I joined [livejournal.com profile] photo_scavenger when it started and in her latest post, [livejournal.com profile] curiouswombat pointed out that a lot of people have drifted away.  I will admit I am one of them, despite my best intentions.  I wonder how many on my f-list are members ... and if so if they ever have a go.  All it is, is one photo-challenge per week.

Anyway, as I'm off sick with flu, I have gone through this years holiday photos to post the last 6 colour challenges.  All were in America, July 2017.

Colourful, brown, orange, grey white, blue

This way to the colours )

So, pop over and have a go!

Hi - Remember Me?

I am back - and to say that the last month was amazing is such an understatement.  Brilliant, fantastic .... etc, etc.

I still am not up to date with my holiday blog, but am getting there.  For those who didn't follow it, but want to have a look, the first post is here .... it will save me having to import my photos. However, as I took over 3,500, if anyone wants to see more of anything, they only have to ask.

Hope you all had a good month - sorry I missed birthdays etc, but was staying off-line as much as I could so people who know me wouldn't realise my house was empty.

Did I miss any vital news, if so let me know ... otherwise, it will be a day or 2 before I am fully organised, then ... watch out!

No News

... since my big update of last week.  But thought I would at least type that as I have been missing so much over the last couple of years!

So nothing new on any of those points, although I have had a bit of a rough week with the chronic fatigue.  I fell asleep last Sunday evening and missed Church.  Then on Thursady I left work early, and fell asleep for the whole afternoon and missed Church music group.  However I have been a good girl and not got upset over it.  Today I am feeling quite a lot better, although got up late and am missing the gym.  Still I have made some spicy biscuits and aim to do some more knitting of my cardigan this afternoon, or evening.

One other thing is that I joined www.photocrowd.com which is free ... thought it might challenge me more on the photos.  Although if I am as bad with that as I am with [livejournal.com profile] photo_scavenger it won't help at all!

Oh well, as I said, no news ... so hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  You never know I may get some comments answered today!

Day 26 → talk about politics or current events this year

I always vote, whatever the year, and although I have never said I suppose a few people have guessed which side of the government I vote for.

I was very surprised about Brexit - but was also upset that some people wanted a second vote, as I thought that whatever a result, then we would deal with the result. I was incredibly saddened by the hatred that sprung up, as well. Whatever my politics, I have friends from all strands of the government ... no one should have to be murdered (as Jo Cox was), just because we have a difference of opinion.

I am not greatly involved in politics watching - Dad was though. However, again, if that's your choice, I am happy for you.



Day 27 → 3 goals for next year

Well I joined the gym a couple of months ago, so I should have waited and then that could have been #1!!!   Anyway, here are a couple of thoughts

  • Get back to photography

  • Do some more fan-fic writing

  • Practice my clarinet regularily

So, hopefully this time next year I will be able to report back!!

Day 21 → your favourite websites this year

Well, it still is LJ! Even if I have been a bit MIA this year, I still love it, and miss it when I can't get too involved.

My other website I like is Instagram, although I tend to use a different one called 6tag. But I do like sharing a few photos ... but also looking at other photos, especially ones about travel, or giraffes .... or Westies and other dogs.

The other sites are MSN & BBC news, Wikipedia, ... and eBay, of course.

[livejournal.com profile] kazzy_cee asked me - Can I have a photo of your favourite shoes?

I am not really a shoe person - to me a pair just need to be comfy ... my shoes I wear to Church may have a 4" heel, but they are still comfy!  However I do love these shoes ... I bought them last week to wear next Spring with jeans ... flowers ans sequins, what's not to like!!!

Can't wait for the spring to come )


[livejournal.com profile] thenewbuzwuzz asked me - How about the view from your window(s) or something you can see from there?
She also asked me about my fence paintwork ... so can cover both answers.

debris4spike: (Hi)
A couple of weeks ago I asked for people to ask me to photograph something.  Sadly, I only had a couple of responses but they both included photos inside my house.  As I have posted since, I am hoping to get a load of work done, so some rooms are empty, other rooms are completely full.  So, I haven't forgotten the requests, just will delay until I can actually see furniture again!!

Also, if anyone else wants to ask for a photo of something, please feel free to add to comments.
debris4spike: (M&D wedding)
You have seen pictures of Annemarie when she was over last year.  She is someone I have known all my life as her father was friends with mum & dad.  He was a missionary in Angola and whenever he was on furlough, if he came to England he stayed with us.  Sadly Annemarie's mum died of cancer in 1985, and she came from USA and spent about 6 - 8 months with us.  She was meant to be with her father, but when he talked about marrying again, she couldn't cope and came to cry in "Aunt Sylvia's" arms.

So, when she and Bob got engaged, they asked Mum & Dad to go to the wedding, and for me to be Maid of Honour.

So 25 years ago today I walked up the aisl in Northville Michigan to stand up for Annemaie.

It brings back great memories of the day, and our month in USA to post this ... and also memories of a steep learning curve in the differences between USA & England weddings!

Congratulations - here's to the next 25!

Just 3 pictures of the day )
debris4spike: (Confused - HPI)
I am still battling the internet and trying to upload my photos ... I have now contacted my provider and they are meant to be looking into it.  So, so frustrating that even one at a time they wont upload.  As I am having problems I may just scribble some things about my London trip (if you want) and post the photos when I eventually get done.

