Archives for the month of: January, 2008

Well I went to the British museum at the weekend, the first time I’ve been. Of course I took my camera and took a few pictures. I wasn’t really feeling it though, I felt a bit un-inspired. However before I went to bed last night I had a quick flick through the pictures I did take (still on the camera). And you know what, they were actually not too bad. They’re going to be blurry there’s no doubt about that, it was pretty dark in there. But the composition was actually pleasing.
Hopefully this will be the start of re-ignited enthusiasm for photography.

The postman did not know how right he was.
I was picking up a package that had not been delivered on the 21st of December (no-one was in). The postman thought I was luck because it was supposed to be returned to the sender on Tuesday, but the Christmas backlog meant that it was still in Guildford. I happened to know that this was just the beginning of the luck.
The package contained an iPod Touch, which I had won by accident.
You see what had happened was that I’d put down my deposit for the first stage of my traveling. At the time I did not know that this would enter me into a competition. I’ve already relayed the surprise I experienced when I got the phone call informing me that I’d won the iPod Touch.
Of course the luck goes deeper than that:
I’m going traveling this year, a trip that should be an experience of a life-time. I have great friends and a supportive family, in fact there aren’t many parts of my life that aren’t flipping amazing.
