There are very few times where things fall into place, for me at least. But for the first time this year a bunch of things have worked out together. At the end of last summer I started having a look at taking a series of photos on the way we live here, in Gibraltar. Then a couple of months later, it must’ve been roughly around Christmas time I met up with my good friend Paul who told me (without me mentioning anything) that he’d been thinking I’d be interested in the architectural study he was writing; which was coincidentally pretty much what I’d been planning to take photos of. So fast forward a bunch of months and after talking to Paul a few times and doing a bit of studying in my end he sends me a copy of the completed study.

I know I’ve been lazy and have found it difficult to get through my reading list but things couldn’t have worked out better. I was finally going through the text and writing up a small list of places I wanted to focus on when a couple of weeks ago we got offered a little job at work where we would have to spend a couple of weeks going round Gibraltar handing out questionnaires. So think about it: The deal included not having to be in an office for a while, relaxed mornings and working a couple of hours in the evenings, being more active and most important of all getting a chance to familiarise myself with all the places I wanted to go photograph.

So here are a couple of test shots I took on my phone last week before I go ahead and take the real deal later on in the year; followed by putting it all nicely together with excerpts of text from the study. The timing couldn’t have been better and I’m just really excited to get on with it.

Lot of new things going on today. Here’s a new photo, and a pretty recent one at that (because some even on these last two rolls are from last Autumn), taken with my newest camera (newest purchase that is). I also started a new temporary job with/for GBC, to carry out a survey and after one day I can say my predictions were right, I love it! I get to wake up later because I don’t have to go to my office at all (which means I’m active in the morning), then I work in the afternoon/evenings, when I’d usually be inactive, I get a workout without realising (because I’m walking up and down stairs), I get to have human interaction, I don’t have to sit at a desk looking at a computer for probably the next three weeks and the best of all is I get to pet EVERYBODY’s dogs! And I must’ve petted all size of dog today, from smaller than a cat to what was pretty much a pony. 

The oldest thing today is this view in the photo. I nailed it (for how I’d imagined the photo to come out). It’s of the cricket field in Europa Point, the same spot that’s risking getting messed up with a ridiculously large stadium; we’d lose this view, that’s for sure.

Es martes, pero como si fuese viernes: sin alarma, con mucha tranquilidad y con ganas de bailar. Aquí música (dos discos buenísimos) para echarse unos bailes y unas fotos para transmitir paz.
