Wintertime Blues

It’s miserable outside so time to dig into the filing cabinet and find some photos taken on warmer happier days. Model number one, a cheeky blonde snapped in the back garden. The second set were taken at the bus stop just around the corner from my place. Passing motorists were most appreciative judging by the number of catcalls and car horns we got, or should that be she got. The final set shot in my usual happy hunting ground, the local rec.

Should It Stay Or Should It Go

I’m suffering from a touch of GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome). I’ve had my iMac for over 7 years now and used it almost every day so surely I can’t be seriously chastised for considering an update. In most respects it still works well until that is it comes to processing the image files from the D810 camera where it definitely struggles. Picking my replacement iMac model is easy, if expensive, but then you have to add on the extra costs of making the legacy hardware and software work. Methinks my credit card could be about to take a humongous hit.

Nothing Is Easy

Though time gets you worrying my friend, it’s okay. Just take your life easy and stop all that hurrying, be happy my way.
I wish Jethro, I wish. Things are taking it in turns to piss me off again and I have a habit of turning molehills into mountains. People I know think I’m laid-back but the truth is inside I’m a nervous wreck. Being bone idle doesn’t help. Some of my problems would disappear if I got off my fat arse and did some work. This is where a nagging wife comes in handy with her retirement list of jobs that need completing but alas I have no one to crack the whip.

Under Pressure

Queen, David Bowie. 1982.

We are only a few weeks into the new year and I’m totally stressed out. Paranoia is my middle name with everything pissing me off. No wonder I want to stay in bed all day.
Another set of snaps found during a random dig into my collection. They were shot with a Nikon D200 and 17-55mm f2.8 Nikkor zoom lens, my long time standard set-up. Lighting is the same old boring arrangement I have used for the majority of my indoor shoots. I promise not to be so predictable with the lights for any sessions I manage during 2016. Honest.
