Whinge whinge blah blah sucked at interview blahblahblah… After all that, I got the job!
What does this mean for my photography? Mostly just that it’s going to take longer to clear my backlog. I spent 2 months travelling in the USA late last year, which included five National Parks, at least two National Monuments, and a wedding, so I started the year with several SD cards absolutely chocka-block. I’ve been sifting the gems from the crud ever since, all the while taking photos of my new home in Australia.
But what won’t change is my passion, and sharing my photography fuels my passion more than anything, so my blog, flickr, redbubble, zazzle will still march on. Today, since it’s raining. I’ve been trying to create a photo idea I had for my new umbrella (it’s funny what’s inspiring sometimes, isn’t it? Still, I take what I can get), but despite running around everwhere I’ve been a bit stumped due to a lack of a decent background in a place where my camera won’t get soaked, and, ironically, not enough rain falling to get the effect I’m after. Hmph. I think I’ve solved the first problem, although I had to alter my angle considerably, and for the second, well I’m keeping a steely eye on the local weather radar (isn’t that page ace?). I’m still doubtful that the photo will come off, but I can’t say I didn’t try.
In the meantime, have some fireworks to celebrate me being able to feed my bank account once more!
This was taken at Rhein en Flammen (literally, the Rhine in Flames), a spectacular annual fireworks extravaganza held on the Rhine in Germany. This was taken while sitting on the banks of the Rhine by St Goar. I adore fireworks, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a fireworks display quite like this one. There’s fireworks from castles and huge amounts of fireworks over the river, fired from barges, and it lasts for absolutely ages. Rhein en Flammen is a must-see for any fireworks enthusiast.
