Beer Glasses

A bad snap taken while I was sitting outside the pub last week. Just saw these sunglasses stuck in a bush with a beer glass underneath. A bit odd, I thought. It was only when I looked at the pic on the computer that I noticed the strange person in the background who seemed to be wearing a pink cond...

The Wrong Place

Thanks to the Met I completely missed the Royals coming out of St Paul's at today's service to commemorate Waterloo. I asked a friendly-looking policeman which way the cars would be going but he said he couldn't tell me because of the something-or-other Act. A complete fabrication, but what can you...

More Equipment Required

Oh no, a new lens is tugging at my purse strings. I've become a bit weary of doing just street photography lately and feel I need a long zoom so that I can have a go at wildlife perhaps. Or maybe I just want to aquire some new equipment. :) Anyway, after my trip to Kensington Gardens yesterday, w...

Photo London

WOW! What a show! The most amazing collection of current and historic photo images gathered together in the wonderful galleries of Somerset House. I've never been to such an amazing and vast number of galleries showing images from way in the past to bang up-to-date works. Just walking around par...

Highest in the UK

To celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary, hubs and me went to the Duck and Waffle at the top of the Heron Tower yesterday. It's the highest restaurant in the UK (40th floor) and the views over London are fab. In the 2nd picture, on the right at the bottom you can just see a tiny Tower Bridge. It ...

Two Visits

Last week I went to Somerset House to see the Sony World Photography winners. Brilliant exhibition and very nicely laid out. Very aspirational. It's said that we're supposed to look at lots of other people's work to learn from it but when they're pictures from all over the world they always look s...

Frankie Moves House

Hiya, been away quite a while doing "life" - a few ups and downs, but now I have a new interest. My first photos for months too. Our beautiful Gracie died quite suddenly about a month ago and the house was so empty without her. Well, timing couldn't be better, if you want to look at i...

2015 Not Turning Out Too Well

Had to take our little Gracie to the vet today. She'd got into a fight and we though she had concussion and her back legs were very wobbly indeed. Anyway, turns out her back is Ok and she's just a pulled muscle or something, but after tests they found she had diabietes and possible kidney failure. ...

Sorry to Say

Just when I thought everything was going well, our next door neighbours on the other side were burgled, but even more upsetting, the old man next to them went missing on Sunday night and hasn't been seen since. Really worried. And just read Lexi's post and feel even sadder. I hate this world at the ...

Goodbye Darling Dylan

A sad day. Dylan, after many years of service for the RDA, had to be put down yesterday. He had a bad leg and general illnesses that made it difficult for him to carry on and he was looking very poorly by the end. He was the most beautiful and gentlest of horses and I'll miss his so much.

A nice day out

Well, I've had a super day today. The last few weeks have been very stressful and I've not been out anywhere. But today it chucked it down with rain and the builders knocked off early in the morning. Oh joy! I got a bargain coat in the sales up in London and bought a dress!!!!!!! I know - horror - ...

Unable

I've not taken a photo for about two months. It's been non-stop, one-thing-or-another, and it'll be at least another 2 or 3 weeks until I'm able to get out and about again. January and February are usually my most disliked months anyway, but this year we've had builders in constantly it seems, first...

A Difficult Task

Following on from the robbery last week, me and the OH gave statements, various photos and footprint casts were taken and a few further very odd things were found in our garden. All very interesting - not - I've had enough now. Yesterday we had to view some mugshots for ID at the police station bu...

Five cameras and no use at all

Next door just had a robbery and I saw the thief jump over into our garden and run off over the next fence. I ran out and shouted at him and he dropped his loot but by the time I got my camera ready he'd got away. Bums! Just when you need a quick shot too. So, an exciting and worrying start to the ...

What better thing to do on a cold, wet day than to make my first visit to the photography exhibitions at the Science Museum in London. Shame about the hoards of brats, but it's still school holiday time. Never mind, they didn't go anywhere near the Media Space where currently running is an exhibiti...
