So, what’s being going on in my life you ask? A little bit of this, a little bit of that. Not too much that some people would consider interesting.
Shoot wise, things have been pretty slow. My camera hasn’t been used as much as I would like it to be. My fault, all the way. Instead of making excuses I should just be walking around with the camera duct taped to my hand. Spare memory cards in my pocket and just shoot anything, everything or anyone (I feel is pertinent at this point to state, by shooting, I mean taking a photograph. By anyone, I mean anyone who gives me permission to do so. *don’t wanna get sued and all that*)
My wife and I had a week off from work this past week. We drove up North to visit some friends and tried a day trip here and there, but if you live in the UK, you know, we are having the shittest summer ever. I have only been here 5.5 years and believe me when I say it’s not been great at all. As a matter of fact, when I look out my window now, “Oh Look. It’s raining. Still!”
This has made trying to arrange outdoor photo shoots almost impossible. no. it has made it impossible. As in I haven’t arranged ONE.
Other than that, work has been busy, too busy at times. I am on call this coming weekend *oh joy* I hate it. I hate it. I hate it. But have to think of the money and it’s only for a weekend.
I think, as I sit here babbling, I might start taking my camera with to work and just take a walk around DURING MY LUNCH TIME (if work is reading this) snapping up some urban pics and what not.
I have also been in two minds as to whether I should commit to a new camera. Let me be more specific, a Nikon D800 with extended battery grip and extra battery. *Schwing* It’s not quiet a D4, but then again, I don’t have £5grand+ just lying around. What am I saying? I don’t even have the dosh for the D800 but I was contemplating on robbing a bank or something (No. No I wasn’t. Just a joooke) But I have left that decision in the hands of my FaceBook page. If I can double my likes in 3 months, then I will get it. If not. Then I will stick to my current set-up for the remainder of the year, at least.
I need to get my rear in gear and start on some editing. Just been busy back in up photos and what what to an external Terabyte drive. As soon as that is done, I will crack on with some work.
Above are some random images to entertain you all. Some taken with my Blackberry, others just some randomness.
Hope you all have a great weekend and keep snapping them pics.
