In life there is always the question 'if you could go back and do anything again or see anything again what would it be?' Well I once scrunched up a piece of paper, tightly into a ball, i was on my own and in a massive studio at college. The bin, a good 15 meters from where i was sat down, i thought there is no way im going to get this, but i went for it anway, slouched on my chair i through the ball, i watched as it turned and rotated during flight. It landed straight in the bin, completely silent, no one was around, I stood up and looked around for recognition but alas. If i could go back in time Lexi i would watch myself do that one more time...

when I was about 5 I was riding my friends bike with him and he neglected to tell me the breaks didn't work.
I was caning it down a hill, then realized I had nothing to stop with so just when as softly as I could into this garage door.
Needless to say, I put a big ol' dent in the garage door and my head and smashed this bike to shit.
I'd have to say I'd love to see that one again!

Um the last time I went to glastonbury I didn't take a camera and that was a massive mistake not getting beyonce on camera or watching coldplay live right near the front when they released paper butterflies into the air and it was beautiful gave me goosebumps

Ok here goes: About to leave for a night with my uni housemates out once we had a drink or five. Whilst waiting for a taxi in the hall all of a sudden the noticeboard fell off the wall randomly then one of my housemates just started jumping on it as if this poor noticeboard had offended her family. Definitely wish I had caught this mentalness on camera! We had splinters for a week! haha xxx

'When my Dad came home from working in Brazil for a month, like he did every other month, he tiptoed behind me, picked me up and swung me round. He put his hand out and so did I, and my hand fitted perfectly into his palm. Then he whispered in my ear "See, I always come back". He passed away when I was 10 and although I can't remember the majority of my childhood, that always sticks in my memory'

definitely travelling - wish i had had an underwater camera at some of the islands because they were so picturesque!
Also in India when i wanted to take pictures of some of the poverty stricken conditions but didn't take any 1. because i didn't want my camera stolen and 2. because i didn't want to offend! XXX

I went skiing with my dad and his girlfriend, he hadn’t skied before and the instructor was showing him how to snow plow, but his skies actually crossed completely and he lost all control and stacked it down the mountain.

Wrote this a few months back , when i met the only person that made me happy in years, but she had to go as she was just passing trough being on her holiday. I spend every day with her for 3 and half weeks and I can't go and see her cause i ain't go the money and the USA will not give me a working visa, so here it goes.

The Internal exile

Wow I’m sick of doubt, I’m sick of fear
I feel the concrete’s slowly creeping,
My mind is crowded, I need to go

I sense another broken heart is added the realm of pain
And as a fuse needs the spark, the heart needs to melt
Revolving in a whirlpool of lost dream, the actor’s soul rests on the poets’ guitar

Now he’s falling through the cracks and he can’t touch the sides,
Love is out of reach, Bybylon is burning
He’s grown to be one more statistic living the gigantic lie

He lights his last cigarette anticipating the shadow play to take place,
Illuminated fears spread around the fragile corners of his mind,
The dream is over, the internal exile has began

i think a moment in time i always wanted to capture is my dreams everything else seems fairly routine

When I went on holiday to Kenya in 2008 with my family, through out the holiday I had tried fooling my mother by saying "oh look a lion" when there wasn't one. At first she started looking but she then caught on to my lies. Then one time, I was sat in the car by myself, my mother just outside. I heard the the russelling of a packet (we had bought some ginger nuut biscuits for snacking) so I began to look over my seat - concerned. Then I saw a monkey, a black and white one sat in the seat snacking on some ginger nuts. I started calling my for my mum, quietly telling her there was a monkey in the car eating ginger nuts. She didn't believe me. I then said "I'm being serious", my mother walked up to the open door (where the monkey got it). For a moment I saw his face look up at mine, with a ginger nut stuffed in his mouth, and I saw guilt mixed with fear in his eyes. Just as my mother realised a monkey was actually in the car and started to pull her camera up from around her neck, the monkey traded the pack of ginger nuts for a bar of Kenya's finest dairy milk and ran off to the trees to show his friends the treasure he had collected. You know what they said about the boy (girl) who cried wolf (monkey)

