I like to take photos of things. Mostly peoples. Mostly pretty peoples, if I'm honest. But sometimes toys, or dogs, or maybe a tree. Y'know, interesting stuff.
I shoot a few burlesque shows, but that's just to kill time between photoshoots with models, where I can control the light and the pose and the magic.
My photos will have the tag "my photo". Otherwise, it's stolen from the vast wilderness that is the internet. I usually source pics from Model Mayhem, Flickr or We <3 it.
You wanna look me up elsewhere?
So, the problem is, I don’t have the time to sift through Tumblr, because I follow too many people.
BUT! I don’t want to unfollow folk, because I like all you guys! But some of you I have a personal connection with, rather than just “i like you because you post pretty pictures”.
I’m punting all the people who I like as people, rather than as a blog, and plop them into a Feedly* folder! Then, I don’t need to wade, I can just see at a glance!
YAY for shifting my problems from one network to another, so that in a year, I follow too many people on Feedly and have to whittle them down again somehow!
*Feedly, for those not antiquated with it, is a news/RSS reader, like GoogleReader used to do. But this one looks nice. Plus, since it has a nice Android app, I can read it on my phone.
Me, firebreathing like a champ.
I reek of fuel, thou. lol
This was a video from the end of a firebreathing class back in 2010!
A) It looked better in real life and b) I can do better than that.
I’ve always been a bit bummed out that I never got any really good photos of me fire-breathing, and now that I have “special dental requirements” I’m not sure if I can do any fire tricks again.
Or at least, I’d want to take my plate out for it, but then, with the plate out, I would tend to shy away from having my photo taken.
For Katie’s birthday this year, we went on a wee jaunt to Edinburgh, which is a city she loves ( and has family there ) but we haven’t been to in about 7 years!
So, we went and stayed at her Uncle Mike’s place. If any of you say that Moray Place documentary, Katie’s Uncle Mike owns at least 3 properties there, so we stayed in a vacant one, which has the most amazing roof terrace garden. Swish doesn’t even begin to cover it!
On the Saturday, we went into the city centre for a mooch about and we bumped into Peppa Pig. Soph was enraptured.
On Sunday, we went to the Botanic Gardens. I might do a separate post for that, but it’s mostly just pics of plants and flowers and I’m sure no one is all that interested. I’ll post them on Facebook, regardless.
Got everything packed; music, portable dvd player for Soph, Hello Kitty headphones, books, Kindle, clothes for ALL weathers ( since the news says “chance of storm!” ) analog camera, chargers and plugs and everything.
But the question is, what lens should I take for my camera?
The 35mm is a good all-rounder, but Edinburgh is quite a far-away city. So, take the 50mm too, y’say? But should I take the big ol zoom, the 70-300mm? It’s not a great lens, it is cheapo junk and it’s huge!
But will I kick myself for not having such a long range covered?
Sophie’s first ever pair of headphones, Hello Kitty ones, bought in preparation for a road trip to Edinburgh this weekend.
Means we don’t all have to listen to Dora the Explorer! Yay!
In 2013, I read 9 books, according to my Goodreads.
This year, 7 months in, I haven’t read a single one. My Kindle hasn’t been switched on in months.
This makes me a little sad.
( Unless you count the books I read to Soph for her bestime, then I’m in the squillions, but I don’t think books with less than 100 words should count. )
Cheers! I was thinking of including a photo or a postcard, mainly because these were the only flat things I could think of. haha.
Which has taken so much longer than I expected. It’s not that I don’t know what to write…I typed everything out so I didn’t get lost and ramble, as I’m wont to do.
But I can only write in short bursts, because if my hand gets tired, my handwriting goes to super-shit. Like, I’m really putting my all into making it legible, because for the most part, it’s not.
Which means, I can’t do it after work most nights, because I’m tired, and then my writing goes to shit.
I can’t just squeeze a wee ten minutes in at lunch, because I’d end up rushing it to get done in the short time I get for lunch, and my writing would go to shit.
I’m on the second last section.
Now I just need to think about what goodies to pop in the envelope.
Anyone have any experience with penpals? What was the best thing your penpal ever sent you?
Wait, I don’t mean inherited.
My mum isn’t dead.
I got an S3 just as the S4 came out. I know people using S2s that still work great, it’s a fab phone and the front mounted camera really isn’t bad at all! You have also reminded me I haven’t posted my face in a while. YAY FACE!
YAY FACE! The best character from the A-Team.
But that’s only because, when I was a kid, I was a HUGE Quantum Leap fan and was convinced that Face = Sam Becket.
It was only when Enterprise came out, the conversation of Scott Bakula came up and I made a total fool of myself.
