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


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.


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…
