Olympics - Sunday Stamps II
We rented our first television to watch the 1960 Olympics in Rome where Cassius Clay won his gold medal. We little thought then that he would become so great. The stamps I have to show from those Games are these in a old (1963) album I was given -  Russia -...

Shapes - Sunday Stamps II
I guess I gave the game away when I showed The Endless River album from Pink Floyd last week. It doesn't seem 50 years since they began. Six  stamps were issued on 9 July 2016 to commemorate this milestone - or should I say, 'another brick in the wall?' Gre...

Horses - Sunday Stamps II
This proved a harder theme that I thought as I have used all my stamps of real horses before. However Iceland and Sweden rode to the rescue with a horse or two, even if the Iceland stamps show a pony. Iceland - Icelandic pony 1958 My Swedish stamps are slig...

Trademark - Thematic Photography
We see many names and symbols that we immediately recognise. However we all confuse trademarks, logos and signs frequently not even knowing the difference. Many of the photos I show on Carmi's weekly challenges are things I see on my daily walk to fetch a n...
