A new start

Today, I decided that Greg needed a girlfriend to tide him over until Katie becomes free at last to recognise his qualities as her one-and-only. Alison is a wedding planner. They meet at a wedding. Greg has never met a wedding planner before. He thought that she was a guest. They exchange business cards and arrange to meet for coffee. The meeting gives rise to a date, and soon she is helping him to photograph Katie’s staff doing the hairstyles for the upcoming competition.

Afterwards, before they leave, they sit and talk to Katie who is now five months pregnant. She asks them about their relationship. It’s going so well that they’d like to rent a house together but can’t really afford it. Katie has a brainwave. (I was struggling to help them until she did.) She and Geoff are living in the flat above the salon, but the flat won’t be big enough for them and the baby so they were waiting to move into a new house on an estate nearby. This means that the flat will be empty. They could rent it from her. The rent would help her and Geoff with their mortgage. (Serendipity or what!!)

In the meantime, the three of them, Greg, Alison and Katie have recognised the synergy of their businesses. They can cross-refer each other’s clients. Alison will get the early warning of a deal with a prospective bride and groom, she’ll recommend Greg and Katie as photographer and hairstylist respectively and everybody will be happy. Meanwhile Greg and Alison look as if they’ll be living happily ever after. What did John Lennon say about plans? ‘Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans’ or something. Wait and see.

Today’s featured photograph is of the South Stack Lighthouse on Holy Island, off the North coast of Anglesey, North Wales, UK. I took this shot two years ago with my old Pentax K-50 16 MP crop sensor camera using its 18-55 mm f/3.5 to 5.6 kit lens at 18 mm and f/11. The ISO was 100 and the shutter speed 1/125 secs.
