I came home and took a snap of a rained on window

I had to do it. I wasn't feeling that bright to be honest. I'd been 'got-down' or something. So here we are, a snap of a window.


Someone had been chewing a wasp!

The Voigtlander Bessa R with Jupiter 8 got a run out for this and, I broke out the Foma 400 and rated it at 800. As I do. Then sloshed it in Rodinal.

It has to be done from time to time

Had a lovely visitation from The Artist formerly known as Jon the other evening. What a lovely surprise that was - especially since he brought Andrea with him. That's the sculpterister Andrea not me. From Edinburgh apparently. And very lovely she is too I must say. We talked all three of us and then four as Eve came home. That's Eve from Leeds way, the partnerister.

In front of the cooking device we talked - it's warm there. And the reels were waiting where they had been earlier. Waiting for the film from the Perkeo and everything.


This is from the film in the Perkeo. Was it worth the wait?

The Artist spoke fondly of the film at the Arts centre - so we went to watch it. Something of a metaphor along the lines of cake is not a good thing' or something like that. Didn't really understand the thing - the colours were nice, Tilda Swinton looked fab and the shapes on the screen too were interesting, but the story? I was hoping The Artist would explain all. Only he didn't go. It was The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Don't try and tell me we are not sophisticated here.




Is sunshine a mark of sophistication? If it is, and it might well be somewhere, we had that. The other day for an hour or more. And I have a snap to prove it. The local chapter of boys on bikes were out in force, doing their thing. With gusto. If that's not sophistication, what is?


And I noticed The Moped parked in front of An Lanntair. Sun glistening on its,,,,, its bits. Is that not sophisticated?

I know, I took these snaps with some dodgy cinematic copy film using a little point and shoot camera I found down the back of the settee, but hey, did I look sophisticated?


Er,,,, No.

A fencescape


I get annoyed when you see a nice fence by the road in the rain and you find that if you don't want to get out of the dry car to image up the thing, the scene can get compromised. See here, the flippin bits of rock things got in the way. Ruined my fencescape.

The Vistor

It was Angelica over here breathing our air taking our views in and everything - from Germany via Danmark and Ullapool. Making films for someone in power by all accounts and then kipping in the Summer Parlour. Like you do.

Telling us all about Soka Gakkai and all that stuff. I listened and everything because it is very interesting and I might have learned something. I might have. And Angelica is very nice too. Here she is taking in the spring warmth on the beach.


She has gone back o'er the water now, but I think she will be back again.
