ip dip sky blue

I find this shade of blue quite delicious. Is that strange to think of a colour as delicious? I know that I can't eat it, but there is something so wonderful about the pureness and smoothness of this blue that makes it seem fitting to describe it as delicious, no?

Having left school a bit earlier than normal today, I got to enjoy the sky gently giving way to darkness and arrived home while the blue was still holding its own before the dark of night came to settle over us. So, I resolved as I drove to try and capture the blueness of the blue with a little help from my tripod, which has been a much neglected piece of equipment, I am ashamed to say. It served me ever so well, despite my neglect, and I had forgotten how brilliantly lightweight it is. I think I should try and use it more often.

I feel like I should apologise for the lack of diversity in my posts lately. I am well aware that I have done a lot of talking about the sky and not a lot else. This is partly because my days are fully occupied with driving to school, admiring the sky, teaching some lessons which you probably don't want to hear about, then driving home, admiring the sky, and spending the rest of my evening planning more lessons. 

Suffice to say, there is not a whole lot of excitement in my life right now. Please bear with me during this slightly dull phase - I am sure it will get more exciting. In the meantime, if there is anything you would like to see happening when you pop by this space, whoever you may be, please let me know - I'd love to hear from you.
