Last weekend proved to be a bit of a right off. On both Saturday and Sunday the weather was pretty awful. We had snow for a while, but it disappeared before I could take some pictures that I wanted to, but I’m not sure the light was ever really good enough because either the sky was heavy with snow or it was raining, there seemed to be no time in between. I think Amber had the right idea being curled up somewhere warm and cosy.
This week has mostly been about product photography. I’ve taken quite a lot of product pictures. I’m glad I have a good stock of backdrops in because one job needed doing fast and I didn’t get a chance to buy the backdrop I had planned to use for the shots. A blogger’s life can be a busy one when you need to drop everything to buy a product and take some pictures before the light fades for the day.
I did manage a couple of catch ups with friends this week. I went to visit one friend at her house, but with the other I tried out a new cafe on the local high street. Our high street has been in a poor state in recent years, partly for the same reasons as other local high streets, but also because a long row of the shops were owned by a firm that were in receivership. Very few businesses remained on this stretch and there seemed to be no new businesses coming in. Over the last few weeks though there have been a few new openings, including a new coffee shop. I’m not sure we really needed another cafe as there are several, but it is the only one in this stretch of the high street. It was nice enough, but a bit pricey – it always annoys me when you get charged a high price for a fairly ordinary tea. They did nice cake though and that didn’t seem so expensive.
