I've already visited Chapel Allerton cemetery in Leeds over here on the blog, where I shot a few colour photographs and this whole roll of black and white using my little Mamiya 135EF, a handy little dude that easily fits in my pocket and shoots 35mm film with sharp brilliance.
I was a bit nervous about how these would come out, it was the first time I'd used my little Mamiya and it has fixed focal depths I was still working out.
... As you can see here, woops!
I'm loving these pictures though. Chapel Allerton Cemetery is such a special little hidden paradise, so many wild flowers and butterflies.
If you happen to be in Leeds with some spare time, get the bus up to Chapel Allerton and have a wander.
Check out the colour version of this Cemetery Tour - and while you're at it, why not browse the Cemetery Tour archives!
Pintrest recently without realising it. Babes, every one of them.
Insert a picture of yourself here as well, obviously <3

Matthew regularly frequents the Sunday Sessions events down at the Draft House on Charlotte St, and I'm always a bit jealous when he comes home with tall tales of epic food adventures so I let him drag me along to the event in June hosted by the Wild Beer Co. It featured a bunch of "sour beers" which apparently I enjoy, so why not.
Sunday Sessions is a good excuse to eat some nice food and drink some nice beer, as matched by the Draft House team in collaboration with a different brewery each time.
It all sounds a bit random, so I just went with it. The beers were pretty tasty, and the food was delicious.
Yeah that guy is smoking fish on a bar! It was all pretty chilled out. A perfect Sunday afternoon, maxin'n relaxin'.
I'm not a beer blogger (I leave that to the expert in our house) so I don't have much to say about this day, other than I could have eaten these butternut squash balls all day until I exploded and died. But I only got one. Insert a single, golden tear.
I just had a really nice afternoon, taking photographs and chatting with people, eating good food and having a few cold sour beers.
Looking back at these photographs, its funny to me that all of the colours are perfectly matching as well. Beetroot tart and blackcurrant beer - perfect. Also lets give this Basil Crème Brulee its moment to shine, I could literally eat tubs and tubs of this stuff.
I'm not sure I'd become a Sunday Sessions regular, just because I'm not generally a huge beer drinker (novelty sour/fruit beers aside) but I highly recommend popping down if you are. Its a good time.
Sunday Sessions are held at the Draft House on Charlotte St in central London. You can find out more on the Draft House website.
graze boxes are, but I just got a bunch of the Breakfast Variety boxes in and they have basically saved my life, so I wanted to give them a shout out.
I've been shooting for the every wonderful Oh Squirrel a lot this Summer, and she boy has she had a busy time cranking out wonderful new designs and what not. So busy she has even had me helping out as her studio assistant, which obviously, is an absolute joy. I love making badges.
She has been updating her store like woah with these new products and I wanted to share some of the photographs we worked together on.
These new tiny hen party badges are adorable, both spotty and stripey.
I love the new selection of fabrics she has chosen for these travel card cases.
Piles and piles of witty fabric tags. I like this unicorn one.
And check out these cool totes! These aren't up in the store, but if you want one just drop Katie an email and she will sort you out.
She's a pretty Squirrel as well. Reet good.
You can see more from Oh Squirrel on her website, or shop directly from her etsy store. If you or someone you know are looking for someone to help their products pop online with some new photographs, please get in touch. I'm available for this kind of thing and would love to get involved!
