    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...

    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...

    Places - The Colne Valley Railway

    This last week we have been in Essex, staying in a cottage just next to Hedingham Castle and the Colne Valley Railway. I was trying to lighten the load by taking the Pentax K-3 II and lenses rather than the K-1 as I have been suffering from some neck...

    Extra Large

    I forgot to look for the name of these huge plants in Kew Gardens but they look like irises with massive leaves. They were being watered via a spray in the middle of the plant hence the mist.

    A Bit Messy

    I took these two shots last week in Hyde Park but it was a very cluttered area. In the first picture I was looking at the girl on the bench mirroring the statue, she on her phone and the statue in a similar pose. In the second image I saw the same ...

    Never Again

    OK, last (promise) post re the pigeons. Have just cleared away all the stuff that was wrapped around the tree to ward off the cat. I got covered in rancid water in the process as the rain had collected in the plastic wrapping. As well as bird drop...

    The Watchers

    More of the pigeons. I had a good morning tidying up the garden and sat down on the bench under the cherry tree to rest. I looked up and saw the partners in crime. :) I suspect they were waiting for a parent to come and feed them as they've only ...
