This week an old friend of Ruaridh’s, Tom, came to visit and stayed overnight at our flat here in Edinburgh.
For our first (and only) houseguest, Ruaridh and I went all out. And by that I mean we managed to source a twin size mattress and make space for it on our living room floor since we don’t have a couch, just a loveseat. It was very slumber party-esque having a pallet on the floor.
Oh and also because we put on face masks at 1AM after we got home from the bars.
My face feels soft like a baby now! Hollaaaaaaa!
But I digress.
The next morning, with our supple skin glowing, the three of us decided to take advantage of the sunny Edinburgh afternoon and take a trip to the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.
Because Tom & I are both new to photography, it was also the perfect spot to practice taking photos. We saw lots of people walking around with their cameras.
How neat is this photo that Ruaridh took of a small waterfall in the gardens?
Because he used a long exposure, he was able to get that lovely silky effect for the moving water. As opposed to what it would normally look like in a photo.
I must learn how to do that (amongst many other photography skills)!
It was a beautiful (and free!) autumn day out. I love being able to actually see the seasons progressing, unlike in Texas. For the most part I think the leaves in Texas go from green to dead to disintegrated.
Womp womp womp.
But oh no. Not here.
Not up in here!
