Hi I’m Winnie!
Diamond Canopy began back in 2008, during my final year at university studying History of Art. My early posts featured a lot of mirror outfit shots, sharing my student purchases and blogging my daily thoughts.
Since then, the blog has evolved and become something I’m really proud of and no longer something I keep secret from friends and family. It’s been a lot of fun and through the blog I’ve experienced some amazing opportunities, become a better writer, a keen photographer and made some awesome life-long friends.
Here you’ll find me writing about my favourite things including trips to art galleries, food adventures, Chinese culture, holidays and trips back to my favourite city, Hong Kong. I love visual culture so pictures are an important part of my blog and I love nothing more than letting images do all the talking.
Frequently asked questions
What’s with the blog name?
I’ve considered changing my blog name a lot over the years. As a teen, I was the hugest Incubus fan and ‘Diamond Canopy’ is mentioned in this track to describe the night sky. It’s followed me from ancient MySpace accounts and MSN messenger and for now, it’s here to stay…
What camera do you use?
Since February 2018 I use a Fujifilm X-T2 with 35mm 1.4 lens and 18-55mm lens.
