Patience is a virtue

As a majority of people should know by now, parts of the UK and Europe witnessed solar eclipse today.

I awoke this morning at about 8:30am and rolled myself begrudgingly out of my nice warm bed. It was depressingly overcast here in Totnes, Devon. I shrugged my shoulders and put the coffee machine on.

Whilst the coffee machine was percolating it’s tasty black goodness, I ventured into the back garden to assess the situation. It was thickly overcast and not looking very good to be honest. Meh. I go back inside to the coffee machine, in full knowledge that at least that won’t disappoint me.

I head back out again, my 2 vices in my hands (coffee and nicotine) and have another look. Above our roof I can see patchy blue sky, of course, the sun is in the opposite direction. My spirits lifted by this I set up my tripod and camera and played the waiting game. Roughly an hour later I was rewarded for my patience.

From the archives…

I’ve barely picked up a camera this year and have almost totally ignored the 10 or so films that need developing. My mojo is most certainly lost.

However, it’s grey and horrible outside, so I’m finding that I’m poking about in the archives a lot more and pulling out images I’ve previously passed over for some reason or another. Hopefully whilst I’m digging about in the past, I’ll find where I put my mojo.

These 2 photos are from a trip I took with my family in 2010.

Many many angles
