public speaking...

is so not my thing. I talk quickly as it is and I know I can sometimes run words into another. If I can concentrate carefully I can slow it down and articulate the words properly. I do really watch people's faces when I speak to them. If they get that furrowed look on their brow or that blank expression in their eyes, I stop, take a deep breath and say 'Let me start again". Its a conscious effort to slow down and doesn't come naturally. ( A bit like my life I guess).

So its with a bit of trepidation that I've said yes to speak to a Photography class at our local school. Their teacher invited me as a 'contempary photographer in the community'. PMSL. That sounds so bloody official doesn't it. I feel very flattered to be asked and I'm not really sure what I'll talk about yet... and I've only got to Tuesday to figure that out.
