Another Year Older
It's been a bittersweet day today as it's my first birthday without Mum. I thought of her often throughout the day, about how she always made me a cake and how she never failed to find a card with lovely words, but never gushy. As I sat in the Albert Hall this evening at the BBC Proms I thought how much she would have enjoyed hearing the BBC Concert Orchestra.
My evening out was a lovely birthday treat from my friend Debbie who has 'introduced' me to the talented musician and lyricist Tim Minchin, who compered tonight's show. I'd never heard of him until a couple of months ago and then googled him to see what he was all about. I'm glad I did because while we were hanging around outside before the show I recognised the eccentric looking Aussie and quickly papped him.
The above shots were captured on my point and press camera (haven't got myself a DSLR yet) as were these I took yesterday when I had a mooch around Ditchling, a lovely Sussex village.
So no cards to share today, just a few snaps as my enthusiasm for photography grows. Hope I haven't bored the pants off you!
Thanks for looking.
