Look For The...

I make no apologies for that title and no apologies if no one gets it.

A Sunset To Warm The Very Bones

It doesn't matter how much I wish for it to happen, lack of funds mean I won't be seeing this for a while.
*sigh deeply*
*trudge forever onwards*
Everyone needs a pick-me-up.

Flicking Through The Photo Album

There is a lot of talk about the fact no one really prints their photos any more as though it is a dying art and another tradition consigned to the "death by new media" heap.  I'm not sure, I have a box, I have several boxes if truth be told, of old photographs I rarely look through. Spending an evening looking through the photo albums I've accumulated over the past few years is an evening well spent.

A few years ago, when I first caught up with technology and bought a digital camera I actually thought, in a woolly minded daydream, that I could take up photography as a hobby, perhaps even make some sort of artistic venture out of it. I'm not that good unfortunately, so it remains just a passing hobby and source material for my scribblings.

This is going somewhere, I promise, over the next month and a bit I'll post a photo each day.

Today it's a sculpture on the wall of our hotel in Mallorca, I look at holiday photos and instantly feel warm and happy.  Then sad that I'm not there and can't afford a holiday this year! (pout) By the way the "pmr" is my watermark, nothing to do with the hotel! That probably sounds quite conceited, that I'd stick a watermark on but regardless of talent and lack thereof I've seen quite a few stolen images of late and am fed up of giving away things for free.

So...Whatcha Been Up To?

Sons used to watch a tv programme when they were younger where one of the characters would always say "Whatcha doin'?" I needn't have bothered explaining that but I did.
Spring has!  There are changes happening. Some doors are closing, others hopefully opening and others I'm not sure of yet.
Through it all I still scribble away and one day I might get good at it but until then (although I am pleased with the eagle). Examples of (yeah, I can't do dark and brooding clouds, who'da thunk):
