  • Growing older but stronger

    Two things came together this week, out in the garden an old rose bush I had pruned back last year presented me with three beautiful blooms. Did it do this to thank me or just to wish me happy birthday, I would like to think it was the latter. I ha...

  • A long standing wish.

    Ever since I saw my first picture of the roof in the British Museum I have wanted to go and see it for myself. Strangely I was talking about this with a friend at the bowls club and he smiled and said that he was the chap in charge at the time it ...

  • Our green and pleasant land.

    A quick foray into Epping Forest today to take a shot for tonight's Black and White Challenge, never heard of it, shame on you, look it up immediately, well after you have read my blog that is. The point is that the old saying in the title is very...

    Whilst reviewing the shots I have taken this week this one stood out for various reasons. In the week when the Chelsea flower show has graced our screens this garden caught my eye, not on the screen but on a walk. it is in fact part of the l...

  • Bowling along

    Today I was rewarded in pursuance of one of my passions, no I was not named as real ale drinker supreme or photographer of the minute despite my dedicated efforts. I was awarded this, I was given given this memento for my part in the spectac...

  • Rambling on.

    On my walk today to find a picture of windows for the black and white challenge I spotted these. A pair of polygons. After a stop at a café for tea and toast I walked to a rose garden where this beauty was enjoying this morning's hazy suns...

  • Subliminal messages

    It is quite some time since my last blog and a hoard of people, 2, have persuaded me to start again. I gave up in disgust, at myself, for missing my 365 by 20 minutes one evening last October and also at losing my internet connection when the cable w...

  • DAY 280, CLUB TALK

    I was asked to give a talk to my photographic society tonight on my 365 project. It has taken hours of work to go back through my blogs and re-file and rename all the shots and then put them into a Pictures to Exe programme. Consequently I missed ...

  • DAY 278, ON THE BUSES

    On the way to get my paper and see my friend Frank this morning I saw there was a rally for old London buses at the local village hall. It happens that both he and his father used to drive buses in London so we decided to give them the once over. ...

  • DAY 277, CORN SOLDIERS

    The good news is that my broadband connection is not only restored but much faster than before. So I can now talk and talk to the world and openly reach out to say thank you. Having spent most of the day on the computer getting ready to give a talk t...

  • DAY 276, A HOT DATE OR TWO

    After a few years of blissful ignorance I finally got round to replacing the batteries in my bathroom scales. You know the sort, tell them your name, put in your age and height and once weighed you will be told just how fat you are. Now I know I weig...

    Reading the news it seems that supermarket loyalties are changing with more people seeking cheaper prices or better value. One of the dominant companies has announced a drop in profits while another announced an increase. I personally look for the be...
