Never mind the thermometer, it's time to get the Sinex out. I felt okay this morning. I even went over to check up on Cathie and take her her newspapers before wandering down to Magdalen Green and then along the Riverside to the bookshop. I left the house knowing exactly what I wanted to photograph. I was to be disappointed, however, as there was nowhere near as much snow down at the river as there was where I live. Best laid plans, and all that. Anyway, I took a few photos of the Magdalen Green bandstand and the rail bridge before nipping into the supermarket cafe for an all day breakfast and a read at Digital Photography. Duly fed and caffeined-up to brave the bitter wind coming in off the Tay, I set off for the bookshop to finally spend the gift vouchers that have been burning a hole in my pocket since Christmas. I treated myself to Henri Cartier-Bresson's book 'Europeans'. There are some awesome photographs in this book, which hopefully I will be able to learn from. You never know... stranger things have happened!!! Back to the tale. I felt great while I was walking about this morning. As soon as I got back into the house, I started to feel awful: my nose is blocked and running, my eyes are sore and I have a headache. I don't think this is the flu, though, because I don't have a temperature. Just a cold, but I wish it would go away.
