A long absence

I have been absent for sooooo long.  Due to a problem that kept getting worse & worse, I was unable to interact with other blogs or read any comments or reply to them.

I finally fixed it.

I was thinking about starting a new blog it was getting so ridiculous.  But I’ve sorted it.

It will take a long time to catch up with you all, and I hope you are all still here.

Here a few pics –  playing with camera and new lens.  And a zoom lens.


It’s that time of year: flame trees and birds.

and my garden refracted in a rain drop catching sunlight on a stem of jasmine:


finally – my gorgeous fat fluffy cat watching….watching



I will be posting more – but now I’m headed out to Hyde Park.  The swans and ducks have babies!!!

    It’s good that you’re back, and as usual they’re great photos. I was bowled over by the shot of the honeybee heading in for the flower, just a little dark blip up in the corner….

  7. Great pictures. You could make a poster out of the second and third pictures of the honey eater and the flame tree flowers.


    • thanks, Graham. Posters, cards….well, I make made cards of them. Perhaps with this camera I might be able to make something more. Now, jsut to gather the finances together necessary for such projects…. 😀
