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.

    One of the shopping arcades in town is being knocked down and will ultimately be replaced by a John Lewis. Can't say I have any interest in the new shop but am enjoying watching the demolition and when I do pass I always take a snap or two showing t...

    One from the bus today - I tried a few when on the move but fortunately managed to get a snap when the bus was at a junction :)

    A pretty poor effort today but I did like the way the chap was perched up in the tree. Fortunately he did stop while I walked underneath so was in no danger of a branch landing on my head :)

    Sadly by the time I got off the bus this morning the pink in the sky had gone. It didn't stop me taking a snap or two as I crossed the playing field to the office

    The only downside to mobile pics so far is when it's dark then the noise levels are a tad high. Then again if the subject matter was of great consequence I could use the little Sony I always carry around with me. It still amuses me though when walk...

    The sun was out, the sky blue etc. so I went off and had a potter round town - up a road I don't visit too often so had fresh charity shops to explore plus an 'antique' place at the top of the road. As per usual pickings were thin but I couldn't res...

    I took myself off to the park again this lunchtime - the sun was more or less out - though came out better once I got back to work - never mind. Again the swans were right up at the far end of the lake so I opted not to go up there and instead roame...

    The sun put in an appearance so I decided the best place for me at lunchtime was the park. I didn't see the swans sadly - George has been returned to the lake approximately a week after some idiot shot him through the head with a crossbow! Having s...

    Yet another photo from a bus-stop today but for once pointing into the establishment that is right by the stop. He kept looking out of the window but I finally managed to catch him................

    I give up - here's an extremely boring photo - I refuse to miss a day so sometimes (or frequently) it's going to be a dull as ditchwater pic. I was back from lunch early so mooched around the back of the office for 10 minutes or so trying to find so...

    I unexpectedly ended up at Ikea today - all plans to do cleaning and tidying today went out of the window - oh dear what a shame :) I spent more time mooching and chatting with sis than thinking about photos so here's a pic of the bit of cheesecake ...

    Another one from the bus-stop today - I seem to spend a lot of my life standing at bus-stops!

    The old shopping arcade is being ripped down and replaced with a John Lewis. Some people are doubtless delighted but I preferred it as it was with lots of different shops (although I'm not a fan of shopping) - at least there was a bit of variety. P...

    I suddenly decided to take the afternoon off today - well it was nice and sunny this morning, my work was all up to date and it made sense to run away for the afternoon. I just popped over to Gloucester - there's plenty to keep me occupied for an af...
