Belligerent and numerous. I feel like I was mauled by Jesus. Dear God, they’ll be killed on our doorstep! And there’s no trash pickup until January 3rd. I’m sure those windmills will keep them cool. Switzerland is small and neutral! We are more like Germany, ambitious and misunderstood!

Oh yeah, good luck with that. Ask her how her day was. A true inspiration for the children.

You won’t have time for sleeping, soldier, not with all the bed making you’ll be doing. That’s the ONLY thing about being a slave. When I was first asked to make a film about my nephew, Hubert Farnsworth, I thought “Why should I?” Then later, Leela made the film. But if I did make it, you can bet there would have been more topless women on motorcycles. Roll film! With a warning label this big, you know they gotta be fun!

Bender, we’re trying our best. Hey, tell me something. You’ve got all this money. How come you always dress like you’re doing your laundry? Your best is an idiot! No! The cat shelter’s on to me. A sexy mistake. Would you censor the Venus de Venus just because you can see her spewers?

We’ll need to have a look inside you with [pulls out a long cord with a camera lens at the end] this camera. If rubbin’ frozen dirt in your crotch is wrong, hey I don’t wanna be right. Oh, how awful. Did he at least die painlessly? …To shreds, you say. Well, how is his wife holding up? …To shreds, you say.

I am not a photoshop kinda guy! I try my hardest to get the photograph done in camera and edit some blemishes but that is it. The last few days I have struggled to capture the photograph I wanted! Sort of writers block but for a photographer!

I have uploaded the following two photographs to see how bad the original was and how much photo editing I had to do and it is still not great! It’s not that I suck at Photoshop I just just feel I want to share the view I have seen. I admire people who can take a simple image and airbrush it to hell!! Is it cheating? or is it creative input? hmm.. I don;t know. I feel there is to much airbrushing going in to portraits and does not portray natural beauty.

Try and keep a photograph as natural as possible! You are beautiful and you do not need airbrushing to make you look like a Barbie doll, that is just ugly!

Thursday 18th February 2010.

Been a rubbish day! I feel rubbish!! I have been given the flu (man) by four different people!! THANK YOU… Was meant to be working in Starbucks today but swapped my shift so I can have a day off and rest! That is what I did.  Stayed the night in Oldmeldrum and had the best sleep in weeks.  Was out like a light.  Woke up about 9.30am which has been the latest in a while.

Cooked up in the house and was driving me mad so I packed my camera and headed out for a drive.
My drive took me to Speybay, Speyside.  I have been here before but the photographs did not turn out so great.  I only really came here for a walk and get some fresh air and think… Such a stunning sunset.

Also made my way to Elgin.  Was job hunting and checking out the area.  After speaking to Jemma I have decided I need to move to Elgin.  We just don’t get any time with each other at the weekends so the only way we can work things out is if I move to Elgin and we spend our time together during the week and she spend her time with her family and friends at the weekend.  So I spent the day in Elgin,  I have fallen in love with the area but unfortunately very little jobs.  So had a look around for photographers and there is not to many.  So going to send out my portfolio and look for assistant jobs, also applied for a Media sales jobs for a paper and look to maybe get a photo Journalist job.

90% of all my photographs I have taken alone but sometimes I wish I had someone sharing these experiences. Someone to take in the stunning views or to take photographs along with me (but then I would get jealous if they produce better photos).
I really needed the chill time.  Also stopped for a coffee and took the time to Job hunt and decide if I want/can move to another city!

Thought a lot about why I got in to photography and where I want to go with it.  I think I know and sent some emails… I will give more detail when I know what is going on.

Well I am off to sleep, Working 3-7pm in Starbucks and then 10-1am in Orchid.

Taken from Speybay looking over to Kingston, Morayshire Scotland.

Hope! One can only hope that things will turn out the way they should. You try not get your hopes up but sometimes you can help it!

Just keep wishing, loving and work hard for you deserve!

When we last had snow you couldn’t keep me in doors, I was outside every spare minute I had photographing but this year I have no passion to photograph the winter snow and this is disturbing me.

Today’s photograph was taken at 12.30am on Wednesday 23-12-2009. This is the rear end of Soul bar & Casino, Aberdeen.
Developed in HDR (High Dynamic Range) and this is the first time I have made an done HDR.
The red sky is the effect of light pollution on low clouds from the street lights of Aberdeen.

A strong word! A strong feeling! A strong emotion.

I have had a few girlfriends in the last 10 years but nothing like the one I just had.

I can’t go in to much detail or the relationship because that would not be fair on the person. I want to writ about my thoughts and feelings.

I was the best boyfriend in the last 5 years in fact I don’t think I have ever been the best boyfriend. I have been described as cold hearted and emotionless. This is not 100% untrue. I stuggle with emotion and feelings some time, especially with someone I care about.

I am still very much hurting from my last relationship and I feel I deserve this hurt! I was never violent and we very early had fights ( well she would say we did but I would say it was a heated discution 🙂 ).

I had everything any guy could have wanted in a relationship. A woman who was kind, caring, intelagent, passionate and loving. She put me first more time than she should and was always there when I needed.

You see my problem is I get something good and then feel I don’t deserve it and destroy what I had.

I find it hard to open up so I bottle everything up ( although some people would say I show feelings very well, this is true but not all my feelings) Untill I exploed. This has happened many times and has been very unfair.

I have not made life very easy for my self and very often my choices in life Have been very unstabe and challenging.
This has caused me to change into someone I’m not. I block out everything important to me and become very selfish.

You can only push someone so far till they crack and that is what I did. I ended my relationship one to may times and as a result I lost everything! I lost the only security in my life, the one person (apart from family) I could depend on and trust.

I orginally ended your relationship because of my insecruty and lack of faith my myself but if I had just stopped and listened to the one person I would have realised that she cared for me no matter what! She didn’t are about what job I did, she didn’t want to be shown off or popular. All she cared about was that we were together and happy. Unfortunatly I was blind and did not see….
And was to late to turn back.

Because of my actions, becase of my blindness I lost someone amazing.

After realising I had made the biggest mistake in my life I then realised that I could have spent the rest of my life with this person.

Because of my actions and the emotions I put the person throw I changed her but some people would say for the best. She became more stronger and more independent and I am glad but u fortunatly I also change the love she had for me.

I dread the day I find out she is with somoeone else but I also know that he would be very lucky.

But for now I have to deal with my feelings and own emotions. Anyone who has loved and lost knows the pain but also knows that one day it will subside. Right now I go throw the parinoia and jelouse but this is normal. It is also something I deserve for the many times I have caused this on her.
I am a strong beilever in Karma. What goes around comes around and I deserve everything I get.

Dream sweet & One day love will come around.
