Welcome to my blog

This is my diary blog which I started when I retired from the Civil Service in April 2010. I like to include some of the things that I see and do with as many photographs as possible. Thank you for visiting my blog I hope you enjoyed it and will return to see what I have been doing. Or you could always join and be one of my followers.

If you would like to use one of my photographs then please ask me first, as they are all subject to copyright.

If you are interested in my crafts then I have added these to my crafting blog -

Photography Challenge

At the Photocraft Camera Club on Wednesday evening we saw the results of the "Variations on a theme" challenge that had been set a few weeks before.   There was no judge, no prizes but just an opportunity to see what the members of the club could come up with using various themes such as; Geometry, Kitchen, Spirals, Low Angle, Humour and Texture.

I chose Kitchen for my theme and here are two of my photographs.
Cheese grater - climbing wall

Demerara Beach


  1. These are fantastic and so clever - did you take any others?

  2. There are 2 others, a skater in a spoon and a photographer with a giant wooden mouse from my cheeseboard. I think the 2 I have published in this blog are the best ones.

  3. Wonderful! How did you get that climber on the grater???
