My Former Me

I got an urge to do something this evening. I started messing with my camera...then I kept going.

This is the result:

Photos, many, many photos

I've been really busy with the project I'm working on at the moment. I think I throw myself into things a little too completely sometimes, I can entirely lose any other aspects of myself. This weekend I've purposefully taken two whole days off - the first time I've done that since I started this thing I think. It's actually allowed me to regain a big chunk of myself - I read the paper, wrote a little, sorted my photos, played with my camera...all of those things I had completely failed to even think about for far too long.

I'll still be busy here for a little while. But these couple of days have reminded me that I have so much else I'm interested in, and I need to make time for all of that soon.

Here are a few photos from today's Great Camera Clean Up (the bulk of my entire last year's photos were on it - 2500+):


This is actually taken today. I've been playing with camera settings, and as always I love the light blur.


This is trees taken through the grass. I tried this a few times, it's a nice effect, but I want to see what else can be done with it.


Best pig ever.


I was trapped by these cows - the whole herd charged across the field to where I was walking, and the cows were fighting over the gigantic bull. I took lots of photos but discovered that cows are not very photogenic. They pulled a lot of faintly unhappy faces.


This was the blossom outside of the tree-house compost loo. How I miss that place!!
