Breakfast in America

Living happily ever after still means you have to clean house and do the dishes


These are all pictures I’ve gone back and updated. It may be because I didn’t like the original, or because my post processing skills and the tools at my disposal are now far better than those available when I originally took the picture.

Smoke, No Mirrors – Reprise, Black and White

One of the very first photographs I took when I bought my first digital camera. I’ve always liked this image, when I decided to re-visit the picture I also produced this black and white version. Fawley Oil Refinery, Southampton Water,… Continue Reading →

Smoke, No Mirrors – Reprise

One of the very first photographs I took when I bought my first digital camera. I’ve always liked this image, but it has always produced a ‘meh’ response from others. That was probably because while I could visualize the original… Continue Reading →

Sweet Dreams Getzger

Later in the day on Sunday Getzger became very quiet. Monday he went on one of his favorite car rides, to visit the vet. The news wasn’t good. Acute renal failure, Getzger was now on ‘final approach’. We brought him… Continue Reading →

Butser Sunset

I took this picture eight years ago, it’s taken me that long to come up with a suitable post production treatment for it. I remember being very disappointed that what the camera recorded and I subsequently processed didn’t match the… Continue Reading →

Ironed Out

Original caption: “Best part of three weeks away and I’m overrun by ironing.” When I took the original version of this picture I had just returned to the UK from my first visit to see Ginger in the US. The… Continue Reading →

This seemed like a good idea at the time (365:338)

Turned out to be an awful picture This ranks up there with the worst I’ve taken this year.

Waiting for the trash man (365:292)

Things didn’t go quite as planned The plan was to get the work finished on the house, get the work inspected, have all the rubbish taken away, hire a trailer for the pick-up, load everything to go back to Springfield,… Continue Reading →

Larchwood path

This Larchwood path was part of our Comrie hike. I remember as a kid larchwoods being depicted as dark and spooky. They are! This is one image of three that I am thinking of printing as a triptych.

Looking Towards the Islands

Looking across the Firth of Clyde towards Great Cumbrae and Bute. Taken from near Largs, Scotland.

Looking Towards the Islands (Black & White)

Looking across the Firth of Clyde towards Great Cumbrae and Bute. Taken from near Largs, Scotland. Black and white version. Edit: When I first uploaded this I thought I saw a blue tinge to the sky. I assumed I was… Continue Reading →

Red Bluff on Huzzah Creek, Davisville, Missouri

A couple of days break. With Mick heading back to the UK, we had a couple of days leisure time before we had to collect the girls at St Louis and then get ready to start back on the school… Continue Reading →

Beautiful Decimation

Japanese Beetle damage at Nathaniel Greene Park, Springfield We went for an evening walk in the park down on Scenic and noticed a couple of trees were looking odd. On getting closer we could see that all the leaves had… Continue Reading →

Long Haul (365:15)

We’re in this for the long haul, while red tape binds us there are no quick returns despite their best efforts at keeping us apart we are constant companions in our hearts separated by earth and sea parted by time… Continue Reading →

Back to Basics (365:14)

It was about time I took another nude.

A lot to consider (365:4)

Despite the laughs and smiles, life (mainly in the form of bureaucracy) is putting up so many obstacles right now that from time to time one can’t help but get dragged down by them.

Near Olga, State Highway Z

I was stopped twice while taking this picture. Once by some locals in a passing truck, and a few minutes later by the property’s owner. I don’t think he was convinced that I wasn’t up to any good, and he… Continue Reading →

Panoramic Sunset – South Parade, Southsea UK

A spectacular sunset and South Parade Pier, Southsea I’ve been going back looking for pictures I’ve accidentally missed. This is one of them, a fantastic panoramic view of a sunset and South Parade Pier in Southsea. I remember the evening… Continue Reading →

Fresh (365: 175)

And that’s all I have to say about that.
