This is, believe it or not, almost winter in Cornwall, a place which seems to have a climate of its own. Well, not quite true, it was as grey as any other part of the UK upon our arrival, but for the past few days has been lovely. Sadly we leave tomorrow, but not without a lot of nice memories and photos.
This photo was taken in a place where I guess a million pictures have been taken. Sometimes I wonder if I should add to the mass of similar images. It’s times like that when I remember who I’m taking these photos for and just do it.
Returned after 107 hours door to door (yes, I timed it with the stop watch on my phone!). Lots of meetings (this pick was taken from a taxi after having met with FS in Harcourt Rd), sitting in workshops, dinners with BS (and one surprise one with ND), and a day of the worst jet lag I have had in years. Back now at home sitting in our lounge with Z beside me, and S on my lap. Bliss.
Even on exceedingly long work days there are moments of real beauty. This was taken as we were speeding back to the airport. One of those days. Up in time for a 7.15am flight and back in London around 8.15pm and home by fish. Exhausting but great store visits, and looking at some excellent work by our Austrian colleagues. Nice day.
This is totally for my own interest, but I do kind of like pictures I see of what’s in people’s bags. So here’s what’s in my nice Jack Spade bag which I carry with me everywhere. The only thing you can’t see is my phone, which I’m using to, er, I’m sure you’ll work it out!
I joined Flickr back in May 2005. I think it was just before Yahoo! bought them, or thereabouts, and I was uploading images using an old Nokia phone (N73 or earlier). For a long time it was my favourite web site, then other things came along and it got neglected for a long time. About a year ago I started to get more into it as a way of passing the time on the endless work trips I was doing. Doing so reignited my love for photography and just snapping stuff.
While this picture isn’t the best, I think it’s okay for my 1,000 pic on Flickr. I like this part of Regent’s Park and the endless line of Herrons that stand statue like for a few hundred meters.
You can see them at least two others in the picture. Still. Staring. Watiing.
