Share your world – 20th April 2022

I’ve just come back from a short trip away, then a nice long quiet weekend, so I am still hyped on feel-good vibes!! Of course, I am now madly trying to play catch-up on everything 🙂

Still, I figured I grab a quick break and a cuppa and write this week’s SYW

QUESTIONS:

In your opinion, what do you buy way more of than most people? Oh well, this is easy, probably props and costumes. Some might have thought camera gear, but I honestly don’t buy THAT much gear, my stuff is a few years old now. But still life props and costumes for the studio…well that is ANOTHER matter entirely. Even on our trip, I purchased some vintage glass bottles – I haven’t even had time to photograph them yet.

Which workers have the worst jobs? Ones they hate. I think that there are some truly horrible jobs out there, but I am sure some people like them. I hate housework but I recently met a gentleman who cleans houses for a living and says he enjoys it as it gives him time to think. Vets would be great in helping animals, but I know they spend more time than they wish helping them to die peacefully – that would break my heart, over and over. I could never work with palliative care patients (same reason, break my heart), I would hate to clean up tagging graffiti, such a senseless job, they just do it again and again.

Opinion. John Cage is a composer who composed a piece named 4’33” for any instrument. The performers are instructed not to play their instrument for four minutes and thirty-three seconds. Is this music or is this art?  A combination of the two?  Neither, it’s stupid. Your opinion? I think it’s kind of dumb. Really it’s nothing, a cry for attention. Do something ridiculous and then get attention for it. See we are giving it attention even now, lol

How good are you at drawing? I am average, I used to be better, but then I drew and painted all the time, I have not really drawn or painted anything in years. I prefer the camera and PC.


GRATITUDE:

Feel free to share one amazing thing you’ve experienced. Honestly, it’s hard to pick one. We’ve just come back from a lovely week away, but nothing amazing as such. But we were discussing an amazing event and hoping for a repeat. A few years back we were on Kangaroo Island and found this echidna walking across the road. In my adult life I have only even seen a couple in the wild, they’re pretty shy. So to spend some time walking with it, capturing it, was amazing.

We have had a few weeks of lovely weather, but now it has turned cold and wet, I guess Summer/Autumn really is over, now we head into Winter. Whatever you do, have a lovely week, keep warm and dry…
