For the moment I have a huge bandage on my leg, I suspect as more of a "reminder" than anything else, it wouldn't do to go knocking the wounds, tiny though they are.
What fascinating technology - I have had a camera poking around inside my knee - shame I couldn't ask for a couple of stills they would have made a great alternate photo for
the day…….. I'll have to make do with one of the bandage for now.

As I never go out without makeup and perfume it's going to be an uncomfortable day. Trivial you may say but the habits of a lifetime
are hard to overcome. Dark glasses and a large brimmed hat have been suggested and it may come to

Anyway it's an unnerving feeling and at times upsetting. So as usual I'll keep quiet and let it pass, the only one being in any way disturbed will be me. I ought to investigate the experience, put it to good use with the right training……the only question being what would be considered "good use" ? Hmmmmmm there's a thought……

Well it's gone… the weekend that is. There must be some law of Physics which states that time speeds up on Saturday and Sunday.

I'm using a new Black an White processing system, it has such versatility and the results are very pleasing.

Last weekend was spent in London, meeting up with fellow photographers from PBase. I was apprehensive about the walking involved in these events and had planned to maybe meet them for lunch and dinner and spend the rest of the time taking things easy around the hotel and Hyde Park. As things worked out we spent time in cafés and on buses, then a restaurant…… and so on. Walking was fine, slow and casual, though the market in Portobello Road was so crowded that anything else would have been impossible. So I didn't miss out on their company nor the sights of the city and it's many photo ops. It was great to make new friends as there were several people attending who I hadn't met before except through their photography. What a wonderful bunch they are - each and every one of them!
I'm home now and recovered. Photos are sorted, processed and posted and remain as a lovely reminder of the weekend. Right, what's next - Ah yes, a Judging Seminar - I am going to learn how judges go about their very difficult job of sorting through the selections of images put before them by photography clubs. How on earth do they sort the wheat from the chaff……..hopefully all will be revealed on Sunday.

The trip to France is but a distant memory now - how quickly the days go by, it's March already! As my photographs in the last post show Rennes is a wonderful city. I was totally enthralled by the architecture and I'm sure I'll be back there quite soon. It is strange how the trips over the channel have grown on me, I no longer get the "I want to be at home" feeling after a few days. A sure sign that I now regard that little bit of Brittany as home. Apart from the trips to Saint-Aignan and Rennes, laying floor covering in the bathroom was about the only other "event" One perhaps I'll skim over - enough to say that it proved to be more difficult than expected thanks to liberal applications of spray-on glue used on the old linoleum. The new floor covering looks good so the struggle wasn't in vain.
So now it's full steam ahead for the Pbase meeting in London. Everything is booked and paid for and logged and printed…….probably. The ever present problem of packing is still to be resolved, not so much of what to take as what to take it in. Trial and error today should sort that one though and I intend to be ruthless in cutting down on clothes I take…….hmmmmm
