For my birthday last year, Riaan surprised me with tickets to the Harry Potter Studio Tour at the Warner Brothers Studios just outside of London.
There is only one sentence to describe this guy…Best Husband EVER!!!
I had the most amazing time at the studio and I still find it quite hard to believe that one person created this entire magical world that so many muggles love. It’s pretty damn inspiring! Follow your dreams people! (me included!)
Being in the studio, seeing all of the props and the special effects that go into making movies made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. You know, like the movie world actually is this magical place that can conjure spectacular things out of nothing. It was so fascinating. Jaw dropping even.
I left there feeling like I need to see more of this. The world is so big and varied and opportunities really are endless. Gotta get working on seeing more of the world, not just places, but inspiring things – things like this.
So I wanted to share some of the photos with you guys because, even though they are dimly lit and some are a little fuzzy, it’s the memories that count, and this was definitely the most magical day of my year :)
Here it goes, no captions, just photos.
We also took some footage with our newly acquired GoPro – it’s not the best cinematography AT ALL – you only learn about image stabilisation, camera angles and all those lovely things when you watch back your own videos and realise how bad they are. LOL. BUT it does give a better feel for the whole experience than the photos do, even though its a bit wobbly. You know what they say… Practice makes perfect!
Hope you enjoyed the photos!
