Another Dandelion

I seem to have a lot of these in the garden at the moment.


I only took my teeny weeny camera to the festival as I didn't want to lose my big one.

Some of the series that I will post soon would have looked better with a longer lens and longer shutter speeds :o(

Poop Poop!

The little train at Beale Park.


And that's your lot....well for now anyway ;o)

Pipe Monkey :(l)

Another of the statues at Beale Park.

My hours were upped this week to 6 hours a day, definitely be back to normal next week. It's been good to have a staggered rehabilitation back into the working environment.

I will be glad to get back to normal as I may be getting too comfortable with the shorter days ;o)


A flame in the garden, might have been better in the dark, oh well ;o)
