The Chinese Lantern

CLICK ON ANY OF THE GROUPED IMAGES TO ACCESS GALLERIES Today I found another batch of colour negatives, previously presumed lost. These are of   Becky and Flo at Lindum House in Newark during the summer of 2002.   Flo played tennis with a somewhat reluctant Paddy, the dog. She also ran about   andContinue reading “The Chinese Lantern”

Waiting For A Bus

CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE OR TO ACCESS GALLERY This afternoon, Jackie drove us around the forest. On the outskirts of Brockenhurst a troop of cattle exercised their right to hold up the traffic. Over Lymington River a swing has been suspended from a tree bearing a lengthy lichen-laden limb kept out of the waterContinue reading “Waiting For A Bus”

Tree House Construction Manual

CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE. REPEAT AS REQUIRED The weather in Newark in June 1992 was drier than it is at the moment. Today I therefore scanned a batch of colour negatives produced during that month.

CLICK ON SMALLER IMAGES TO ACCESS LARGE GALLERIES. THESE CAN BE FURTHER ENLARGED This morning Aaron began taking dead branches out of the cypress tree. As can be seen, there is still much colour in the garden. I photographed him and made him an A4 print which I cannot upload, receiving the same message as yesterday.Continue reading “No Resolution”

A Walk In The Park

Although my virus has definitely improved, it is still taking a while to clear my head, so, when I set out this morning to scan another batch of Elizabeth’s returned prints, I couldn’t face sorting them, so, instead, scanned a group of carefully catalogued colour slides from March 1973. On a walk in Westminster’s St James’sContinue reading “A Walk In The Park”
