(A second attempt – WordPress you swines, I don’t ask you to publish a portion of what I wrote, but all of it!)
Well winter is here – how do I know? Well my car breaks down (last week I turned the ignition key with forty-five minutes to go before I had to be at work – six miles away – and it sounded like an angry donkey remonstrating. I subsequently ran back to the house, threw on more suitable gear and pelted it on my bicycle. I got there in time but spent the rest of the day sweating and wheezing.) Also I know winter is here because I get an awful cough, always. Oh and the final indicator that the bad weather has arrived – our bathroom becomes mouldy. So basically things work less well (car-me-bathroom ventilation).

I also completed one of my challenges last weekend, number 18, portrait photography. My model and I wandered Manchester in the quickly declining light and I tried my hand, feeling like a real beginner. People photos always look more interesting than buildings and streets – and equally they require a bit more thought. I shall get there, but I think this set of pics shows it was my first time. Feel free to comment on the pics, and lovers of mince pies feel free to wax lyrical. I would have posted some writing but I’m at a schism – I’m reading lots and learning lots and hopefully in the near future I’m going to apply it in some wonderful shiny and sparkly way and create something superb. That’s the theory. Thanks for reading.
