Such a funny week. Three times I spotted a gaggle of Canada geese under my window and near the bus stop, but by the time I managed to get my camera, they had gone. I started thinking I was imagining them. Yesterday I managed to spot them and get my camera and take some shots of them. About 30 in […]
I am in need of some good old-fashioned cheer….having worked hard on a short story for (I hoped) inclusion in an Anthology and having been unsuccessful, I am in need of a lift. Hope these photos (taken by me) give you a lift too.

Just when you think you are making a new life and leaving the old one behind, up pops the old life….in your face as large as life. I won’t say it is annoying, but it drags up all sorts of weird stuff with it. I have left most of my previous professional life behind me – bar a few things […]
