Well, I've been busy, as you can see, since I haven't written in a few weeks! This month has been a photography month, with a little writing thrown in for good measure. I finally completed "Renaissance Woman" and have sent it off to be critiqued for now. It will need some re-writes! The egrets on the Spit are still haunting me, so I've been back at least 6 times to gather more photo knowledge.
Two weeks ago our photography group met at Sunnyside park for a special shoot. 7 models dressed as brides all posed for us at sunset. We shot til we dropped, and some of the results you can see on my photo page. The practice was excellent for preparing for wedding photography season! Always so much to do and so much to learn!
My pilates teacher training is now complete, and I'm ready and capable to teach private or small group pilates classes now!
July is the height of Homestay season, and the house repairs and preparations are taking more time than I'd like, but that's always the way as things get busy. 9 students will be visiting us this season, learning English, as well as bachelorhood! By August I shall be ready for a holiday!
Speaking of holidays, this year's photography group travel experience will be in January 2011. We are going as a small group to Egypt, cruise down the Nile, and then a short added trip to Kenya to do a little safari adventure. This will be another trip of a lifetime, perhaps on par with South America!
I'm looking forward to showing you the photos when we return!
Cheers, and, until next time,
Hilary Slater: I write in the morning before I get out of bed. I write in the evening when the world is quiet. I write at Starbucks, where I can escape the household interruptions. But most of all I write in November, when NaNoWriMo inspires me!
