Anglesey Abbey Interiors
It's a very long time since I went inside the house at Anglesey Abbey, and certainly before the National Trust allowed photography in their properties.  Having played with the Infra Red camera outside, this seemed like a good time to shoot colour.  All pict...

Anglesey Abbey in Infra Red
It was such a beautiful day on Saturday that I decided to take my Infra-Red camera (a newly converted Fuji X-E2) to Anglesey Abbey.  It's quite a while since I did any IR photography, but the X-E2 produced some lovely results.  Not all the Fuji lenses are I...

Water Baby
Last week Izzi and I had a "Grand Day Out" in Norfolk, principally to do some shopping at the wonderful Roy's of Wroxham .  Apparently it was "essential" to buy lots of "stuff" before the new University term, although I'm sure it wasn't like this in my day....

Wimpole Estate Park Run
On Saturday morning I accompanied Izzi to Wimpole Hall where she was taking part in a Park Run .  Coming from a school where cross country running was used as a punishment, I was completely ignorant of these events which are happening weekly - and completel...
