365.332 – Passport

365.332 - Passport

Day Three Hundred Thirty Two: November 9th, 2007.

I booked it!

I waited for the right time and wound up with a nearly perfect deal.

It’s time to dust off that passport – I’m going back to the U.K. again for a visit in March 2008.

After three trips to London last year and a lot of drama that followed each one, I needed to take a break this year and not put myself in an unhealthy situation.

Time heals all things, right?

Let’s hope so.

I’m ready to go back and will be doing things quite differently this time. At the most, I might spend one night in London or just a day there exploring but I’ll be staying in Tunbridge Wells this time to visit a good friend.

I’ve got a hotel reserved and it’s going to take me 3 months to save up to pay for it! So I may not be taking any other trips until then but that’s okay.

I’m looking forward to exploring more of the English countryside and already I’m compiling a long list of things to do and places to see.

Having something big to look forward to will make winter in Duluth a little more tolerable.

There’s only one thing that I’m struggling with. I haven’t told a certain person about this trip and I don’t know if I should. It’s a complicated situation and it’s hard to know what to do. We’re getting along so well now as friends that I don’t want to rock the boat. No pun intended. I just don’t want her to feel hurt if I’m not able to see her this time. And if I’m not able to see her, should I even tell her that I’m coming?

Hard to know what to do.

Time Waits For None, Big Ben, London: II

Time waits for none ….This is the 2nd upload of this series. All the time we hear this quote and here I’m standing infront of the beautiful embodiment of time, the passing speeding cars, people reminded me of this pharase…..indeed Time waits for none……

The shot
This is an HDR after a long time, the image was sitting in my computer, and I never thought I would process it….don’t know why…..tonight I gave a chance….

This was a long exposure to catch the moving traffic
