We are not going to let a little dampness spoil the day. A walk along the dunes at a local beach blew the cobwebs away.

Perking up

Did I tell you I had a nice day the other day? I did didn't I.?
I should take this camera, the Perkeo, out more often as I like what it sees. This was on this island I might add. it's a favourite of mine - even when the cafe is closed - as it was that day. As you may know, the place, the Isle of Lewis, is littered with old derelict old houses. What you may not know is that there are new houses going up all o'er the place. Sadly, many of them are merely holiday homes.

Mission to Pole, with Horse

Had a lovely day out pointing my Voigtlander Perkeo this way and that. This was one place I pointed it purposefully and the horse smiled. I think.

It's on the other side of the water thereabouts from The Stones and everything.

Busy day

I may not be at my best today as yesterday was busy. perhaps too busy.
Shot two sheets of 4x5 film, two 4x5 glass plates and then developed them. next coat some vandyke emulsion on paper and expose them in the sunlight. Didn't like them so coated some cyanotype and exposed that.

HHHCB the cat didn't move.

Then we went off with The Crofter and picked up the settee we had bought from Alex Boyd, put it on the trailer and brought it home. since The Crofter had to go and work Eve and myself extracted the old settee and re-sited the new one - having o take a door off in the process!

The settee is nice.
We'd like to wish Alex Boyd all the very best in his new ventures on the mainland with his lovely partner Jessica. We hope to see them again soon.
