Week 22-23: Open Gardeners

You may recall that we moved house a couple of months ago. The new place is great – a big house, great garden, nature reserve right next door. You get the picture. In fact, the only thing I can fault the place for is the terrible beer in the village’s one pub. Cossington (pop. 568) is…

52 Rolls Week 21:52

A bit late with my posting due to the Holiday Weekend….Memorial Day here in the US. If I said this was the last image you would ever see of the Colorado State Capitol Building here, I’d be lying.  So I won’t promise that.  We revisited this location on a sunny day during Doors Open Denver.…

Week 15. My Grandad’s folding Brownie.

And, of course, to combat the desire to buy more cameras or lenses. However that doesn’t mean refusing the generosity of friends of…

Week 20:Vertigo

ok a little change this week, still experimenting of sorts but not quite to the same extent. This week  I went to The View from the Shard, a tourist attraction in London’s tallest building on the 69th & above floors.  I thought it would be interesting to see how the Holga copes with the view.…
