"When we get to Glasgow I'll do this." And, "When we get to Glasgow I'll do that." But let's not kid ourselves, we could be stuck (as John Cooper Clarke had it,) in fucking Chickentown for several months yet whilst the complex machine that is buying/selling/mortgaging flats during a double dip recession grinds so slowly round.

So tonight, I've just said, ('scuse the French), "Fuck it", I'm not waiting for Glasgow's charms to start taking photos again, I'm going to keep on snapping, with the Android, with the Nikon, with whatever the fuck comes to hand, and put them all, good, bad or indifferent, in a set on Flickr, (which, BTW, deadens the soul almost as much as Saltcoats - but that's another story).

There's something therapeutic, life-affirming, not to say just plain bracing, about deciding on a project.  To put it another way, you can live-for-the-moment if you're going to photograph the bugger.
