How do i get things sorted
Happy birthday BDB.
A lovely evening was had with the lovely DS.
And today I'm working from home due to IT probs at work.
LOL doubt that.
I'd hope for the same with the IT at my place but that would mean I was the one crawling round in dark spaces checking connections and putting backup plans into place. That usually happens around 8am on a Saturday morning
I just can't get into Jo Nesbo at all Pea. Like Steig Larsson only more complicated Apparently the film of one of his which is out at the moment is excellent, if a little gory.
I don't envy you the hygienist. Too much rooting about with sharp bits of metal for 'your own good'.
Nice chilled birthday had. Popped out for dins with a couple of friends to Cafe Rouge. Steak and chips - yum! Think I'll have a little choc-ice now to finish off
I've got a Jo Nesbo to read after Alan Partridge which is very funny, so I'm reading that slowly so I don't miss the gags. I'll have to get the audio version of it too.
Good luck with the hygienist Lee. It's not the most comfortable experience but think how clean your mouth will feel after (before)(during)(after)
I've not tried any Jo Nesbo books....i'm on a Val McDermid one at the minute.
Lee can the hygenist not put some 'numbing gel' on your gums?
Off to visit my friend soon.....hope everyone has a good day.
Hello lovely folk...
I am stressing... LOL... I made a late decision to stay over Saturday night after all, as I'll be on my feet all day, concentratinge tc and was worried I'll fall asleep on the M4 on the way back, so found a cheap as chips B&B in Aylesbury. I have to make a list of the types of images Booky wants, write down the ushers who's job it is to herd the masses on my behalf... charge all three cameras (probably overkill, but I'd never forgive myself if I had some sort of technical fail and no back-up!), take spare SD cards, ...
Have to drop the dog with a friend for the day. My new best friend the Sat Nav will hopefully get me there and I should have a good 3 hours beforehand to be able to check out both venues... I never like when I haven't seen the venue beforehand, had a bit of time to ponder light sources, angles, do a bit of experimenting. I also need time to chat to the vicar beforehand to introduce myself, and to see when they do/don't permit pictures... quite often they have bits during the ceremony when they allow photos and bits when they don't, and that's at the discretion of the vicar.
At some stage I'll have to nab the ushers and give them a list of groups to herd... I can't wait until the formal group stuff is finished and I can get on with what I'm best at, the fly on the wall documentary stuff.

Nam - I want you to save that post somewhere and go back to it in a year's time when you are doing these things regularly and see how much changes
I'm sure your pictures will be superb and you'll have a lovely time.
If Cakebook are checking in today, guys have a wonderful, magical day and a very happy life together.
Thank you everyone, for all the kind words esp. Frodo, having been on the other side of the lens. That means a lot.
I do wibble a lot. I know I'll do my absolute best on the day, but I'm also sometimes filled with self-doubts. But hey, they know I'm not a pro yet and I don't have thousands of pounds worth of kit, but I'm doing this as a favour to friends, who I will of course do my very best for but who will hopefully also cut me a bit of slack...
I'm glad I'm staying the night now as I'll probably need a drink when it's all over.
It's not about the cost of the kit, it's about your empathy with the subject and being able to 'see' through the lens rather than just 'look' .... if that doesn't sound babbly.
The wedding photos you did for the little furry hobbit were stunning and you've got much more photogenic subjects this time

Thanks all I'll stop moaning now and get on with what I actually should be doing...
