I had intended to get out and about this afternoon, at least for an hour or so, but as usual events conspired to keep me in – though in this instance the events were rather unusual. I got a phone call from American Express asking if they could check some of my recent credit card transactions with me. Anyway, to cut a long story short, it appears as though I've been the victim of a minor form of identity theft in that my card was registered at an address in London and around £800 has been spent on mobile phones. What's scary is that whoever did this must have access to at least some of my security details otherwise they wouldn't have been able to arrange the change of address. Anyway, I don't know the full details yet - the fraud team are going to ring me on Monday – but it did mean that I spent the afternoon ringing my bank and other credit card providers to check that I wasn't now living in the south of Spain hundreds of thousands of pounds in debt. Fortunately I'm not ;-)
Anyway, back to the photography: this thing/object may be immediately familiar to some people, but I hadn't seen one before, and thought it would make a good shot for this week's Photo Friday's theme – Patterns. And, in this instance, the only change that was made to the image was to colourise it.
And finally, a couple of people mentioned yesterday that they liked the writing I put up to accompany my entries. Interestingly enough chromasia is a descendent of a static blog I first started writing in May 2003, and at the time the photographs were very much an accompaniment to the text. It's interesting how things change and switch around over time :-)
