365:46 D-day

365:46 D-dayPlaying with both the low-light capability of the 6D and also my new Tamron lens.

46 seemed to offer little inspiration today, though I was keen to use a [url=http://www.rsc.org/periodic-table/element/46/palladium]Palladium (Pd)[/url]tone, if I could (I failed in that mission)

This Day in History proved more interesting. It was Decimalisation day in 1971. I remember it well because the date was the 15th February, and that’s a memorable date for me.

Oddly enough, my first attempt at a shot today hinged on my finding the OS map for Teesdale, the cover features a shot of the house where I was living in 1969/70. I met my First True Love (TM) when I was living there and the connection was based on the fact that I still, after all these years, remember his birthday each year… on the 15th February.

The map is, like that love, long-lost, so I settled for coinage.

On the 15th February, 1971, we swapped the new 1 P for 2 and a bit old d’s. Oh look, Pd again. Shame I couldn’t add the tint.

I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
