Boa Vista…

Ok, I have a confession to make…. I awoke this morning to the best sunrise of the holiday…

And then the beach, bar and sun kind of distracted me so I didn’t manage to get to Rabil but hey, as they say in these parts…

Home tomorrow… I’m going to miss this place….

Thanks Fatima, for the bracelet, it’s going to be my motto for 2018!

The Wells Of Silence

dsc_7982-pano-edit“Hello darkness, my old friend,
I’ve come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence…”

Guess who’s been Rock Banding! ;o)  And going through some more of the shots from Osmington Mills, this one was looking over towards Portland, the land mass on the left.

Be Like Liquid

Strange times… I’m enjoying the fact that I’m not having to chase a shot for the day and actually enjoying seeing more and not constantly thinking I must get my camera. I know that means there’s going to be times when I miss a shot but sometimes you need to see things rather than look at things through the viewfinder.

I also have the chance to meander back through the 50,000 or so shots I got last year and maybe tweak one or two, strange though, that many shots and I can remember every single day, where it was and how I was feeling, for someone who had a job to remember last week that’s quite a mind funk!

Where Nant Howni Meets The Seadsc_6426Just a simple picture but a complex switch, like old music, or a long forgotten smell that clicks in an instant.

They promise -6 tonight and there’s a great spot on my way in to work in the morning, best leave early then! ;o)

Manual 365/366 Well, Here We Are!

My last post on my Manual challenge… I could go on about how, through the help of others, I have begun to master the art of photography, to place my own stamp on my work and to think that little bit differently, to see that bit more. I could say how my confidence in myself has grown and how I am better able to accept constructive critique, enable the ignorant and ignore the arrogant.

I could do all of that but actually, I think I’ll end this with the most important thing in my life…dsc_7456-editMy family.

(and my daughters previously unknown ability to shoot water from her fingertips…)

To those who come here often, you know who you are, thank you so so much!

And to All, may I wish you a happy and prosperous 2017!

Here’s to the next 7 billion mile trip around the sun and all the photons to capture that will bring!

Just call me 365 Warrior Peeps! ;o) XXXXX

Manual 365/364 On A Mission…

DSC_7309.JPGThis time of year you need to make sure you’re correctly suited and booted for whatever the world can throw at you… And my advice? Wear Wellies!DSC_7313-Pano.JPGAnd that’s another one ticked off the list for the year, a beautiful lady under a waterfall!

Peace Peeps!

My World…

dsc_7138-pano-editThere are no words I can use to express how proud I am of my family but as I come to the end of this thing I can only say thank you for putting up with The Old Mans obsession and for everything you do and are! Love you guys! XXXDSC_7167.JPGThe camera goes away on the 1st Jan…. Maybe
