There has been an on-going debate for some time now as to whether technology helps bring us closer together or not. Writing this post seems especially topical today, with the current debate about the use of mobile phones in schools, prompted by the start of the new academic year.

Clearly it helps us stay in closer contact with family and friends who might not be located nearby and the rise of social media has seen a number of tools and apps that have encouraged more of this type of communication.

As we’re now well into the Summer holiday period, many of us have been enjoying the opportunity to take some time out. Whether you’re going away or taking a ‘staycation,’ a simple change from the daily routine of life is hugely beneficial.

Of course, the dominant theme of this Summer here in the UK has been the weather, with the extended period of hot, dry conditions ensuring we are all relishing our national pastime of discussing the latest weather forecast.

Chanel Photographs

Chanel Howard Self Portrait

Chanel Howard spent a short time at David Salisbury during her gap year between school and college. Since then she has spent time in Romania as a volunteer for a charity.
 
She is now at Manchester City College studying for a diploma in art and photography. I thought it would be nice to exhibit some of her pictures here.
