I have just been accepted onto the 'Fine Art Photography' course at the Glasgow School of Art.
With a reputed odds of 9 to 1 against, a miracle has occurred and someone, somewhere has lost any sense of, well, sense, and given me a place! So now my ideas will have to be bucked up a little, which sucks, but then, i won't have to go and find a real job for another four years, that is, if i ever find a 'real' job!
My pessimistic self has been having a field day over the last couple of months, but now he has been silenced, at least for the time being, and the new task of finding out how i am going to survive over the coming years should really begin... I am still maintaining my stance as an anti-student, i don't have anything against students, of course not, most of my friends are students, i just like saying, 'Bloody Students', every time something money related is being talked about, i shall simply continue in my current status as a financially deprived member of the community.
Aside from this remarkable forthcoming, I still hate my digital camera, I've still taken no decent photos with it for a long time. Instead I am continuing to love the Mamyia. It is my friend. Most of my recent uploads have been taken by it, it's hard to explain, it's just nicer. I feel more attached to any photographs it produces, not quite sure why, perhaps because it takes so damn long to do anything with them? Time is a luxury. My recently visited location, the ruined cottage, which is lovely, requires another visit, the end product could have been a lot better, the best one is certainly 5.10am, i rather like the colour shift, but the exposure could have been better....
Either way, all of this will have to wait, for i am off on my travels in search of more benches, firstly to Glasgow, and the to Leeds, where I will be also seeing a man, about a van. What fun!
