Contuinuing on from this post i wanted to move it forward.  I still don’t what I’m gonna do about a serialisation of this. At the moment i have too much to think about with other stuff going on so I’ll just give you a teaser:

I just love how the background or foreground can get so blown out. I find it so so beautiful.

My irrational distaste for @DOMINICMONAGHAN

I’m sure Dominic Monaghan is aa lovely chap but i do have an irrational distaste for him which is probably unfair and not a very good thing for me to admit but I’m only human. We all have things that annoy us in life it’s just that Dom has been heavily featuring on my list.

  • Is it the fact that in LOTR he is just plain annoying?
  • Is it the fact that he has 3 middle names?
  • Is it the fact that he was actually quite good in Flash Forward?
  • Is it the fact that he is actually very cool in Eminem’s new video (below)?
  • Is it the fact that i really can’t find a super dorky photo of him to post here?
  • Is it the fact that my wife had a crush on him for years and years and years but found him to be a bit of a washout when she finally got to meet him at a meet & greet session at ComicCon the day before I proposed to her? (Bless he was probably knackered)

I don’t know…

I do know it’s irrational….

I do know it’s silly…

I do know that holding grudges is bad form and bad for your health and mind and a total waste of time and helps no-one and isn’t helpful….

So Dom – I commend you dude! Well done for being a brilliant actor and having great success. I pray that you will continue to do so and that you’ll know God in your heart.

Some of you will be wondering what on earth that tile means and i will do my best to explain:  I’m thinking of setting myself another challenge/series to do with taking some better photos.

My Photo of the day has been going really well so far with only a handfull of missed days but I notice that occassionally the photos are a bit crap. I guess it’s easy to spot the days i’m being less creative. The other side of this is wantiing to use my SLR more. I’ve got a great lil camera that my wife bought me and it doesn’t get enough use.

So what i plan to do is use my prime lens that goes down to a f-stop of 1.7 which means that I can great depth of field which means the focus gets blown out in the background which means cool photos!!!!

I’m not sure how it’s gonna pan out but watch this space!!!
