Snapshots: Hexham in the Autumn

This is my favourite season and not because it also happens to include my birthday. The colours, freshness and frankly beautiful sunrises as I drive to university make me want to whip out my camera along the dual-carriageway.

I’ve not managed to get out an about as much as I’d like but here a couple of my favourite photos from the last month or so.

Endurance: Weekly Photo Challenge

Weekly Photo Challenge. Endurance: Resilience, Strength, Stamina, Determination, Hardiness.

I like this photo which was taken on a recent holiday. It’s of my dad and brother sailing. They sailed together for years until my brother grew up and wanted faster boats which my dad had no real interest in. This was the first time they had been out together in a few years and they spent ages on this old RS 2000 messing around and enjoying in the wind. The boat was an old one and at  certain speed it whistled along the water, the rudder unclipped and the cleats didn’t work. But it didn’t break and both boys and boat enjoyed fun.

I guess what I’m trying to say is the boat endured the pressure of being pushed to its limits. This photo is also taken about a second before a capsize so you can see my brothers arms flailing as he tries to rescue it. He actually managed to save the boat going over, so I like to think these photo’s how a dual aspect of endurance, both man and boat !

Life Update

Hello again fellow internet people,

I started this blog I suppose as a kind of online diary as well as somewhere to share and record my favourite photographs. I’ve had a week away in Kos, Greece (pictures soon to follow!) with no wifi but I’m now back and connected again!

Update on the job front – Still nothing. My telephone interview was successful however they appeared not to be as impressed in person ! Onwards and upwards!

I am now thinking about purchasing a new camera. Partly to keep me occupied in this hopefully brief unemployment interim but also because I feel its time for an upgrade. My current camera is slightly battered from all it’s years of use and miss-use. It’s hard to narrow down exactly what i want! Right now i’m thinking some kind of Bridge camera. I want the quality but not the bulk. It all very techy…..we’ll see what I end up with!

Any suggestions on camera’s much appreciated !
