Look where we've been and everything. The arena on the side of the loch near toon. Horses inside and out. leaping about, trotting and pooing a lot. Having their toe-nails polished, tails brushed and what have you.

The judgey people were well excellent too with a fine line in hats to brighten the days proceedings. I liked the hats particularly. See, that's a judgey person in the ring - with hat.

It is he

Bumped into him and his lovely Mum in toon yesterday so I snapped him while he was there. I think it captures him very well.

Don't tell me we have not got classy architecture - if you call Brutalism classy that is.

One mad dog

I know Boysie. He slobbers over me from time to time and it's not very easy to stop him doing so. But he makes a fine portrait.

I had a Pentax Espio Mini with me and it seemed to do the job.

There he is, Boysie the Great Dane with Chris his plaything!

I think I prefer cats.

A binscape with smudge and related development information which may or may be useful.

Bin Scape with big thing in background [and smudge].

Not sure how that happened but the Castle seemed to loom there. The smudge came from goodness knows where - which is a bit unfair as the old place is looking spick and span in and out these days.

I'd sloshed the film - Foma400 rated at 200 -in Rodinal 1 :50 which seems to work ok although without the sharpness of Tmax400 for example but a lot less cost. Been trying Tmax developer with Foma400 and recently was hoping to use Firstcall developer too - but can't find any suitable times. Maybe I might wing it!

This was me yesterday. I'd been getting ready to go out to meet my dear Eve for our annual savoury cream tea picnic harbour-side in memoriam of my late mum. The camera was there sitting on the table side. I took a snap [developed the film quickly] and went out. This is what that snap looks like. I rather like it. Captured the essence of my personality and possibly the personality of my essence too.

Found this lively Glaswegian trying to grab an electronic facsimile of a pile of old stones the other day. Whilst he was awaiting peeps to get out of his shot I was waiting for the flippin stones to get out of mine.

Nice chap mind. The stone is to your left!
