    Lest We Forget

    We visited the magnificent exhibition at Leigh Parish Church. Here are a selection of images I made, shot on the Pentax K-1 with HD Pentax-D FA 28-105mm WR lens. The pictures can speak for themselves.

    RHS Bridgewater - A Grand Tour

    RHS Bridgewater is very much a work in progress, turning what was the Worsley New Hall estate, and later Worsley Hall Garden Centre, into a huge RHS Garden. We have always been fascinated to see the hidden parts of the estate, so when the new project...

    While the Cat's Away

    Cheeky black cat from down the road settling down in my bay tree pot. Mind you, I think the bay tree's had it so he's welcome. He was very comfy. :) Frankie got his results today and although it's quite serious, it's not lymphoma, and the situat...

    The North Yorkshire Moors Railway offers lots of potential for photography. Love all that steam and, of course, all the vintage settings and rolling stock. It's a huge playground and our toy trains are full size! So here's a selection of images shot ...

    Remembrance Tribute

    Hi everyone, I've just been shopping near to a small village called Sileby (near Leicester). I noticed some single dinner plate sized poppies dotted about the village and asked an old lady (who was writing a name on one) why they seemed to be so rand...

    Poor Lad

    My poor cat Frankie has been in and out of hospital this week as he stopped eating and was losing lots of weight. He's had x-rays, scans, blood tests and, yesterday, a biopsy. Vet thinks it might be lymphoma. Anyway, we're feeding him through a tube...

    Pickering 1940s and HD Pentax-D FA* 50mm f/1.4 AW

    I reviewed the lens for EPZ, sent it back and then the company who sorted the loan went bust. The lens came back undeliverable and Ricoh/Pentax asked me if I minded hanging onto it until things were sorted out. Obviously it was most inconvenient to h...

    Home from Home

    Finally got to see if Frostie uses his new cat home in the garden. Success. I thought he was a smallish cat but it looks as if he just about fits in. Anyway, there's a nice fluffy heat rug inside so he's nice and snug. At least I didn't waste m...

    The Templar Knights of Cressing

    It's great to stumble upon something that inspires the Inner Photographer and such a place is Cressing Temple Barns in Essex. Great barns from the times of the Templar Knights that show a fascinating style of architecture in wood. Fantastic, plus all...

    Des Res

    Well, this little white cat, Frostie, visits every day for meals and I know he'd love to come and live with us but he belongs to a lady down the road. He got to be really, really thin because she never seemed to be in which is why we started feeding...

    Places - Lavenham, Suffolk

    Lavenham is a Photographic Feast for sure. Starting at the old market square with its ancient Guildhall and then exploring the town's main street and the church, everywhere we see gorgeous half timbered buildings in a multitude of colours. Add to tha...
