Ah! weekends, did we all have a spiffing one? Being back part of the working community really helped me enjoy mine for sure. Saturday was a beautiful day, I did bugger all but that's OK. Picked up a few black and white films from the processor which were quite nice, managed a walk which I'm sure didn't help my knee...did I mention I had a bad knee? I need to make sure plenty of people know. Today has been a miserable day for sure...warm, muggy, drizzle. I haven't been outside the door....spent most of my time on here. Good job Jan was at work or I might have had a battle on my hands. I kinda like days when I do nothing...it's nice to vegetate from time to time, I just get the feeling I ought to do it a little more than I do..or not?

Today's photo was taken back in the spring on a day trip to Weymouth. This lovely lady Noreen Bailey was sat on the sea front with her dog Zak. She was so sweet and told us how she came down most days. I asked her if I could take her photo. She seemed very excited about the prospect and I told her I would print her a copy. I did one on the Hasselblad and one on the Holga which I fucked up! Double exposed but not in a nice way...still I'm quite pleased about this one. I'll get it printed, framed and I will deliver it to her door. Zak looked as if he didn't have too many years left in him so it might be a nice reminder when he is gone. I hope you like it also.
Here is an aerial shot of the area in which Noreen lives and where the photo was taken...she really is within spitting distance of the beach! If you have more of a leaning towards maps then here is a OS Map for you.

OK guys some of you have been wonderful enough to nominate me over at the Photoblogawards. I would like to thank all of you that have...but if you haven't then the link will provide you with a slightly easier way of doing so. I thank you in advance.
