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.

    I realised earlier this evening that I'd not taken any pics on the mobile today. well I stayed home due to the less than lovely weather and spent my time blitzing, cleaning,vacuuming, sorting - all the fun stuff you do on a Bank Holiday. Obviously...

    I went over to Gloucester today to visit the prison. It's not been in use for about 5 years or so and now you can take a look around. Not cheap - 15 for solo wandering and a bit more for a guided tour. I'll go back and do the guided tour next tim...

    Out all day again today and few photos taken apart from my walk round from the bus-stop to the next bus-stop. This is the town library - I've not been in there for years I'm afraid but take pics of it quite regularly.

    Sometimes I expect bit too much from the camera on the mobile - it'll never beat a real camera but still keeps me amused Lunchtime in the park again today - I'll be steering clear next week as it's half term and the place will be packed out with k...

    Another bus-stop photo today - I did take a few around town but have deleted them - all the same old stuff. At least this is slightly different and the dirty 'glass' provided a ready made grunge filter :)

    It's been a lovely sunny, toasty day so I went off to the park at lunchtime to see if I could find the swans. This time they were out on the grass snoozing but happily did wake up and I spent a bit of time just standing watching them.

    Alas I didn't take any snaps on the mobile today - just nothing inspiring to see on my walk into town and back at lunchtime - not quite sure why. I did at least grab a handful of grass from the verge when got home and popped them next to my led lig...

    I commented to someone yesterday that there is a gas mask hanging on my coat rack. He found it surprising so I took a snap this morning before I left from work to show what hangs up there. The mask is in the khaki bag along with big black gauntlets...

    Sunday often isn't a good day for taking snaps on the mobile. Today I spent from 10am to 2pm working in the garden and then, after a break, trundled off to visit dad at the care home. I walked home and one route is 20 minutes tramping along one str...

    Most Saturdays I bumble off out for the day and very often I have time to kill waiting for my bus. I take the opportunity to take random snaps around town though there comes a point when I keep taking pics of the same old stuff. Still, the fountain...

    I lurked a while behind the office this lunchtime - back from my wanderings too early and reluctant to go back in. There's not a lot to take pics of round there - the clematis is pretty much done and that's about it at the moment. At least I manag...

    Presumably once upon a time there was a bicycle attached to this lock :)

    I realised this evening that the only photo taken on the mobile today was of a not terribly inspiring puddle - well it's been raining all day and I've been totally uninspired. So I chose one of my bits of dead vegetation and decided to see what I co...

    My desk has quite a few plastic toys on it and I suddenly realised this afternoon that the Cybermen were discussing the wisdom of upgrading Noddy.

    It's been a day of few photos - just a pic at the bus stop - yes, boring - and the evening spent adding bits to the new laptop that I can't live without. I'm certainly not putting all the plugins and wotnot back on - just the stuff that I use daily....