While arguing with the internet I have also been working on some icons, and did a bit of a silly thing ... I made an icon for [livejournal.com profile] btvsats20in20 (we were given a screen-cap to work with) and I quite liked it, but decided to do a different approach.  Now I have 2 totally different, and I like them both .... GGGGGggggrrrrrrrrrr .... what a twit, I should have stuck with my first thought!!

Health-wise things are slowly tightening up in my muscles ... one month till the specialist's appt, so hopefully I get some answers then.

Hope all is well with you

5 months - 11 Photos

I know I am meant to be actually cleaning, but thought I would scan ina  few pics ... these are all taken of me before the age of 11.  Looking at the school pics it reminds me how much the bullying has really affected me - I hate having my picture taken, but here in these pictures I look relaxed.

Anyway .... if you can cope with young me .... )

More pictures to follow, as and when I get organised.

How many people are still there.  It has been quite in LJ land and I miss you.

Anyway, busy plans today.   I am unpacking (at long last) all my photo albums, and hoping to finally sort my spare room to look like a bedroom rather than a dumping ground.  I am waiting for a new mattress to be delivered, which was promised last week, but they got the time wrong and I had a shift.  So today I am off work, but am determined to use the day positively.

So, now I have a question for you all.

What photo would you like to see?  I have photo albums from pre-birth(yes I have a few of family) dating up to 2007.  So, ask for a picture I will find it.  I do warn you that it will take some time, as I still have no index worked and have just under 2000 pictures!

So - ask away - anything, more than one, silly, weird ... and I will post, I promise.  Good Luck, with your choices!

Wow another weekend half way through - back to Exeter to night as the plumbers I told you about yesterday are coming early!

Church was good - we finished with a chorus that I first learnt when I was 9 and it's amazing how singing it brought back memories of the location. Nice when you get triggers of one thing leading from something else - music is very powerful, isn't it?

As you now know, internet use will be limited and last week my friend [livejournal.com profile] kudagirl  sent me a link to a 30 day photo meme someone on her list is doing. I told her I would do it next month. However, I am going to do day one today!

As you all know, I hate having my picture taken, but had to go in one of those photo-booth thingies yesterday ...And this is what I call scary )

In England photo ID driving licences came in years ago, but as my present one was (and is"clean") I never got it replaced. Now I have to change the address I have to send in a photo - so, that was the reason. I was told I had to have a neutral look on my face - I think I look as if I am fed up instead. It's horrible and will be on the licence for the next 20 years ... unless DVLA reject it!

Anyway - it is Day 1 ofThis Photo Meme )


The rest of the meme will follow as and when, with recurrent links as I go.

Happy Sunday everyone.
*hugs*

debris4spike: (Cap'n John)

The afternoon started on time, and we went into a bar area, where we could buy the Cap't John dols if we wanted. I am saving my money, so i was a good girl!

We then went into the theatre - and imagine my shock ... second row ... centre! I knew the seat allocation before I went in, but somehow I presumed I would be at the edge! I was sitting next to a lady who introduced herself from CDS (LateStarter) and another lady, whose name I promptly forgot!

As we had gone in we were given a goody bag - with a signed picture of Piccolo, a Battlesat Galactica Mousemat (I am old enough to love the original series), and a quiz. There was alaso a timetable, and about 3/4 of the bags had a magazine (but not me!)

Then Steve came and explained how the day was going to go.

Photobucket

Then it was time for the James-Fog to attack .... OOooops, I mean it was time for the photographs! Steve explained that we would all get one picture, and if we wanted any more we could buy up to 3 pictures ... So, bang went my theory of not spending any more money! Guess who bought some more pictures??? Yes, the easy option is that DJ can now go without his next set of shoes, I'm sure he wont mind, as it is all in a good cause!!

The order was roughly in the rows we were sitting in - and during the time they were showing "Teachers" on a screen.  This was apparantly filmed at The Queen Mary.  As well as seeing that, it gave us all a chance to get to know new poeple, and ctch up with friends.

Then it was our rows turn ... and we made our way downstaires. 

As ever, struck dumb by the lovely man!

I was lucky - a hug, then a picture, and he held me while the photographer checked the picture, and found it needed to be taken again - so the hug tightened, before it was time to leave him again ... with a whispered "Thank you" as all I could manage!

I then went up and bought the new tickets for the second oppertunity of pictures - well, this one may not have come out .... Although, here is the proof that it did -

Photobucket

We then went down again, and this time I managed a "Hello" as he gave me a hug, before I had my 3 pictures.  He is so patient, and caring - and great to have that oppertunity of being near him again!

debris4spike: (Call me!)
 Hoping that you can all help me ... one or two of my friends in particular.

As you probably now know I have a new camera, and want to get back into "proper" photography.  Now I have part of my problem ... can't think of anything to photograph ... I know that is silly, but when I did my course a few years ago, we were given tasks to do ... Fo me, that makes life so much easier.

So, PLEASE, could you challenge me ... What shall I take pictures of.

It can be a one-off picture, or a set ... small or large, I will give it a go.

However I must remind people there may be a time delay, due to weather at present!

Anyway, under the cut are a few pictures I took today of Stratton ... it was the original town, before Bude was developed in the 19th century.

Hi

I have just been sent a petition to sign, as there is a move afoot to make it illegal to take photographs in public places - ie outside!  So if you are interested in looking at the deatils - and even signing the petition do look at the link :-
