Thank you one and all!

Just topped 17000 views. Thanks to all who have visited this blog. Please come back again soon…Image

This is a shot of me and Morris, my dad’s car way back then in the dim and distant past. It was shot with an old Kodak ‘Hawkeye’ camera (I think) that my dad used to use. If you want to see more cameras that have played a role in my life then go here. (Unashamed plug for my Photoblog).

I’ve also blogged about my ‘Box of old cameras’ here.

I’ll be blogging here too from time to time. So once again, thanks for visiting.

A conversation overheard

Taylor Simons new website

A sneak peek at the new site

I do hope everyone had a fine Christmas and new year break, despite the weather conditions here in the UK at the time. I’ve neglected this little blog of mine lately and I apologise but we, (that’s Gina and myself), have been very busy preparing a new website for our studio (see above) as well as other more mundane things that simply took up most of my time. Our old site needs an overhaul and once I’ve ironed out that last few glitches I’ll upload the shiny new one.

I resolved that I would do something about the lack of posts today and so pen and Moleskin in hand I decided to drop into my favourite coffee bar and bookshop to do a little writing. I love the smell of coffee mixed with the aura of books all around me, it helps me think.

Parked in one of my preferred spots with a ‘flat white’ I opened my note-book ready to write when I overheard a conversation. Now don’t get me wrong here. I don’t normally eavesdrop on my fellow coffee drinkers, in fact I usually like to blank everything out, but the two elderly women sat a few tables away were speaking so loudly I couldn’t help but overhear.

They talked and they talked, but what really stuck in my mind was when one of them said, “I turn the internet on and then off again and can’t do anything in between”. It just made me smile and I wanted to share it.

I guess we and by that I mean professional computer users, take a great deal for granted and though computers and their interfaces have come a long way, for some, they and what they offer, are still largely out of reach.
