Please don’t miss out on the other photos in this post as August brought more opportunities to practice with my camera. A number are included here as I’m a big believer in practice makes perfect and one day I hope to get it right.
The days started to get warm again, not that they really got cold this year. I think the heater got turned on about a dozen times through what was our winter this year. I’m not sure if this was a result of global warming or just the fact the effects of my own “change of life” kept me warm with ongoing hot flushes.
I was determined to try to de-stress as work conditions got more difficult and demanding and because I missed my Sunday coffee catch ups with my best friend more and more so I was out and about. Lucky a few things were happening around town which offered great photo opportunities.
The warmer days, and interesting things to see, also encouraged my parents to come along with me on a couple of adventures. Dad stood for a good while watching the bat colony and we had no choice but wait for the steam train that was visiting town as it kept it’s own schedule. They had also waited 60 years for my eldest sister to turn that age and a get together organised by her friends saw us all have a night out.
