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.

Share my thoughts?

Anyway, I’ll try to share my thoughts. It was a good week and I started compiling an eBook with an eclectic mix of words and pictures. I’m doing it to publish at Christmas and so I’ve called it my Christmas Book. It has some of my photos in it, quotes from famous people, some art of various kinds and I intend to put poetry in it as well. I hope to get contributions from my friends but no one has shown much enthusiasm so far.

Writers’ Group

I went to meet the writers’ group as usual and the library was closed. I eventually met up with some of the group at Mindful Gifts, a shop about 200 yards away. As usual, we talked about everything but writing, such as ghost hunting and bird photography. I did mention my Christmas Book, I have a copy of the draft on my phone, so writing was touched on!

Festival

I am trying to share my thoughts but hunger distracted me and so I had to scoff a couple of gluten-free jammy dodgers and make some tea. My trip to the town hall this week is to take some photos which will show the work of the volunteers there, who we hope will volunteer to be involved in a festival next year. We never seem to get anything exciting in Wednesbury and so I’m trying to get the idea of this festival moving forward at a very early stage so we get a share in it. We really need more volunteers getting involved in the community in Wednesbury but there always seems obstacles. Volunteering is mostly done by women and a few men who want to contribute to the community after they have retired. It has its rewards but the rewards are emotional, in that, they feel appreciated and of course, they make new friends.

St George’s day

I shall photograph the big St George’s day parade again this year. That’s only 3 weeks away. It is usually cold but it could be even colder this year. I usually photograph the parade when they are halfway through the walk to the park, with a long lens. I’ve done it a few times now and coping with the weather is the biggest challenge. I tend to feel the cold and shivering can really mean blurred photos!

New Camera

I’m thinking about buying a new camera, but for the parade, the one I have will be good enough. I’ll wait and see what my involvement in the festival will be. It will be quite handy to have two cameras at some events. I won’t have to worry about changing lenses. The camera that I’m planning to buy will take me to a professional level and will mean I can get better pictures in low light and it will allow me to do things like bracketing and maybe upload photos directly to the internet. News photos could be tweeted directly to a newspaper picture desk, for example.

That’s it for this week. If you would like to follow my blog just enter your email address at the top of the sidebar or follow me on Twitter for updates. There are also links on my Facebook page.
