I don't know when I'm going to have time to shoot my remaining shots. I have about 3-4 days of solid work to do. It may come down to the wire.

Got through a big work presentation today, so have the long weekend here to get through, oh, like 15 remaining images.

I have 37 remaining images to find ... I foresee a manic weekend ahead!

I have a few waiting to go up, had a brilliant hour at sunset tonight driving about trying to get the sunset pics I wanted. Got a few good ones out of it. To be honest it was a total adrenaline rush chasing these pics - I've been thinking about one for ages, where I could take it from, what I would need to do etc. I had to abandon the car where you cannot stop, duck under barriers and climb walls, generally rake about like a proper reprobate. It was brilliant!
As for the list.... plenty to go. Work has allowed little space for anything else. Hitting the hills this weekend for a bit of meditation 3000ft up then a cold water dunk at the bottom. Glencoe looks likely. Not sure I'll find much chiarascuro there.

Karen, if you can bag 37 before we're done....wow. And Heather, I'd love to watch a video of your escapades.....sounds epic. I'll be thinking of guys while I'm packing up records all weekend for to ship overseas.

Karen it is speed shooting time. If I were you, that is providing you have time, just try to get the shots. Who cares how artful they are, just try to pull them off. That's what I would do.
I still have a couple ideas to better what I've done, just not sure I can get to it. Definitely a good exercise and I dug out some cameras today to play with next month. And.. still need pinhole for pinhole day. Dug those out too.
I don't want to offend anyone but this is a lot better, a lot more fun and a lot more productive than reading over the latest GAS inducing reviews. It's enjoying what we have.

+100 to what Kristen and Sue said.....it combats GAS when you realize you don't even have time to shoot with the camera that you already own.

Sounds like you had the kind of fun I am frequently seeking. Its such a pain to have the perfect location for a particular shot, only to find there is nowhere to pull off the road so you can actually get it. Glad you beat the odds :) When do we see the results then?

It is made less urgent I am finding. No I would not deny myself if I could just run out and get whatever, but on my budget, using what i have makes more sense. There's a difference between saying that is a nice camera setup, and looking at prices day after day to see if you can catch a sale that might persuade you to take the plunge while you juggle being able to pay bills.
