I chose this photograph as it’s a nice tableau of the Frankston wharf area plus I LOVE the blatant disregard for the “VEHICLE WITH BOAT TRAILER ATTACHED” parking restrictions.
Oh, I and I also make a cameo. Can you find me?
Anyway … Wasn’t it just September?
“Freedom Day” has definitely hit Melbourne and the traffic into and around work was noticeably busier. If you missed yesterday’s post around my feelings about coming out of lockdown with case numbers in the four figures, please click here to be enlightened. It’s going to be very interesting monitoring the numbers over the next week or so and let’s hope I’m proven wrong! I’ll be more than happy to admit I was if the numbers don’t increase.
It’s my official return back to the office today. Luckily there is only a maximum of six of us in a huge open area at any one time and most times only three. That settles my mind a little. And I’m still working from home on Wednesdays to help with R when M has her “office” day. M is the opposite of me, she works from home four days per week.
As much as I enjoy working from home (well, parts of it. Getting up at 5 was no fun), it’s nice to be back in the office. Meetings are easier and I don’t have to call or rely on email for questions twenty times a day. Of course, my being back at the office four days per week has made things considerably harder for M and I’d like to publicly acknowledge that here.
I also get my 45-50 minute commutes to listen to my audiobooks and on Mondays, I’ll go straight from the office to pizza to band when that all starts again.
Looking at the candidate photographs folder, I really need to get out and about with my big-boy cameras over the weekend. I might go and see how far I can push the “taking photographs of strangers on public land” law that is in my favour before I get attacked. In which case I can sue them as I am completely within my rights to take photographs of any person outside and on public land.
Obviously, this is done with a certain amount of discretion and unlike true hard-core street photographers, I won’t be relying on a 35mm lens. In my case, it will be around 200mm.
I’m looking forward to not having to work over the weekend now I’m back at the office. It will be weird. It was strange enough lying in bed until 6:45 this morning. What is this strange world I now inhabit?
That’s it for now. Thanks for reading, I really appreciate your time and interest. Talk to you soon. Stay safe.
