Day 92 – A bag full of goodies

December 22, 2009 Leave a comment


This evening I had coffee with Roger Overall. Roger kindly offered me his time, knowledge and advice to open my eyes a bit more to the idea of embarking on the photographic journey towards self employment. I went away from the meeting feeling like I had just been handed a bag of goodies.

I would have loved to have stayed longer as it turns out Roger was also meeting some of the great Cork wedding photographers, I did mange to get a few introductions. However I needed to go and finish off the repairs to my sisters central heating, which I might add is now fully serviced and back running at full capacity. Now if I could just find a way to get rid of the smell of diesel off my hands.

Manual Reading

Today I decided to start on my flash manual just fora bot of variety. Page 7, getting started and basic operation.

I’ll be reading more of Visionmongers before bed so I’ll be looking a few of David DuChemins images again.

Work towards self employment

As mentioned above I met with Roger Overall to have a chat on this subject. Eyeopening and thought provoking stuff. Some of my thoughts have been reinforced, other unknowns have been highlighted.

I also think I may have narrowed down a niche area of interest to myself. A bit of research into the area and I’ll have more to tell later.


Day 91 – Busy busy busy

Today didn’t go as planned but hey stuff like this happens. On the way out for a sunrise image I managed to do two pirouettes in the car within a few miles of starting the engine. Recovered without problems I decided to turn beck and wait for a safer sunset option. In the meantime I went and did all the Christmas food shopping and the last of my present shopping. With it all done with plenty of time to spare I got a call from my sister, her central heating had stopped and wouldn’t restart. That was the end of my plans. A few hours later and I have just gotten home from stripping drown the heating system and locating the problem. A new part is needed so they will have a cold night tonight. With any luck I’ll have it back up and running again in the morning once the hardware store opens,provided I can take a half day from the office. All these skills and abilities I put down to the teachings of my father, he was a man who could put his hand to anything and always explained to me what he was doing. This is certainly the reason I can competently do such a variety of jobs from repairing circuit boards to roofing.
Just aswell I got the image above with my camera phone before starting my shopping.

The photos in the manual for the heating system. Technically fantastic.
