It has been a while since I posted, and I’m sorry, but things have been busy. I’ve also been doing quite a few videos on YouTube and I will share them with you.
Over the last 18 months, a lot of things have changed for me. You know that as I’ve talked about it a lot here. Photography really took a back seat for a long time, and you know I’m not even sure if it will ever be my main obsession again. Though having said that I do still love doing it and want to continue taking photos. The business aspect of it, I’m not interested in at all.
I guess the big thing now is really about me sorting out where I go and doing what I enjoy and what makes me happy.
This is a term I came up with quite some time again, a couple of years ago I think. I think it describes me perfectly and I’m sure many of you can identify with it as well.
I feel like I’m too old for many things, I will never be an Olympian champion now, not that was ever a possibility, and my child rearing days are long gone. Perhaps in many ways, I’m too old to think I can have a new career. It is what it is.
However, having said that I also know I’m too young to just lie down and get ready for death. I feel like I’m caught midway between two worlds. Sometimes I’m not sure where I belong or what I’m doing.
So I’m going to sort it out and see where I end up.
My grandmother was and mother is an avid gardener. I always thought the gene missed a generation, but if given the right conditions I love it. Those conditions seem right now. The garden has given me a great sense of joy and I love being out in it. Though lately, it has been a bit hot out there, but with summer coming to a close I’m looking forward to autumn in the garden.
I’m still baking all my own bread. It has become a sense of pride for me that we haven’t bought bread for almost a year. That feels great.
With my mum down at Christmas, we have been talking about how I have always enjoyed baking. I thought she did too, but apparently, she did it because she had to, while I loved it. Though she always encouraged me.
This is something new that I am loving. I think part of the reason I haven’t been blogging is because I don’t like typing as much as I prefer just talking.
I was also testing some theories and I think this post will help with that. Something I will go into another time.
Speaking of YouTube videos I have three for you below, from the last three weeks. I hope you will watch them and enjoy them. I know they still aren’t great, but hopefully, over time they will get better.
I’m experimenting with the Fujifilm X-S10 at the moment. A great small camera and perfect for videoing. Though, the last video I did with it the IBIS was turned off somehow, so the next one will hopefully be better.
I used it along the Great Ocean Road and all the photos in this post were taken with it.
I want one I think, but Dave is playing hardball and I don’t think I’m going to be allowed to get one. I will have to keep saving.
I will give a full report on it soon.
I’m going to leave it there for now. Take care everyone.
