So after my post last night, lets start again on the road of blogging!

I am obviously not gifted in writing/English! I am dyslexic and find this all very much hard work! But after re reading all my posts  I really enjoyed the catch up so I think it best I keep at it if at all possible.

So I mentioned the good news well if you haven’t seen my flickr post check it out!

 

Yes this my wife Emma holding a positive test! Pregnant(after about 2 years trying) this was taken back in November (for the technical aspect of this blog this was taken on a new camera to this blog a 60’s Empire Junior, a bit like a Diana I suppose but made of metal. Kodak tri-x pushed to about 2 or three stops to get something of the negative. developed in Rodinal)

So yes we are very happy Emma is about 14 weeks now and suffering just about every symptom expecting mothers are subject to. We are due in June the 29th to be exact!!

Here is our 12 week scan picture

So that is my first post of hopefully a more steady stream of blogging.

So me and the missus had a day in our local city today. We had a look in the Baltic (in Gateshead of course), not massively impressed with what we saw (and heard) but we did have a nice chat with one of the guides about the complicated task of changing installations each time. This was brought on by a massive brick wall that was from the floor to the ceiling, turns out it wasn’t really a brick wall. It was more like tiles…anyway moving on. I took a few snaps when we left there (trying my hand at street photography).

We also popped into Side Photographic Gallery link, bizarrely this was the first time I have been here and I am truly glad we popped in. There is an exhibition by Lynsey Addario (Veiled rebellion: Women in Afghanistan) A terribly moving exhibition. I really encourage anyone nearby to not only support this marvelous Gallery anyway, but it would be worth your while to see these pictures and read the stories along side them. The exhibition is running until 13 October 2012, also Lynsey Addario will be talking about her work at the side gallery on Saturday 15th September, 2pm FREE entry!  http://www.lynseyaddario.com/

Anyway I will leave you with a couple of my older street shots, I hope the couple I took today come out well..still a while to finish the roll though. Bloody 35mm!(I can never finish the roll)

These were all taken on my little Olympus 35rc rangefinder(what I had with me today) and were probably shot on Ilford hp5.
