always will be ;)
See you all soon chums ;)

It's been a while

Hi Guys! 
It's been a while, as I'm sure you're all aware, but I wanted to start this blog up again and actually keep on top of it because blogging is something I love doing, it's just finding the time.
So as I'm sure many of you guys are aware last week I went to New York City and it was honestly one of the best weeks of my life! I had such a good time, I saw so many amazing and moving things and I'd do it all again without thinking about it.
This post isn't going to have a deep and thoughtful meaning, I just wanted to share my experience with you guys on the internet in a way that wasn't a video or an instagram post, so I thought back to my blog and well that's what I'm doing!
So I was out and about on the streets of Manhattan for six days, and in those six days I took a considerable amount of photos, I'm not going to share them all with you, or I'd probably double the capacity of the internet, I'll just show you my favourites:

 These are just a couple of my favourites!
Whilst I was there I learned a lot, and not specifically educational, it's a different lifestyle completely over there, especially compared to me who lives in a tiny town in suburban England, it was a really different way of life and I loved it! So to anyone reading out there in the US, believe me when I say you do it different over there (you definitely do pancakes better!!) But I had such an amazing week and I really want to share that with the internet, whether you care or not, because I think blogging and youtube is an amazing way to look back on the best memories, because often the best memories are the ones you don't know you're making!
So I'll see you around very soon chums!
