Well I have to say thanks for the nice comments on my old photo I showed you yesterday. It seems the subject of old photos and old feelings etc has touched a bit of a nerve and got some of you thinking. Someone pointed out that we as women are always too hard on ourselves. Yes, I have to agree with that and also that many of us (men or women) are just too damn hard on ourselves as people in every respect.
When I rummaged through those photos the other night I looked at them as a separate person, I didn't really look at them as 'me'. That made the difference, I complimented those photos, I could see the good. This is a bit of a breakthrough for me as before I would look in me mode and just see the faults. Now think about it, an outsider wouldn't just look at the faults, they'd look at the whole picture in an open light. Why should you then be so hard on yourself and just look pointedly for the bad bits.
Having just said all that and sounded quite rounded and rational. I will now admit that I was floored yesterday when they showed my childhood photo on the telly just as they introduced me. Talk about going red in the face! For some reason I thought all the experts photos would just be shown together somewhere inoffensive, didn't think I would be flashed accross the screen in all my grainy glory circa the 1960s.
I think that was the pay back time for my moment at Christmas when I nearly choked Michelle with my nasty hangover cure.
So, photos today.
Well these were all taken yesterday morning just along the lane. Just look at those mountains in the distance. With the snow melted on the fields, the mountains and snow in the distance just don't seem real. The light was perfect, it was shining down on those folded peaks and highlighting that snow. It looked like icing sugar. Great piles of sugar with the clouds there as if the icing sugar dust has not yet settled and is hanging in the sky.
This is what makes remembering to carry a pocket camera worthwhile.
What have you photographed lately?
