Black and White

Black and white, tinted, duotone, and spot color photographs. If you see a color picture here, it means there’s a black and white picture in the post.

Gary and the Pole Hollow Cairn – Time for the obligatory selfie at the cairn. I prefer this black and white version. +1

Hall Gear Closet – taped and first skim coat applied. Ginger, “Most people just buy furniture, they don’t build things in.” Gary, “It must be the Frank Lloyd Wright in me.” +1

Hall Gear Closet – Framing. New project. We have two-and-a-half closets in the house full of backpacking gear (and some overflow in the shed too). Doing something about it is long overdue. I decided to use the space that used to be occupied by the piano and convert it into a gear closet. Today I started framing the new built-in closet. +3

Through the veil – It’s taken me a while to see the potential in this picture. I like this alternate treatment of the image.

Hike over – Time for a quick selfie sitting in the back of the car. All in all, I hiked 11 miles and climbed 1,100 feet. Considering I’ve not done any exercising since my last trip (and that was only six miles), I’m happy with that result.

Camp Life – Journaling – Today was one of the few times I’ve actually got round to writing in my journal while I’m out backpacking. 5 pictures

Backpacking Selfie.

Mid-hike posing – What the well-dressed English hiker wears abroad – I’m not going to win any fashion awards. It’s just as well I didn’t meet any people on the trail. Two-minute read, 3 pictures

A family trip down the range – this afternoon we went down to Sound of Freedom in Ozark for some family ‘range time’. One-minute read. 4 pictures

Yew, Pumpkin, & Feather – evidence of fairies in the woods.

The yew trees at Kingley Vale are large and old (400 years or so), they are also weirdly contorted as can be seen here.

It’s tough being Tubby — We have a new nickname for him — Roomba. Poor blind Tubby earned it by the way he navigates around the house. He’ll walk off in a random direction until he hits a wall and then head off in some other random direction. One-minute read

The Books on my desk – Last night, when I tidied up I left a stack of books on the corner of my desk. Seeing them this morning reminded me how much my life has changed. Four-minute read, 2 pictures

Blue Bowl (Black and White) – This is the picture that I wanted to get, and the image is ‘straight out of camera’. One-minute read

Oops! I walked into a plate glass window. No real damage done, and luckily there was no one around to witness me doing it.
