OK, ok, I know I am short of material

 


Have not really been anywhere much but I promise that I won't snap up standing stones!

Wrong time of year

 


The sun has been shining which deceived me into riding the bike. It was so cold so we took off round the Castle tracks in Stormoway to be out of the cold wind. Lovely ride as it happens but I'm suffering for it today somewhat.

I don't like the sun for taking snaps. It's all too bright. The colours are too vibrant and what's more the Giro D 'Italia is happening. I have to keep abreast of such things while tinkering at home.

We know how to live. And play


 

A fine pitch for the local inter place match o'er at Gress with a great view of the sea and likely to be sprayed with sea water from time to time. A hardy lot.

I captured  this on the 1955 Minolta RF camera I have with Orwo N75 film. Nothing but the best.

I found more slides

 


Back in the day pre-post-pandemic. Pre Brexit and everything and before the new owner of the Harris Tweed Mill in Lewis sold this cloth and reverted to two or maybe three boring patterns, they used to have billions of patterns. I snook in there for a looksee before they disappeared. They were sold onto someone in Harris who now sells the stuff from there - along with other lovely new bright tweeds from other more forward looking mills on the island.

Forgot you all. sorry and everything

 


The sun has been shining in between the hail, rain and wind so I haven't taken much in the way of snaps. So here for your delectation a snap from a short lived slide film study - Fanks for the memory.

I shall go back to sleep now.

Facilities

 



Oh yes, there are facilities on the island. A  few anyway. 

We found these that day we went there - when someone smiled and everything. What a day! I shall write it in my diary. Well, I would if I had one. I did have one once but rarely looked in it to be honest. I have never met someone so disorganised as myself . Apart from other disorganised people - if they remember the right day to turn up or, forget the correct day and turn up on the day I thought it was meant to be. that sort of thing anyway.

The snap was taken on the same roll pf HP5+ in the Hassie as the ones the previous couple of days. Probably.
