I noticed that too


This is a cat.
Not HHHCB mind you.
But a cat all the same.
I know not it's pet human.

This is a colour snap.
On colour film.
Why?
I know not

Why did you not write a message?

Francis Chichester said of his boat Gypsy Moth IV;
" She is cantankerous and difficult and needs a crew of three - a man to navigate, an elephant to move the tiller and a 3'6" (1.1 m) chimpanzee with arms 8' (2.4 m) long to get about below and work some of the gear."

Well, she looked nice enough as she rubbed up behind a visiting old privately owned converted lifeboat the other day in Stormoway.

You know, don't you!

I don't usually 'do' colour. I can't 'do' colour it seems but that didn't stop me recently when Mr Boyd returned a back for the Hassie with some slide film loaded. Went round to see David the music man and see his 1700s violin things. Very lovely they are too. Sounded all nice- a right jolly racket. And no, it's not meant to be in focus. I'll show you the in focus ones - assuming I have any - when you have acclimatised to colour a bit.

Another old one

The weather has been too sunny. Not so keen on that for snapping so I've dug out another old one I like to show you.


I was not sleeping last night so put in my earpiece from the radio and listened to a wonderful programme about a world without words. Listen to it on Radio 4 here while you can. Brilliant.

Found this neg the other day so printed it again.
If I recall, it was published in B&W mag some years ago when they did film stuff.
Took it Manchester with the Voigtlander Perkeo - and still like it !
