This evening around 4.30 p.m. Already getting dark.
The only good thing about Christmas being over is that after 21st December days keep getting longer again.
I got the perfect gift for Christmas – a brand new prime portrait lens. What is more, my friend posed for me and she is a natural talent!
Christmas tree lit with hundred lights, great lens, photogenic model – what more do you need?
[For the first photo the camera’s in-build flash was diffused through a yellow napkin.]
This recipe was recommended to me by a friend and I do trust her blindly when it comes food. The stilton and pear would seem an unusual combination but they complement each other perfectly in the tart. Yummm! Recipe can be found on Helen Graves’s website.
From my own observations:
1) do add port or wine when frying the shallots;
2) tart tastes even better on the next day!
The concert was on 3rd December and it was very exciting. I had not managed to get the tickets until two days beforehand – I was very happy I could go. I like his songs – perhaps they are not mind-blowing but it’s still a piece of good pop music.
He started with the song Save yourself and played a few other songs from the most recent album.
Oh, and his granny is from Glasgow. And that called for Once when I was little.
He played my favourite You make it real somewhere in the middle of the show and I could see I was not the only one who liked it but at least I did not squeel, squick and scream!
The public went really crazy when he sung Broken strings.
Encore was a must. He did the best cover of Jackson’s Man in the mirror I’ve heard. And then he played a few more songs. Yay!
