Not much leisure

This is George. He was putting the finishing touches to his Leisure23 boat he has lurking outside his des-res just down the road from the house called Timbukthree in New Tolsta. New Tolsta is north of North Tolsta and thereby hangs a tale that I really know little of the clearances and the like.

The boat George acquired a while ago but needs a little tlc to get it back to it's best. Like letting the water out of the inside, a rudder and steering stick and a couple of hatches that got blown away in the wind in the recent gales. Apart from that, it's almost ready to go.

I like George. He has done some epic bike rides - all self supported - apart from the one when I supported him as he came out of a bar in Stornoway after he had just finished the end to end [of the UK]. I poured him into the car and brought him home. I think he deserved the celebration to be honest. Hopefully new adventures will happen with the boat. One day.

I'm working on it

I'm working on this snap. I lithed it up on old Agfa MCC then promptly managed to crease the thing. Can't waste it so the wax is coming out!

Love the image though. Hope you do too.

That Croation Man from Croatia

Mr Denis has be posting some images from his tyme here on the island. Always interesting to see what Johnny foreigner makes of the place. The thing I like are his images are sooooo much better than my snaps. Ah well.

This is one of my snaps of Mr Denis. Look at the link for his :-)

I have taken to processing up down the stairs. Not just for the sake of doing but as I move, gracefully, from the upper floors of the hoosey to the lower. I clutch my voluminous skirt out to one side [according to the direction of the wind at the time] and slightly bounce on the ball of my feet on the stairs. Oh, it feels so very lovely. Only, yesterday the wind was a tad brisk and I had to put in a couple of reefs. Actually, if I am honest I did more than that, I wore trousers. With flares mind you, but only small flares. I descended safely you will be glad to hear.

Oh please, you know I don't take landscapes! Denis, the Croation man from Croatia made me take it. OK?
Now look at this please.

When bad is good

Nice snap don't you think? The visitor sat for me and kept on breathing and everything. Oh, it please me and all. Fair warms the cockles of my heart. I took that! Did you realise?

Ooh, this is nice too. Grain and all that sort of thing.

Nicely out of focus but the light, the light.

All imaged with the old Kiev60 GP3 film and Rodinal

Apparently this is nice

I posted this on Faceplant. And lots of peeple liked it up. Amazing what a crappy snap from a crappy plastic camera and cheap copy-film can do.
