Pessimistically optimistic

Pessimistically optimistic // 12 09 14255 // 365

Another week down, another weekend is here. Getting up early tomorrow morning to try to take another part of a series I am working on.
This image is another one in the series, each image links the previous one to the next one.

Washing away the last of summer

Seem to be rocking the square format this week, no idea why as I normally hate square format.

Anyway, this was more trouble than it was worth. It’s rained all day, I was uninspired (feeling a bit under the weather and my knees and hips are starting to hurt *woe* ), then after much trouble-shooting it looks like the transmitter from my wireless flash kit needs a new battery, by this point I had pretty much lost the will to do the shot, so used the extension cable and bedside lamp instead.
Being outside in jim jams in the wet/cold/dark whilst feeling pants is not an experience I would recommend. Next time, an OOF shot of the floor will suffice…

Heading towards a storm

Heading towards a storm

This is near where I “grew up” (if that is what it’s called when you are in your late teens/early twenties?). We moved here just as I was finishing university and I lived here for a good few years before we bought our own place.
I hated it when we first moved there. It was “dark” and “in the middle of nowhere”, but as these things tend to go I ended up loving that house and the land that was around it.
I used to walk to the end of the road, through the wooden gate and across the fields fully stocked up with drink, blanket and book. I would sit under a tree at the top of a hill and read.
Happy memories.
Now there are gates and fences put up all around it and big shaggy Shetland cows graze in there for some of the year.
There were butterflies and bees out in force today, and a rattle snack (probably a cricket but my childhood over-active imagination never wore off).
