Avalanche Of Colour

The trees are still heavy with Spring blossom, but the slightest wind now brings an avalanche of colour.


Tweaking the colours brings out the brooding force of the clouds.

Home Sweet Home

A very unusual view of our house, spotted during our walk today.

Dark And Textured

It's dark and textured ... just like it was looking today.

Signs Of The Time

The latest collection. The even more idiotic "Quattro" has now joined the others.


Xan having a practice for looking mature.

Cruise Control 3

Yes, it must have been 2000. And this must have been Panama.

Cruise Control 2

The same cruise. That is the good ship Arcadia in the distance.

Cruise Control 1

The final details of our summer cruise came through today, so time to dip back into the archives. This is Antigua from a 2000 cruise.

A Bit Dark

After all these greens and yellows and reds ... time for a nice gloomy study.


All the different shades of green just seemed attractive.

Xan At Work

Alexander hard at his revision. Very early one morning.

Green Trees, Red Trees, Yellow Trees

Why should trees just be green?

Blurred Period 2.2

And a similar approach to the garden.

Blurred Period 2.1

I am going through another blurred period. This blur is created by the door's twisted glass.

The Famous Wet Balcony

The famous yellow balcony in the rain.

A Planning Workshop

Planning for "Five Go Mad In The Canary Islands" takes place in a pub deep inside the impenetrable moors of West Yorkshire.

Wednesday, 9 May 2007


A rare sight recently - heavy cloud. Although it did rain today, it was brief and lacking in either energy or application.

.... But Not Out

But Isobel gets up to fight another day.

Down ....

An adventure on the trampoline leads to a collapse ....

Wichita Linesman

"I am a linesman for the county, And I drive the mainroad, Lookin' in the sun for another overload, I hear you singing in the wire, I can hear you thru the whine, And the Wichita Lineman, is still on the line".

Dismantled Tramway

This is a picture of a planning application to move a public footpath which is pinned at the entrance to the woods a short walk away from where we live. You might need to enlarge the plans to see it, but where the path of the new footpath will go there is marked on the map "dismantled tramway". What is this? What tramway? Why a tramway? Could this have anything to do with mining and quarrying in the woods. Janie, I need your expertise in these matters.

It's the colours, it's the shapes, it's the richness of it all. True delight.

Spotted In Fixby

No idea what this is, but it was spotted in Fixby yesterday. Can anyone identify it?

Lines In The Sky

A bright blue sky provides a perfect canvas for these lines in the sky.

FOUND 1 : Walking With Confidence

  FOUND 1 : The joy of found photographs is that, whilst they provide a visual superstructure, you are free to construct your own backstory ...
