There is only one world; the world pressing against you at this minute. There is only one minute in which you are alive; this minute here and now. The only way to live is by accepting each minute as an unrepeatable miracle.

    In the Promenade are two blocks of old phone boxes. Last year they were all taken away for restoration and now they act as display cases for arty stuff. They seem, to be advertising a Pop Art exhibition at the museum/gallery at the moment - maybe I...

    I took a bit of a windy route to the bus stop this evening, snapping as I went. This road used to be busy - a well used run but not now - it's shut for 18 months due to building work - who knows why they need to close the whole road - seems a tad ot...

    I did go tot he park this lunchtime but didn't take any snaps. The blasted heron kept flying further up the lake every time I got closer so no joy with that one. Still, it was lovely and quiet compared to last week when the kids were off. However ...

    I was hanging about round the back of the office this lunchtime waiting for a phone call so took the opportunity to take a few pics of the clematis. Ok the results would be better with a 'proper' camera but still not bad :)

    I'm afraid it's another bus-stop pic this evening - normally I walk into town and then get a bus out but was feeling lazy so popped across the playing field behind the office and caught a bus in. Not the most exciting view but hey ho - I'll try to d...

    I went to Stroud today for a bumble and had a very pleasant time exploring the canal - a part of town I've never had time to wander around. I'll certainly be doing that side of town again.................. The underpasses and bridges over the canal...

    I'we been out all day again so the only photo ops were as I went through town from bus to bus to bus. It was a nice sunny day though so I at least enjoyed the sunshine in between buses! This is the Promenade in Cheltenham...............

    My sister, lucky rotter, has a 3D printer and presented me with a box full of little chaps in different positions recently. Now all I need to do is start using them - this is just a quickie taken at my desk this afternoon :)

    The sky was fab today - lots of interesting shaped clouds all over the place with lots and lots of blue sky in between. Such a shame I was stuck at work all day :( This was taken whilst standing at the bus stop this morning - yes, the rock 'n roll ...

    My sis is fortunate enough to have a 3D printer and she kindly made me a few bits and bobs to play with. One of the items was this pair of paper holders- the little black doodahs on the edge of the paper - they're ace and will be well used around my...

    I managed to find my little clip-on fisheye lens today so popped it on the mobile a few times whilst in Gloucester. Ok, not perfect but then the cloisters at the Cathedral are a tad dark but it's still fun and now I've found it I'm sure I'll play wi...

    After visiting a friend earlier in the afternoon I then went across town to visit dad. This is Coronation Square - a rather run down bit of town with something of a reputation. It's a shame - it's a good space and the University of Gloucester is on...

    I did my regular Saturday trip over to Tetbury which involves getting a bus into town, then one out to Stroud and then over to Tetbury. I leave the house at 8am and arrive at 10.30 - and then do the same in reverse for the trip home. At least I spe...
