Well what an emotional weekend, but one filled with memories of my grandfather one of the brave. News also that a you guy from Barnsley was killed in Afghanistan last Wednesday, so tragic, lets hope and pray it wasn’t in vain and some good comes from this.
I did the 11.11.11 shoot at Barnsley Cenotaph, there was a good crowd and the weather played fair for a change, then Jo, stormy and me went to the official Remembrance Service at the Cenotaph yesterday, very atmospheric and drizzley. couldn’t believe such a wonderful turn out of all ages, made me very proud to be from Barnsley, Yorkshire and an Englishman, everyone had tears in their eyes and lumps in their throats, such was the emotional sermon. Young lads of the TA and cadets accompanied by other brigades from the ambulance and fire marched past and were hand clapped all the way round the Town Hall. A wonderful thing to part of.
Today’s shot is titled “Remembrance”. It doesn’t have to be about a military remembrance it can be any loved one you miss. When I took this shot staring deep into the brilliance of the sunrise I thanked my mum who died 10 years ago for giving me her eye for composition, I wish she could have seen what I have achieved now.
I have also tagged some music for all those 80’s lovers out there, it was one of my favourites, if you go to the bottom of the blog there are controls you can turn it on or off from there. It’s the extended version of Cutting Crews ” died in your arms tonight”, turn it up loud and enjoy.
Starting my diet and training today, 5:45am did my cross training with Stormy staring at me for treats to be thrown to her, think she like me training, then we did our morning walky and its off to the gym for a light session at 10am , hopefully my back will hold up ok……..
Have a great Monday and week
