Ever since I moved down south my beloved L was determined for me to make some local friends and perhaps try a few new hobbies. I never really did that, mainly because being with L was such great fun that I rarely felt I needed any other company.
I did get involved with archery for a while as she was great at it, but in the end I found it not as interesting a hobby as I expected.
So with L passing I realise I do need to get out more, perhaps find a hobby that I can do that doesn’t mean dragging Patrick & Katie around a golf course or something complicated that would affect their feeding regimen.
For some time I’ve been considering getting more into photography. I’d talked to L about it and she encouraged me to find a local club or go on a nightschool course. And today I was spoke on the phone to a friend who has encouraged me to give it a go.
So I’ve decided I’m going to try to get more into photography, learn more about the subject and treat it as a more serious pastime than merely taking a few quick snaps. There’s plenty of gorgeous scenery around here and lots of interesting subjects, so it seems worthwhile.
I don’t know how good I’ll be at this, but at least I’ve found something new to occupy me other than making miserable blog posts.
