Last week the idea of in future posting selections of snaps with hardly any theme appealed to me but after working on this update I’m not so sure. This lot were shot under widely differing lighting conditions and post-processing them was a right pain in the arse. From now on I’m going to be even more picky with the shots I choose to post.
I spend a lot of time on YouTube, probably more time than I spend watching telly, but what really gets on my tits is their recommended channels. I’ve received 100’s of these so called recommendations and not one of them has been in my sphere of interests. They claim to fine tune the suggested channels on my rejection but all I can say is their algorithms must be shite because the the next set of recommendations are just as bad. Surely the channels I’m already subscribed to are a clue to what I like or is that too obvious.
Winter is over. I have no meteorological evidence of this it’s just that I’m fed up of freezing my nuts off and have issued a dictum to that affect. Okay we can all now start to think of going outside and actually enjoying ourselves but no mention of fucking gardening please.
Surprisingly I’ve decided to be a bit more proactive and check out the available talent earlier this year. Not much seems to have changed from recent times though. Suitable fresh faces are thin on the ground and are either too far away or too expensive. Having an extensive if one dimensional back catalogue of snaps to post means I could go a few years without arranging a new shoot and that looks likely unless there is a dramatic improvement in the situation.
