Taking pictures with my eyes shut.

Funny old week. Yesterday I was taking pictures at my best friends funeral; sounds ghoulish I know but his widow has been in hospital for some weeks and the family wanted some pictures to show her. 300-400 people there, great send off.

Today I got an email saying I had two pictures shortlisted in the Landscape Photographer of the Year comp. Don’t spend the prize money yet it’s a long way from shortlisted to even being accepted.

Tomorrow I am taking pictures of the ground for the town cricket club. I was asked by the groundsman if I would do it as they had a cherry picker there doing some work on an aerial and he said I could use it for some elevation. I said yes of course, glad to help a local club. Then he told me the bloody thing has a 30 meter lift! I don’t like to stand on a chair to change a light bulb so I reckon tomorrow I’ll be taking pictures with my eyes shut!

  1. Ah, but I bet you’ll open your eyes and forget about the height because of the shots you can take that are so very different to normal people on the ground.

  2. Cogratulations on the shortlist-thing! Airezen sent to get the price!! 😉
    Me too, I have a terrible fear of heights… but you’ll be amazed of the sight and forget you are on a height! Just don’t bend over too much to have the best photo! 😉 Good luck, it will work, I’m sure! My grandfather (God has his soul) would say: If I can do it, you can too! 🙂 And he was always right, the dear man! So Bill, if I can do it, you can!
