Sunset / cloudscape

Took this image with my point 'n shoot a few minutes ago. It was surprisingly blustery outside, so I was lucky to get such a sharp image. It's another 'moody' shot, plenty of black Yorkshire clouds. Shame there were no 'cracking pylons' (Fellow 'Nelsonians' will get this reference).

May bank holiday

Another bank holiday in the UK again, or it must be the weekend or something? Anyway, this usual hive of activity, one of the plethora of vegetable oil refineries on the banks of the River Hull has shutdown for t'weekend, if the carpark being totally deserted is anything to go by. Or perhaps they've all rushed home to catch the first proper eviction of this years Big Brother (UK) 7?

Moi, hasn't posted for over a week, infact the above image is several weeks old, so it's a deception on my part this post. I haven't 'snapped' a sausage for several days, preoccupied with work, my 'Knobblers' as my friend Vienna calls them (my poor knackered knees). So this weekend I aim to chill, watch the latest Dr Who ep, and try and spend some time with my niece, who I haven't seen for far too long.

At the moment I'm listening to a couple of cds I purchased from one of the Hare Krishna monks who occasionally frequent Hull's town centre. I'm not interested in any form of theistic religion myself, but these guys do a lot of goodwork in some of the more impoverished parts of the planet, always have a smile on their faces as opposed to the local C of E clerics. Also it's nice to be able to mention my own dabblings into atheist philosophies/ religions such as Buddhism, which doesn't seem to phase this particular monk I've chatted with on several occasions.

"The wheels on the bus go round............"

After suffering yet another 'Groundhog' day at work, rather than throwing myself under a bus, I thought I'd post an image of my local bus depot, not far from the 'Jazz Joint'. I miss the blue buses we used to have in Hull, before the rather generic 'StageCoach' colours appeared. That's progress?

The astral tramways of England

Well, I never!!! I haven't posted for a week now. If truth be known I'm a little surprised by the positive responses to my last entry, both on this blog and the FujiFilm uk gallery. How do I better what I've achieved so far?

Me thinks I'm suffering from 'photographers block' mayhap? Perhaps it's time for a short, but natural break to gather my thoughts and come up with another idea for a 'project'?

In the meantime, I'll open another 'tinnie' (purely medicinal, you understand) and allow my conscienciousness to absorb all the 'verses possibilities (Firefly/Serenity reference there).

Ciao, pop pickers, not 'arf.

My Zen Moment

I've been trying to come up with a photo to enter in this months Fuji UK competion. The remit is 'Self Portrait'. I've never taken a self portrait before, let alone something different enough to post in a compo. It's a subject I find really difficult to get my head around on even a basic level.

Anyroad, whilst having a soak this evening I took some headshots in my bathtub and came up with this one after cropping and a little manipulating (well, I didn't want to scare the kids too much).

About me

  • I'm JJ
  • From Hull, Yorkshire, United Kingdom
  • I still haven't got the hang of Thursdays, nevermind life in general. Perhaps I should get out more?
