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.

  • All Worn Out

    Frostie loves his ducky toy and we have to play duck-on-elastic every evening, and sometimes during lunch too. This was him last night after a session, and ducky looks as pooped as Frostie. :)

  • Back to Normal?

    Hope I'm not tempting fate, but Frostie's now had all his inoculations and treatments for various things, and hopefully we can now put the cat carrier away for a year. Some hope, but fingers crossed. Here he is under his favourite table with his toy...

  • Getting Better All the Time

    Well, here he is. He certainly knows how to make himself comfy and he's super-cute. Eating like a horse, can play all day and is looking very happy. :)

  • Done a Poo

    Frostie has just done his first poo for 5 days. :D It took an enema to get him going, but once home from the vet he couldn't wait to get upstairs to the litter tray where he produced a splendid sample. So, he does know where it is when desperate. ...

  • Poor Frostie

    He's not happy, but at least he's getting medical attention, a lovely warm home and food - if he can be bothered to eat. He hasn't eaten very much at all the last few days but he nearly bit my arm off an hour ago when I hand fed him some nice ham. M...

  • Getting There

    Well, turns out little Frostie had a nasty abcess on his shoulder so he went straight to the vet today. He was so good in the basket and car, not a peep out of him. The vet immediately fell in love with him as he behaved impeccably and let her drai...

  • Not Quite There Yet

    Well, Frostie is not turning out as expected. He's been here since Thursday evening but all he seems to have done is sleep. All day. I've enticed him into the garden a couple of times by dragging a rope mouse around the lawn for him to chase, which...

  • A New Home

    Well, Frostie made himself at home on the bed last night (you were right Karen), but for some reason decided to go down to next door's shed to finish his sleep at 3.00am. I think it might take a bit of time for him to adapt to a new home but there's...

  • Happy

    I am so happy. After the sadness of losing Frankie, we've now rehomed his little friend, Frostie, the pure white cat. No new pic yet but there are some earlier on in my blog. It turned out that the lady who owned him was wondering what to do as she...

  • Strange Goings On

    I don't know if this is a latest craze or what, but came across a group of people in the park today wearing plastic cups on their heads. Children and adults. Oh well, it was Boxing Day.

  • Goodnight My Lovely Boy

    Our lovely boy, Frankie, finally gave up today after a two-month illness. We've been feeding him and giving meds through a tube to his stomach seven times a day for about a month which has been very stressful for all of us, but in the end he went the...

  • While the Cat's Away

    Cheeky black cat from down the road settling down in my bay tree pot. Mind you, I think the bay tree's had it so he's welcome. He was very comfy. :) Frankie got his results today and although it's quite serious, it's not lymphoma, and the situat...

  • Poor Lad

    My poor cat Frankie has been in and out of hospital this week as he stopped eating and was losing lots of weight. He's had x-rays, scans, blood tests and, yesterday, a biopsy. Vet thinks it might be lymphoma. Anyway, we're feeding him through a tube...

  • Home from Home

    Finally got to see if Frostie uses his new cat home in the garden. Success. I thought he was a smallish cat but it looks as if he just about fits in. Anyway, there's a nice fluffy heat rug inside so he's nice and snug. At least I didn't waste m...
