Well after a long wait our department finally moved today. So I spent most of it without a running computer, running between rooms with handfulls of stuff, or in meetings completely unprepared as I had no computer. Still we are now in a room with better accustics, air conditioning for when it really gets too hot, a giant whiteboard that I am going to try and encourage people to use and...
Room for the table football that we brought as a department a few years ago, but have not used for a couple of years due to lack of space.
I have a few busy days coming up, going for a meal with a friend tomorrow - his local pub turns into a restaurant on Tuesday evenings and tomorow they are doing something special. So Stacy is going out again. I really have to get out more. Except for visiting my therapist I rarely go out as me - it's the one thing that I think I have to work harder on to get some confidence.
Which is good, because on Wednsday I am having my hair cut as Stacy for the first time, the wife of a friend cuts it for me. So I am eating there, having it cut and styled, and then I'm going out for a drink and chat with him.
Two trips in two days. Scary, but I'm looking forward to it. I just have to pack. On the bright side, I have my outfits picked (one per day). I wonder if I'll change my mind and end up taking two anyway...
And here are a couple more shots that I took whilst playing last week:
This guy sits on an elephant in the living room. A present from India from a colleague. Details: 20second @ f32, Sigma EXDG 180mm Macro 1:1 lens. I found my tripod :)
And this guy sits on some of our long drinks glasses. They were brought from BHS about 10 years ago - we were walking through the shop as a shortcut when we saw them. We have tried to get some more, but to no avail. So we try to be very careful with them :). Details: 10 seconds @ f3.5, same lens as above.
I'm really enjoying playing with the camera again - especially now that I have found the tripod so I can do more long exposure shots.
If the weather holds I may take a trip and try and get some shots of the buildings that keep my feet dry in our lake :) Some of them (espcially the older ones) look amazing!
