On doubting myself

Hello there! How was your week? I hope you haven’t been as busy as I have! Today I want to tell you about what I was up to yesterday… My friends were performing at The Underbelly in Hoxton Square. They had asked me to take photos of the gig, so they could use them on their Facebook page and website – Halloween Jack. I of course said yes, of course! and started fretting about the quality of the photos and how difficult it was going to be to take pictures in a dark venue, and wouldn’t it be better if they asked another one of our friends, since he had already taken photos of them and they actually looked good… Even when I seized the opportunity, I didn’t think it was awesome and that it would be a piece of cake. I thought it was awesome, but also that it was going to be a disaster and I was going to be a failure. When I told people around me that I was worried about …

Paris Part I – Pere Lachaise

In my last post, I promised you some photos from my latest trip. The photos I took during my ski trip aren’t that good, so I’m afraid there’s not much to share. Unfortunately, I was using an old point-and-shoot camera (I didn’t want to break my DSLR if I fell down) and for some reason, many of the pictures appear blurred, even in broad daylight! Hopefully, once I get round to work on the video I’ll be able to show you something. So, these below are photos of Paris. However, since I took like a million pictures (might or might not be exaggerating a bit), and I’ve spent most of my Saturday afternoon and evening editing, and I’m still not finished, I’ve decided to share them in installments. Therefore, this is Paris Part I – Pere Lachaise. If you know me, you’ll know that I love cemeteries. As I said in my previous post, Pere Lachaise is one of my favourite places in the world, or at least, the world I know so far. There …

A trick of three notes

This week has been an interesting one. As you know, I kick-started the training session, which left me achy for the whole week. It serves me right, though, maybe next time I won’t leave it for as long. Still, it was good aches, the right kind. Work was very busy, but I enjoyed the week. Some projects I had been working on for ages were put on hold, but other that came unexpectedly came out quite right, so I’m happy about the overall outcome. I’m also finding I like designing logos more and more! On Wednesday, my team and I finally had our Christmas team outing. We had decided to postpone it, since we didn’t have much time before the holidays. Our boss had kept it secret, so we had no idea what we were going to do, or where! It was quite exciting, I must say, although I was worried I wasn’t going to like it. I tried, however, to keep an open mind (read be quietly judgmental if it wasn’t to my liking). …

Photos from Christmas

I started the New Year in the best way I could: ill. It probably has something to do with the terrible weather we’re having in London these days, and also the fact that I hadn’t taken any vitamin C for the past couple of weeks. That, added to the high alcohol intake, has probably resulted in my immune system being a bit weak. Silver linings, and all that though… I’m indoors, keeping warm, which means that once it’s only a matter of a sore throat and all the headaches are gone, I could catch up with some photography I’ve done during the holidays, and post it and all that. Of course, it also meant that I missed what was supposed to be my first run of the year on Friday, and some shopping I wanted to do, but I’m keeping positive. I’ll see how I feel and maybe will go running tomorrow… Let’s cross some fingers! When I logged in today, I had a notification congratulating me in my 2 year anniversary since I first …
