Happy 5th Blogoversary

I’ve been running this blog for five years.

The anniversary was on 2nd September and, as usual, I forgot. But because it’s five years (half a decade!), I still wanted to acknowledge it.

Here’s a picture of sunrise:

That’s a roof window, tilted horizontally.

I went from using a Fujifilm compact to Canon DSLR, to only smartphone pics. One day, I shall pick up my camera again, only I don’t know when. I’m, sort of, not in charge of the timeline here.

We Still Have Rainbows

I’ve not seen one of these for a while; it’s been either sunny without rain or raining without sun. Finally the conditions were perfect for a rainbow to make an appearance.

I’ve been feeling autumn in the air for the last few days. Summer is ending. Though what difference that makes in these times, I don’t know. Only that days are getting shorter and time for my daily walk is moving to earlier in the day. Which makes me wonder about what this new way of life is going to be like in winter, if the virus is still a threat. I think we can expect it will be.

Probably every one of you reading this has at some point uttered the phrase: this year sucks. I have too. But no piece of news was as devastating as the death of the actor Chadwick Boseman. Devastating doesn’t describe it. There is no word that can describe it. It sucks, what can I say. Everything sucks.

Rest in power, Chadwick.

Summer in the Time of COVID-19

Hello hi, it’s been a while. What can you photography-blog about these days?

It’s still got to be pictures from my local park, as that the only place I go to. That and Tesco supermarket.

Okay, the last one isn’t from the park but who cares.

I’ve not been outside my area for over 3 months. I don’t think I’ve ever gone this long without using public transport in my life. I kinda like setting this record for myself. I will continue working from home for now so it’ll only be getting longer. I’m used to this new order, I don’t miss the old life much. The only thing is, my photography suffers. I don’t remember when I last took up my camera.

This blog might just turn into a rambling blog. Which, as I said to someone on Twitter recently, is really the best kind. *shrug
