I’m a bit of an amateur photographer – I studied photography at A Level, and it’s always been a hobby of mine. Snapshots is the feature where I share some of that photography! All of the photos link to my Flickr account, in case you’re interested in viewing more.
Today’s theme is: water.
At one of the millponds nearby.
Same millpond as above. The area is now a college for adults with learning disabilities, but most of the grounds are open to the public.
The Oude Rijn in Leiden, I will be moving to this beautiful city in a couple of weeks!

I love your first photo with the interesting light. I’m pretty bad at remembering to take photos, but I would like to be better at it!
Thank you 😀 If I’m going out for the day I tend to plan to take my camera, and sometimes I just like to take photography walks 🙂 But unless I’ve planned in advance, I don’t often just take spur of the moment photos, which is a shame 😦
Wow, these are all so pretty! I love the photograph of the bridge in France. The reflection is just so nice! I love the one in Leiden as well. Wish I could move to a city that pretty as well!
Wonderful photographs, Rinn! I can’t wait to see more! 🙂
Thank you Annie 🙂 I can’t wait to move there – 18 days now! 😮
I really like the second picture! It almost looks kind of creepy, like tentacles coming out of the water haha. Very nice job 🙂
Haha, I see what you mean! There’s an area around here, it was a small industrial site but now it’s abandoned, and there’s some seriously creepy stuff there. All these little metal sheds all overgrown, a tractor covered in vines, and this little brick building that I want to venture into but I’m too scared to go alone!
I love that picture of Leiden, it really captured the feel of the city. I studied psychology in leiden, although I never lived in the city. For a second I thought you where from the Netherlands as well, but your about me page tells me your studying dutch. Can I ask how it is to be studying dutch? I hear it’s a language that’s difficult to learn. If you ever need someone to practice your dutch, just let me know :).
And OMG you love Sanctum 2 as well! I just send you a friend request on steam! Sorry I went a bit off topic here, but it’s not often i meet a fellow book lover who also loves games and Sanctum!
Oh really? 😀 And nope, I’ll be moving there next week though – to go and study in Leiden! I really like learning Dutch actually, although I’m teaching myself which of course makes it trickier. I did seven years of German which I think has really helped, as often I can guess at words and phrases because of the German translation. Although some words are TOTALLY different 😛
Yes!! 😀 No problem, I love to meet fellow book lovers and gamers too!
My favourite one has to be the last one! Even though it’s so simplistic, the depth just brings so much meaning. I absolutely love photography too but I never get the chance to take my own photos. I love looking at good photography though. Photography like yours. *wink wink*
Hehe, thank you Laura 😀 Hopefully my stay in Leiden will provide lots of opportunities for more photography!
These photos are gorgeous!
I love photography, I’ve never had any training or anything so I kind of make it up as I go along, and sometimes I do think it’s just fluke when I get a great photo 😀
If any one wanted to have a look. A real mix of things, though usually not people I guess.
Thanks Kirsty 😀
Sometimes the best shots just require a quick response, or sometimes you think you’ve taken an okay photo – but once it’s uploaded, you’re surprised by the result! Most of the time mine is down to sheer quantity – I take a LOT of pictures, so at least a few have to be good, right? 😛
I’m already following you on Flickr *urges other people to* Go follow Kirsty!
