Thursday Thoughts

It’s been a busy week, and mostly I’ve been thinking about going away tomorrow.  It’s my son’s birthday on Saturday, and he and his lady, Charlotte, wanted to go away to Amsterdam for a few days, but couldn’t find anyone prepared to dogsit for them. In desperation he rang and asked me, so off I’m…

Friday Film Shots

Here is the 2nd half of the pictures I took at Little Haven Beach, I’ve photographed The Weebles many times, but you can always find a different way to do them The sun was going down so I wandered back to the car park, shot a thistle and watched the sun sink behind a bank…

Thursday Thoughts

This week I have been thinking about moles. Not the one’s that live underground, but the brown, raised bits of skin that some people have lots of, and some people don’t.  I only have four, had them all my life and they’ve never changed in appearance or done anything weird.  Last week I discovered a…

Monday Mobile Moments

Yet more rain today, and quite heavy at times. I was at work this morning and periodically Brenda and I take Billy the dog for a walk around the block, but we got caught in a downpour without coats on one of the walks so made a dash for the car while it passed, Billy…

Friday Film Shot

A couple of weeks ago I took the Rollei off to Little Haven beach to see if I could overcome the loading problems I’d had with the camera in my previous outing. Luckily all seems well now and I got 10 out of 12 decent shots, so up to 83% postable shots! 🙂 Due to…

Thursday Thoughts

Well the rain finally stopped this afternoon, and then started again, and stopped again, but the sky is grey & boring.  This weeks thoughts have been mostly about the weather, and I’ve been doing more than I’ve been thinking :).  My mosaic tiger is getting there slowly Tomorrow Phil’s niece Lorraine and her hubby Paul…

British Summer Time

It was my day off today and really hoped to go out with the rollei, but we had a day of incessant rain, again.  Still, I was determined to do some photography, so invented a waterproof housing for the fuji (a freezer bag and cat collar) attached it to my trusty tripod, donned my waterproof…

Still waiting for my roll of film from the rollei to come back, patience is not my thing really! So back to the SX70 for today though really there isn’t enough light with the ongoing cloud and rainy stuff. Supposed to be better tomorrow so hopefully out with the Fuji and my pal Sophie. Anyway…

Thursday Thoughts

My first thought is when is the rain going to stop!?  Two weeks ago I was sweltering in 33 degrees and now for the past 4 days we’ve had incessant rain and 13 degrees tops. Sigh. I am worried my cauliflowers will perish in the deluge.  I need to get a heater for the shed,…
