I was challenged by the wonderful and prolific +Annette Junge Daugaard over on fb to take part in the 5-day #‎artchallenge‬ and post one picture each day for five days.

As I have been very lax of late, I thought I would take her up on it and post across G+, fb and Twitter as well. :)

So here is day#1, a picture taken at a car showroom - Any guesses on the make and model?

It used to be that the Wood Pigeons had first choice of all bird seed, closely followed by Collared Doves but since the Rock Doves have arrived, they completely rule the roost!

The Starlings never miss an opportunity to get in quick and pinch the best bits, scattering everything else aside, especially now when there are hungry chicks to feed.

Another local event which is always well attended and generates money for local charities. This year's nominated Rotary charity is:
The Haven in Titchfield.
 
The Haven is the UK's only specialist breast cancer charity that offers, completely free of charge, bespoke one-to-one support to improve the quality of life of anyone affected by breast cancer.

A good day out if you are in the area. :)

Typical!
I normally take my camera everywhere but today I was running late for a Doctor's appointment and I thought there probably wouldn't be many people around today. So as I head for the King of rolls (crusty cheese and pickle), I passed a scene-of-crime van and then find the local Martin's newsagent, taped off with Police tape as workmen fitted a new front door. Rumour has it that they were broken into yesterday and somebody liberated their stock of cigarettes.

Yay!

The Portsmouth News used my photo on the front page of tonight's Fareham edition of their newspaper, albeit without any accreditation. :(

Story
Tagline
An altruistic empath with a love of photography and nature.
Introduction
Born in Portchester, went to Manor House, Castle Junior and Portchester Community School.

Went to Cornwall School, Dortmund for A-levels, worked at Haslar, then for John Brown and lastly EMC Computers (UK) Ltd.

Becoming infatuated with G+ and photography and have been snapping with Minolta SLRs since I was 10. Usually nature, often birdlife, sunsets, all flora and fauna and now wanting to expand my horizons into macro, portrait and street photography. 

Looking for a good lottery win to release my spirit (or a generous benefactor!)

I felt compelled to write a review to counter Poppy's appalling one as I have been using this establishment for well over 20 years now and have never had nor seen an experience such as the one that was described. The atmosphere is always friendly and the whole shop behave as one big family, with many young employees learning their trade and going on to have successful careers or starting their own businesses. There is a core backbone of excellent hairdressers/barbers that have happily been there for many years and the waiting room is often well stocked with people waiting for their favourite, although all are equally capable. My entire family have been regular Customers and both my kids had their first haircuts here, accompanied by a lollypop reward afterwards. My little lad (now 17) has had a range of styles from mock-mohawks and close shaved crops to careful preservation of his now precious fringe. So, in summary, if you want a technically challenging, fancy style, ask them and I am sure they will give you their honest opinion and know their own limits and will advise accordingly. If you want a good, honest, family hairdressers to suit the entire family, go to PJ's and I don't think you will be disappointed. Just ask the generations of families and loyal customers that return week after week, year after year.

Not really a review but I have just found a letter that I wrote in 1978 when staying over on a school trip - Glad to see that you are still doing a fantastic job this many years on. Some great memories! :)
