Lincoln in August 2013

August has been a month of changes for me.

At the start of the month…

I moved back to Lincoln from my parents house in Witney, Oxfordshire on 2nd August 2013. I hadn’t spent such a long time at home since I first moved to Lincoln (Three years ago) and I had forgotten how much I missed my family and loved being able to see them everyday. So, leaving was really hard but I was excited to be back in Lincoln and to start a new chapter of my life.

During this month…

As I don’t start my MSc until September I have had plenty of free time to enjoy being in Lincoln, especially in this lovely summer weather! I have always been one of those people who can’t sit still and must be doing something all the time. So this month I have had the opportunity to do all the things I love to do, but usually am too busy to do.

One thing I particularly love to do is take photos. Whether that is with my camera or iphone, I have become completely addicted to taking photos of everything this month. This has inspired me to start a monthly post which will contain a collection of my favourite photographs from that month. As it is coming to the end of August, here are my favourite photographs – all taken in and around Lincoln, UK in August 2013.
