Switching to a Mac - Part 3

It's been about a month since I got my new iMac up and running (see earlier posts) and about time I updated on progress. Shortly after my last entry I calibrated the display with a Spyder Pro. The display was fairly good out of the box, but calibration did improve contrast and very slightly cool ...

Switching to a Mac - Part 2

In my last post I outlined my decision to switch to an iMac 24 inch after many years of using a PC. Well, the iMac arrived a week ago today (in fact it would have been delivered the previous day had I been in). Unfortunately, because of other commitments I didn't have sufficient time to do anyth...

Switching to a Mac - Part 1

I've just started the process of switching from a PC to a Mac. I've been a PC user for many years now both at home and prior to my retirement 2 years ago, so this is a major step for me and I thought others might be interested in my experiences. It all started around 18 months ago when I had a...

False Alarm - Good News!!!

Ten days ago, I had a bit of a health scare and suffered symptoms that pointed to the fact I may have had a TIA (mini-stroke). As I'd had a minor stroke some 3 years ago there were obvious concerns. As a result, I've not been able to drive for the last 10 days and of course our planned trip to...

Selling kit on Ebay....

I've been away from this site for a while because the time I'm able to devote to photography has been swallowed up during the last 3 or 4 weeks selling photographic kit on Ebay. About 18 months ago I inherited my father photographic gear consisting of a full darkroom, a Mamiyaflex TLR system, a M...

We're in the process of planning a trip to Australia in mid January. We're going for a month and will be based with my Sister-in-law and her family in the Melbourne suburbs. We last visited them in 2007, so it will be good to see them again and to do some of the things we missed out on last ti...

It's been a while....

It's been a while since I last wrote something here. Not because I didn't want to, but just because I haven't had the time, having been heavily involved in DIY work at my son's house and supporting my elderly mum who had a fall a few weeks ago. Most of the DIY is finished now and mum has more or l...

A Year In Yorkshire....

Twelve months ago today we moved to West Yorkshire from the other side of the Pennines and I thought this might be a good time to reflect on our first year in Yorkshire and muse on the ups and downs of the last year. Both my wife, Jean, and I are recently retired and we were both looking forward ...

It's been a while since my last Blog entry because we've been so busy during the last 2 or 3 weeks so there has been only limited time for photography and, sadly for contributions to this site. However, I have managed to find time to complete a project that I conceived when we moved to a new hous...

We visited the YSP yesterday with my 4 year old grand daughter. What a woderful place it is. Lots of open spaces filled with interesting scuptures and sheep (and their poo!) I took a compact with me, but as you can imagine, with a 4 year old in tow (or perhaps we were in tow!!) there was little...

To Blog Or Not To Blog.....

Been thinking for a while that I ought to start a blog on here, but typical of me, I kept thinking about it and not getting on with it! So here goes... Today's a typical "family sunday" with my son and grand daughter here, so little time for photography, although I have managed to uplo...
