Hurrah! Another year and still here. Have I done anything good or memorable photographically? I loved diving in the Red Sea. I enjoyed treasure hunts to make pictures on a given subject. I met some heroes and saw some interesting stuff at the NEC show. I sold a load of unused cameras. I bought a very good camera. I did some things I’ve never done before.

Have I had a good year? Yes, both in photography and in real life. I’ve been retired from full-time work for a year now and don’t miss it a bit. There does come a time when it’s good to go, if you can. I’ve adjusted to much less money but much more time more easily than I thought. I did wonder if I would miss the status and excitement of my work, particularly as I’ve taken a little part-time job as a complete minion. Not a bit, though. These days, when stuff breaks, it’s not my problem. And as Douglas Adams said, that confers invisibility. It’s not that I don’t care, just that I don’t have to. I really don’t mean to be smug, though. I’m grateful.

But Christmas looms and family and friends are visiting. I hope you too can enjoy the season and other people.

Time for a knees-up


Oh, and a PS. Who said wishes never start to come true? And from Pentax too – I’m delighted.

More cheers.

Still wishing I knew what was going on.
