Outdoors, Weekly Photo Challenge

Corner

I’m back with a Weekly Photo Challenge post. Here are my two contributing images:

The first one looks like the kind of place where they warn you not to hang around after dark. The second one looks like the kind of place where they tell you you’ll end up if you hang around the kind of places on the first picture, with dodgy people. But no, it’s not a prison, it’s the wall of an industrial estate, not far from where I live.

Random and Weird Phone Shots

Random and Weird Phone Shots – Best Friends

This picture is cheesy as hell, but the only reason I took it like this is because I hate having my picture taken, I never have my picture taken–as a matter of fact and I run and hide if I see a camera lens approaching me–and the only part of myself I am willing to photograph are my hands. Hence this.

The kid whose hand is touching mine here (mine is the one with the khaki sleeve) is a boy who is very special to me. I first saw him a day after he was born; he’s nine now and has always been a part of my life and I have always been a part of his. Sadly, he lives in London with his mother, so I only get to meet him when he comes to visit his dad in Manchester. I will continue to refer to him as “nephew” even though that may not be the case in the future. (But that’s a different topic.)

I’ve been deliberating whether to post this picture. Posting would mean I would have to get a but personal and, like I said, it looks cheesy. But then I thought, what the hell, so I posted.

Too much shit is going down in the world today, so remember to spread the love.

What’s Up? Sky’s Up.

I have not posted for a while. I haven’t been using my camera much lately either. I have not taken a single photo with my camera in June and only a couple in July (and that was because I made myself do two pics from my window). I don’t want to get into the reasons why here, what I want to say is that it’s August now and I do have an August photo. As it happens, also taken from my window.

I was treated to this view while watching the Athletics in London. I remember it was just minutes before Usain Bolt’s last individual race. 100m is just so thrilling–only ten seconds and you have a winner. But I digress.

I’m never quite satisfied with any of my sky pictures. Looks like I still have a lot to improve.

This is one of the July ones:

Half-white and half-grey sums up the crazy weather we’ve been having this summer. Showers followed by sunshine followed by more rain.
