For this month’s challenge I want you to look back in time, to your childhood memories. For many of us, being a Princess may have been a young girl’s dream and others may have been more keen on Pirates and the Great Outdoors. Still, that little girl is a part of your Inner Princess, her innocence and wonder, her dreams and imaginings. Take some time this April to get in touch with her. Dig up old photos and diaries, talk to your parents about what they remember of you as a child. If you still have them, look over your favourite toys and books. Visit old places you used to live and play. Get in touch with that younger self and what she loved, dreamed of and wished for. You may like to write about some memories or share photos of your favourite possessions or of your little self!This challenge wants me to look at my childhood. I still live in the same house I did when I was 4, and I’m something of a hoarder so I still have a lot of things! Only recently have I been beginning to give or throw away any of my childhood joys.
Recently I bought a new, good quality camera. My old camera was a hand-me-down from my grandmother, and only about 3MP. As much as megapixels aren’t everything to look for in a decent to good quality camera, 3MP really shows the poor quality of the camera through the grainy photographs it produces. My new camera, though not a professional one by far, has 10.1MP and a 1600ISO, though I’ve heard it’s not advised to use both settings so high with this particular model. Nevermind, this is much, much better than my phone camera! I used to use my phone’s camera, but when I sold my phone for a new one, the new camera was lesser quality than the first one. I sold it to my nana, though, so I would often steal it for a few minutes if I wanted to take a photo for my poupéegirl account or Livejournal.
The days of this are gone, now! I’ve been busily taking photos of many things (mainly my jewellery, since the quality was just too poor to pick up the shine in my gold and silver without blurring the photo). Here are a few things from my flickr.~April Princess Challenge with this pretty new thing in my possession
