I fell out of love with Instagram a bit this year. I still post every now and then, but the removal of the map feature, plus annoying tweaks to its algorithms really annoyed me. I think if I’m going to keep using it in 2018 I’ll need something to give me a push, maybe a challenge or something? I
have been thinking about having a go at #100happydays. We’ll see, I guess.
Anyway, in spite of this I did manage a few shots I was pleased with – here’s my favourite post from each month of 2018:
I’d just finished reading Rebecca, which I’d really enjoyed, and pulled out my box of Postcards By Penguin to snap a shot of it.
I hadn’t expected us to do anything for Valentine’s Day because we were both really busy, but when I came home P had filled the house with roses.
I’d been ask to give a talk to the new graduate students joining the Centre for Doctoral Training, I was promised transport there and back and so I said yes, not realising it would be at Loch Tay, or that this was the view I’d be greeted with then I stepped off the bus.
P’s ister decided to have her Hen Do at Luss onLoch Lomond. We had a speedboat pub crawl on a day that looked like this. It instantly cured my hanover from the night before.
In in May P and I visited Dubrovnik. I think this speaks for itself.
I graduated with my PhD in June with this bunch of nerd back in June. The same bunch of nerds I graduated with when we collected our MSci degrees in 2012.
In July I started working in Edinburgh. Edinburgh’s ok, I guess.
Since my new job was as a trainee patent attorney I had lots of excuses for lunches that looked like this.
During our trip to Mnich for Octoberfest (yes, in September), we took a break from swilling steins of beer to visit The Munich Residence.
By October it the days were already short enough for it to be dark when I left for work and dark when I got home.
November, on the other hand, brought some gorgeous sunrises.
This photo was taken right before we went int the Hydro to see Mogwai. It also won us access to a VIP area. Not bad.
