Sunday 6 June 2010: THE BLIP DIET
How it works:-
Around noon prepare your lunch and, although peckish, take up your camera and 'nip' out of the house in search of a quick blip.
Wander around the place where you live (or anywhere else for that matter) and become totally absorbed in your quest that any hunger pangs are completely eradicated from your mind.
TWO AND A HALF HOURS later return home and discover that it is so late in the day that lunch can be abandoned in favour of the evening meal.
The above is exactly what happened to me today (and I had planned to put ALL my books back in their home).
My wandering, today, took me up by the church which is somewhere that I haven't ventured for a long time. It was a wonderful day for meandering as there were hardly any inhabitants about and although there was a fine drizzle falling the air was quite balmy.
It was so peaceful by the church and, as I was the only person in the vicinity, I was left at ease to play with the settings on my camera without any inquisitive villagers wondering what on earth the eccentric woman was up to now.
I found so many blip opportunities that, upon reviewing them, I was spoilt for choice. I also did a spot of experimenting with black and white photographs and have determined to revisit a number of scenes in the hopes of improving the quality of some of the blips that I took today.
In the end the above snail won THE WHEEL WORLD blip of the day prize although it was a close call between him and the church clock. The latter item lost out as I can always photograph the church clock on another day but it if I ever want to find a snail again there will not be a one in sight.
Now, I AM going to make a start on returning my books to their shelves!
