Keeping Its Balance

The weather today was very dull with a couple of hours of rain of varying velocity early this afternoon. When the precipitation had desisted we took a drive into the forest. A group of ponies gathered on either side of Charles’s Lane wandered back and forth across the road. I am normally quite at easeContinue reading “Keeping Its Balance”

Talking Heads

I may have mentioned that my Canon 70-300mm lens became stuck just before Christmas, and I took it into Wessex Photographic in Ringwood for a quotation. This has come back. The cost is ¬£70 more than a second-hand one the store had in stock. That being a no-brainer, Jackie drove me to replace my olderContinue reading “Talking Heads”

Eric’s Trampling

Even in the restaurant last night, my camera was not safe from Flo’s clutches. Here is a photograph she took of her mother: For those of you who have suggested the obvious Birthday/Christmas present, we bought one for this talented photographer a couple of years ago, but she didn’t bring it with her this time.Continue reading “Eric’s Trampling”
