Two in one at the spa

Week 11 was a busy one as I was travelling around London and then Birmingham with not much time to shoot. I took my camera and a light to Birmingham in case our hotel room was nice, but it wasn't - in fact I'm sorry to say it was quite dated and small, but the hotel had a spa and I managed to take a photo on the Fuji X30 from across the other side of the leisure centre, lol.

WEEK 11Composition: Negative SpaceMinimize the composition to isolate your subject. The composition should be simple, thereby drawing your viewer to the subject.
So that was the brief for one challenge - I balanced the camera, (much smaller and easier than the DSLR) on some towels on the floor and held the remote shutter in my hand. To capture the negative space around me, I shot my final selfie here at 16mm.

The other photographic challenge was: "Once upon a time there was ........ I want you to tell me a fairytale, but specifically your very own fairytale & it doesn’t have to be a happily ever after....." 

Great! So once there was a girl who went to The Photography Show at the NEC Birmingham and she bought all kinds of cool things she'd always wanted.. and a pretty bohemian patterned camera strap because she could.. and caught up with loads of friends. And then she came back to the hotel, had a glass of wine and slipped into the spa.. the end! 
If that's not a fairytale, I don't know what is ♥

I'm basically lazy and have offered the same photo for both challenges :)
