Well the rain and hail and wind and sleet and sunshine all hit here this am, a crazy weather day ! Then it rained some more. Come around six pm then the cold set in and it has remained dry since however we have been warned to expect a heavy snow shower from 6 am ! Sleds out then !
Plan to go out tomorrow morning and we will share the one remaining camera, so a bag of lenses and one D40, no definitive plan in mind just be good to get out and take some images hopefully in snow or sunshine no rain ....
I was left all on my own last night as my wife ( Mar of Colmar ) went to babysit for the grandkids, I hardly slept a wink, isn't it amazing how used we become to our partner being there .... Although the bed was bigger it was not comfortable and I woke time and again !
All sorts of talk at work mainly rumour, of possible redundancy, personally I would jump at the chance, it is not really all that often in life we get a chance to follow a dream, for a mere I reckon £25,000 I could give it a real good chance at following my dream and taking images and selling them if after the year it was not viable I would at least be able to say I had tried, there surely can be nothing worse than looking back and saying I wonder what if ..... So if any of you know the lotto guys , whilst the jackpot be grand , I would be happy with the amount mentioned above , it truly would be a life changing amount.
Where would I go to attempt this , why back home to Scotland, we have been down here in England almost twenty years. It has got to the stage where I think we are readu to go home. Ideally I would prefer somewhere in the Argyllshire area closer to the north of that wonderful area .... A wee hovel would do as long as it had two main things a broadband connection and the availability of Sky TV , cannae miss my footy !!!!!
We have sold a few framed images and with a good outlet or outlets then I am sure we could break even at the least and maybe , just maybe make a few pounds too and keep the wolf from the door. Ah well maybe one day !
Stay safe and be warm !!
Till next time
