So I have invested in some new computer hardware, not a much needed new iMac but a NAS for storing all my digital images. This will replace a rats nest of hard disks of various sizes currently residing under my computer desk. Have you noticed that when you buy a new-fangled gadget you believe will make your life easier it highlights deficiencies in other areas of your system and forces you into further credit card expenditure. Funny that.
Everybody needs good neighbours! What do they think of my salacious pastime? I haven’t a clue, I don’t think many of them even know about it. I keep myself and this web site pretty anonymous and rarely discuss it unless an interested party asks a question about how the operation functions. My photo sessions usually take place during the week when people are at work and I only shoot in the garden when I’m sure no one is around. As for the rec, I keep it subtle. Occasionally visitors to my humble abode have commented on the various lighting arrays scattered throughout the house but I just tell them I take photographs and leave them guessing. Taxi drivers must be curious about the Chateau de Vaughan though. All the fares are attractive young ladies travelling from and to the railway station!
When it comes to attractive female friends I allow myself to be manipulated. She is being economical with the truth, I know she is, but I give in to her pleading demands without a fight even though I’m hopping mad inside. There’s no fool like an old fool.
Music was my first love, and it will be my last. Whatever you think of the song those words have a certain truth to them. The first song I remember hearing was Red Sails In The Sunset, who’s version I known not. The first record I bought was Go Now by The Moody Blues and through my teenage years most of my school homework was done while listening to The Beatles. Then came prog rock, all the usual suspects plus many not so usual. In the 90’s I discovered classical music and I virtually lived at Symphony Hall in Birmingham, Rattle and the CBSO at their finest. Where’s this all leading? Well back to the start because I find myself listening to The Beatles more and more. Funny old world isn’t it.
