36 hours sat in a car (otherwise known as our portable office!)…
The last three weeks have been somewhat intense, tiring, dangerous (M25 and London rush-hour) yet thought-provoking, rewarding and full of purpose. It is a privilege to be invited to work in schools, classrooms and with learners of all ages. No one day is ever the same as the one before. Different countries, different cultures, different schools, different people, different dynamics - but all united with the same purpose to make a positive difference to the learners in their care.
Life on the road has its moments. The endless possibility of taking somewhat mundane photographs of motorways…then using the Snapseed app to create 'something out of nothing'. You also become bizarrely adept at packing a small car with the entire contents of your garage…completely knowledgeable about every service station on the M25, M4, M5, M6, M74, M73, M8, M9 and M80 with an ability to recite them in order…and be able to pinpoint the location of a high number of supermarket petrol stations within a 2 mile radius of major motorways.
You also realise the importance of a smile.
(As for packing a suitcase for life on the road…that still remains a problem. I currently have Winter boots, Spring sandals and Summer flip-flops with me in Scotland.)
So - some 'mundane' photographs taken yesterday on the drive to Scotland - transformed by Snapseed and a little bit of creativity on our part. If you'd like to see more, check out our Photo Gallery page.
