So yeah, it’s been a while. Not as long as my other breaks, but hey, it was a break nonetheless. And just when I’d promised to pick back up as well. Shameful. I guess it takes a lot of will and hard effort to keep these sort of things going, eh?
Anyway, today I thought I might as well update you guys on what’s been going on.
My head’s been a absolute trash can, it really has. My thoughts have been scattered all over the place, my concentration hasn’t lasted for one minute, and I have no idea why. It’s getting better now though, I’m happy to say, so maybe I’ll be back into my normal routine by tomorrow.
I can only hope.
This week however, has (event-wise) been very…well…uneventful. My trip to West Park, however, was the best part of the week. I donned my blue and white check shirt, blue jeans, black trainers, and managed to get up there in the scorching weather. Not my best plan, but once I start…I don’t want to look like a fool and turn back. Unless in private. So, I got down there and went snap happy! It was a refreshing experience, seeing as I hadn’t had the opportunity to do such a thing for quite a while, so I was happy. Eventually it got too much though. I mean, I’m used to 10 degrees or less…not 30 and rising. SO of course I bailed out and went home.
When I got there, I decided to finish off editing my friend Laura’s photos from her ‘Fruit Salad’ photoshoot which she did with Sadia promoting her fasion design. It was a challenge, going for the same overall look, but making sure the tone and white balance presented the greatest clarity, I’ll tell you that now. But, of course, I did it. I am Alex, the Lightroom veteran, after all.
And that brings me to today. This morning I trolled through Sadia’s photos from her trip to France and made my changes on Lightroom, before sending them back, and got on with the day. Skip ahead a few hours, and you’d find me upgrading from Lightroom 3 to…you guessed it! 4! Not only that, but I made the leap from Photoshop and Illustrator CS5.5 to…6! It was worth it, I’ll have you know, so all you graphic designers and photographers out there better scrape your pennies together! It was the most excited I’d felt all day.
Until George came online, that is. Of course, we played Spiral Knights. Of course, I died like 10 times. Of course, George rubbed my face in it. And of course, I had to leave early, by demand of my mother. It’s pretty much the routine we have, so I won’t go into much detail, suffice to say that George is was more powered up than me…which leads me to believe he’s been playing some extortionate hours…
Anyway, I’m off for now, seeing as it’s like 10:59pm here. I would upload some photos from West Park, too, but my internet has ben slow as of late (don’t worry, BT Infinity comes 12th June). To look at them, just look in the sidebar and check my Flickr!
