A Scottish holiday

We regularly go away for a Scottish holiday. If you’ve ever been to Scotland you will know the weather can be …unpredictable. You might need everything from suncream to a raincoat in a single day. Our recent getaway just as lockdown restrictions were being lifted resulted in a nice break. So grateful to be able …

Actually managed to get out

Actually managed to get out ….. for the first time in a while. Due to the easing of Covid related restrictions we drove down to the beach and had some nice sea front exercise.

Is the end in sight?

Is the end in sight? The end to lockdown that is. There are some quite confusing reports in the media regarding this, but there is also the implication that we (in the UK) could look at a potential relaxing of the rules. I’m sure everyone would welcome less restrictions. What form that will take is …

GAS and Covid 19

Printing

Printing is something that is becoming rarer these days. Most images languish on a hard drive or get buried somewhere in a smartphone album. When we cant find anything else to do we might look through them. Like when waiting at the doctor or dentist, you get the idea. Now it took us a while …

Training

After the relaxation of our recent cruise it was time for me to go and get a job which involves a long period of pretty intensive training. This will probably mean that for the foreseeable future blog posts could be a bit thin on the ground. In case you were wondering the job is not …

Durham Cathedral

A recent visit to Durham Cathedral allowed a brief photo opportunity. We had some family visiting so I wouldn’t class it as a photographic outing, but it did whet the appetite for a return trip. The Cathedral can be busy with tourists so I would avoid peak season for photography purposes. If your going just …

Roaming in Rome

Roaming in Rome – an day excursion on our recent cruise: If you have had the pleasure of booking a cruise the second thing on your list (after deciding where to go) is what excursions you do. Booking our cruise so far in advance, the excursions hadn’t actually been released, so it was a return …
