Happy Birthday, Allan!

 

Colorful? And now colourful. So why do I feel so drab? 🤔

Congratulations, happy birthday Alan.

 

Doing anything to celebrate?

 

If wasn't for Covid you could have shot the annual Asylum Steam Punk Festival at the month end. This year it's moved to Newark, but back to Lincoln next year.

Not doing anything to celebrate. I gave that up 6 years ago. They have been having a 40,s weekend in August in Lincoln where people dress up in 1940 style dress with some in wartime gear and lots of related things to see and do but it was cancelled last year and it is not happening this year either. I did manage to get some photos from the 2019 production and posted them on Alamy.

 

Must admit I did not know about the ASP festival though.  It is amazing what you can learn from this forum.

Happy Birthday Allan!  My good thing today is that one of the regional magazines I work with on a regular basis, has just raised their photo use rates by close to 15%!  I have gotten so use to stagnant or dropping fees in photography, that this came as a nice surprise! For my non editorial work, I have been trying to increase my fees some but not so easy when so many practically give their work away.

Happy belated birthday wishes to a fellow Leo Allan, hope you had a fabulous day and many more happy birthdays to come😄

 

Carol

 

Thank you very much Carol. You know the funny thing is my wife was a Leo too and they say two Leos should not marry due to conflict. We had the best time together.

Ah that's great to know Allan, I wasn't so lucky years ago with an ex Leo he had all the good traits except the Loyalty one🤨 but it was interesting....until it wasn't.....

We had a great day in Legoland, Windsor, on Sunday and then stopped at Reading Motorway Services as we were heading back to Bristol, on the M4, for a well earned Burger King. As we were leaving the services my daughter picked up a wallet someone had dropped in the exit foyer. There was nowhere to hand it in so we decided to take it with us and make a few enquiries ourselves to see if we could get it back to its owner. 

 

Using the power of the internet, by the time we’d travelled a few miles up the road, using a name from the wallet, Linkedin and Facebook Messenger, my daughter, Jo, had managed to contact the guy who has lost the wallet and agreed to meet him at Membury, the next services stop on the motorway. He’d gone back to Reading, having realised his wallet was missing, so we had a 20 minute wait for him to catch us up. I used the time to wander around the services area and grab the shot below for a stock upload. The wallets owner was extremely relieved to get his wallet and credit cards back. His reaction and gratitude made the short wait we had well worthwhile and I came away with a shot I’d never have taken that I was really pleased with…

Something similar happened to me a while ago: finding a wallet in the street. The contents didn't reveal a phone number, but a few minutes Googling was all I needed. The guy was very happy to be reunited with his wallet, and it gave me a kick to do the 'detective work'...

A nice story and a nice ending!  And a great life lesson for your daughter!  Doing what you would hope others do if they found your wallet, phone etc....  My daughter seemed to be a magnet for lost wallets and credit cards and loved to reunite them with the owners....everyone feels good in the end.
