Didn't know that cats have a herding instinct. HHHCB has anyway. Doesn't chase the things but slowly moves them down the road - back to their housey.

Them chickns are out most days at the moment. Free range and all that. Not sure where their eggs are lain mind.

Men of fish

Met these delightful chaps on my short excursion down North Lochs way. Just brought a catch in - to bait lobster pots!

Printed today on water colour paper with cyanotype emulsion under a UV light.

Remember that snap?

This one.

I know I said I would show you the Vandyke brown printed version. I've changed my mind. Sorry about that but I didnae like it.

Printed it with cyanotype though - and tone it in green tea. What more can you have?

Let me take you around Stornoway 1. Or, why I don't live there.

What do mean you missed that bit?

No I have not

Of course I have not given up - photographing or anything else for that matter. Just been a bit more contemplative. Or something.
I found this snap on a film [foma 400 rated at 800] so developed it in dilute Firstcall Superfine - till it was 'done'. It worked I think.
I used to do more of this stand development but for some reason I seem to have left it behind so to speak. Maybe I'm too impatient these days.
I shall listen to this.

Old bikers

Tis a bit like Belgium in the bike world only, with more style and less rain.
We were there that year - whenever it was.
We are going to the English event next year.
