I will start by apologising for my absence.
My internet is pretty much the same as this brush, in fact the brush looks in better condition.
It's actually like the comedian Norman Collier when I was a kid, he used to pretend his mic oph ne wa rok n. I now have tears rolling down my face because I went to check his name before writing it, as you do, it's an age thing I think having to check names, I have to boot up my computer some days just to check my own. Anyway, I ended up watching a video of him on stage from around the seventies, he still makes me laugh.
Right I am fully composed, well nearly at least.
As you may guess I am still having fun with the broadband, or should we say elastic band the amunt that my provider has stretched the truth. I am just waiting for "Boing" sound at the other end of the phone when talking tothem, either that or a jingling coming from my right leg as it has bells on it.
Gill is off to London for a couple of days as of Sunday, I am dropping her off at York train station. She couldn't get a train from Durham early enough to get her into the capital in enough time for her and the daughter in law to be "Lisa" to make it to the theatre for the show which they are going to see. "The Lion King", I have seen it, fantastic, highly recommended although the seating in the theatre is of the old wooden stall variety and after an hour they begin to become rather uncomfortable, alright then, bloomin' agony, was I glad for the interval. Still amazing though and I would go and see it again in a heartbeat.
Where was I, oh yes, Gill is off to London, drop off York. Well you see, it's a very early train, 7am from York so we will have to leave early to ensure they are there in plenty of time, of course it doesn't help that the clocks go forward, back left or right on the Saturday night.
The good news is that once I have dropped them off and seen them safely on the train, me and my cameras which will be in the boot of the car, the cameras will be in the boot, not me you understand, that would be a bit stupid as who would drive the car. Nikons are good, but not that good and I wouldn't want the Bronica to drive, after every turn it would have to stop so it could wind on a frame, totally impractical. I'll drive.
Forgot where I was again, oh yes I will be heading for the coast and taking a leisurely drive up country through all the coastal towns, snapping as we go. Then over the Yorkshire Moors hopefully into the evening and so I can capture stars and finally home. What a treat, I can't wait.
I hope you like this one, it is one from the archives of 2009 and when I was doing my degree.
Any comments as always are welcome.
