To college or not to college


This year I began a level 2 photography course in my local college, it has been one night a week since September and tonight I have to hand in my final piece for printing for the end of year show. I then have a week to complete my portfolio and that will be the end of it. Have to say I am going to miss it and the challenges that I got every week preparing work for it. I am seriously considering doing a HND in Photography come September, the only thing putting me of it is the amount of written work that goes with it. I would love all the photographic side of things and learning how to develop my own photos but having to write about the quality of 40 types of photographic paper just doesn't do it for me.

I have about 4 weeks to decide what to do before my entry papers need to be in and for the life of me I can't decide. Then I think I should go ahead and apply and maybe they'll not accept me or my portfolio of work.

Have you went onto further education as a mature student? Did you enjoy it? Did you find the work easy? Would you do it again?

Would love to hear from any one out there who has been down this road.

Happy St Patrick's Day

To all my friends and family here and abroad, Greetings from Ireland,

May God grant you always...
A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you.

I have been glued to my television and news feeds watching with a heavy heart the devastation that has hit Japan. May God bless Japan and all those affected by this disaster. I am heartbroken, I take such things to heart. Please pray for them ...
