    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...

    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 ...

    My Little Waif and Stray

    Last night ADAPS booked the Lancashire Mining Museum for a private shoot. At 6pm the heavens opened and the rain was torrential. At 6.30pm it all cleared up and we had a gorgeous end of day, with all the sun that we get when travelling home from a ra...
