Day 296 – A Spot Of Colour…

We are never going to see autumn colours here to rival those in New England, but they are pretty impressive nevertheless. This tree is just a mile or so from home and the best of the colours are coming through now …

Day 295 – Oldie But Goodie…

I’ve wanted to get a classic 35mm ‘pocket’ camera for a while, but I’ve been outbid on every occasion up to now. This little beauty was advertised at £30 on the website of a reputable photo retailer so I dived in, and it arrived this morning… First indications are very promising.

Day 294 – Trick Or Treat…?

OK, it’s another 10 days until Halloween, but with two grandchildren to amuse, we decided to decorate the house ready for the 31st… I guess we will carve pumpkins a little nearer the time (stay tuned!) but for now we are using the plastic variety…

Day 293 – The Real Thing…

Although I read the odd book on holiday, and little otherwise, my wife positively devours books – sometimes 2 or 3 in a week. We both have Kindle e-readers, which are fantastically useful on holiday, but overall she prefers ‘real’ books. This is our bookcase at home – most of the books here are waiting to be read as we usually give them away when finished…

Day 291 – Still Going…

It was my wife’s birthday a week ago and I bought her flowers (of course). Normally, cut flowers only last a few days in our house as it’s pretty warm, but as you can see these are still going strong. It may cost more buying them from a florist rather than a supermarket, but they definitely last longer…

Day 289 – All Set Up…

Ever since I bought my laptop I’ve been planning on getting an external monitor for it, and doing away with my desktop iMac. There’s nothing wrong with the iMac, it’s just easier to manage photos on one computer only. Finally did it today!
