Hello everyone,, hope everyone is doing well and they have some smiles in life.

Been a quick week,, loving the feeling of working in the garden again, remembering all the happy memories associated with it and so many smiles as i think.

Work is slow, nothing new there.

Walked one short walk,, summer sun is heading towards autumn sun more and more, suttle changes all around.

Farmers are busy, looks like a good harvest and as i walked i just keep on smiling.

I was asked once, if there was anywhere in the world, i could live, where would it be, my answer then is still the same as now,, where i live,,i would never want to move from here.

It is more than home to me, it gives me so much more than that, it gives me all the places i walk and take pictures off.

It gives me so many different things with in such a small area, most of all i feel safe and happy here.

I have never been able to sleep well, in the little travelling i have done, never found a bed as comfortable as my own, when i come back from anywhere, when i go to my room and put my stuff away, i just lie on my bed for a few minutes.

At this time of year, i use too spend about 3 weekends away over a 6 week period,was a great time i had, socializing with like minded people, sitting till it was daybreak the next day sometimes, just talking and others drinking, me i made sure everyone got too there rooms safe.

Next year i am going back to having that, i hope,, where i am in life now means i can,, i have not got the down days now, those ohh so sad days..

Life is so much better,, the road to happiness is one i am on and staying on..


Sometimes, you just try something, sometimes..

Do you miss something so much in life, that it keeps drawing you back to it, for i am at that point in life nothing bad, all good in fact, just growing vegetables.

Yes, my pleasures in life are that simple.

Weather has been rubbish for 3 days now, fields will be all wet again, mud sticking to boots, make you feel like you are walking in a pair of lead boots, as you try to pull them free at times.

Decided last year, when it gets to bad, i am just going to walk along the coast, chase the sunsets and waves crashing on the shore.

Watch all the drama of stormy seas from a distance, respect the sea to much, too get to close on days of big swells.

Like when my rivers are like that, no more will i walk near them, plenty of places, i can walk that are safe.

I sent another picture yesterday to someone, went from just wanting it as a screensaver to one that will be printed off, to hang on a wall.

Woman does a lot of judging of photoes in competition,more friends with her husband, who i sent the picture too in the first place.

Holiday over for a few weeks, got 5 more days left this year, more than enough for me.

Looked at a new desktop today, plenty of power in it, need it, but not in a hurry for it, good deal on it tempts me, but i never dive in, not my style to do that.

I saw a picture today, reminded me of Julie, long flowing red hair in the wind.
I loved to see that long hair on her, when the wind blowed all over the place, when i covered her breasts, during making love it was all over the place at times.

Funny how the craziest of things remind you of so much.


The birds on the river estuary, the sun hiding in the clouds, giving the colours in the sky and few beams, break through as well.
For all there was a lot of people around it was so peaceful, so perfect in many ways

I took this on Thursday night, been wanting to get a shot like this, nearly got what i wanted, but it gives me something to aim at now.

I think the shot i would really like is riding into the setting sun, not sure i will ever get it, but you never know.

Been a day of very heavy rain and wind, thought about going out, but never bothered in the end, might be better tomorrow

Been a while since i done 2 blogs in a day.

So been a day of rest, did go for a walk tonight, took the camera and walked down the road, just was to be one of those snap shot nights, been a while since i done that.

How much colder it was tonight, heavy jacket on and thought about my gloves.

How soon it will all change and i will walk below falling leaves, how the colours will all change and i will show my 3rd year of Autumn pictures.

But getting to the bottom of the road and taking the camera out i got a thought,, yes this idiot, never put a memory card in the camera,, so pissed of at myself turned around and went home.


The view from the top of the ruins of the castle.

I never thought it would look like this, was really happy when i saw it did, straight away, i just thought of a sunset, looking down the bay and the sun setting, yes i will stand here a few times and see if i can get it.

Been ages since i blogged in the morning, so use to doing so at night.

I had such a fantastic day yesterday. So many little highs, make for so many smiles in life.

Had planned in going out early the last 2 mornings, thankfully the sky was not looking good, when i looked out around 4am ish,, yes it can change quick, but might have been need sleep a little more, so went back to bed.

I did go out for the sunset last night, had other plans as well.

Wanted to go into, one of the old castles, i have shared and take some shot.

So as i was walking along the beach, nice breeze blowing and it was starting to rain.

Tide was going out and the beach was covered in seaweed, all washed up in the recent storm.

