Default Dan Harris memorial .. and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

Haven't been too good the last month, with the old back playing up again so yesterday was finally able to get out and shoot. Headed to see Dan HArri's memorial and heres a few pics:

1. Gloves .. someone's removed the gloves from the tree where they originally were and thrown them into the bush. The trainers/sneakers seem to have been taken ... no sign of them anywhere.



2. DAn's helmet and the flowers left for him



3. Scarf



4. Candels



5. The Velodorome.. the closet that I have got to date since they started to build this 4-5 years ago. 3 images stitched together.



6. Olympic rings .. hold on tight



7. Sunsetting over the park



Not sure how long I'm going to be able to keep hold onto the beastie and the rest of my Oly gear .. the work situation is not good...

Sorry about your back being bad mate. I know a little about that.

Still taking good pics though, I like them all in their way.

Not good news about your work situation and the idea of you having to give up on your gear. Hope it works out for you.

The backs a real pain (literally) as it has a habit of playing up.

Workwise.. situations not too good atm, I was hoping by getting the exams under my built it would make it easier to get back into a job but thats not the case.

hey Riley,

Mate I've not really looked, although I have been contacted for a few posts over on the mainland. I've had to turn those away - the money was good but what they really needed was somone that could architect a new Citrix environment for 1000s of users .. and migrate them over from old to new. That at the moment is way over my skills... I could do it for several 100s users but not that scale and make it run 24/7. May be in a year from now I could do it .. but just not right now.

So I'm back on the books.. studying for the last exam.. "Citrix Architect" .. so far its the toughest of the bunch and now that Ive got this far, I have to say it covers so many things that you must know that I'd say you have to do it ..its pretty darn essential whether you end up taking the exam or not.

I'm crossing my fingers that something shows up.

HArj

We are all rooting for you Harj. Best of luck.

(Don't know what kind of back problems you have now. But when I was younger, I suffered chronic back pain. After going thru many different medications, my doctor prescribed big 1,000mg pills of Naproxen Sodium, and within a week or so it did wonders for my back. Today they sell it in a much weaker over the counter 200mg version called "Aleve." I don't know if they sell it in England.)

LOL, Yeah, Scouse may agree with you. But in my work trips to Seattle, I only saw the sky and sun about 10% of the time.
