Hmm… my last post was in March, and it is now May. A bit of a whoopsie. I think this is what happens when things get busy at work- my brain is done for the day by the time I get home, and I lounge on the sofa reading murder mysteries instead of doing the fun things that I like doing, (i.e. taking photos, sewing things, blogging) because those things require creative brain juices and my brain juices are fully squeezed by the time I get home. Thanks, work! Anyway, let’s not dwell on it. My work is interesting and pays me well, so there is that.
Moving on to the photo illustration of today’s blog: I am not sure how I feel about iPhone apps like Hipstamatic and Instagram (the latter of which I haven’t tried). They make things look all cool and moody and old-fashioned to the casual observer, and thus feel to me a bit like the photographic equivalent of a mock-tudor house in the suburbs. Which isn’t to say that I won’t use them, but I suppose when I do I want to say ‘I am doing this in a knowing way! I am aware this isn’t really the real thing!’ as if everyone else who uses them thinks they are. Maybe it doesn’t matter.
Which is a long-winded introduction to a photo of my lunch- almost certainly another modern-day cliche, the blogged lunch photo. What can I say, dipping my toe back into blogging, my lunch was pretty today! Banana, raspberries, blueberries and yoghurt. I am getting excited about all the lovely berries which will soon be in season…. clotted cream at the ready!
