UK June 2011 – Day 12. “Surely you can’t be serious.” “I am serious… and don’t call me Shirley.”
I’ve been struggling with this project for quite a while. I thought the change of environment and the lots of photo opportunities of our UK trip might help, but I still find myself reluctant to get the camera out and take a picture when the opportunity arises. I could have taken a picture with my brother and his family this morning. I did take a picture but apart from an accidental reflection, I’m not in it. This afternoon and tonight we’re staying with friends, there have been loads of opportunities – we went out for a walk, we sat around a table in the garden chatting. I didn’t bother.
To make things worse I’m not even sure if it’s because I’m too wrapped in the moment, reluctant to interrupt what we’re doing, or just disinterested. Anyway the result is another late night leaning against the wall picture.
Note: Shirley is a suburb of Birmingham in the West Midlands.
