You have to wonder exactly just what is going on in the world these days after the ISIS terrorist bombing in Paris last week and the Russian passenger jet blown up over Sinai a few weeks previously. Also alarmingly the governmental responses from around the globe and general public opinion makes me wonder if people will ever learn or really care about each other.
Whether you’re on one side or the other it seems people, countries are obsessed only by money and power. It maybe the most beautiful thing in the world but the only thing that seems to matter is how much it cost. Allsorts of groups, companies, governments and individuals have personal agendas that it seems impossible that people will ever live together in perfect harmony.
I’ve almost hit rock bottom and recently have had to start delivering leaflets to make ends meet. Its hard work to be honest for a man with dodgy knees,but with no money at all coming in I feel I’ve little choice.This week the weathers be allsorts, Wednesday was windy warm and mainly dry, Thursday overcast miserable and wet while Friday was fresh, cool but sunny. Saturday they forecast snow 😆.
Once again you get to see how the other half live at both ends of the spectrum, a bit like being behind the counter of the shop I used to run and co own for many years. Some houses are posh one had two Bentleys in the drive of a modest bungalow. Others had nice gardens, while others were terribly untidy and overgrown with all kinds of rubbish.
Many drives had no front gardens replaced by paving others were muddy and overgrown while some even had artificial turf. For a city supposedly admired by the press Chelmsford has little style with houses crammed into every space and on more than one occasion I became confused as to where I actually was as so many houses looked exactly the same with very little individual flair.
Individuality or lack of it is something I’ve rallied about for sometime now as many people just want to be the same as each other. For my part I try with my photography to express my own likes and dislikes. At the same time I try not to copy anyone else’s style or subjects but go with the flow and shoot what I see. With naturism and politics I try to stick to my own ideals and beliefs too while I’m always open to listening to other peoples ideas and beliefs.
