When the castle opened, the tripods went away, and this is the usual arrangement we have. It's high time we went again, but until we do our exisiting images will have to serve to remind us. Pictures were shot on the Pentax K20D, so it was a while ago, but it served well.

Always Carry a Camera

I make a point of always carrying a camera, just to capture anything and everything that catches my eye as we carry on with the minutiae of life. I was in Atherton and just heading for the shop that sells fuses and passed a small alleyway that used t...
