  • Switching to a Mac - Part 2

    In my last post I outlined my decision to switch to an iMac 24 inch after many years of using a PC. Well, the iMac arrived a week ago today (in fact it would have been delivered the previous day had I been in). Unfortunately, because of other com...

  • Switching to a Mac - Part 1

    I've just started the process of switching from a PC to a Mac. I've been a PC user for many years now both at home and prior to my retirement 2 years ago, so this is a major step for me and I thought others might be interested in my experiences. ...

    Ten days ago, I had a bit of a health scare and suffered symptoms that pointed to the fact I may have had a TIA (mini-stroke). As I'd had a minor stroke some 3 years ago there were obvious concerns. As a result, I've not been able to drive for ...

  • Selling kit on Ebay....

    I've been away from this site for a while because the time I'm able to devote to photography has been swallowed up during the last 3 or 4 weeks selling photographic kit on Ebay. About 18 months ago I inherited my father photographic gear consistin...

    It's been a while since my last Blog entry because we've been so busy during the last 2 or 3 weeks so there has been only limited time for photography and, sadly for contributions to this site. However, I have managed to find time to complete a pr...

  • Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) and is it me?....

    We visited the YSP yesterday with my 4 year old grand daughter. What a woderful place it is. Lots of open spaces filled with interesting scuptures and sheep (and their poo!) I took a compact with me, but as you can imagine, with a 4 year old in ...
