This morning’s picture is one of those reasons why my morning walk around the same circuit is never boring. I had been stood at the end of the Haslar Marina Pier Wall doing my weather report to the #Breakfastclub and I could see what was coming. You never know of course which way it’s going to go. It may peter out, or fit may turn in to something spectacular.
I hope you will forgive me for returning to an old topic. You know when you have one of those “Hang on a second” moments, well I’ve just had one. A problem that I have had (I don’t know why) is that I have been reluctant to get out and do outside videos. Once again it’s because I have been worrying about what people will think when they see me talking to the camera. Haven’t we been here before? Me taking photos in ways that might be thought a bit weird if seen – I’m not even sure if that’s an issue.
Then of course, there is the amateur radio. I often see people when I’m talking. Sometimes, they will stop and ask what I am doing and I love that – I mean it, I love that. I really enjoy talking about that hobby. Then this afternoon, I watched a YouTube clip about how acclimatise yourself to Vlogging in public – just treat it like making a phone call. Whereas in 1991 when I was in Berlin with my voice recorder and I was the only person on the street talking to myself, which I just could not do because I thought it was weird, let alone what everybody else thought. Today this is perfectly normal.
Why shouldn’t I enjoy doing this in the same way I enjoy being seen with my radio, I like talking to people about it. People that see me doing this might come and talk, and want to be involved. You never know. I’ll let you know how I get on.
