The UK government is about to leave us wide open to thieves who want to use our photography for their own purposes. If this legislation becomes law, it’s bye-bye Tumblr for me (and Flickr, too).
I rarely post something that is not mine. This is too good to not share. Looks like an amazing film.
I also seldom reblog but I agree…this looks wonderful. I just hope I get the chance to see it.
Spread the word folks - spread the word. This is one fabulous photographer and such a pity she never got recognition while alive.
Is it just me, or does Christmas and the period until we return to a level of “normality” in January leave anyone else completely flat? It’s been the same for as long as I can remember.
I’ve wondered if it’s down to the fact that I lost my dad at Christmas 20 years ago. Goodness knows that was an awful period in my life and I don’t think I ever really got through the grieving process.
Maybe it’s because I’m getting older and more cynical? Maybe it’s because we’re all expected to eat, drink and be merry is thrust down our necks every time we turn on the TV. The “teasers” for programmes become more ridiculous with each passing year. Maybe I’m one of those people that needs daylight more than most? Maybe it’s a bit of everything.
My wife is a wonderful, generous and loving person and I wouldn’t know what I’d do without her. But I become melancholic in the extreme at this time of year and seemingly nothing I do will shake me out of it. I must be a nightmare to live with through winter.
What with the wind and rain, I’ve been indoors more this year than most and it’s got to the point where I don’t care what’s on TV or satellite channels - so long as it’s not Eastenders or some other literally “unbelievable” soap opera.
My wife and I have those “go as often as you like” cards for the local cinema. Sadly, however, the majority of films released for Christmas are for kids and the hard of thinking. We’ve just got back from seeing “Life of Pi” - which may have been a good book (though I haven’t read it) but it was a sodding awful film. I read “The Hobbit” as a child. We went to see the film a couple of days ago and the only reason I didn’t walk out was because my wife seemed engrossed and my arse was so numb after two and a half hours of inertia that I thought I might as well save the effort of movement another half hour until the film ended. Apparently, there’s another two films scheduled to complete the story……
Frankly, in my opinion, Christmas really isn’t worth it. As an atheist, it is of no meaning or consequence to me, aside from a few days off work. Trust the Christians to usurp the pagan winter solstice and install their main festivities at the coldest, darkest and wettest time of year - unless you’re in the southern hemisphere, of course, in which case, I hope your barbecue went well.
Next year we will be somewhere a long way away from all such nonsense and return only once the bunting has been removed from sight.
Anyway, sorry for the rant to anyone bothered enough to read this but I just have to get it off my chest or go screaming mad.
