Better Photo Project 365 #07

Hatfield Galleria at duskIt’s not the best photo this week, snapped at dusk as we climbed to the top of the car park at Hatfield Galleria after seeing the new LEGO movie. (And for those of you wondering, yes, it is worth seeing – very cool indeed). I’ve doctored it in picmonkey as best I can, but it’s still grainy – an iPhone in the dark is not the photographer’s best friend.

But I took it because it impressed me with its drama on a stormy evening. And there is a story. My children are fans of the top levels. Apparently I am quite a good mum. Quite. Not excellent, because I tend to park wherever I see a space, such is the desire to get on with whatever comes next in my day. My daughter made this observation recently:

“When I’m a mum I’m going to be really nice to my children and always take them to the top level, just to make them happy.”

So last weekend we drove past empty spaces, up ramps I never knew existed, right to the top of the wind-blown uppermost level. I’m glad we did, because now I know what the top of Hatfield Galleria looks like. Pretty cool!

In other news this week, Valentine’s Day saw Actually Daddy forgo his usual dash into town for late-night, last-minute chocolate shopping, and plan ahead with this little gem:

Hashtag: the perfect gift for a social media addictWhat more could a social media fan need than their very own hashtag?

  1. I love that photo Helen regardless of it being taken on a mobile. Nothing like a dramatic sky! The Lego movie sounds great, I bet GG and Bug loved it. Brilliant present from Jason – your very own hashtag. Awesome 🙂

  2. I always have to take mine to the top level too, which is fine when it is dry, not so much in the howling wind and driving rain!
    We cannot wait to see the Lego Movie

  3. wow that hashtag is very cool and i love that you display your awards in full view rather than in the downstairs toilet lol xx

  4. Your own hastag, WOW, #iamjealous lol What a great gift! Great picture grainy or not, sometimes we only have our cell phones and need to capture the moment. I think it adds a great effect to be grainy in this scenario!
