I took this photo on Sunday after my Croc shots; playing around with DOF field/aperture again.
Yesterday P, myself and a a group of friends from the Corner went to the FOCUS photography exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham. We had a really great day! From the first to last it was a really successful and enjoyable time - just a happy day in congenial company. We wandered around looking at the displays and chatting. I met a couple of people I'd only ever encountered online before and they were really nice. The day just flew by. We all spent some money and made a really exciting purchase ( must have had a rush of blood to the head!)
In contrast today was a work day. 35 parents and 37 babies attended Baby Bounce and it was hard work today. They were all chatting and two babies were screaming and I was hoarse trying to make myself heard over the din. Everyone is really appreciative though, which makes it worthwhile.We are becoming the victims of our own success however as the space we hold it in is now over-full and still new people keep coming. Am going to have to think about how I go forward with this.
The day ended badly for me; we spotted a guy accessing porn in our upstairs PC suite. Our software enables us to observe machines remotely and we do random checks all the time. He'd been warned for the same thing yesterday by my colleague. When I went to ask him to stop he at first denied it, then became abusive. We killed his connection and I walked away. He followed me downstairs; threw his library card at me and continued the abuse. Eventually he left but by then I was very shaken. It's hard not to be upset when you're being called a fat, ugly c*&t repeatedly as well as other things. His final shot was "you're an ugly woman; a really ugly woman" as he walked out the door. Stupidly, I was struggling not to cry.
