1045/22nd August 2023 If I was less inept, I could have captured the sound of this morning's cool breeze that rustled the trees behind me. As yet so far as I am aware, there is no way to spontaneously capture the delightful scent of freshly mown grass. This morning was perfection! . The object of … Continue reading Go in safety
14th April 2023 An 8-minute trip to the vet wasn't likely to offer new photographic opportunities, given that we have driven up and down this route numerous times recently, so for once I didn't grab the camera. But taking pictures has become a compulsion. The iPhone went to work. Which produced a curious result... . … Continue reading Squirrely?
Battenkill River, 24th March 2023 A few more photographs from our latest drive. Often when we go off on one of these outings, we take random turns without worrying where the road may take us.
