I had hoped upon retirement that I may have been able

to sell a few photos to pay for equipment. 

Pretty much what I used to do back in the 1980s

when taking wedding photos.

There are too many people who think photography is luck…

and to some extent it is. 

Right place, right time, right settings.



Earlier this year I watched as a visitor to my display raved over this photo. 

He couldn’t, or said he couldn’t believe it was a photo. 

Travel is on my  bucket list.

 This post has been interrupted by talking

to our South African Guide about our 2020 visit.

I could cheerfully hang this shot on my wall.

Trouble is blue doesn’t go well with our colour scheme.

It would be great to be able to fund camera equipment from photo sales.

So that’s my bucket list…or a portion of it.





Homemade hand mades….mostly.

Was this wooden water pipe handmade….possibly.

A community group assembled these planter boxes

with the aid of a few power tools.


Rough and ready but it is the first thing

I remember making for a wee Brandy pup in 1988. 

In 2016 it was replaced with…

with a newer model for a newer pooch. 

The old pooch gave it her seal of approval.

Candi even has a verandah in front. 

Really I decided not to cut the timber

and it has been a real bonus for her. 


But Taji’s kennel was the first and biggest one I made.

Big enough  to cater for visitors.
