I don’t get out much these days. I’m normally only allowed to drive to and from work so when I actually had some freedom to roam I didn’t have a clue what to do with myself.
I had one of those opportunities this past Saturday (19 March 2016) after I left the family in town to go look for a camera strap in John lewis (they didn’t have what I wanted).
After that disappointment I found that my bus home was going to take 30 minutes to arrive so I decided to stroll home instead. While walking I saw a beautiful lanky dog poking it’s head through a gate over the road, I knew there was ‘nice pic’ potential over there but my daily travel programming temporarily overruled the urge.
Luckily I had the epiphany that I didn’t need to rush home asap and so made my way over, it was quite a nice liberating feeling. As I approached the dog I snapped a pic then knelt down to pat him and that’s when I noticed the owner was there.
It was great to pause for just a few minutes to have a nice relaxed wee chat with someone about dogs and comfortably take numerous photos without the worry of rushing about like a feil. I also think this was the first time I didn’t take a digital camera with me into town and then wished I had.
Sunday was no day of rest, the Homemade camera was out in force but more on that next post.
