out in the midday sun | 3

You’re an expatriate. You’ve lost touch with the soil. You get precious. Fake European standards have ruined you. You drink yourself to death. You become obsessed with sex. You spend all your time talking, not working. You are an expatriate, see? You hang around cafes.
― Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises

Funny how Hemingway summed up the dreams and aspirations of a group of young teenage boys who set forth on a European adventure. Perfectly.

We didn’t get that drunk, mostly sticking to orange, exotic, Fanta in deliciously heavy brown glass bottles. Oh, and ok, the occasional beer. We were young, I was only thirteen. And being thirteen in the Summer of 1975 was a world away from being so in 2016.

project 365 | mobile | mono | skies | two

I launched my latest Project 365 on Monday 13 June 2016 by posting a single photo each day to my Instagram account and to my Flickr account. I posted my first weekly update (late) on Saturday 25 June 2016.

I will post an update each Sunday and you can see them all by clicking here.

Watch the skies!

project 365 | mobile | mono | skies | one

I launched my original Project 365 on Sunday, 14 June 2015 and I completed it on Sunday, 12 June 2016, one year later – maybe I should have made it Project 366 given that in 2016 February had 29 days. It has been an interesting year, much has changed during this year, including me.

You can see all my images in my mobile | mono | square album on Flickr (although I must confess that account needs tidying up as not all the photos are there yet).

You can also review each of the weekly updates, that I posted each Sunday, by clicking here.

And I’m not done yet, my new project mobile | mono | skies kicked off on Monday 13 June 2016, as with my previous project I will post an update here each Sunday.

strawberry fields

Nothing I write here could say any more than the lyrics. Obviously.

So, I won’t.
