The Changing Seasons – March 2019

The Changing Seasons – March 2019

The Changing Seasons post, inspired by the lovely Sarah at Secret Art Expedition and hosted by Su at Zimmerbitch.

The month of March started with a lovely evening out with my friend Trudy and, on the way home, we were talking about how dead the town centre of Northampton is these days at night and how it used to be buzzing when we used to go out in town all the time. To which Trudy’s son Zack replied, “Well you did use to come out in town over 30 years ago!!” Thanks for that little chestnut of a reminder! πŸ˜‰ But, age is just a number – we’d still party these youngsters under the table! πŸ˜‰

I also spent an evening with my little sister! We went to her friend’s birthday meal. It’s nice to be able to do things like this while I am on my little hiatus!

I made an impromptu trip to Rotterdam and Amsterdam in March too! The light of my life left Bangkok and arrived in Rotterdam to begin his new life with his boyfriend. I took the Eurostar for the first time. It was awesome and I was very happy that I was able to take a bottle of red wine on board! πŸ˜‰

We spent the next day exploring Rotterdam.

The next day, I left for Amsterdam. I wandered around the streets with my camera before having a beer in the sunshine. It’s so lovely sitting by one of the many canals there.

I entered one of my photos into Lens Culture’s Street Photography contest. Why not enter one of yours? The deadline is 24th April! πŸ™‚

  3. What a wonderful reunion! Love your photo report from Amsterdam.
    Best of luck with the entry! I have read the rules… I am afraid I don’t ask permission when I take my street pictures. It is always a problem with these contests…

    1. It really was lovely to see my friend again! Thank you – I don’t either, those guys were unaware that I took their photo! OOPS I am not sure they have such laws in Thailand. Oh well, never mind, let’s see what happens! πŸ™‚ xx
