Monday Links For The Week …

Hello everyone … hope you are all having a lovely sunshine filled Monday … the weather here is starting to ramp up … its really lovely first thing in the morning at around 30C but becomes abit too much by the afternoon … other than that we had a rather low key weekend at home … ran a few errands and I caught up with a friend for her birthday …

In other news I saw someone posting this picture on Facebook and for one thing I didn’t even know this book was causing issues in the US … and secondly it really shows what is wrong with people’s priorities when it comes to gun control …

  6. IS PHOTOGRAPHY A HOBBY OR A PROFESSION ? … another info-graphic for you all … and interesting examples of the difference between the two sides … I always wanted to be a professional photographer and I still do … but I came to the realisation some time ago that I was enjoying what I was doing as a hobbyist for now … and doing photography jobs as and when they come up … for now this suits me … in the future I would love to give the whole professional thing a go …
