On golden pond

Have been so busy, no time to ‘stop and stare’, but just a little time out today unexpectedly, in fact a chilled weekend and start to the week, a rarity to savour.

Quality not quantity

I started my ‘picture a day for 365 days’ 114 days ago, not realising at the time how my working life would change so drastically. I’m working 6 days a week now, and a fair amount of home time is taken up with processing the work, or doing related study etc etc.  Bit by bit my 365 has degenerated into bulk uploads and camera phone shots late at night in desperation to keep it going,  but that’s not the way I wanted to do the 365 and I’m not enjoying it, so have decided to call a halt. Of course I’ll still take pictures when opportunity arises, but quality, not quantity feels more important and relevant right now.

Some from last week.

Darlington Model CLub held their annual show at the college yesterday, and I went along with Phil who had 2 of his tanks entered into the competition. He won 2 golds for them so had a really good day. For me it’s a photo opportunity and a bit of a laugh as the chaps who also go from Phil’s model clubs are funny. Some really good work so I’m posting a few up.
