See this boat?
|Ulysses Irish ferries|
I spent 3 and half hours on this, drinking wine, to counteract the seasickness I tend to suffer..purely medicinal...honest.
Not bad I hear you say? Ok, add to that the 8 and a half hours I spent on a train (only 2 changes thankfully...Ely and London) and the 3 hours waiting inbetween trains/boats, that's a total of 15 hours travel.
I am not complaining, you understand. It was actually great to put the numbers down to see the reality of the way we travel just because the boss hates flying, we have no bag limit apart from what we can reasonably carry and I still haven't got around to sorting out our passports they are only 5 years out of date ssssshhhhhh!!!
Earlier in the month I went on what I officially call 'Practise Manual Day'. This involved me heading down to Carrick-on-Shannon to take 219 photos with my DSLR. My first proper go at turning of Auto.
This one was caught thanks to the boss, who came running in from the pub thirsty work this photography business you know to state that I may want get to outside quickly. This was my favourite of several settings. It's just such a shame that my zoom is not very good.....wheres my 'to save for' list? *rustle of paper as it hides down the sofa*
This was the strangest sight...weighing scales on the train station. Guessing it was used for weighing parcels.
Below, is my favourite picture I took that day. Now, I just have to learn how to edit the rest ;-)
The last number because I seem to have lost track of myself is the 31 pictures I have managed to take for #fmsphotoaday on Instagram. I am hoping to carry this on throughout the year and am working on putting all the photos together like Mel does, so I can scrap/blog them. That can wait till work is over for the weekend though.
|My favourite 365 picture so far...prompt was sun and I edited in the camera+ app|
So, with that, I will leave you to head back to Julie to see who else has joined in with her Month in Numbers.
I am off to see if I can write my story for Storytelling Sunday before I go to work. I want a day off the computer tomorrow!!!!
