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.

  • Back to Normal?

    Covent Garden was heaving with visitors yesterday. In fact, London seemed to be as full of people as usual everywhere I went, many from abroad too. 0

  • The Litter Pick

    Gosh, 1 1/2 years since I've done a blog. I obviously didn't do anything interesting at all during that time. Anyway, just a snap of the regular litter pick meeting station in our local park. A group of us go out every couple of weeks, all year r...0

  • Frostie doing his Ballet

    Watching The Red Shoes on TV yesterday, and Frostie seemed to be joining in. Hubs took this photo on his mobile so not such good quality, but I thought it was cute. 0

  • Moonset

    Got up to feed the cat at 7.30ish this morning and saw the moon setting over the roofs at the back of the house. The quality of light was wonderful, but unfortunately not easy to capture. Just took a record shot though. It was beautiful. You'll h...0

  • Here we go Again

    Frostie is always getting something!!! He's now got stiches in his mouth and on his back. Day one of a 10-day lockdown for him. It would be nice to go for at least six months without him having to go to the vet. :( 0

  • Pooped

    We've been decorating all week and we're worn out. Frostie didn't help at all so I've no idea why he's so tired. 0

  • Heybridge Basin

    Went for our first "proper" day out today, to Heybridge Basin, Maldon, Essex. I've often snapped these old wrecks but they're finally sinking into the mud and rotting away. Quite sad really, but it was a lovely trip. And we had fish and chips. :) ...0

  • Frostie TV

    Poor Frostie had to be kept in for a week as he had a poor paw. He didn't enjoy it one bit, him being an outdoor cat, but I found some videos for cats on YouTube and he really liked the bird ones. Once he found that he couldn't actually chase them ...0

  • Fly

    I quite often see pics of flies in the gallery. They're pretty ugly things, but this one was just sitting around yesterday so I grabbed it while I could. 0

    A lovely procession of swans on the lake today, just drifting in the middle. Then all at once, they fell asleep. Really cute. :) 0

  • Another Fine Mess

    This is what happens when you iron a polyester T-shirt with a very hot iron. The stuff peeled off of the iron eventually leaving these rather attractive bits of stuff, but the T was history. 0
