I see this guy most mornings. I have his name on an older blog post but can’t remember/find it. We always stop for a chat and he rests on his stick and his Labrador sits respectfully by.He asked me today If i could help his Daughter and Granddaughter out with a new camera they have got. Sounds like it’s a large expensive digital SLR. They have no idea how to use it and would like a photography lesson. I say no problem, but a part of me is wondering, I am so busy at the moment how will i fit in another favour for people I haven’t even met. I like the guy though, and one day when I don’t have him to talk to on my morning dog walk I will take comfort in the fact I once did him a favour. He then goes on to tell me that it may be better to get it done sometime in the coming week. His Granddaughter would really like to take some photos of her Mother before she has to go in to have treatment for a third tumour in her head. I am glad I said yes without thinking as suddenly I feel it’s as important for me to show them how to use their camera, as it is for them to take photographs.
