More photography work!

Just when I say I'm hanging up my camera, I get even more photography work. Off to photograph stainless steel stuff tonight at Yes, its another glamour job for me. The next on the agenda is placentae. Hmmm...

It seems its a year since I did a blog post. Since then I have been a bit more active on twitter - microblogging, as they say. I do have to restrain my tweets sometimes as the temptation is to use twitter as a vent for anger and frustration. Anyway, if you want here more from me, you could follow me on twitter! @abbeydaleweb

Huuray! freedom

From a photography point of view, I'm now free at last, because I've pretty much given up on being a photographer in a professional capacity, and now I'm loving it more than ever!

January, I really don't like January. The low light, the cold, the wind, the short days.

So, good things about January

1) Its a good time to start new projects, beacuse there aren't are holidays about to rear up and put a halt on things.

2) Its a good time to have a clear out.

3)Its good when its over?

4) January sales?

5) I'm not fretting to go outside because the weather is nice.

Who are we kidding?

Who out there really believes that planet earth and the developed world can continue as we are?

I don't.

We have a planet full to bursting point, with 7 billion people, and the population is expanding very quickly. The politicians want growth to continue, but how can we? The third world is coming to a point where they want what the rest of the world has. The natural resources of the planet are being stretched to the limit: earth will run out of oil, minerals, and even water seems to be in short supply.

So how can we continue to grow? what we need is a sustainable and decent standard of living for everyone on this planet. This might need some hard facts to be absorbed. Such as, its just not OK to have a busload of children - 1 maximum, per person - ie you have a child allowance. China has managed the 1 child per family, its time the rest of the world learned from them.

Content Management System

Just a gratuitous plug for Mike's fantastic new software. Its a content management system for small businesses, designed from the ground up to be used by idiots. Maybe he had me in mind. I keep thinking of it as Pancake.

Off to a wedding tomorrow, half as guest, half as photographer.
