Recce Day

When I was going to Scotland recently, I bumped into a friend that I hadn’t seen for a long time. As the flight was delayed, it gave us ample opportunity to catch up. Along with landscape gardening, (and bass playing, which is how I know him), he has started to breed horse. He’s graciously allowing me to shoot down there tomorrow, so today will be spent getting a look around hopefully.

I’ve sent in video to on Lightroom and will be adding to that over the next while. More details as I get them. Jay, the video guy, says he can edit them no problem, so that’s a relief!

I’m in the middle of writing a new web plugin for Lightroom. While it shares some of the codebase with LRB Portfolio, it has a different enough look to be a lot of work. The way the HTML works is very different. I’m also trying out new things that are not really covered well in the Lightroom SDK. I’ve run up against lots of little niggles along the way as I make it fit together. Of course it’ll be even worse once I start testing the final version with Internet Explorer ;)

I’ve just changed accountants. Not the best thing to be doing in May, when the first VAT return is due. The main reason wasn’t competency, it was simple lack of communication. I never knew where my business stood, or how I could improve it. As it turns out, I’ve known the new accountant for years. He also works as a videographer. You might think that someone doing two jobs might not be a good choice? Well I know that he understands the nature of my business, and that’s a big plus that easily outweighs that concern.

Anyhow, back to the grindstone.
