Just wanted to share this photo I took this morning when walking to the work. I dunno if the hedgehog was dead or just napping (next to the road..smart hedgehog..prolly a squishy one by now if it wasn't dead already ;p)..I just felt an urge to snap a few photos before moving on :p
And this was my view - uh - yesterday or the day before that (yes, expect a few diff. images of the same scenery from now on :p All I have to do if I see something interesting outside is to go through the large window next to the lunchroom to enter the roof..and start snapping pictures..fun :) ). The clouds were dark and grey and dull but the sun was shining through making a beautiful upside-down crown sorta shining down. Unfortunately I wasn't able to capture its entire glory in the image. Jeje. Something tells me I'll get plenty of oppoturnities to practice anyways... :p
And yeah - some observances re. work (Sorry! It's fun&new to me!!):
- Having people call me by my name is weird. I'm not entirely used to it, and am contemplating asking people to please just call me by my nickname. The longer it takes it harder it is to ask about that though.
- Same with presenting myself to people when at work - I have to remember to present myself by my name, and the entire name, and not my nickname or my first name only. (And yes, my family (apart from my mother :p) and friends all call me by my nickname)
- Despite being pretty exhausted by the end of the day I am throughoutly enjoying my newfound 8-16 life. I get do a few mistakes, learn to do and shoot different stuff and best of all - I get to work with a medium I really enjoy - photography.
- One of the journalists I've been working with the most just found out we've actually studied together (or rather, been to the same classes - way back when my oldest was a wee little baby and I attempted to study Nordic at the University..she majored in that field and when I mentioned I had studied it too she was like - ooh I knew I had seen you before - you were the one with the baby in the classes! haha :p)
- Working at a newspaper is so so so intriguing and I couldn't have found a better place to start! I am so loving every little aspect of this..... hope this feeling will last :)
- I have to say. What a difference a good lens will do!! The paper is a small, local paper and all the journalists all have their own workcameras, which I've been borrowing as there's no extra bodies atm.... so I've been trying 350D, 400D, 40D so far...all Canons..and a wide array of lenses ranging from ugh kit-lenses to the super darn heavy (but awesome) 70-200 f/2.8... and well, it basically comes down to the lens imo... it's superinteresting getting to try out different things (although the perfectionist in me prefers to use my own camera because it's the one I know best and I love my lenses and I do want to deliver good pictures when it comes to the quality of them sorta.....but it's not always possible to use my own camera due to the limitations re. my lenses..plus I really oughta learn to use the cameras available rather than relying on my own, which's....my own personal one :p It's a handy backup-camera tho :p)
Anyways. Have a lovely weekend, and send me a positive thought or two as I'm about to embark a long, long hike tomorrow and it's raining cats and dogs atm :P
