I just love old steam driven traction engines. I offer this up for your entertainment.

An afterthought with this shot…You spend a fortune on camera and glass,and turn the shot into a pencil drawing…I must be mad 😉

My other big pastime is cycling I took this on a visit to the Lee Valley Velodrome in London. I even got to cycle around it for an hour. One of the bucket list.

Waiting to fight. That’s what this guy was doing. I loved the detail in the chainmail in this shot. To my mind the people in the distance give a clue to the anticipation even though you can’t see this guys face.

Ok I have a little weakness. I do enjoy a whisky now and again. My last one was 3 weeks ago at a whisky tasting in Oslo. I will at least share the picture I took with you. However I’ve still some Monochromian’s I’d like to raise a glass…or two with.

I usually shy away from using HDR. I’m not really a fan. However I do think some shots are worth the effort so to speak. This is a shot I took in Sweden a few weeks ago. I love the bikes and, the signs on this hut. I’ll leave you to use Google translate to find the meanings. Happy hunting.

Not quite”It” but I’m calling this “Maybe”. This loving couple caught my eye outside a restaurant on the Swedish island of Koster. They are really an advert for Ice-cream.

The light from my reading lamp falling on my pillow caught my eye while getting ready for bed one evening this week. It’s another of my “Things that go unnoticed series.” So look around you.
