Welcome to my blog bringing you various ramblings from my photographic experiences, the places it takes me, the events I cover and the people I get to meet.
Visit any country in the Baltics and you won’t have to look far to have a good weekend, throw in an International Futsal tournament and two history making England performances and you have a weekend that will live long in the memory.
As it was the three lions roared and the one goal winning margin doesn’t do justice to how well they played. They also did it tough, very tough, England, 4-3 up with just over three minutes left on the clock were reduced to 4 men as Sam Murphy was sent off for a 2nd bookable offense. Lithuania piled on the pressure, the fly keeper was deployed, they retained possession well and made England work hard to keep them at bay. Every time they lost the ball they were organised enough to prevent England counter attacking and the noise of the fans was immense, whistles jeering, screams and more until England lost the ball the noise turned back to roars of encouragement.
Its clearly reached that time in the Christmas break were I have to much time on my hands! Anyhow I saw someone else having a look at there Twitter stats and couldn't help but have a look a my own.
I know your dying to know, but thanks to TweetStats.com I know now I tweet on average 3.5 time a day and have never tweeted between 3am and 5am, which I'm sure is a welcome relief to my followers given I talk little enough sense, sober and during daylight hours!
Anyhow from there it threw out a word cloud of the most popular words I use and here they are;
Hopefully there'll be a match on tomorrow and I can get back to taking pics.....................!!!
A quick reminder that the deadline for ordering physical products is midnight tonight (Sunday 16th December). Anything ordered from tomorrow (Monday 17th December) onwards will then most likely be delivered after Christmas.
Sorry, as much as I'd love to be able to guarantee delivery right up until the last minute to accommodate people like myself who like to leave the Christmas shopping as late as physically possible, that's just not possible when factoring printing and postage times.
Obviously should you be really short and need an urgent presents digital downloads are always an option! No need to gift wrap and you can deliver them to a loved one even as the turkey is being carved!
I'm sure when setting out on the path of working for yourself we all think (perhaps naively!) we'll be in control of our own destiny, we'll start when we want, we'll finish when we want, we'll never miss an opportunity to photograph what we want when we want and so on and so on..............
Never works out that way, not for me anyway (and I can't complain!), how many freelancers turn down jobs to go and so some recreational shooting? Can't be many! When your not shooting your editing, when your not editing your invoicing, then there's the admin, then the phone rings or the e-mail dings and its off to another job and the cycle starts over.
Well today was one of those great days when I kicked back, packed the bag, grabbed a coffee, tripod and the dog and headed up to Rivington to catch a sunrise on a beautiful cold, crisp morning, well ok, I tell a lie, I got up an hour earlier than normal to get the admin done for the day, got there later than planned and grabbed the back end of a sunrise, before dashing off to another job!
Anyway, here's a few shots from Rivington this morning;
So as we rapidly approach the end of the year, this neglected corner of my website once again is in my sights!
The "monthly pics" died a death, mainly because 2012 has been a busy busy year, and partly because my good lady wife told me, she "got it" and saw what I was trying to do but it was quite possibly the naffest name she could possibly imagine - so I drew a line under it after March and never got around to replacing it or deleting it - my bad on the house keeping front!
So my end of year resolution is to blog more and who knows one day I may say something of interest!
