Today’s photograph is pretty much the view 180 degrees from yesterday. I really need to get out with the big cameras again. Hopefully, that will happen again with the warming up of the weather.
I was thinking about the time in my life where I just didn’t like black and white photography. Now, I’d only produce that if I had the choice. Funny how things change over time.
Hamilton opened up again in Sydney last night! Unfortunately, I wasn’t there to see it, but from all accounts, it went well playing at a “sold out” capacity of 75%. We have tickets to see it in Melbourne this May and the little lady is very excited. We’ve started playing it in the car again so, in her words, “I can remember all the words”. She’s also told me that she will be closing her eyes during the “sad” bits. I told her that I understand but for $200 per seat, I’d like her to watch as much of it as possible. “That’s a lot of money! Lucky it’s worth it!”
It was at this point I started wondering who replaced my five-year-old with an adult.
After dinner, I decided to drag my butt out on a walk. Now my walks are different to my family’s “walks”, or as I call them, “meanders”. My walks, according to my Apple Watch, are 5 kilometres long at an average pace of nine minutes and 1 second per kilometre. This means I missed out on the Australian Army PT required walk time for five km (in my age bracket) by only nine seconds! This is both frustrating and rather pleasing.
Unfortunately, exercise and not eating sugar are the two ways I can drastically lower my numbers from where they are to where they were six months ago. And one of those is not really possible to to the fact I just don’t want to. So that leaves exercise. As we are warming up and I have this strange predilection to enjoying exercise on hot days, I’ll get out more and drive those numbers down.
I should put my numbers here to be accountable but then my best friend’s wife will do her frowny face and I’ll feel really bad.
That’s it for now. Thanks for reading, I really appreciate your time and interest. Talk to you soon. Stay safe.
