Hi Everyone, long time no post!
I have not posted for so long now I expect I will be back to zero followers. Things have been hectic to say the least.
The bad news is that I have literally not had time to pick up a camera for months. So long in fact, that this week when I did venture out with small daughter, I had actually forgotten how to use the thing.
Work has almost taken over life recently. So much going on & so many projects to get involved in, none of which involved time for photography. On a positive note however, I have just (finally) managed to get promoted. Same job, same hassle, but the level increase, makes a huge difference & really makes it all worthwhile.
Photography has taken a back seat to cycling as well. I was running to keep fit but to be honest I just got bored. 10k runs just were zero fun. I did a charity ride in London last year, the 100k Nightride & I got the bug. It was so much fun & I have been going ever since. (Clearly not Forest Gump style) but I have been out & bought a proper road bike & have signed up for many rides this year. Training is key & clearly this also doesn’t give me much time for the photos.
Small daughter was home from Uni this week so we decided to take a trip into Lyme Regis. We had a great day. Took plenty of photos & had a good catch up. Its good to have her home. I do miss her, even though I do see her in London as often as I can.
There was loads going on in Lyme this week, the funniest moment was, having watched the dredging going on in the harbour, we actually witnessed them dumping the contents of the harbour onto the beach!! They really didn’t give people much time to get out of the way, as you can see the buckets & ball just got covered in the harbour mud. They decided this was clearly not a good plan & started dumping elsewhere afterwards.
Anyway, I plan to be back as often as I can & a few pictures from Lyme over the next few days will hopefully get me going again.
I hope to catch up with everyone I have missed over the next few weeks & months.
Take care all. best wishes. John
