10/365, originally uploaded by ChrisSinn.

I learnt a valuable lesson today – always make sure you read instructions properly!

The day had started off in a bit of a rush – getting out to the Flickrmeet at 12 o’clock should really have been no problem, but I had to wash my hair.

(For those wondering what on earth I’m on about, a Flickrmeet is where groups of photographers, in this case in the Birmingham area, meet up and take photos of a particular local (un)attraction/area/theme – a different topic/place each month.)

After that I then couldn’t find a parking space in town, and then , to top it off, I turned up at the wrong coffee shop in Birmingham – not really very good. Maybe I should have read the postings a bit more thoroughly.

Fortunately it all came good in the end, and I managed to catch up with the group at the library, but unfortunately only after I’d complicated things further by getting a couple of bags of shopping on the way – it’s not particularly easy taking photos with a plastic bag in one hand, but I think I managed just about.

Today’s photo is of Gormley’s Iron:Man, in Victoria Square, Birmingham – it was a close contest between this and this one of Paradise Forum, but I thought the snowy theme fitted in well with the general mood of the day, and in some ways, this is what the project is all about – not only new and experimental, but also recording a year in pictures.

Back to work tomorrow, so that’s the end of daylight (!) photos for the moment – although as I’ve said before, there is always Lidl!

’til tomorrow.

  1. Not sure about them today.

  2. Oh no! Disaster! That’s the second less than positive reaction from the photos – it’s all downhill from here it seems 😉

    It is the beauty of the flickrmeet though, pushing you outside your normal comfort zone – I don’t normally ‘do’ concrete, but I actually quite like them.
