Lens - Thematic Photography
Washington's Jonas has reached the UK and has now been named Storm Gertrude. The strong winds and rain make it an unsuitable day for outdoor photography or for wearing sunglasses. However I found a model prepared to show off a pair with engraved lenses. Thi...

Tires - Thematic Photography
I was surprised to find how often tyres appear in my photographic archive although not in a tired theme. I'm old enough to have ridden a bike before pneumatic tyres were common place but I'll leave it to my daughter to demonstrate the hard variety on her bi...

Bare - Thematic Photography
The rain has stopped at last and cold weather has arrived, it's not the climate for stripping off. However some shrubs even look good when denuded. Redwood At this time of year before next year's crop gets established a field may be bare but it's far from b...

Blue - Thematic Photography
And still it rains! After the wettest December since records began  1910,  it's enough to make anyone feel blue. I didn't really know where to start especially as 19 of my earlier thematic posts have included things blue before. Of course the answer was rig...

Mugs - Thematic Photography
We have a variety of mugs 'scattered' around the house. One celebrates a 1000 years of brewing, but for many years now it has just been used as a Storage jar Then there are the pewter tankards that I acquired in Norway back in the 1980s. Unfortunately these...

Winter Scenes - Sunday Stamps II
I looked for something depicting winter storms but came up with a blank. I thought I was going to forced to show something from Winter Olympics like this one from Cortina, Italy. San Marino - issued 15 December 1955 To find non-sporting winter scenes I fini...

Cycles - Sunday Stamps II
As I couldn't find tricycles or any motorbikes I had to settle for bicycles. I've always regarded cycling as a form of savage amusement as I learnt to ride on a fixed wheel bike and pedalled backwards too often by accident, with often spectacular results - ...

Castles and Palaces - Sunday Stamps II
As my first stamp will show, I've learnt not to make assumptions this week. Tunisia I thought this was an impressive castle until I discovered it wasn't a castle at all. The Skifa Kahla is the ancient gate to the coastal city of Mahdia, the old part of whic...

Favourite choice - Sunday Stamps !!
With so many available and after 36 hours of rain it was difficult to make a choice. As I have recently transferred all my American stamps to a stock book and arranged them in date of issue sequence I decided to include just one. USA - George Washington 192...
