A few shots taken just yesterday…..!

I don’t know about you, but I just relish the rainy weather, especially when I’m not working!

Even when it’s pouring down, and if I have time to spare, nothing will stop me from making a boiling hot cup of coffee, grabbing my umbrella, and walking out in the downpour, coffee in one had, umbrella in the other, into my garden, to just stand there watching and listening to the magical sights and sounds of primordial rain.

And sometimes, I even have my camera with me to record some of that magic.

So it was yesterday, when I captured these few shots here….I think they capture that magic quite nicely!

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 years...my 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 back...no 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!

  1. Yes, they do, my friend, they most certainly do! 🙂
    All well?

  2. I love the thick texture of the bottom pic. It’s good seeing you! Hope you’ve been well. x

    • Hi! Thanks for your compliments too!
      Looking at the se pics again, I just realised they could well have been much sharper, had I taken the time to get a tripod out etc..but in pouring rain, and with one hand holding my umbrella up, it was never going to be easy! Yeah, people think I’m crazy, walking around in heavy rain….but I love it! Good to hear from you too…how have you been? Studies complete or still ongoing? x
