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.

  • Joe Jackson

    We could only get tickets in the Gods for this latest concert but I snapped a few souvenir shots. They're pretty bad, and to be honest, the ones I took at the last concert with my little Canon S100 are better. Surprising. Anyway, Joe was accompanie...

  • Quantish

    When I was in senior school we were allowed to make our own summer uniform in needlework class. I hated needlework, but at that time Mary Quant was all the rage so I chose a Butterick pattern and made my dress up in the school colours of blue and gr...

  • White? Cat

    Don't ever get a white cat. They may be cute and fluffy when they've had a wash, but they usually look grubby, like Frostie here. Typical boy. :)

  • Frostie at the Dog and Duck and with Fat Tabby

    Frostie is being extra cute these days. This doggy doorstop was my lovely old cat Gracie's favourite companion, and it looks as if Frostie is going the same way. He loves his duck toy too, so he spends a lot of time on the rug with them both. He a...

  • Try a Bit Later

    Half way through the ironing I decided to have a break and do something on the computer. Half an hour later I thought I'd better get back to work but something Such a naughty boy. :)

  • What Is It?

    My brother has just rehomed another dog, but surely not a breed that we're likely to see at Crufts this week. :D He's a bit of a mash-up but is, apparently, very gentle. Can't wait to meet Eddie. :)

  • Sensible

    If you want people to put rubbish in the proper place, make it easy, as they have done at the Olympic Park, Stratford. :)

  • Crocuses

    How lovely to see the crocuses blooming in amongst the trees in the local park. Pity they don't last very long. I took some shots but decided to play around. I liked this look as it seemed to make the flowers glow from the middle. Just basic messi...

  • 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...
