So I’m starting a poll…Is the world ready for Leemo? AKA Liane Hoare. 27 year old freelance photographer, writer and all round awesome human being is ready to unleash herself on the world. California should be warned that Leemo means business and is ready to make something of her life. And all this before she reaches 30. It’s make or break time. Make something of said life and break ties with the UK and all that is in there, except for friends and family. Nothing to hold her back and everything going for her.
After getting up at 6am this morning to catch the 7.10 train to London Victoria I was disapointed with the rain as it was coming down like cats and dogs. So you could say I thought today would be a complete washout. Got on the mini bus at the coach station and it rained non stop all the way to Salisbury. We parked up outside Stonehenge and the sun came out. No blue skies but it had stopped raining. Dave the mini bus driver gave us an hour to walk around there so we could take photos, buy souvenirs etc. Poor guy was trying to keep everyone entertained but I was the only English person on the tour so no one would talk to him except for me. They didn’t understand him cursing the other drivers on the road but I found it funny. Got some pictures walking round the pile of rocks that is Stonehenge, sky looks a little washed out so think may have to salvage them in Photoshop later…if I knew where to begin that is! Apart from the panorama of canary wharf all the other photos I take are unedited…eau de naturelle you could say, and as 90% of the 8 people on today’s excursion would say as they were French. It was a good day out though and I’m now sat on the train to go back to caterham to pick up my printer from my aunt’s that I sold on amazon. 50 more quid to put in my California fund! So before the battery dies on my iPhone as it’s flashing red lights at me now I’ll say cheerio. I’ll upload the finished pics later on today when I get back to Merstham. In the meantime here’s one I took on my phone earlier.
So I was in Croydon today after seeing the latest Jackie Chan film in the cinema. Yeah, I know that The Spy Next Door is one of those “family” films but it’s Jackie Chan and it was so funny!
Anyway, back on subject. So I was walking down towards Argos and was walking past XElectrical when something caught my eye. Inside there was this beautiful blue electro acoustic guitar made by Ashton and I fell in love with it straight away. I went inside and it had to be mine so after a but of bartering with the shopkeeper I got him down to 95 quid which is a bargain when you hear how awesome it sounds. I’m in no way a guitar hero as I’m only just starting out but I can play the basic chords and the whole of REM’s Everybody Hurts from start to end. And to be fair I only picked up Alan’s guitar two months ago and borrowed it for one week. Now I have my own and thanks to the Gibson iPhone app it’s sorting me out no end. Plus this heavenly guitar has it’s own built in tuner as well. Bonus! I’m very happy with my purchase as I’m starting to string sounds together that actually fit in with some of my poetry. In My Defence is one I’m working on at the moment. Now all I need is a little recording studio. So, I write and take photos and now I’m making music. I love my life! Now if only I can get paid for doing the things I love. Anyway, I’m gonna catch up with Monday’s Flash Forward on five on demand and get an early night as Stonehenge is waiting for me and Canon la DSLR bright and early tomorrow morning. Pictures to follow tomorrow night. Until then I bid you farewell. Adios Amigos, Auf Weidersein, Au Revoir, Adieu, Ciao!
This time I actually do mean new as well as I wrote it less than five minutes ago. Can be found under the Poems header and called Nothing to Hold Me Back.
More pics uploaded to the blog under the obvious Photos header.
Please feel free to comment… Bare in mind though that none of these are new photos as I’ve been too busy lately to get any new night ones. I’m off to stone henge Saturday though so depending what time I get back and providing the weather doesn’t let me down then I will endevour to get some.
Well, I say “new” poems added…they are infact a good few years old but have been dusted off and uploaded onto the blog in the Poems Page. Please feel free to comment on any of them…go on, I can take it…
So I’ve just installed the iPhone app on my phone and taking advantage of it to write my first blog post before I leave to go to work as my job as warehouse manager for patrol store/NSI. But as everyone who knows me knows that I’m working only for emigrating to California. I wish I could say I’ve looked into it properly and know exactly what to do but the truth is…I don’t have a bloody clue where to start! Still, I have my goal, my focus and my dream, which one day will be a reality no matter what I have to do to make it so.
These blog posts will basically be about how I’m progressing etc. The pages are for my photos and poems so please feel free to peruse and comment at your leisure. I do have a website going as well but it’s a complete pain in the ass to update so as this is so easy I think the blog will be the way forward. You never know, some poor soul may come across this, realise my potential and take pity on my lol. For the record though, I do write stories as well…if that helps 😉
Anyway, work beckons and this was only meant to be a test so adios amigos and I hope to see you again soon.
