...the jostling, the pitter patter of feet, not knowing who you are standing next to, not knowing what lies in store...trying not to notice that yours isn't as big as the persons standing next you...all the fun and games at the start of another day of Worldwide Photowalking ..... now sadly I wont be leading one this year as I'm still having counselling after last years Victoria Baths shootathon. Now all of you out there in Photographyland who are going on one of the afore mentioned jaunts, well, I hope you get lots out of it. you watch how other people do their stuff, socialise and above all have a good or even great day and please don't forget to thank the organiser...
Now as I'm not involved in this Worldwide snappery I have it in mind to have an unofficial walk, by myself and possibly with the current Mrs Max tagging along and maybe post on here what I can get up to and see with a bit of a wander around this part of France I now luckily live in. That's the plan for today...looks like a good start...bit of mist/fog nestling hither and thither, the prospect of broken sunshine and more importantly a lack of tourists and their arm stretching ipad/kindle based snappery clogging up the photogenic bits.
On other news I have performed a 'Deep Clean' of my camera sensor and also cleaned out the throat of fluff , dust and gunk using a titchy piece of double sided tape wrapped around a q-tip...eeeeuuuuwwww...dirty boy lots of 'stuff' in there and probably one of the reasons I spend the greatest part of my image processing time wafting away the chunks on my files.... we shall see later on today.
So , fellow lensmiths, today is a day to not only snap but socialise, to do that very scary thing and meet new people and above all have a good time doing it..may your sensors be clean, your images sharp and your day enriched by some social interaction...
What's all this then????
An unyeilding torrent of Photo babbel full of unconfirmed facts and manufactured photo drivel.. take from it what you like, it won't change the world but may leave you feeling nauseous...
