Today was the first time in about a month when I had time at work to “breathe”. For many industries, October/November is a time when people start to wind down. But in the industry in which I work, it’s quite a busy time, with planning and negotiation around summer leave (24×7 requirements), and as contract negotiation for the following year is finalised. There will be more busy activity over the next week or so, and so it’s not over yet. But today, for the first time in what seems like forever, I actually had some “thinking time”. I also had some time tonight to review some interesting/”random” photographs from the last few weeks, and have shared them with you here today.
