Haven’t been taking many photo’s of late, have been thwarted by the flu, the weather, life in general. I did manage to sit and have lunch by the sea one afternoon, and took a series of people walking past the gap in the dunes, which amused me as I was sitting in the car at the time, had a Warhol moment 🙂
On one of my client visits I went by Ludworth Tower, I have shot this before but had another go as it may just fall down one day though it was built in 1422, so nearly 600 years this wall has been standing. Also I liked the crow sitting on it 🙂 I do like crows.
I joined a colour wheel project over on Ipernity and the first colour we had to do was Pink, so I dragged Phil out one evening and we went up to St.Mary’s Lighthouse as I knew it was being lit up pink every night in October for breast cancer awareness. As it happened the sky was doing it’s own pink thing too, but we were bliddy cold with the wind coming off the sea.
Last weekend we had Phils son and his family over and I got a couple of roids of his kids.
Last night Phil and I went out on a date, dinner and the cinema, dinner at MacDonalds lol, it filled a hole, as Phil says, and we were pushed for time so cheap and cheerful.
then onto Cineworld where we watched Fury, a war movie starring Brad Pitt in a tank.
The movie was 2 hrs 15mins and it was OK, not a patch on Saving Private Ryan, which is still our benchmark war movie, but it was fun, and I don’t mind looking at old Brad for a couple of hours. However the seats in our cinema leave a lot to be desired, I was SO uncomfortable, my bum hurt and I couldn’t wait to get out.
Also yesterday I had to make a ‘spooky’ photo for the Sunday challenge group, and so faffed on in photoshop with a picture I took in May back in the States, at Rochester cemetary,
this is the original
and this is what I did with it
Steep learning curve to turn day into night! 🙂
Today have been back to work, the weather is meh, and the A1 Western bypass is just godawful with roadworks, as they’ve decided to widen it which is going to take forever. I had to go both up and down it today, and each journey of 6 miles took an hour!!! Fedupski me or what. I heard on the local radio that the whole North East is full of bliddy roadworks all over, and I can attest to that, it’s making my work life even more grim than it is normally 😦
Well more of that to come for a while so I’ll just have to suck it up and leave earlier when going Northwest.
Books I’m reading..still going with the Jack Reacher series, really enjoying these books by Lee Child, on number 15 now, think there is 4 more to go.
TV..started watching The Knick, really good as its about surgery -“A look at the professional and personal lives of the staff at New York’s Knickerbocker Hospital during the early part of the twentieth century”. And Clive Owen stars, someone else I can happily look at for a couple of hours 🙂 The surgery bits were really well done, as an ex – operating theatre sister I was very impressed with the realism.
Am supposed to be going down south again next weekend to see Helen then on to see Ben & Lewis, but I have a huge tax bill to pay which is going to wipe me out, so not sure yet if I’ll make it 😦 life huh, does have it’s challenges now and then. Well quite often really. So fingers xt for a good sales week this week, and a lottery win would be good too.
