Ive been editing photos this afternoon and decided to trawl back through some photos in my archives. This is what I love most and why I love scrap booking - just recollecting the days gone by. I took this one last week and although Blackpool along with many seaside resorts, has its faults, it also has its hidden beauties - like this pier shot taken at dusk. Im so happy with the composotion and lighting in this and the memory of it will draw back many memories of our happy day last week. Mark and I plan to take more weekedn breaks after the next run of scrap events have taken place. Ellie fancies a trip to the National History museum for her 11th Birthday, so a trip to London is in order. I can't believe Ellie has never been to London, looking back.I also retouched this photo. there was a gap between mark and ellie which needed to be cloned out and although you can't see it, Belle was freaking right out being held onto the promenade railings. Cruel maybe, memories always.
This weekend sees both Ellie and I on our ownsome lonesome. I hate it when mark works away. Weekends, although sacred, are often busy whether I teach away, go to events or just plain cropping. Normally its for one day so we do actually spend some time together. But not this weekend - its heartbreaking especially as I need Mark right now. Isnt it always the way? Nothing that a bottle of Malbec and a good weepy DVD won't cure though. And perhaps a bit of scrapping.
