Will she get home safely?


Imagined seascape.

It arrived here on the paper from goodness knows where but it speaks to me.

Not all sunshine here in Spring

We got wet. Toots and I. Toots was collecting pixels with some ancient electronic device, fannying around and everything so missing the light. Oh deary me. He is co-authoring a book which seems to include a lot of concrete things so that's why we were - sorry, he was - collecting concrete infused pixels.

Up at the road to nowhere we were and no snow in sight - despite that effect here from the Foma400 film in ID11.

William and Charlie


William is the one with the knapsack I might add here. Wouldn't want you to get the wrong idea. Not sure what happened to Charlie since this was 2011 when I shot the both of them with a Kiev60 [with a leaking shutter]. That was back in the day and everything.

I still have the Kiev 60 and bring it out to play when I am feeling strong and the light is low. It's a f2.8 lens - if that means anything to you - so it works well when the light rays are less than fullsome. Must try and resolve that shutter issue really as the lens is lovely. I mean, look at that sheeps legs. Eh? Lovely aren't they?

Just so you know how lucky we are to live here, the rain/sleet/snow is battering the window as I write, blown as it is by the gale that comes in from Greenland. Not sure the lambs are enjoying it at all.

Walking with Toots


I took it upon myself to encourage Toots to leave the confines of his beach opposite his house and come to one of 'our' beaches. Only, we spent most of the time taking a portrait of the Bridge here on the 'Road to Nowhere much'.  looking out over Garry beach. It's an early concrete bridge built under the auspices of Lord Leverhulme by local men in the main. The road to Ness was never finished, it is said because of the locals having a disagreement about land with the Lord. However, it is a nice stroll for a mile or two along the coast on a track to a fine bog at the other end. Traverse this bog and you too could walk to Ness. By why you ask? I have no answer.
