Thanks for dropping by. All clicks and comments very much appreciated. Smile

I like documentary and street photography, but a bit of anything else on the side. I tend not to use Photoshop too much, just sticking to the basic adjustments, but sometimes break free to try something "arty".

Thank you for visiting. I love seeing all your photos and hope you like mine.

  • Gotta Get Going

    Now that summer's out of the way and the weather's cooling down I can dust off the old Leki walking sticks and get out Nordic Walking again. Great exercise and lots of fresh air. :)

  • Frankie and Friend

    Just a shot I took in the garden a few days ago. The stuffed dog used to be my old cat Gracie's constant companion; she loved it and used to sleep with it. Frankie, being a bloke, is more the outdoor type so I photographed them together doing what ...

  • Down the Pan

    Not much to report lately but we did have a nice dinner at the Oxo Tower Brassierie last week. I took this snap in the ladies' loo for a challenge, but since I lost up against some poxy view by Malc I'll put my entertaining image in here for posteri...

  • Strangers on a Train

    Just trying out a few shots of people on the tube with my little compact. Not very interesting so I'll put them here instead of the gallery. I'm getting a bit tired of trying to snap candids but can't find anything suitably interesting to do otherwi...

  • Demon Cat

    Just playing around with filters on the camera. Here's Frosty, as usual trying to get into the house where he knows the food is. I have to keep heading him off at the pass, but he is a cutie. :) This one's the Impressive Art filter.

  • New Camera

    Bought a new compact camera yesterday so gave it a run out. Unfortunately my software doesn't recognise the raw files so I'll have to find something that will. I'm sure the Adobe site said it was compatible, but probably my error. Anyway, I tried ...

  • Margate - Homeward Bound. Here endeth the day out

    Well, I went, I saw, and vowed never to go back. Here's my last drag towards the station to home. The third pic is of some sayings carved onto stones, but none that are of any literary value.

  • Margate - the shopping experience

    Some shops in the old town. You will note that even Primark has closed. Couldn't hold its own against the competition, obviously.

    More delights from Margate. Some shops on the front selling necessary requisites, the Clock Tower and around the corner, traditional fast food. :)

  • Margate - More Joys

    You might notice the new art centre in the top pic. It's the big, white concrete thing. Looking the other way is the newly-opened Dreamland, a misnomer if ever there was one, and a smart high rise. At least they have a view of sorts.

  • Margate - on the beach

    Well Monday seemed to be a good day for a trip to the seaside so I went to Margate. I'd heard about the lovely new art centre and the quirky old town with its lovely little shops so I was really looking forward to it. All I can say is, I went, and ...
