A New View of Skye

Several years ago, we went to Skye for the day. I'd completely forgotten about it until recently. My friend, Amel, reminded me. She was talking about her trip to London. You should go look at her photos. they're great! She even took photos of some really fancy public toilets. That made me laugh, because I've been known to take photos of public toilets as well! :D

And that's when I remembered the toilet in Skye. This was at a little place, where you stopped before going across the bridge that links Skye to the mainland. It was completely decorated with posters, postcards, toys and ornaments. I've never seen anything like it!

Here's the photos...

Been a While

It's been a while since I felt like blogging. I think everyone reaches that stage, where the ideas just dry up or you're too busy to remember to write. For me, it's been a bit of both. And then there's the sad fact that blogging seems to be a dying thing. More people are moving to the fast and snappy media, like Twitter. 

At first, I felt really sad about that, but then I thought about how each stage of my internet experiences have brought me new friends and knew chances to grow and learn. I "arrived" online at the moment when internet forums were the hottest new thing. I met and made wonderful friends that way and I was heart-broken when most of the forums I loved turned into ghost towns or were shut down. But then, at that time, I was just beginning to blog. And in blogging I met new wonderful people and madesome fantastic friendships.

So... as much as it will hurt my heart of blogging dies out completely, I know there will be new things to learn from and new people to meet. All part of life's journey. :-)

My First Selfie

I took my first selfie this week. Yeah, I know - I'm a late bloomer! 

I think many photographers fall into that trap of being more interested in what is around them. I love nature, I find human faces awesome (wish I was a portrait artist/photographer), but with all that looking outwards I tend to forget my eyes are in a face as well. LOL LOL 

Drum roll moment... here I am.  Taken on the spur of the moment, so excuse the crazy angle.
