22/10/2016. Guildford City v North Greenford United. Guildford City Celebrate scoring and Substituted (due to pulled hamstring) Captain Darryl SIAW joins the celebrations from the dressing room.

A photograph taken during one of Guildford City FCs games last week seems to gone a bit wild.  The Guildford City Captain, Darryl Siaw was substituted having pulled a hamstring during the game & had an early shower after the team came out for the second half of the match, however in the opening minutes City scored, so Darryl legged it from the shower to join in the celebrations, however, he seem to have forgotten to grab a towel.

Anyway the photograph has been tweeted & re-tweeted so often I have lost count.  But there are a few noticeable landings including:

I could have done without that, the car started making a knocking noise on Christmas Eve, so cancelled the jobs in the diary, rescheduled some, and farmed out another, and parked the car up until I could get to the workshop. Picked the car up yesterday, Yay all good, could have done without the £400 bill (admittedly I did get them to give it a full service as well) for replacing the Near-Side Drive shaft. Strange that it had given no tell-tale creaks or knocks on full lock, just catastrophically failed on Christmas Eve. Anyway all good & back to work next week.

New Phone Time

Had the iPhone 6S for a while now & seeing as EE were doing a deal with the iPhone Xs with 100gb of data for the price of 30gb it seemed a no brainer, Now I just have to go through the hassle of moving everything across & learning a new iOS & phone.

First attempt to update the iOS resulted in it bricking the phone, eventually persuaded it to update, now have restored the data back to it and all up and running.

Whilst I was looking for my copy of “My way with a camera”, I found my old Canon Lens Work book printed in 1981. From memory they were released in fairly small numbers, I received mine from J.J. Silber who were the Canon importers at the time, I think it was when I ordered my first Canon F1n in about 1983.

As it is the season of giving, I just gave myself a present, I already have “My Way with a Camera: Adventures and Lessons of a Career in Photography” by Victor, I saw “Naff Off! for £3.00 and had to have it.

Nostalgia isn’t as good as it used to be, I remember reading Victors column in the Amateur Photographer Magazine back in the late 1970s & early 80s, along with Ron Spillman.

 

Oh and Merry Christmas
