Oh, hello…

… you’re still here.  Good.  I’m here again too, and may even start to post things again every now and then.

Since my last blog posting we’ve moved house – out of Edinburgh and into the countryside, to the village of Balfron near Loch Lomond.  Moving is a bit an upheaval, and I may even have been heard to utter the words ‘too many books’ on one occasion – not that I really believe that it’s possible to have too many books!  But since I was still working (giving classes, marking, admin etc.), the pressure on my time in recent weeks has meant I’ve had no time or energy for photography, whether making images myself (whether for the windfarm essays or other photos), but also engaging properly with other people’s images.

So my body decided to do something about that.  On Wednesday evening I came down with a throat infection, and was laid up most of Thursday and much of today (though I was able to tweet and email in between a LOT of sleeping).  I felt rather refreshed by lunchtime today!

I had to collect my son from Stirling station this afternoon, and grabbed a camera as I went to the car and set off for the half-hour drive, stopping along the way.  These are three images taken just outside the village, wandering in a field: they’re sort of ‘None Places’ (to steal Al Brydon‘s term), but that doesn’t mean they should not be photographed.

And I arrived at the station only 5 minutes after my son’s train arrived!
