Smiles All Round.

Ellie Jay Turkana Grocott.

I have spent 20 years on this planet, mainly living in the wondrous place that is Devon.
I don't fully understand Tumblr, but i shall give it a go!

I appreciate good photography, i can take an alright photo or two myself and i have an amazing boyfriend that adores it.

Most photo's taken by me will be from my iPhone, unless Lee let's me loose on his camera!

The four things i love in life are Lee, Animals, Music and the people close to me. and maybe cheese, but i won't count that.

I’m incredibly blessed when it comes to life right now. Not only am I lucky enough to be with the man of my dreams, but I am in the early stages of progressing with my absolute dream career. These are two photo’s I took from my first day volunteering as an education intern at Paignton Zoo. I was told there wouldn’t be much hands on work with the animals, but within the first 3 hours, I had already clambered into the Giant Tortoise enclosure and conversed with Timmy (I say conversed, he wasn’t much of a talker), and had the privilege of feeding and stroking the giraffes. Although the work I’ll be doing over the next 6 months will revolve around educating others about conservation, and of course all the simple things like the names of the animals plus many ridiculous questions, I am in at the zoo. I plan on fully expressing my love of being there, and how I would adore to work with larger animals as a career. I also get to do the talks about the cheetah(s? I was told one died the other week, even though I had no idea there was two in the first place! I should probably check that one) which is my all time favourite animal. To finish, I am one lucky girl. I will give both my boyfriend, and my job, my full, undivided love and attention.
