pretty lost.

the bus trip on the way there.

 I visited my friend's house last week.

We met up after our classes, visited Tesco to grab some ginger cookies (which she loved) and green tea, then caught a bus together which brought us to the last stop.

We got off and I realised what a pretty place we were at!
'You live here?' I asked her. 
"Yeah,' she said nonchalantly. 'Why?'
'It's such a pretty place!'
We climbed up a gentle slope, trudged through some mud (I got stung by some thistles along the same way back. At least I think it was thistles. It was the weirdest thing ever. As the bush swung towards me and slapped my hand, I felt the craziest sting, except that when I looked at it I wasn't quite sure whether something actually stung me because there was no trace of anything. "I think I got stung," I told her. She stopped in her tracks and came to have a look. "But there isn't anything there," she observed. "I can feel it though," I said. "I'm sorry," she replied.), and came out in a small residential area.

This was the impromptu shoot I had with her. It was lovely fun.

reaching out.

And the last one... I know there's a stupid twig in the way of her grinning face, but I just love this one so much that I have to put it up.
