Black Country Day disabled parking.

It is Sunday morning and once again I’ll share my thoughts with you. I nearly forgot, which is why I’m late. I missed the Wednesbury Carnival yesterday because I couldn’t find a place to park. There is a play area that they could use for disabled parking but they don’t bother so I went to Darlaston instead. I got some really good pictures on Black Country Day, so that’s all right.

Social media: creating the content

It’s Sunday morning and here in the Black Country, the sky is blue and the sun is shining. As usual on a Sunday I’m considering where I can go to get a little exercise and take some photos. I really want to photograph people but I find it quite difficult to just go up to people and ask if I can take their photo. I suppose I could be sneaky about it and use a long lens! Anyway, I have social media on my mind and I need to create content.

Improve my life #ramble

It is Sunday morning and so once again I share my thoughts with you. What’s on my mind this week? Well, I need a picture for this post to start with! I have been trying to improve my composition. I don’t get it right every time.

Welcome to Wednesbury #ramble

It is Sunday morning and so once again I’ll share my thoughts with you, such as they are. I’m planning another outing to take photos because I think it’ll be a nice day. On Friday the 6th of July, which is just over 2 weeks time, I’m having an evening out at Mecca Bingo in Wednesbury for their Legends of Darts evening. It’s not that often I go out in the evening so that’ll make a nice change. We will welcome to Wednesbury, four champion dart players.

Zeitgeist – the spirit of our time #ramble

I know a few people who have lost loved ones recently and it is a painful experience. How are we supposed to get over such things and stop the pain of loss? I think there is a natural process that helps us heal and we shouldn’t create shrines to the one we lost. We should have the wake and then allow the wound to heal. Don’t keep picking at a wound, it will never heal. Of course, the scars of losing a loved one fade but they never disappear.

Value your eyesight. #ramble

It is Sunday morning and so once again I let you into the labyrinth of neurons and share my thoughts with you. My glasses are still in the opticians and so I am looking at a blurred computer screen and hoping for the best. I still have distance glasses so I’m able to find my way around and drive but not being able to read is really annoying. You really do need to value your eyesight.

How to have great ideas? #ramble

How do you have train your mind to have great ideas? How do you make life interesting? Tony Highfield, our local historian was telling me about all the awards he has won and how he gets involved in the community. He compiles books, researches history and gets involved and he said that is why we are different. We take a risk and risk the ridicule if things go wrong. We don’t sit at home thinking about it and talking about it, we get out there and take a risk. This inspires our thinking and we even take risks in the way that we think. We imagine and then we try to make it happen. There are people who can’t do anything without lots of support and when it all goes wrong they blame someone else. You have to be brave enough to try new ideas but you also have to be brave enough to accept the blame if it all goes wrong.

Exhibiting in the art gallery #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I share with you my innermost thoughts. What’s on my mind this week? Well, art is still on my mind because I took my picture to the art gallery for it to be exhibited next month. You want to see it, don’t you?

Allusions and illusions #ramble #life

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I’ll share my thoughts with you. What’s on my mind this week? Allusions and illusions. Yesterday, it was that royal wedding. That was an illusion of grandeur but there were complex allusions in play too.

Artistic mood #ramble #photography #art

It’s Sunday morning and once again I share my thoughts with you, such as they are. I’m in an artistic mood, this week. I had an interesting week and took photos with the Caravan Gallery who are also taking photos as part of the Sandwell Pride of Place Project. We need to take more pride in our community, so anything I can do to make things better, I will try. I have photography on my mind today because it is the Black Country Horse Drive.

Eclecticism as a philosophy #ramble

It is Sunday morning and so I let you into the labyrinth of neurons that is my mind and share my thoughts with you. It was the local elections this week. Which way did I vote? Well the local UKIP party disintegrated and their members stood for some other obscure party. The Greens didn’t do very well, perhaps because they aren’t all that realistic. Their public image is one of pet-owning vegans wanting to turn us all into animal-loving Greenpeace disciples. So the real race was between the Conservatives and Labour. My philosophy is one of eclecticism

Making the content #ramble

It’s Sunday morning once again and so I’ll let you in on my innermost thoughts. It has been a week of ups and downs, as usual. I photographed a book launch yesterday which was interesting. I bought the book and it was duly signed by the authors and then I put it down while I put my camera away and left it behind. Fortunately, it was in the library, I had put I down with other books and pamphlets and it was still there when I returned two hours later. Anyway, I think making the content of a book and putting it all together takes a lot of skill so that was well done.

Producing content #ramble #socialmedia

It’s Sunday morning and so I will share my thoughts with you once again. Some years ago, I was invited to join a social media group for student journalists. The students were required to join the Facebook group, start a LinkedIn group, set up a LinkedIn professional profile and start a blog. I’m still a member of the Facebook group and LinkedIn group. I tried to advise the students and learnt something from the experience too. Social media is now a huge industry and one that has attracted the attention of lawmakers as it becomes so pervasive and part of our everyday lives. Today, I’m thinking about producing content for social media.

