Another year has started I hope it’s going well for you so far. It seems really odd putting 2015 on letters. I remember back in the days of cheques how many times I crossed the old year out and have to replace it with the new one. Now we are more reliant on bank cards, PayPal and the likes take money without asking for a date it’s not often we get a chance to write the date.
I love the internet it was a fantastic invention you can access so much from your living room. When it first burst into our lives I was rather cynical and doubting about it now it’s like an old friend! My then husband bought a computer in exchange for a real Christmas tree every year as I felt it a waste of money and would not be used…How I eat my words now! And no I never had the real tree!!! In days gone by if you wanted to find out about anything it was through library books or encyclopaedias. A memory of the children’s encyclopaedia dad bought through the Readers Digest, some of the coloured pages in there took my imagination to places I would never see. Yet they stirred a curiosity in me to find out more. Today that curiosity is quenched on the internet; starting on one subject the internet cleverly puts links in; now if you are like me I find these irresistible you never know what you will discover. You might get a link to paintedladymodelling.co.uk now that would be fantastic!
All my photo albums need to be streamlined as I have far too many photos that really should be relegated to the bin. You know the ones the ones you take a couple of shots of just in case the first photo does not work. In the end both photos are kept just in case! Not anymore time to streamline the albums. I know my photos from Barcelona (I love that city) and Rome (amazing place I loved the history and art here) there are lots of duff ones yet somehow I really feel something deep inside me that won’t let me make the album smaller. Most things I am great at thinning out; if nothing serves a purpose or enhances my surroundings I have no troubles taking the object to the charity shop. Ah it could be the memories tied up in the photos. I am being sentimental that’s really nice.
Here is an example of two pictures same location! One is more zoomed in now do you see my dilemma? I know I would never make a professional photographer as I would want to keep all the photos. Imagine that in the days of reel photos and negatives.
Time to stop my ramblings, enjoy your evening
