Day 15: Monday 7th April. Well, it’s the fifteenth day since the lockdown and I should think that the whole nation is waiting now to see if it continues. It obviously will. Whether there will be even more restrictions initiated after Easter will depend on what people do during the bank holiday. I think the … Continue reading 15 days – Day 15
15 Days – Day 14
Day 14: Monday 6th April Back to work today, so I move my screen to the back of my desk at home and open the company laptop in its place. I worked until lunchtime when I had a very nice salad made by Mrs M. Once we had finished and had the ubiquitous cup of … Continue reading 15 Days – Day 14

The X-E3 came with the Fujinon 23mm F/2 … Continue reading Fuji X-E3 and the Fujinon 18mm F/2
On Safari : Part 1
Let’s get one thing clear from the start, I am not a wildlife photographer. The photographers who do this photographic discipline have a particular form of dedication and skill which I have nothing but admiration for. However, over the next couple of weeks, I will be showing some of the photographs that I took whilst … Continue reading On Safari : Part 1
Land of the Dumnonii
These three images were part of a set that I took whilst Mrs M and I were on a short break down in Devon. Neither of us had been down there for a good many years. The last time was probably when our daughter who is now 27, was a toddler. I think the impression … Continue reading Land of the Dumnonii
Looking forward to winter’s end.
It’s winter in the UK at the moment and this year there seems to be more bleak, grey days than I can remember we’ve had over the last few years. This bland, depressing time is sometimes spasmodically interspersed with days of eye-watering brightness, long shadows and a crisp coldness that quietly numbs the end of your … Continue reading Looking forward to winter’s end.
