Margaret Thatcher RIP

Watching Margaret Thatcher as she flattened all about her reminded me how much she lacked a counter-force to her over whelming personality.

She needed a World War, in my opinion. Some calamitous event through which she could prevail. In the absence of such a counter force, she proceeded to level all that raised it's head discordant with her view. Poor old England.

Autumn Begins

Im got my first SLR in 1978. An Olympus OM1.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olympus_OM-1
I've still got it but nowadays its nothing more than a paperweight for which I have some fond memories. Still it taught me a lot about photography. Now I have an entry level Nikon and love using it. Quite apart from all that photography stuff, bling and what-have-you, with my Mother being an Artist, we used to go walking in nature and it was my Mum who really taught me to look, and not just see. So combining the camera with Mum's encouragement, photos took on a new meaning. I'm not very good at it, and frankly I'm unmoved by what others think, but photography became my pallet and the camera my brush, and we were off. I finally felt like I had a means of artistic expression.

For me the joy is to turn the mundane into the meaningful, and expression of simply-felt delight. So the other day when the leaves on the tree outside began turning, I was delighted and became consumed for an hour or so "capturing" the turn of seasons.

Gidday from my phone

Hello to my loyal fanclub on 1

Hello Louisa

Blast The Blogger Anderoid App

Ive been struggling for sometime now to use the Blogger Anderoid app. Ive just now re-downloaded and installed it, and it appeared to be working ok. Spent 10 minutes posting, and blam, no-post. So this post is being updated via the tablets web browser. So far, so good. Its big-time convenient to blog from the tablet, so heres hoping this is going to work out.
