Still a long way to go with re-reading, correcting and re-writing. Poppy and Adam, as I’ve posted during the past couple of days, have now had three days out together – the Lakes, his cottage and the island off the coast of Anglesey. Each has met and dined with the parents of the other and Poppy has read the riot act to Adam. All’s still well though and the Valentine’s Day bouquet from him probably helped.
Their relationship now matures as they become more involved in the lives of others in their families. Janet, his brother’s partner, gives birth to a baby boy. Adam and Poppy are together at a celebration at Neil’s house the following night. While they’re there, Janet interrogates Poppy about her feelings for Adam, worried in case he should get hurt again as when his first wife dumped him.
Poppy and her sister, Sandra spend two Saturdays shopping ready for Sandra’s wedding to Chris. On each of these two days, Poppy is quizzed about her relationship with Adam.
Following on from these two occasions, Janet’s baby is baptised – cue for a party, then Sandra marries Chris. At the reception afterwards, Adam and Poppy’s sister find themselves sat at a table together. Sandra, an accomplished interviewer, turns her skills upon Adam trying to discover his intentions towards Poppy – matrimony-wise. He extricates himself diplomatically.
As I promised , the featured photograph to accompany this post is a black and white conversion of the one at Liverpool’s Canning Dock that I used yesterday. The EXIF data are the same: A tripod mounted Pentax K-1 camera; a 15-30 mm f/2.8 lens. Shutter speed 30 secs, f/16, 30 mm, ISO 100.
