Sunset silouette


Out for a meal tonight & managed to capture this scene as the sun went down.  Not a bad shot on a phone.

And of course from the crabs point of view, things are not looking good right now.

Crab baskets a plenty in Lyme Regis.  They look so much better in black & white.  Clearly not good for the crabs though :)

All buoys love to play in the mud!

I like this shot, but am struggling for a title.  All suggestions go into the hat for an update :)

Back at last. I hope.

Hi Everyone, long time no post!

I have not posted for so long now I expect I will be back to zero followers.  Things have been hectic to say the least.

The bad news is that I have literally not had time to pick up a camera for months.  So long in fact, that this week when I did venture out with small daughter, I had actually forgotten how to use the thing.

Work has almost taken over life recently.  So much going on & so many projects to get involved in, none of which involved time for photography.  On a positive note however, I have just (finally) managed to get promoted.  Same job, same hassle, but the level increase, makes a huge difference & really makes it all worthwhile.

Photography has taken a back seat to cycling as well.  I was running to keep fit but to be honest I just got bored.  10k runs just were zero fun.  I did a charity ride in London last year, the 100k Nightride & I got the bug.  It was so much fun & I have been going ever since.  (Clearly not Forest Gump style) but I have been out & bought a proper road bike & have signed up for many rides this year.  Training is key & clearly this also doesn’t give me much time for the photos.

Small daughter was home from Uni this week so we decided to take a trip into Lyme Regis.  We had a great day.  Took plenty of photos & had a good catch up.  Its good to have her home. I do miss her, even though I do see her in London as often as I can.

There was loads going on in Lyme this week, the funniest moment was, having watched the dredging going on in the harbour, we actually witnessed them dumping the contents of the harbour onto the beach!!  They really didn’t give people much time to get out of the way, as you can see the buckets & ball just got covered in the harbour mud.  They decided this was clearly not a good plan & started dumping elsewhere afterwards.

Anyway, I plan to be back as often as I can & a few pictures from Lyme over the next few days will hopefully get me going again.

I hope to catch up with everyone I have missed over the next few weeks & months.

Take care all.  best wishes.  John

2014 in review – Not bad for only 8 months!!

I’ll take this opportunity to wish all my followers a very Happy New year & wish everyone the very best success for 2015.  I’ve been off the grid for a while now due to huge work commitments but I plan to return soon.

Hers to a magical & rewarding 2015 for all.

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,600 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 60 trips to carry that many people.

Now thats what I call a view…

Now when I retire, I’d like to put my retirement home on top of this hill in Gran Canaria. Amazing view, sitting above the clouds.
