Monday Mobile Moments

I was clearing out my iPhone album this weekend to free up some space, and was struck by how many photo’s of signs I’ve taken in the past few years. SO I thought I’d share a few here and entitle my post The Signs Of (my) Life Which one’s your fave?   Have a good…

Friday Film Shot

Last weekend Sophie and I went to track down some not very well known ruins, Cresswell Hall, of which little is left other than the stables and part of the colonnade, and afterwards we went to Druridge Bay which had a vintage car fair on. Full reports on The Universe blog to come.  Still having…

Thursday Thoughts

This week I have been seeing, and reading, a lot about the Charlottesville debacle.  It is so disturbing, and what strikes me is that it now appears more ‘mainstream’ to be such a thing, no masks, no white pointy hats down to the shoulders, full face frontal hatred and bigotry on display.  This is not…

Monday Movie Moment

Having a change from Monday Mobile moments to drop in the odd movie now and then.  Saturday night is movie night here and Phil and I take it in turns to choose the movie we watch.  Due to our being underwhelmed with the new Dunkirk movie – see review HERE– Phil wanted to redress the…

Film Friday

Another SNAFU roll this week. I took the rollei down south with me and used it when we visited The Swiss Gardens at SHuttleworth. Only 7 postable shots, and not that great, thank god I had the fuji with me! 🙂    

Thursday Thoughts.

A sad tale today people.  Regular readers will know that on a trip to Poland to visit Eddy, I was inspired to start growing vegetables, so had a herd of cauliflower & broccoli seeds and some seed potatoes. Out of 50 odd Broccoli seeds only one grew, but did OK, and nearly 100 cauliflowers seeds…

Monday Mobile Moment

Today I’m reviewing a new app for iPhone, iPad and Mac, though it will be available for android too in the fullness of time.  The app is called Plotagraph, and it animates photographs, where you want them to be animated.  Firstly the pro version for this for Mac users is bonkersly expensive, at a monthly…

Friday Film Shot

The second half of my roll taken out and about in my ‘hood. I went to the disused railway nearby, a couple of years ago in 2015 I took this shot from the same place but now Mother Nature has had her way I’ve spent ages in photoshop adding overlays of haze and sun flare…

Thursday Thoughts

Phil and I went to the pictures on Sunday afternoon, a rarity indeed, but we really wanted to see the Dunkirk movie on the big screen.  It was different, in that most of the characters were nameless, and the whole thing was an ensemble of pieces shot in different time scales.  The beach part was…

Across the Pond~7~ July

About ‘Across the Pond’ HERE The end of the month and today it co-incides with Mobile Monday, so it’s a 2fer! This months theme was ‘people~black & white shot’, and Kathy took herself off to a bar, whilst I went to the shops!  🙂  

Friday Film Shot

with a little bit of Thursday thoughts thrown in as I missed doing that yesterday.  I got home from my 5 nights away at my son’s flat dog sitting Lola.  It was a strange experience, it’s a long long time since I had a dog.  She is a nice dog, I walked her twice a…

Monday Mobile Moments

I’m currently dog sitting for my lad, down south. Had a lovely walk up the River Iver with my mate Helen. Full report to come on the Universe blog at some stage, but here’s a couple from the iphone to be going on with. Rained most of the time but sunnier weather on the way…
