Reboot

Apologies, dear RSS subscribers, for the deluge of old posts you’ve just received. And apologies for not supplying you with anything new for so many months. I have finally given in and ceased trying to maintain a bespoke content management system with 8 year out of date HTML and webdesign. […]

[fimg id=7898931946] On a small wooded peninsula where there estuaries of the Dwyryd and Glaslyn meet at Penrhyndeudraeth south of Porthmadog in the foothills of Snowdonia in the kingdom of Gwynedd, you can find the Uncanny Valley.

Ball game

[fimg id=181811895] One Saturday towards the end of June in 2006 I caught the sunset over Cincinnati from across the Ohio River in Newport, Kentucky… [fimg id=181796392 size=Medium][fimg id=181816897 size=Medium] while the Cincinnati Reds played in the baseball park, puffs of smoke and sparks of fireworks in the unusually smog-free […]


Tony Benn, 1925–2014

I meant to post these a few weeks ago, of course… [fimg id=829709500] Taken at Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival a whole 7 years ago, with the 50mm f1.8. [fimg id=3222605754] I think Tony spoke at every Tolpuddle since then, but I don’t think I took any more pictures. I should have […]

[fimg id=9998552466] There aren’t many more stunning parts of the country than Torridon in Wester Ross on the coast of the Northwest Highlands.

[fimg id=293920690] I’m not sure why it has taken so long to do a post for Stourhead, the impressive landscape gardens at the source of the River Stour in south west Wiltshire. [fimg id=293918086 size=Medium][fimg id=293257408 size=Medium] I guess I was taken there so many times as a child that […]


Crossing the Moorfoot Hills

[fimg id=7309752564] From where it flows into the Tweed at Innerleithin, a solitary road runs up alongside the Leithen Water — Abhainn Leitheinn, the grey river — and is soon enclosed in perfect round and green hills. [fimg id=8997239796 size=Medium][fimg id=7844877966 size=Medium] It twists and turns and climbs northwards through […]
