My blip name 'GOD' is short for my journal title,  Growing Old Disgracefully.  I don't mean to be disrespectful - it happened by accident and folks seemed to like it so I left it. 

I am a sixty-seven year old Granny, carer, and occasional mindfulness teacher.  I live with my professor, who is quite simply the most wonderfully witty, kind and loving man you could meet - lucky me.  Two days a week we are joined by our youngest grandson, who fills our lives with joy and keeps us on our toes and in our place.

Blipping for me is more about the journal than the photograph, although I do want to improve my images and am inspired by what I see here. I benefit enormously from following others' journals, but I limit my subscriptions to a few journals that in some way speak to me especially.  When time permits, I browse and comment on whatever chimes with me.  Please don't be offended if I don't return - it is only a time issue.

Technical: I have a NIKON D3100.  When I am laden with other stuff or having fun with my grandson, I tend to use my aye-phone.  Recently I got a Fuji X100T - at the moment I loathe it, but that may change.

I like getting in close and recording the detail, especially of pebbles, flowers, mosses and lichen.  I often find enough inspiration in our almost half an acre garden, where I raise fruit and veg and the flowers fend for themselves.

Recently I've been doing arty stuff, so not so often on here, but still love the Blip community for its endless inspiration and encouragement.
