Time has passed quite quickly since my last blog entry, too quickly at times. I never got the chance to see my uncle after his first op, my fault cos i didnt make the effort like I should have, he passed away a few weeks ago now and it still only seems like yesterday I got the call from mum telling...

Change of view

I had my folio deleted a little while ago, and as I am adding to my new one, I have noticed I am putting up far more seascapes that I used to. I do live quite near the coast so its not a big supprise you might think. But I dont see myself as a coastal shooter, well I didnt. I like my landscapes a...

Smell burning

I am looking forward to my annual archaeological dig starting monday 17. This dig reignited my interest in metal detecting a couple of years ago and from then I have found quite few nice bit, including a Saxon burial not far from my home, adding more to the history of my area. As my last blog entr...

Decent images

Well I went out for a sunset shoot and produced what I think are my best images for about 8 months to a year. The tide and sunset coincided and i was determined to get out and shoot it, I headed for Saltwick bay, not somwhere I was a massive fan of though some do rave about it as a location. Well ...

Total recall

I had reason to recall an event from my childhood yesterday, I have no recolection of this event only my mums account of what happened. I wont go into detail here, but wonder what else my mind is preventing me from remembering. The event was traumatic and caused me pain and suffering, but I rememb...

Getting there

Well I finally completed a few things in the house that have been outstanding for a couple of years. I allways found it hard to part with the cash for something that didnt either feed me or entertain me in some way, like putting gas in the tank to go togging, much more important than having a bit o...

work and weather

Well the weather has been kind of late, but dare I say we need a little rain as my lawns at work will soon go yellow without it. I love this time of year when the buds break on the trees and the county takes on a whole host of green hues. A couple of days of sunshine before a bank holiday does not...

keeping on

Well I have cheered up a fair bit, thanks to a chance meeting of 2 similar minds. I am honoured to be as much a helper as I am to be helped so I will go on as I have and get on with it and on with life. I cannot say how much I appreciate the help and kind words.

Running on empty

Do you ever have those days where you sit down at the end and wonder what the heck did I do today, everything is a jumble and your mind races so you cant think clearly. I felt like that the day the divorce papers landed on my doormat, but I look back now and wonder where did the time go. Its not ...

The weather is starting to take a turn for the better, bulbs coming through and grass starting to grow well, this means my days are getting better, with plenty to do and time to contemplate my ( our ) next photo trip. I was thinking of a camera upgrade, then read an article about improving before m...
