Keeping up with the swan theme… here’s a lad spotted yesterday. I enjoy the wet feet as well as the ringlets and drops below the bill.
Sometimes we’re helped by Ma Nature. She creates the abstracts for us… effortlessly! In this case the swans floated effortlessly along the pond… their bow waves drawing their own lines across the water. So, all I had to do is … Continue reading
I did a long winter’s evening lake patrol the other evening. It was one of those around zero Deg C, windless evenings where you don’t mind being out if you’re suitably dressed. I had the 170 – 500 lens fitted … Continue reading
We’ve had so much rain! Rain… rain and more rain. Oh… and wind, wind and more wind. OK… you get the picture. Here’s an idea of just how bad it has been at times. Imagine, the ducks… and geese and … Continue reading
A few days ago Janet, from Meetings Booker, invited me to do a post about my favourite Dublin meeting place. I immediately thought of a few so I may do a series to cover some of the sights and sounds of … Continue reading

Today I’ll deviate from the Silent Sunday ritual… you’ll agree this lad deserves his own Sunday show! Happy new month!!
Aha – 2015 – yep, last year this time we did exactly what we’re doing now… well, some of you may have. I have, for long years, declared that the only New Year’s resolution I’ll make is to make NO … Continue reading
I stood watching this couple for a minute or so. The lady was rather particular… the hand gestures going this way and that. They seemed totally oblivious to the fact that something was going on almost within arm’s length. Fortunately … Continue reading
This week I’m so mixed up with my times and switched off to reality that I missed Ailsa’s challenge by a day. Oh well, nothing doing but catching up. I can’t let this one go by as just last Monday … Continue reading
Cheri’s challenge this week allows the mind to roam. The good lady says we don’t have to associate community with people and I’m in total agreement. When I spotted this scene yesterday afternoon I was reminded of the concept of … Continue reading
