Exciting Times!

Well I have officially finished my degree! It’s taken four years but I got there and I’m damn chuffed!

However that is not the topic of this post, that will come later on tomorrow, today it’s about a design company named VIDA that supports hundreds of millions of people [in countries like Pakistan] that are building the products in the fashion industry with their hands and are struggling to get out of the cycle of poverty, they provide education to these people and supply them with the groundwork they need to break that cycle of poverty! It gives people a voice in their communities and the ability to create a better future for themselves and their families!

Last week a lovely lady from Vida contacted me and asked if I wanted to do collaborate with them and be part of their Voices collection! How amazing is that?! So I done my research on the company and couldn’t see any problems with it, so I sent in some images for their moderation and now they’re available on their site, with my own page! Here’s the URL =  http://shopvida.com/collections/voices/emma-powell

Have a little look, some of my more recent work from ‘Anti-Bodies’ (that I haven’t written a post on yet, but will do tomorrow) are available on tops and scarves! Along with some seascapes I shot in Egypt last year! If this selection are successful I intend on putting a few more up.. Well hopefully.

In order to keep my work on there I have to get three pre-orders of each item! Which I am extremely hopeful to reach!

Here’s a few more of the details:

All items/designs of three pre-orders or more will be shipped to you within 60 days, they are all handmade items and profits from sales go to a good cause! A minimum of three pre-orders need to be made for production to begin.

I have 15 days to get my first set of pre-orders so if you like these items don’t hesitate to order one.. or more 😉 and please share, comment, talk about this post so anyone that would be interested in them will have the chance to buy one! I would be even more thrilled if I could see these designs being produced, so any help in with publicity on this post would be great!

There’s a lot more of them but you’d have to go to my facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/emzpowellphotography

If you do get the chance to get on there please give my page a like.

Thank you =]

Actually had a few minutes spare for this

As promised I got a few shots from the chocolate pieces I had from the Bristol Chocolate Festival =], I still don’t want to eat any of them mind.

What do they actually look like they’re made from? What do you think?

Starting with my favorite =]

Now to get on with some work, not too much left to do.

Feeling the wear and tear…

Well again I’ve over done it… Can’t seem to get the hang of slowing down…. However with all the work building up and the deadlines getting closer I think I need to carry on, then rest up and recharge my ‘spoons’ (for you who don’t understand that term take a look at http://www.butyoudontlooksick.com/wpress/articles/written-by-christine/the-spoon-theory/ it’s in relation to the illness Lupus that I was blabbering on about in my previous post) so if you ever hear me going off about my spoons that’s what it  is about (to think I’ve actually been a bit apprehensive about mentioning all this on here but I’m not too shy about it now =].

Well over the last day or so we’ve had a tad bit more snow…. Oh the joy, makes everything more difficult with getting on with these projects, even though I did manage to get out and take some photos in the snow and managed to get this lovey picture of Storm(my dog).

Been Busy, Busy, Busy…

Well it’s been a busy weekend for me and a good one, my cousin took my shopping to find something ready for my birthday =D, then after a hours rest I decided to approach my desire to try my hand at astronomical photography… My first attempt, as usual, wasn’t very successful…

DSC_0331I traveled to Port Talbot, to go to the beach to get some thinking it would be dark enough to get a few… But as you can see I got a lot of glare from the lights following the coast.

So I tried a different angle, which I had a lot more benefit from.

I even managed to capture some fog in the shot which I found gave the image a more ethereal feel to it.

Following these shots I though about taking a few of the surrounding area(not going to put my favorite photo up, thinking of using it in one of the other projects for uni… maybe) but just for you to get an idea.

DSC_0349Finally at about 11:30pm the decision was made to visit one of my most adored location for star gazing and managed to get this.

Not to sure what to make of it yet… Any views or comments??
