Daily Photo #252



I'm at a loss to words today so I'm just going to copy this from my other online journal/blog thing.

Very very very hungover. To the point where I think I am still drunk after stumbling home at 3am with Linda and Joel.

I think we remembered Annie Green yesterday. Many words and memories were shared along with tender moments. Phil and Steve said some very resonant words at the humanist ceremony that took place yesterday.

It was a spiritually cleansing day and I feel a lot more whole today (except for the shakes, the shivers and the loss of focus in my eye sight. How I made it home in one piece I do not know).

Anway, enough of this. I am shivering in my bath robe after a long shower so it's time to get up (3.40 pm), eat something and function like a human being who doesn't look like an extra in "Hobo: The Movie".

Gotta go collect Linda's car from Steve's and drop him in a copy of a DVD that he requested :)

Gotta go eat and try and start functioning like a human being now. Oh yeah, Linda got a new catsuit and we so have to do some photos, it would be criminal not to!

We're off to a funeral service in a couple of hours. I spent a while looking through my stream for something that would capture my mood but would also not be too damn depressing.


I think this one captures it. The statue against the blue sky is a harsh contrast. Something of the past against something that is timeless and infinite. We're all dashing through life but in the grand scheme of things, our lives are over in the blink of an eye. I'm trying to live mine better. I succeed sometimes and fail on occasion but it's taught me not to take things for granted and I endeavour to find something positive and fantastic in each day.

This afternoon I'll be one of many to say goodbye to Ann. We're there to remember how she enriched people's lives and how she committed her life to nursing alongside being a loving wife to Steve. There will be memories, laughter and tears today.

After glancing through my Flickr stats, this one has gathered a lot of attention.


Can't work out why?? ;)

I like this one because it scares the bejesus out of me.

spooky ass doll

Has a real J-Horror feel to it.

Feeling a bit better than yesterday. I guess spooky Japanese dolls cheer me up.

They seek him here, they seek him there

So, in a (rare) non photo related post. We've booked a holiday in Manhattan for next May.

Let's hope the £ stays strong ;) Fingers crossed folks!

I've had better days.


But I've also had worse ones.

Daily Photo #247

I wanted to capture a mood more than an image.


This reminded me of those childhood days of looking into the sky on a lazy afternoon and how it felt back then. Days long gone but good ones. It was a nice afternoon in between rain showers but the sun bought back thoughts of nostalgia.

Daily Photo #246

We braved the great outdoors and I shot a few portraits of Linda.


The light was great and we managed to dodge the rain and get fresh air. Hoorah! Now for some cucumber sandwiches and lashings of ginger beer.


How British are we, eh?
