More snow today.
Clearly the weather gods think I don’t have anywhere near enough snow pics so they’re giving me the opportunity to remedy the failing.
Well gee, thanks guys. I’m really touched.
“In the head”, some may say.
Not wishing to sound ungrateful but I’d far rather they visited their kindness on someone else though. Preferably someone else many miles from me. Like in some distant foreign land for example. They’re welcome to it. (All heart, that’s me!)
Snag with this divine gift was… I was in the wrong place!
Cos I know I’ve absolutely loads of snow pics from my little village. Obviously I really needed to be elsewhere.
Head into town as a starting point then. But by the time I arrived there the falling snow had turned into some sort of sleety, rainy, rubbishy type stuff and quite frankly I really didn’t feel in the mood to be wandering around taking shots of the same old scenes. The snow turning to slush simply wasn’t doing it for me. Not today anyway.
Hence end up in The Bear (what a surprise!) and see if I can annoy mate. Just to keep myself amused you understand.
Problem with that is, the toerag ignores me. Either that or he doesn’t take me seriously enough. And everyone knows I’m an amazingly serious person. Ahem.
But I wasn’t totally out of luck. I was feeling a bit down… and curiously so was he. Good!
Dunno why. The music didn’t help either. Mournful dirges most of it… or so it seemed to me.
Thoroughly cheesed off we were. Sitting there and sighing at one another, getting more depressed by the minute.
But then, later in the afternoon, we started messing with some pics of the pool room there. Quite involved we became in fact.
And the mood gradually lifted. Well, bugger me!
Its a curious phenomenon I’ve noticed before as it happens.
No matter what mood I’m in, soon as I start up with the old camera its not too long before I’m feeling ok again.
Seems mate’s affected in the same way too. How odd!
So we’ve come to the conclusion that we’re sort of addicted to this photography lark and need our regular “fix”.
Photo junkies, that’s us!
And ok, so I have a bit of a fixation on chairs and stools and stuff. Is there a problem with that? At least its better than having a fixation on… um… well, anything else I could have a fixation on. Like trees. Or fences. Or clouds or something.
