  • Nice Old Man

    I might have another go at processing this a bit better as I loved this old chap who was having a chat with the man serving on the nut stall. A work in progress.

  • Backgrounds

    So frustrating. You get a good shot of people in the foreground, but when you get home you notice someone with light coloured clothing in just the wrong position who ruins the shot. I really don't know what to do about it as you can't hang around s...

  • Milking It

    Frankie's not been very well lately. He's not been able to jump and has been listless and a bit miserable. After a hefty examination (wallet-wise) at the vet he's got some meds and seems to be on the mend, albeit slowly. A good excuse for him to m...

  • Evening on the River

    A lovely evening on the South Bank in London. Just a quick snap before we went for dinner. Just got to find something to do today now. Our cat Frankie is in the vets having all sorts of tests. :(

  • Cool Cat

    Just a bit of tat from a tat shop in the OXO building. I'm surprised at this shop full of rubbish being in such a place, but I suppose the tourists must like it.

  • OXO

    Had a very nice dinner at the Oxo Tower last night. Weather was lovely and the view as the sun set and all London's lights appeared was beautiful. Too busy eating and drinking to take many pics but just took this one before we went up. Would recomm...

  • Not Fit for Purpose

    I'm not sure what this silver "cover" is supposed to be doing on this chap's bike, but I'd get a new one if I were him. :)

  • I Wouldn't Chance It

    A water fountain in our local park. Clogged up with rubbish, with lichen and dirt all over it. Cholera anyone?

  • Air Con UK Style

    We've not quite caught up with the US regarding air conditioning. I snapped this behind a local cafe. Better than nothing though. Phew............

  • Big Hairy Guy

    Just found this little guy on my kitchen tiles. Must have flown in last night. Just took a couple of quick, not-very-good snaps as I'm about to go out. I gently put him in a glass and took it outside to the garden shed but it was very, very quiet. ...

  • Enhancement ?

    Our roads are full of unnecessary street furniture, painted lines, signs and mess. So, what do we need? - Obviously a large, ugly structure in the middle of our local roundabout. I've no idea what it's supposed to represent but a large bit of...

  • Cat and Mouse or Cat amongst the Pigeons

    Just put some old bread out for the pigeons which had been hanging around pecking the lawn for some time. By this time Frankie had got tired of playing with his mouse on elastic so he was resting. Cat and Pigeons are so used to each other now they ...

  • Last Shop Standing

    Well, today the last branch of BHS closed for good, thanks to those greedy bu**ers who bled it dry. Although not to everyone's taste, it did a good line in basic clothing which everyone could afford, and some very nice home wares. I'll miss it, and...

  • Stuffed with Culture

    Had a wander round the National Portrait Gallery today and stumbled across the William Eggleston exhibition. Some good photos, but quite a small exhibition. Then I strolled around the BP Portrait Awards followed by a look at the Flemish masters in ...

  • Rats!

    It comes over from my neighbour's garden and jumps onto the feeder. Cheeky thing.
