12th April 2021 was the date engraved in my mind since Christmas. According to the UK government’s advice, we were not allowed to travel outside the county for any leisure. On this day lockdown should ease out and we should be able to travel again. It was hard for everyone, but not be able to go out with my camera slowly crushed me. I waited and waited and in meantime made some plans where I want to go when the ban is lifted. Of course, I’ve booked 2 days off from work.

I really liked Barry’s book Elements, so I was looking forward to reading this one. I was regularly checking the price on Amazon UK and when I found a copy that was in a good condition and reasonably priced, I did not hesitate and bought one.

Sometimes you just need to be a bit lucky. I was this time. During my random visit to the charity shop, I’ve spotted this book on the shelf. Picked it up and had a quick scan through it. I paid £3 and took the book away with me.
