A quick view of strokebloke's recent activity.

  • Any Port In A Storm

    I trust that your troubled mind is eased somewhat by these beautiful photos.
    Take care

  • Lady Hazel n her brass bits

    A buxom young lady - a pity about the wonky fleur de lys on top of her head.
    Unless I'm being naive and it is intentional. Grin

    Fine detail & contrast

  • Burke & Hare

    They would probably burst out laughing (rather than kill) if confronted with a body like mine.
    A gruesome but interesting S/S Smile

  • Amarylis

    These flowers are my wife's. I am simply instructed to photograph them. Tongue
    I would never consider going anywhere near a plant. They turn black if i even look at them. Grin
    I believe that she did, at one time, keep them for successive years. I'm not sure that she still does so.
    The amarylis process usually entails a comptition between herself and her mother, who is 89.
    I keep well away from such confrontations.

    A nice set again Lynne.
    For just a moment I thought it was shots of Mablethorpe Grin

  • The first of (Phase ???) many more, I hope. Grin
  • You have a talent for colour, composition and detail Ju.
    A splendid Pf.
  • A splendid and first class portfolio. And prodigious Albums too.
    A pleasure to peruse
  • Welcome Jeff.
    I, like Patti, would certainly not use the classification for your work that you have done. Your modesty is admirable, if a little conservative.
    Your work is colourful and of excellent quality. And you have an eye for detail and composition.
    And I will certainly return to see more of it, as time goes by.

    (I tend to refer to myself as an Enthusiast, as an expression of my intent, if not my ability.) Grin Wink

    Kind regards,

  • A varied and wide ranging portfolio Nathan. I demonstrates a wide spectrum of skill. A pleasure to peruse.
    Thank you.
    Like yourself, having experienced cerebral trauma, I know how much determination is required to live a 'normal' life again.
    All credit to you for your perseverance.

  • I was amused and intrigued by your comment to Paul in the CG on Zigga's rugby offering.
    It is obvious that you are very well qualified to have made such an observation GrinGrin
    You have an impressive Pf; and an equally impressive website.

    I shall return when I have some more time to browse

  • I seem to keep missing your uploads Herman, then I visit your Portfolio and see what I've missed.
    Always very refreshing. You're an inspiration. Thank you Wink
