Twelve Favourites for Christmas

22 Dec 2021 10:03PM   Views : 499 Unique : 327

Another year, and a very productive one in many ways. Despite the spectre of Covid19, the photography has been great and I've loved every minute of it. So here's a selection from 2021, one favourite (not necessarily best) image from each of the twelve months.

January found me looking into my archive, starting here with the Crinan canal.

February I was exploring all sorts of cameras, including razor sharp hybrid models.

March we reprocessed images from the Isle of Skye

April down at Astley Green mine.

May saw Sue making good progress with her doll's house refurbishment.

June I was renovating my archive of old family photos.

July we were getting out and about and meeting people more.

August and a fine Inca Tern.

September holidays around Anglesey Abbey.

October at Brinkburn Priory and Manor House.

November at Pennington Flash.

December at RHS Bridgewater.

So Merry Christmas to all and here's looking to a brilliant 2022, hopefully anyway!

The Amazing Dalbeattie Museum Trust

This is a small but packed museum in Dalbeattie, Dumfries and Galloway. It covers a couple of floors in a corner shop location and is packed with artefacts, the bad news for us being that many of them are things that we have owned or used as youngste...

Golden Slumbers

There's an exhibitions of Egypt's Golden Mummies at Manchester Museum, and we went down to see it this afternoon. I travelled very light this time, in the end using just the Pentax MX-1 compact camera. The conditions were very dark and the exhibits l...
