Nothing Much

1 Jul

I have nothing much to report. I wallowed in a bit of misery this morning as my Photography Course is now over. What to do with myself on a Tuesday morning…?? Mmmmm – something I could stew over for quite a while. There is a follow up course that I am DYING to do…

**pause while I wipe the drool off my keyboard**

But I really don’t have the funds for it. And, even if I could magically whisk the funds from my bond (Ya, right, not with the interest rate going up AGAIN), I don’t have the energy to negotiate with Dave. This one is on a Monday NIGHT (gasp) – which means that he would have the bath/bed routine all to himself…

So I will have to drool for a while longer.

On a positive note… THEY PICKED MY PHOTO STORY!!! Whooopeeeeeeee. I feel, like, smart hey. On a totally bummed out note, they put my “Old and New” photo into the slide show… under someone else’s name….. W.T.F.????????????

They build you up, only to bring you crashing down again. Maybe they have some reverse psychology going on. Or something.

    Well done.Pia, on having your photo story chosen. I also loved your old and new photo, ( although I didn’t vote…too stupid to know how to do these things…but it was very evocative of Johan Smith’s paintings and reminded me so much of them. If I could paint, ( but I can’t, not even a wall) I would paint that photo. I think it is brilliant. And a little suggestion here: you took wonderful shots of the Green Point stadium straining up into the space above it.
    So take yourself out to Darling way, to the four windmills which have just been erected there.
    Every time I see them on the hill up against the sky, I get a little shiver. This last time I thought, where is Pia with her camera.
    Do go!
