Hey, hows is everyone? How you’re well!
Life after my 365 has been crazy, so busy I feel like I haven’t got time to catch my breath, let alone take photographs.
The thing is, life has a funny way of filling itself up, and much like financial circumstances, I feel we live to our means in terms of time, too.
If we’re not careful, time can slip away like the grains of sand in an hour glass. It’s one of the inescapable truths of life; our time is precious, and we need to all make sure we make the most of every single grain of sand!
We went to visit the new Sun Centre at Rhyl recently, to take the girls swimming and see what the newly built venue was all about.
Locally, Rhyl Sun Centre was a bit of a “thing” for my generation; pretty much everyone went there at some point as a youngster, and beyond.
Since then it’s had a £14m make over, and whilst it’s very different from the venue I remember from some 25 years ago, it’s great and the girls absolutely loved it!
After our swim, I grabbed literally 20mins on the all but deserted sandy beach, in some very stormy January weather, and took a few images. I really wanted to capture the unique mood the wind swept sands were portraying, and the multitude of tones and textures in the sand itself.
A nice day out all round, the Sun Centre was a hit, and I’m pleased with the images I captured.
I mentioned at the end of 2019 I was going to devote more time to family this year, and whilst I have done that through less photography, I seem to have replaced it with crazy amounts of work!
I need to address that – what was it Rudyard Kipling said?
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!
I just need to make sure I’m filling those minutes with the right stuff.
