I seem to have gathered a few more LJ friends into the fold in the past couple of weeks and I am a bit behind in finding and dedicating photographs. I'm sorry that this is a bit of a bulk post but it did seem the best way to get a little more up to date.
This is a young woman who comes from my home area. We actually don't live very far apart. She shares a love of Glastonbury with me, and several of my other LJ friends, and has a burning desire to actually live there. We both live close to Glastonbury but actually living there would be so cool. Apart from that we have several other things in common too, so I'm sure we'll get along just fine.
The picture I am dedicating to you is probably very predictable, but I hope I chose a different enough approach to it for it to still be interesting. I give you a little peak at the Tor, early morning on an autumn day.
I have to confess to not knowing very much about my next new friend. I know that we have some important interests in common, writing, photography and travel, to mention three, and I know that she has combined those things to post some great LJ entries. Her photographs of China are stunning and she chooses a very interesting approach to her photography, preferring to concentrate on detail rather than the bigger picture (sorry about the pun).
For you I have chosen a picture of one of my favourite spots in my home county of Somerset, Ashton Windmill. It was built in the 1770s and is one of the very few remaining windmills in Somerset.
This is another friend of Ilmera who, I am delighted and touched to say, also wants to be friends with me. She is a fascinating person. She is married to a composer, musician and designer and is herself a writer, both of poetry and children's stories. She comes from Rostov-on-Don in the Russian Federation. She wants to travel, but just to experience new places for a short time, gather her thoughts and 'recharge her batteries'.
The picture I have decided to dedicate to you is very important to me. You will be able to tell that from my user icon. I live fairly close to Stonehenge and have a fascination with it that goes back as long as I can remember. I took this picture, along with the icon one, earlier this year when I was showing some very special friends around the south of England. I give you my favourite view of Stonehenge.
So, it is with great pleasure that I welcome these three new friends to my LJ world. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better and to reading your journals. Should be good.
