Fish in the sea - Sunday Stamps II
I've gone fishing in Romania this week although all my fish may be found in wider surroundings. Romania issue a set of 8 fish stamps on May 10 1964; here are five of them. Romania - 1964 5 bani - Scorpaena Porcus, the black scorpion fish. It's found in the ...

That Summertime Feeling - Sunday Stamps II
After 20 hours of continuous rain it's great to get 'That summertime feeling' again. On 2 August 1994 the Royal Mail issued a set of 5 stamps entitled 'The Four Seasons. Summertime. Events.' Unfortunately I have only three of them. Great Britain The 19p sta...

Food - Sunday Stamps II
This week's food and/or drink theme proved harder than I thought. I had to visit the local market where I knew there would be plenty to chose from. The coin and stamp stall came up trumps again with vegetables from Romania issued in 1963. Romania - 1963 Eve...

Animals in the wild - Sunday Stamps II
I looked for a lion stamp as a tribute to Cecil. Unfortunately I could not find one, nor one of a dentist in the wild. Czechoslovakia has some fine animal stamps. Here are four that I like in particular. Wild Cat & Beaver Brown Long-Eared Bat & Marmot You n...

Say it with flowers - Sunday Stamps II
The envelope containing my Fathers' Day card from the USA this year arrived late (12 days in the post). However the stamps more than made up for that. USA - 2015 I recently discovered that Bulgaria is one of the most important rose breeding countries in Eur...

Grocery store finds - Thematic PHtography
In today's world of supermarkets I wondered whether the theme this week should really be 'Find a grocery store.'  That would be a hopeless task for me as I am not welcome on shopping trips when my wife is looking to stock up with food. I did sneak off with ...

Where You Work - Thematic Photography
As I have retired 'Where You Work' is not an easy theme for me. I guess I shall have to say that it's gardening that takes my time. Foxglove This is the type of gardening I like - just put in one  and let the plants do all the work. Wheelbarrow (against the...

Retro - Thematic Photography
I had difficulty finding shots that are truly 'retro' but here's a kitchen window that probably qualifies - from as recent as the early 1990s. All we can say now to this is 'Yuk!' I'm not allowed however to quote a date for this retro ride. The driver might...

Spontaneous - Thematic Photography
When I'm on my morning walk I get flashed at regularly. It's not a pretty sight - one day the (a) culprit will come to grief. 4 vehicles an hour trigger this sign associated with an advisory 40 mph speed restriction through the bends between the woods on ei...

Is it a bird or is it  a plane? Carmi's theme for Thematic Photography this week was 'Sky.' The day after I posted my entry this floated by. By the time I had grabbed my camera and was in a position to shoot. the 'wing' had begun to separate from the 'plane...
