See you there!
The weather, tide and sunrise times looked set fair for a Dawn Raid today, so I prepared the gear and set the alarm clock for silly o'clock. I headed out for the Isle of Grain just after 5am, and was walking along the sea wall three-quarters of an hour later.
Was it worth getting up so early? I think so. But then I'm a bit nuts like that. I love the quiet, and the colours you get around sun-up on a clear day. You ought to try it sometime: I reckon sunsets are for lazy people!
Ah yes, my work. For many years I had been trying to make a living as a freelance designer. In the past four or five years or so, it became obvious I had been mistaken in trying to maintain the pretence. While casting around for other likely careers - though I had left it rather too late to make any sort of sensible career switch, and many prospective employers knew this - I found myself turning a hobby into a business.
Rather than poo-pooh the idea, I decided to roll with it. I am now a full-time professional modelmaker. I build scale models as commissions for clients. Without really trying too hard, I have a full order book for the rest of 2014, and I am making quotes for work to begin in 2015!
What this means for my online life varies. When at my workbench, I would prefer not to have distractions like social media. Then again, it's very handy to have the world wide web close at hand for research materials. I am trying to be more disciplined about it, so you might find I appear more often here again.
The thing is, G+ doesn't really fit the new career. My world here is much more phot orientated, and while I haven't been active this past few months, I have visited regularly to see what has been happening. As the new life settles, I hope I can begin to participate in some of the many groups I belong to.
Enough rambling. I have things to get on with!
I like to see your work, but please don't share things directly with me. If I've followed you back, I'll see your stuff in my timeline. Persistent offenders will be blocked.
This is the end of the Public Service Announcement.
