Remember my “Take a photo a day” thing that I was doing? Yeah, that failed miserably in April and May! I don’t know why really, I just completely forgot most days and when I did remember, I thought it was a bit pointless, considering I had missed so many days! Anyway, I’ve decided to restart for June, and I’ll have to mark that item on my list as half-achieved, I think!
I’ve also decided to do a thirty-day photo challenge that I spotted on Pinterest.
I’m going to try my level-best to do one a day, properly, but we’ll see. The ‘rules’ state that I can take the photo the day before and post it on the day. I’m also posting to the Flickr group.
So here’s my first photograph, a self-portrait. I decided to go with black and white for some reason.
Until next time (tomorrow, if I’m sticking to the schedule!)
I’ve just found some of my favourite photos in the world, and I want to share them with you. This might turn into an ongoing series, though let’s face it, I start enough of those without seeing them through to promise anything. But for now, let me show you these ones. First, some context, and artistic credit. These photos were taken by Robert Divall, in 2005, at a friend and work colleague’s wedding. The photos are of myself and one of my best friends, Anna Clarke, as she was at the time, though she is now Mrs Anna Divall. The photos were taken fairly late in the day of said wedding, and both Anna and are were in a state of inebriation by this point. It’s neither classy, nor cool, to get drunk at someone else’s wedding. But we did, and the result is these: some of my favourite photos in the world.
The reason I love them so much is because of how drunk we are, and how affectionate we are being with each other. I especially love the last one, because I love the way that we are holding hands! I also enjoy how much slimmer I am in these photographs compared to now! Oh, and how good my hair looks. Actually, by this point in the evening, it looks OK, but earlier in the day, it looked amazing.
Until next time
I’ve been remiss in my ‘Photo a Day’ challenge. That’s not to say that I haven’t been taking them, I have (and for the most part, I have actually managed to take one a day); it’s that I haven’t created my collage and posted it for you all to see. I know how much everyone is waiting to see the February and March instalments, so, here for your viewing pleasure, are both months now.
February first then. As you can see, I managed to miss three days in February. I can’t remember why (February feels like months ago, when it was actually only weeks ago), but obviously it’s probably just that I forgot. Also, quite a few of the photos at the start of the month are blurry, I think I probably took them on my phone and didn’t realise that they were blurred.
- I’m in my room in all but three of the photos; only one of those three was taken outside of my house.
- That photo is Number 20 – I’m in my sister Kim’s house, having just come home from a walk, hence the rosy red cheeks and hat I’m sporting.
- I’m wearing my glasses in ten of the photos (compared with five last month).
- I’m wearing the same top in Numbers 1 and 8.
- I look either scared or scary in Number 9 – I can’t decide.
- I like my hair in Number 27.
- I think I look best in Number 23.
I appreciated the feedback from both Richard and Vicky last time, by the way, they told me which ones they thought I looked best in, and Vicky told me that I looked like I belonged in a film in one of them (Juno or Garden State – she specified). So that was nice.
Onto March, which has only just finished, so this is very quick! As you can see there are two days that I missed in March. I missed the 12th because I was staying at my brothers and I just forgot to take a photo. I also know why I missed the 30th – sheer laziness. Neither my phone nor my camera were charged, and I couldn’t be bothered to get up and charge them. Terrible, I know, but there you have it. I’m a lazy so-and-so.
A few things to note:
- I’m wearing my glasses in 9 of the photos this time.
- I look hideous in Number 27. I had just washed my hair, my skin was all blotchy and red, and I just look ridiculous. Oh well. At least I know I don’t look like that most of the time. Number 14 isn’t great either!
- I’m outside my room for three of the photos, and outside my house for just one – Number 29 – and that was when I was babysitting for my nieces while their baby sister was being born.
- I’m ready for bed in four of the photos.
- I like my hair in Numbers 4, 19 and 24.
- I think I look best in Number 19.
So that’s that! Let’s see if I can manage to take one a day for April and not miss a day! I welcome any comments you might have about my face, though try not to be too mean! Until next time,

I’ve decided to start writing my blog again, as the last time I wrote was in January, which was ages ago, seeing as it’s April on Monday. I am officially closing my Myspace blog, but I might transfer all that I wrote onto here in some sort of archive, not for vain reasons but because I like reading over what I wrote all those months ago! All nonsense of course, but it’s my nonsense!
I am currently obsessed with ‘House’. I have watched just over half of the first series, and it’s amazingly brilliant. I can’t believe I left it so long before discovering it. Hugh Laurie is quite simply amazing in it, I love him and want to be a doctor so I can work for him.
I absolutely have got to start taking more photos. I say it all the time, but I never actually get around to doing it. I am just going to start carrying my camera with me wherever I go and that should work!
