Hope you had a good weekend.
Yesterday I drove to Bath with my Buddy Dave Clayton to finalise the route and a few other odds n’ sods for this coming Saturday’s Worldwide Photo Walk. On that note if you’re one of the group joining me, keep an eye on the official page [Link] over the coming days with more details.
Today though I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to the wonderful people of Scotland that I met when I was in Ayr last Thursday evening to give a seminar to the Ayr Photographic Society and folks from all over the West of Scotland.
The evening event was all organised by two gents I’m honoured to have met and able to call friends: Edmund Telford and Graham Taylor.
I was originally contacted a few months back by Graham to see if I would fly up to Scotland and do a seminar and after lots of phone calls and emails the event was full steam ahead.
The friendship, warm, and hospitality was quite overwhelming but in true Scottish form. I had such a blast and we sure had a great turnout for the evening and it was so clear seeing how much work, time and effort had gone into getting the event all set up and for it to run so smoothly on the night.
It was wonderful to see and meet so many people at the seminar and also afterwards at the social. Honestly…since returning home I’ve thought about you all so much and can’t wait to see you again.
I was completely bowled over by the gifts: one being a drawing by attendee Ruairidh and the other a traditional Scottish Cup of Friendship called a Quaich from the Photographic Society with the words “Haste Ye Back” inscribed.
There’s so much I could write but I think you all know how I feel; Scotland holds a very special place in my heart.
I can’t thank everyone enough for making it such a special time and I’ll be sure to raise a glass of the good stuff to you!
