EXAMS!

Oh My Gosh.

At the moment, I am definitely the most stressed I have been in a long time. I haven't sent any posts for a while, because I have been so busy with my school work and things like that.

I did find time to go on a music camp though. I know, I know... band camp, and all of that... but it was actually really fun. What is odd about it though is that it is surrounded by this kind of enigma. I can't quite put my finger on it, but all of the people who run it seem to be interlinked in ways I don't understand. It is held in the grounds of this farmhouse owned by some people who just... invite a bunch of people to stay there and make music in their barn. It all sounds rather suspect to me, but it is an opportunity to eat cake twice a day and play my oboe for seven hours at at time, so I'm not complaining.

We played Elgar's Cockaigne Overture, and Sibelius;' Symphony 1. They are both wonderful pieces of music. I love Elgar with a PASSION, and the Sibelius can obly really be described as sublime.

Here are some pictures from Camp:
The top picture is of me and my friend Claire. Underneath that is a picture of the oboe section! hurrah! And the one jsut above here ^ is of the whole orchestra!!

I found an amazing person today, on Flickr. Yes, I have a flickr account too... This person's username thing is PaperNest, and I really recommend you check her stuff out. She takes lovely pictures of pretty things, and it doesn't feel pretentious at all, like some photography does.

I was going to be all clever and do linkage so you could look at her stuff, but my computer is being weird. maybe next time.
