What do I do?

I bumped into an ex-colleague from my lecturing days today.  That doesn't happen as often as one might think in a small place like The Liberties - mostly I guess 'cos when I'm out and about my ex-colleagues aren't...they're still doing something important. Indeed. But today it happened.  He said the usual stuff that people who are still working say to those who aren't - told me I was looking well and asked how many years I was out of it (3...I think).  Thankfully he didn't ask me what I'm doing with myself these days.

I mean, what can I truthfully answer to that?  What have I done in 3 years?

I took this photograph - that's one thing I did. And then I scanned it so I could post it here for your delectation.  You see, I didn't even enter the Dark Place and print it on some nice paper.  I'm pretty sure it's not worth printing, mind you - nothing's in focus, it's all low contrast, grey and horrible.  Like the weather in it.  It's not going to win any awards.  But then again, awards aren't all their cracked up to be, right?

  1. And not only did you take this photograph... you had a few others snapped as well, I would think?
    I would say you have done a few other things as well, even though it's not regarded as payed work :)
    Great sky and lovely terrain in that photo, btw. You should bring it into the darkroom and give it a go! There's a few of us liking the grey weather, you see.
