This is where I live and don't you forget it  there is usually two dogs, old one and a young one at this fence barking at whoever goes past. It used to be that the young one would be barking and saying " Look at me dad, am I doing it right? "  Now it seems as though the young one has taken over in charge of the place.

+Malgorzata Jachowicz  Thanks very much but I will be working from 2 o'clock until 10 o'clock this evening at the campsite by the beach. The work isn't too bad although it can be a little bit tiring.  You have a good weekend to!

A garden in Catalonia with some of the paraphernalia required to grow vegetables and one or two flowers. I like the rusty old metal watering can and as you can see that it looks like there are some potato plants that are just poking their heads out of the ground.

A little bit of 8mm movie magic from Vivian Maier the street photographer.
She was a nanny with a passion for photography and was as prolific as hell. She obviously found people incredibly interesting. This was the first time I saw any of the films that she made and I found it to be just lovely. I get the impression that she has a huge amount of empathy for the people that she is capturing in the street. She observed their foibles and idiosyncrasies and kept them for posterity.

This morning I started work at 6 o'clock and although I don't like getting up quite so early, it was good to see the sunrise . We have lovely blue skies down by the beach and it's going to be a great day. Really looking forward to having a day off tomorrow.

 I took the Sony NEX-6 camera out with me this morning  On the usual dog walk. I wanted to test out the Tamron  18 to 200 mm lens with a new adapter, the Meike  which lets me adjust the aperture and also does auto focus.

It really is very good to have the ability to change the aperture at the autofocus is dreadfully slow. It is useful if you have plenty of time but I can't help but miss the faster autofocus normally available with a Sony lens. After using this I'm tempted to sell the Canon mount lens and the adapter and get myself a proper Sony lens.

Publish your book on Kindle It is possible to bypass the traditional gatekeepers and publish your book yourself? Is it easy? yes and no... Easy to get the book on the Kindle Store, but then there is the hard work of writing a quality book in the first place and then you have to have more than one book and be able to get the world to know you have written some books so that you get a few sales and maybe loads of sales.

+David Allen Wizardgold That sounds interesting :D. The book I'm focusing on right now is from NaNo 2012. That will definitely need a rewrite :P. I don't do seat of the pants writing normally, but I don't really like to do too much pre-planning. I did that once, and I felt like I was in a box. But seat of the pants? It's too...wild :P.
