At christmas time santa came down my chimney and gave me a new camera. Therefore I’ve been making a conscious effort over the past few months to take more photos, as it’s always nice to take photos isn’t it. There are some words where needs be too.
When I look back over these photo’s it feels like I’ve done a lot, but really winter in Bangor is feeling slow now, and I want to go climbing. I went to LPT today, in the sun it felt spring like, in the shade it did not. But still, it was good you know.
