out on the wiley, windy moors...

365:2011 - 1st January 2011 - Day 1 of 365

 

Please view in lightbox

 

I noticed that once I'd finished my previous 365 project I could go for weeks without picking up my beloved camera. It seemed that without a daily reason to use it, I could always find something "better" to do with my time...

 

Unfortunately, I had not factored in the stabilising role that photography had taken in my life. I had all of this "free" time on my hands but my sanity once again began to slip away. It was unnoticeable at first, but slowly the volume of the soundtrack in my head increased, my mumbling became more frequent, a blind fury of rage was stirring deep inside... Something had to be done and I know, that in my case, creativity kills craziness...

 

So here I am; back on the 365 wagon, holding on for grim death and not entirely sure that the next pothole won't shake me off... but hey; one down, only 364 to go!

 

Ready for the new 365 challenge and full of bacon, optimism and the previous night's booze, Kate and I went for a walk up to Belas Knap, a neolithic long barrow, near Cheltenham. It was a misty, rainy walk. I took lots of photos, we got very wet.

 

This was one of my favourites of those I took; a family just emerging from the mist. I have started to process a few of the others and may post them when I get around to it... (I believe I already mentioned about the free-time/365 see-saw.)

 

Earlier in this rambling post, I touched upon the ongoing soundtrack in my head. During the walk it was this, enjoy!:

♫ Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush ♫

 

Also; I know of at least two other members of the Flickrarti whom are attempting a second year of 365 craziness:

Stacie and Tara... So please, go and cheer them on!

 

I'm blogging this 365 too, my shiny new blog can be found here: blog.chernobylbob.com
