Today marks my first day creating a blog post on my iPhone. Impressive, the may not be, but since I have had the technology for a while and never explored how to do this, I find making note of my new, small achievement not too silly, or perhaps overly silly. Those of you who know me are probably well aware that technology is not a strong suit of mine, but that like a monkey even I do well following a clear demonstration. Today is also my first morning in Dublin, Ireland. Friday I departed Boston for Scotland and knowin I had a morning shoot upon arrival, one which was to have me out in the cold waterfalls of the countryside, I drank a cup of wine, read a short while and endeavors to sleep immediately in the plane. I have a knack for falling asleep anywhere (although only when intentional)so I fared alright. During my quick layover in Amsterfam and that flight, I continued to try to snooze. When my plane landed and throughout the day I was practically my normal self - assisted by a bit of coffee, but that is my norm anyway. Graeme the photographer who came to collect me was remarkably great as tour guide and brought me to a lovely, isolated place outside of Glascow where I relished in the mossy ground, lush greens, and enjoyed the sight of a couple of black slugs (new to me). Although we did not have the heat wave present the previous week in Scotland, weather cooperated and the day was good. Then onwards to Edinburgh I went... I must get ready for my shoot, as I'm under the impression blog writing is not an adequate reason for tardiness to a commitment. :) Suffice to say, I'm safe, happy and well, and I made it past the border (which was actually rather difficult and felt like a full on interrogation).