But i trudged along and got to where you climb up,, well walk up a steep path in parts, but it was an easy walk, no danger along here.

I saw a rocky outcrop and walked out, thought nice place for a picture or two sometime.

Got to the top, you can see more signs of the castle ruins, never been up here before.

Walking to where i think i can see, where the door is and then discover, it had been bricked up,, gutted.

Might need to think of taking a hammer and chisel with me next time, lol
But Health and Safety would be the reason and well that is fine by me.

One thing i did learn, was you could get a real nice sunset from here,, seen loads of pictures of sunsets with the castle in them, but never none from here.

But on the way down, got my first of the year,, nice little patch of fungi growing, never thought it would be here i got it as well.

So lying on the ground and taking a few pictures, seemed the right thing to do.

Had got all the macro gear together for such times and where is it all sitting on a shelf at home.

So now i no, the fungi is appearing and will now start to go off on hunts for it.


Another first one,never sure there of names, keep meaning to get a book.
But for some reason, i am drawn too looking for them, keeping my eyes on the ground mostly, but then you see the gems on the trees growing.

Such simple fun for a simple man

I defragged the computer today over 7hrs the programme ran, but things are running a lot better now,

Been a great day today for so many little reasons, got to talk to Whisper today, told me tell anyone that reads that life is just very hectic just now and will pop in.

No work for me, next 2 nights, need to plan my last few holidays as well.

Was thinking about how long it has been since i gambled, think it is over 4yrs.

But not so sure, i loved going into a bookmakers, put my bet on and walk out, never stayed once i had.

I could not be bothered listening to the sound of fruit machines or any off the machines like that, never ever put a penny in one off them, never attracted to them.

But another thing in the past, got a lot of those.


I want to climb down an shoot right across, the dam, need the wellies on as, into the river a little, i will need to go.

We use to swim there as well, walked across the dam a few times, thought about that as well, the large tree, that is in the middle of the field, i would like to get closer to and take a picture or two.

But there is a few bits that i have explore more.

Another from last week,, not long till the sun rises, crazy how all thoughts are forgotting when you are watching the scene develop.

Just realized something, that is when my mind is not racing around all the time,, that is when my brain gets its rest.

How did i not really see this before, i always say all is forgotten about when i am looking through that lens, now i actually get the true meaning too me .

2 night week at work again this week, lack of work again, seriously hate that, hope it improves very soon.

Walked in the wind and rain this morning, so wet, i never even took one picture

But still just good to get out,, now as i write this the first rays of sun, i have seen all day is getting mixed with the rain,, never lasted long as they are now gone.

I wish sometimes i could switch my brain off or just slow it down sometimes, seems to always be going at full speed, so many things, run around in there all the time.

At least i do not dream in my sleep as much now, so i get more rest there.

Do you ever have a dream and then a while later, life seems to be like that dream a little.

I have had that a few times in life.

Always good things as well.

But as usual i wonder off, as i write.


One from the other day, will soon be time, when the bees are gone, just the cycles of the seasons.

Been a great year to just sit and wait for them to come too me, wait and watch, then blast away, hoping to get one picture.

Last night i decided, no plans to make, weather looked as if it would be bad all day, it was, rained the whole day, not cold though.

I was only out once, unusual for me, i went out to lift some potatoes for dinner.

I usually would have just thrown on the wets and walked, but not today, wimped it lol.

Done a bit of reading, bought some bird food and cleaned all the camera gear.

Looked at some other things too buy that are on my list, just keep making sure i am getting what i need.

The only thing i might get soon i forgot about is a filter for the macro lens, it might be very useful, when i am shooting the fungi.

I also got a email from someone, answered it , with a no thanks, stange never thought i would do that,but twice she messed me about, my old scrabble friend i fell in love with, only for her to tell me she was married, things ended then.

A while later she texts, she was leaving, will you meet me, then she texts, she is staying, then the same again.

Lessons are taught to me to learn. I learn.

I never give love any thought now, might say love you too a friend, whether it will be said to a lover, well not losing sleep over that.

I got asked, the other morning, when coming back from taking pictures, is that all i do.

Yes photography does take up most off my life, but i do other things.


A shot of the river, never visit this bit enough, but yesterday i did, got a few nice shots.
I stood many a time watching salmon, just the dam, when the water was a little higher.

I stood with someone, one night as well, stood below the stars, walked from the pub for some fresh air, after a meal.

Sitting with feet over the wall, holding hands and the sounds off the water as it went over the dam.
