Xmas Warm Up.

Tuesday 21st November 2017.

My city like many others throughout the country have just opened their German markets and any other related shows. Southampton has the flying Santa sleigh as shown below. Coming this weekend the appearance of the Coca Cola lorry is on show at the West quay shopping mall.

The videos I have posted are very short with an Xmas theme. I haven’t put music because I don’t think is right just yet. Anyway one video does have a little melody. Enjoy.

WPC – Rounded and Nanowrimo 2017

Thursday October 26th 2017

Rounded
Goodbye, straight lines. Hello, curves.

Nanowrimo November 2017. Yes once again it is nearly that time of year again, and stupidly I have signed up for it. I am using this photo challenge post to let you know that I am going to attempt to complete the required task. I have a title and a story line but I am not sure if I have enough to complete the 50000 word project. I am hoping this will get me back into doing regular posts and updates.

My Christmas project has been decided and I have started researching.

New Camera… Ooh Shiny

Saturday 19th August 2017

Ooh, Shiny!

Diversions, distractions, and delightful detours.

These pictures were some of the first taken by my new camera. A Nikon Coolpix B500 something ..something etc. HD videos and many settings yet to understand. Initial view is I am very pleased. Have more pictures in my folders but I thought these were a good start. Some of an Abbey and grounds. A few macro, very pleased with the result. I love macro…when they work that is.

My Birthday Treat Part 1

Wednesday 18th July 2017

London Trip

Coca Cola London Eye

Last day of June was a big birthday for me and I was given a surprise treat, a surprise trip. I was taken on a train journey to London. What made this special was I haven’t been on a train for many years, apart from a few local, small, short distance steam trains. The day had been planned out and our journey started at Waterloo. We walked across Waterloo bridge and made our way to Trafalgar Square, Whitehall (Downing St.) Visited my second home Buckingham Palace. (joking) St.James park. I eventually did something I have been wanting to do since it was opened, the London Eye, or since 2015 proper title is Coca Cola London Eye. It was very expensive but very worthwhile and enjoyable. Happy bunny now.

Trafalgar Square was a surprise for me because the last time I visited, which by the way was many years ago has become a market. Acrobats and pavement artists. Also several visual artists portraying Star Wars characters, see if you can see how it is done. At first view they seemed very impressive but as one gets nearer one could see they were rather tacky. Their costumes were poor and their masks often exposed their necks or other parts of their heads. Bottom line I have seen better. I must say though I did enjoy the all.

More Scribbling-Northern Lights.

Friday 7th April 2017

First Book One of Three.

When I first read the Golden Compass(Northern Lights) I realised that there were two other follow on books, so had to get them and promptly read them. I thoroughly enjoyed them, they were like a cheesy biscuit, ‘moreish’. I enjoyed the style of writing and the imagination of the writer. I would recommend these books to everyone regardless of your personal genre. But must say, these books are classed as children’s fantasy but I would say older child, Harry Potter age.

I also watched the film, trailer above for those of you that haven’t, and I would go as far to say that it was very good and a great comparison to the book. Again I would suggest watching it if you haven’t already. If you do decide to do both – read and watch, then may I say ….Enjoy.
