Up Ness way

You see these piles of rocks all over the place on the west side of Lewis. I suppose the stones have been harvested from the croft land and then left as agri-sculptures.

Water 'babes' in the Box

Obviously these boys have nothing better to do than pose in front of my old Box camera after a spot of falling in the sea while trying to surf on the local beach this morning.

Ok, the pic is not sharp. The 'camera' [Kiev 6c] is shot with holes in the shutter curtain and film transport issues - all of which wasn't really helped by using Lucky100 film.

He's not too well these days but found the energy to go out with a fishing rod to the end of the old concrete peir.
Would love to know what you feel about this one.