Poetry and problems #ramble

Yes, it’s Sunday morning and so once again I share my thoughts with you. I’ve been doing less writing for my blog this year and even less photography. I have joined a writers’ group and so I’ve been trying to write some poetry. One poem upset a few people on Facebook and I had to delete it.  Some people are way too sensitive to be on social media. Poetry seems to have re-entered my life.

Comics and trolls #ramble

Yes, it’s Sunday morning again and so I will let you into the labyrinth of neurons and share my thoughts with you. What’s on my mind this week? Well, the weather’s better, we might reach a double-digit temperature this afternoon so I think I’ll go out and do a bit of photography. I’ve had comics on my mind this week because we have a Charlie Grigg exhibition on in Wednesbury art gallery.

Share my thoughts? #ramble

It is Sunday morning and so once again I allow you free access to the neural network and share my thoughts with you. What’s on my mind this week? I think my mind is actually scrambled, flitting from one topic to the next. I couldn’t even decide which photo to use in today’s post. This photo is the road that passes the town hall where I’ll be going on Tuesday.

Move on with your life #ramble

It’s Sunday morning once again and so I let you into the neural matrix and share my thoughts with you. What’s on my mind this week? Relationships in a word. I tend to be fairly easy-going and try not to annoy family members, friends or anyone else but sometimes friendships can go wrong. We just have to fix them or move on. Some people carry a grudge and can’t move on. That has been my problem with one friend, who gets people to troll my Facebook page. My patience has run out now, so I just ban them.

The beast from the East is back. #ramble

Some people tell me they would like to write a blog but don’t know what to write about. I don’t know what to write about either this morning, so I looked out of the window at the snow that came down overnight and thought of a title. Yes, the beast from the east is back. I think I’ll be wearing my thermal socks and clearing snow again later.

Poetry, photography and art #ramble #Wednesburyonline

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I’ll share my thoughts with you. I went to the Darlaston Writer’s group yesterday so I have poetry on my mind. I’m not very good at writing it and certainly not any good at reading it out loud but I keep trying. As usual, I also have photography in mind and I promised to take a photo of a section of a Tipton canal that we saw in a very old photograph. I hope I can identify the stretch now.

The many art forms #ramble

It is Sunday morning and so I share my thoughts with you, once again. What’s on my mind this morning? I have been thinking about the many art forms this morning. I saw a nice photo on Instagram that was taken from the window of Walsall Art gallery of the frozen canal. The basin was partly frozen over and the towpath was covered in snow. They have workshops in the gallery ‘creating’ art and now they have finally created a picture that I really like. They probably don’t see it as art and won’t bother having it printed or putting it on display but the fact they put it on Instagram suggests they think people will like it. Shouldn’t that be the test of art? Should it be something the people of Walsall like or should it be something some ‘expert’ in London thinks is ‘amazing’? Here is my snowy picture:

Access to the neural labyrinth #ramble #thoughts

It is Sunday morning and so once again I let you into that neural labyrinth that is my mind and share my thoughts with you. It is –1 Celsius and so you can guess that the weather is on my mind. As usual, on a Sunday, I also have an outing in mind to take some photos. Where can I go this week and will I get out of the car and brave the cold? I do try to take shots from the car if I can! They can be quite interesting shots.

Community and culture #ramble #Wednesbury

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I share my thoughts with you. What’s on my mind this week? Community and culture in the town where I live. I went to a meeting of the friends of the local park. Things didn’t go well last year and so to say I was apprehensive would be an understatement. I really didn’t want to venture out on a cold February evening but I seem to be involved again. I have made appeals for new volunteers using the Facebook pages that I am an admin of.

Creativity and the creative industry #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I’ll share my thoughts with you. What’s on my mind this week? In a word, creativity. We set up a new writer’s group yesterday; The Darlaston Writer’s Group. It will hopefully encourage people to take an interest in writing and help them improve their craft. We now have a strong creative industry in the UK. It is needed because although we have goods that can be mass-produced relatively inexpensively, no one will buy them without advertising and marketing. That industry needs creative people who can write and produce visually appealing images and video. Some goods that are sold are now manufactured for a small percentage of the retail price, the rest goes on creating an image that makes the goods desirable.

creativity means creating images

People and places #ramble

It is Sunday morning once again and so, as usual, I’ll share my thoughts with you. People are curious, that is why mankind has been so successful compared to the other animals. We roll a rock down a hill and we think about it. That simple observation led to the wheel. I take photos of people and places. People like my photos because they are curious.