Apart from having a camera around to prove that my boyfriend was wrong in certain situations :) I'd love t have the moments on film, when i realised certain insights. For instance, things aren't always as bad as they seem, yu won't die if a relationship ends, you can't change someone unless they want to, the world isn't always fair and, i can be wrong, well, occasionally lol

i'd love to of captured the first few times that me and my boyfriend first saw eachother.
i can hardly remember them, party because our first few meetings were intoxicated but i would love to see his expression and what he first thought of me! this is a cool question i love this kinda stuff

when i was younger i moved to japan and i have no photos of this. i have a foggy memory and as a child i thought the city was like something from out of space, like so surreal it could of been fake or a movie. like i swear i thought i saw a spaceship.
would love some photos of this time

when i got mugged. i wish i got a photo of that

Anonymous said...

I wish i had more photographs of times spent with my grandpa when i was younger, so that now that he's gone and the memories are fading, i'd always have a photo to help me remember. My mum also says these were some of the best times but without a photograph there hard to remember.

I wish I captured more everyday happenings on camera and not just pictures from nights out. So many funny things happen from day to day but you never think to take photos.

i'd love to have captured the looks on his face, in particular, the look that's shared between two people when everything else is a blur. the look that says "i love you", and a whole lot more. the ones that noone else saw, but meant more than any words. whether it was across a room, or up close, i wish i'd captured those moments.

one time was when I was swimming at my beach house near Lorne in Australia and a pod of dolphins popped up and we played around with them for about half an hour, was fairly incredible.

Hope that's of use?!

Watching my 17 year old daughter rush to the train to see her boyfriend. She looked so beautiful and confident and I was so pleased with myself on how she had turned out. A moment I will treasure forever....

in Malaysia, driving along a road when we got stopped by a load of monkeys in the street. we got out and started feeding them some nuts we had.. one monkey snuck up behind me and tapped me on the leg so I turned round and his monkey partner in crime ran up and stole the whole bag of nuts I was holding the cheeky..... he jumped in a tree and sat eating them staring at me, laughing

my dreams! i always want to capture my dreams for longer, there so random and wild but i can never completely remember them. if i had a camera in my head recording my dreams that would be the best thing ever

OK, soppy central:

January 6th 2007- Kensington, London.
I was on a first date with a man who, in future, would become my live-in boyfriend and the man who inspires me every day. After a long walk round the V&A to see the vintage fashion exhibition (his idea!), we went for food at a little French cafe. I was SO nervous I felt like I would puke if I ate. He looked so gorgeous, so well dressed and I was literally swooning! I opted for a little almond coisant in the cafe. The coisannt was covered in icing sugar and, typical Hollie-Anne style, I managed to get it all over my lips. I wish I could have captured his smile as he told me I had a little something on my mouth. He doesn't know this but that smile made my heart skip a beat and I knew I'd do anything in the world to make sure I always had that smile in my life. In some ways, I'd want to capture that smile/moment on camera more than our romantic first kiss in the rain that happened later on in the day because that smile meant he accepted and like clumsy, silly and messy little old me.

The end.

last year me and my friends decided to backpack around Europe, i remember a lot of the photographs i took on the trip, purely because every photo looked like it belonged in a frame and couldn't wait to show everyone back home my travels, i remember a photograph whilst on a gondola in Venice of the open ocean at the edge of the city where it separates off, an amazing, one of a kind view, i felt so lucky to be doing that all summer, sadly i lost my camera after that day, would love to have evidence of this....

After being a Midwife for many years, I wondered how I would feel when I would hold my own newborn baby. I need not have worried, this surge of unconditional love came the very second the midwife placed her in my arms...

When the Consultant told us my mum had cancer, I felt as if my world came crashing down. I can only describe it as my world had 4 walls and then at that moment my world only had 3.

My daughter was playing rough and tumble with her dad. I commented her dad always made her laugh and I was the boring parent.

She said you're right mom, you dont make us laugh, you just make everything alright. Wonderful...
