Yesterday…I felt miserable and down….

Yesterday I was in an upbeat moment….I’d just remembered a couple songs I’d heard in a bar in Vancouver here….songs that took me way back to when I lived in England as a student.

I was in a euphoric mood….you know the feeling…everything’s looking up, nothing can get you down sort of feeling. And then, out of the blue, as I’d been listening to some old Motown favourites on Youtube, I made the fatal mistake of asking my son….if he’d heard of The Temptations…or Diana Ross…..or (and this was as low as you could get) even Tom Jones.

And you know what he said? I’ll tell you what he said. He said “No, never heard of any of them”, and walked away. Granted he’s 20 years old, but what the heck, man…..don’t kids these days know anything? I just shudder to think what he’d say if I’d asked him who Jim Reeves or Gene Pitney were!

Hearing his answer, I just looked at him, or where he’d stood a few seconds ago (like kids these days, they never hang around for long when you talk to them…usually a single syllable answer and off they go…), shook my head, and sloped off in my lounge-lizard slippers, to my study, to mope the day away.

Someone, somewhere, please tell me I’m not that old…..

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!
