Naconf

Gathering interesting people who are great at what they do and speak passionately about something they love is a recipe for inspiration. That is what keeps me, the insurance broker, coming back to these conferences. I wasn’t as snap happy this time, and I didn’t see as much of Nottingham as I had wanted. When Friday arrived, which was when I was hoping to explore, it was overcast and I had a groggy head and depressed feet.

The conference itself did exactly what I had hoped it would do – made me excited about work. Recently I have felt in a difficult place with work, something I can attribute to almost 7 years working from home on my own, which only recently has driven me insane. Attending New Adventures reinforced that this is something I need to change, so if anyone knows of a nice, shared office space in central Glasgow, please do let me know! I’m open to suggestions.

Anyway, back to Nottingham. Rick and I visited Hooters on the first night and gorged on stodgy food. I thought about getting a boob job. Nottingham people think I’m Irish. This city still has the best Japanese restaurant I’ve been to (I will drive the 5 and a half hours just to eat here. Maybe). I talked about how I want to get into yoga while drinking a pint of cider. Good coffee is hard to find in Nottingham. Frank Chimero intrigues me. My hotel room had a see through bathroom door. And lots of other stuff, too.

 
 
 
 

Miss C.

The beautiful woman you see in this picture is one of my oldest friends. As a kid she was my neighbour, and we hit up the same primary and high school together. Despite Lindsay having travelled the world, we’ve always kept in touch. It seems crazy that we live in the same city, have something ridiculous like 17 years of shared memories behind us, yet rarely meet up. I hope to change that.

 
 

Rick Nunn Visits Glasgow

…And there was a horrendous downpour of torrential rain. Typical! A friend who enjoys shooting as much as I do visits and we can rarely leave shelter. I had made a list, too, and most of it involved being outdoors. Oh well, I guess this means he has to come back. Muhaha.

As you can imagine with Rick visiting (if you follow him at all), there was food, there was coffee, and there were photos with flash (and my lightbulb moment of realising I have to get away from ISO 100 when shooting with flash). Oh, and a wolf thrown in for good measure.

 
 

Friends

I rarely invite friends round on a school night, preferring to reserve weeknights for my workload, but last night we decided to get together at mine, cook some dinner and bake cakes. It was the funniest night I’ve had in a long time. This morning I awoke feeling so relaxed and content, and I can either put it down to all the laughs I had the night before, or the cake (cupcakes and banana bread).

So, this is what happens when a bunch of friends get together at mine, minus alcohol, and have a pair of 3D glasses lying around…

 
 

Friends Outside ABC

Popped along to the ABC 2 last night to catch my friend’s band play. To be honest the lighting in the venue was shite. I mean ISO 12,800 kind of shite. Anyway, Johnny And The Bomb (my friend’s band) are playing next Thursday (18th of August) in Pivo Pivo if you fancy them. They’re getting good feedback but are brand new on the scene.

 
 

Gerry Ness

If you look through my Flickr stream, 99.9% of the photos are naturally light. I woke up with an itch to shoot with my 430EXII today, probably because I’ve been on my case lately about not getting complacent / comfortable / whatever with my camera. I mean, I want to keep learning and delving out of my comfort zone. I’ve had my flash for an age, yet I rarely use it. Funnily enough, my favourite photos from today were the ones I actually shot with flash. I want to try the same again tomorrow, and the next day…

 
 

The Dogs

Carolyn has come and gone, and with her she took her annoying lovable pug, Malia. My dog, Indie, is on the left and they don’t get along very well. Actually, to be fair it’s my dog’s fault; she’s awfully unsociable and generally dislikes all dogs, so I was surprised to see them sitting so close.

 
 

French Lollipops In A Scottish Fishing Village

I hate to be the cliché that every British person is by bringing the weather into it, but seriously, we had Summer for a whole 4 consecutive days this year! We caught the last of it yesterday evening by taking my Mini to Arrochar, investigating an abandoned house, getting food posion (I don’t think James will be rushing back to McDonalds any time soon), and watching suicidal kayakers. It’s nights like these that make Summer special.

 
 

Bridesmaids

Yesterday I had the honour of being a part of my friend’s wedding, Sheryl (I’m the girl in the kiwi dress with the silly face). I’ve known Sheryl since college, and she’s my first friend I’ve seen to walk down the aisle. Needless to say, it was an emotional day. Anyway, despite being a bridesmaid I had to take my camera and capture as much of the day as I could without distancing myself from being a part of it. I just wanted one shot of Sheryl and John that I would be happy with. I wish you guys all the best!
