A particular smug

Hi guys
Well, this I wore back in November. I guess it doesn't take a genius to work out I've been one lazy blogger recently ;) I can't even blame the weather - it's been mixed but there were enough sunny spots to get out my tripod. Only I've been taking a holiday from carrying it around :P

Nearly the weekend and nearly time for Glastonbury Festival too!
I think I am packing this weekend. I feel pleasantly "smug" being ready and packed for something I've been looking forward to for a long time :)

Gaffa tape and bin bags.. check.
Have a good one!

Hotshoe Timetravel

Oh tunic goodness. Not so awesome in full profile ;)

I wore this one day in late October. (Greetings from late October, how's June going?)
The morning mist looked pretty neat as I cycled to work, so I stopped and unpacked my tripod, only to find I'd left the release plate at home. Doh.

When I arrived home after work that evening, I set up my little garage studio to take these shots instead. Only then did I finally remember that I don't own a hot shoe adaptor to hook up my digital camera to my flash kit. Mega DOH! I rigged it by slaving my lights off the inbuilt flash, but the sync was a tad off. I guess I should have used a long exposure to compensate for that, but my brain wasn't all that on this dank evening. So, in short, more luck next time. I ordered the adaptor ;)

Now if I could only remember where I put that adaptor ;)
Thank goodness winter is over :D

Well, first of all: Sorry to all of you who have received DMs from my twitter last night. As many of you guessed, my account got hacked.
Luckily this was swiftly remedied :) Pf ooh! *wipes imaginary sweat from brow*
I can't help but imagine a pimply thirteen year old L33T HAXOR is responsible. I guess it had to happen sooner or later. ;)

Sunshine at last! It's been so dreary this past week I am TOTALLY revelling in the warm rays and blue skies. Sigh of relief. Swirl. Raise your hands like you just don't care. ;) Everything is easier when you wake up to a warm, bright day, no? It sure is for me.

On Saturday I attended my husband's graduation ceremony. He completed his BA in Art History quite a while ago so it was really nice to make it official. I'll show you guys some photos in my next post :) I was wearing a completely rad dress, if I say so myself :P

So long, have a fantastic day!
