A good read


Sadly I see no prospect of going there in the near (or more distant) future. To compensate, I’m working on my model railway, and one of the models is of a loco at the SVR.

Begonia and fuchsia


One of two . The other one is better but the background is a problem, and it would be rather heavy for me to move it to a better position for a photo.

A windy day, which made it difficult to photograph this plant.

Pure self indulgence. Tomorrow I’ll open the box!

No card problems on the camera today (it was this camera which gave me some problems yesterday). This is n’t quite how I meant to take the photo though, as two of the camera controls had moved, so I was using average metering and the JPEG version of the photo was in one of the art modes! Actually I have chosen for once to use the JPEG version rather than processing the RAW picture!

Another rather dull and uninspiring day, but the gazanias provided a spot of colour.

I had a number of problems today with the camera repeatedly reporting card errors when turned on, and unable to reformat the cards.

Another rather dull and uninspiring day, so another emergency photo.

Wildflower corner


Another photo of one of the wildflower areas in my garden.

Not a very nice day, and I spent a lot of time trying to discourage the magpies, and also doing some more work on the films I processed the other day.

The first of this year’s tomatoes is ripening nicely, and another 4 are changing colour too. There are plenty of smaller ones, still green, on the 4 plants.
