My Jawbone Up Experience

I treated myself to a mint green Jawbone Up (these are not my hands in the photo, though – they’re Ryan’s!). Last year I was training for a 10K and only having one cheat day a week. I was in the best shape I ever have been. This year, my willpower with food has disappeared (I can’t say NO!), and I’ve mostly given up on cardio in favour for lifting. Truthfully, I don’t like the way my body looks. More importantly, however, I don’t feel as good as I did this time last year. I figured that having a Jawbone Up in my life would encourage me to move more (it has), as well as truthfully log my …

 
 

Chicken Soup

A low-key evening, spent watching the tennis and a Korean horror movie at Ryan’s house in Govan. I decided to take it easy tonight as I’m shooting a wedding tomorrow, and fortunately the Korean horror movie wasn’t scary enough for me to lose any sleep over. Ryan’s face is scary, though.

 
 

“Sausages?”

It’s been a while since I’ve papped my camera in Indie’s face – especially with the 28mm lens. I think, after 52 Weeks, I had exhausted her tolerance with the camera. Nothing entices a dog to pose quite like the promise of sausages, though.

 
 

May on Buchanan Street

Remember my November on Buchanan Street photo? It was damp and rainy. Well, this is my May on Buchanan Street photo. It is also damp and rainy. Scottish summer!

 
 

Laura Mute

So, after not seeing Laura for a whole year (Laura always loses her phone and I always change my number), we caught up on Saturday over brunch at Lebowskis. Laura is easily one of the funniest people I have met and has an enviously laid-back view on life, a stark contrast to myself. Hopefully another year doesn’t pass before her face is on my blog again.

 
 

Iain’s Prized Possession

Iain travelled all the way to New York City to see his favourite band, Green Day, play. I guess the trip was worth it, because Tré Cool – the drummer from Green Day – personally gave him this plectrum. I think Iain will be treasuring it for a while, he’s a pretty die hard fan.

 
 

Temporarily Lost

…and I have no idea what I’m doing. I know a lot of ‘creatives’ get into this lull from time to time, but my lull has been worryingly prolonged. I am putting it down to my time being taken up with other things, and – as a result – I’ve found myself picking up my camera less and less. I do have a shoot planned with a girl early May, and it will be good to push myself while doing the style of photgraphy I know will excite me.

 
 

Black Sparrow

Yesterday evening was interesting as I went for dinner with Emma, who I haven’t seen for a couple of years. We caught up over a burger at Black Sparrow (we both had the, well, Black Sparrow – cheddar and jalapeños). Afterwards, Mark joined us, and him and I partook in the Black Sparrow music quiz. We came joint last with another team. This doesn’t bother me too much, but Mark is a music producer!

Also… ISO 6,400!

 
 

Ginger

Today I spent a bit of time with Gary. He carried my new guitar home (thanks, Gary) and hung in my apartment while I edited wedding photos. He’s playing a gig at the hotel next door to my house, so I popped over and took some photographs of The Real Easy All Stars, which I’ll share later in the week. It’s been a good Sunday, but it’s been mostly work and no play. I want to play.

 
 

Kym ‘Krispy Kreme’ Ellis

Yesterday – after spending the weekend in England for a wedding I was shooting – I had the pleasure of trying my first Krispy Kreme doughnut and meeting Kym Ellis. Kym and I have tried to meet on a few occasions, but something always gets in the way (like January’s crazy blizzard). It was great to finally meet as we both love cameras, coffee and  – now that I’ve finally tasted ’em – Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I want to try them all. ALL OF THEM, I TELL YOU.
