A shameful confession

A shameful confession

Pathetic confession time. When I was little I loved Shakin Stevens.


Celebrating The Pope’s Visit

Celebrating The Pope’s Visit

To celebrate the visit of His Holiness The Pope to the UK, including my home city of Glasgow I thought I’d have a look through some of my images of his home Vatican City.


A rose and a kiss

When we were in Budapest we went for a sightseeing cruise along the Danube.  We passed several other ships including these two.  It’s a lovely river to have a pootle along, and I’ll just bet that the people on these ships were having a great time. Tweet This Post

First photo in a while.  Have been learning how to use Aperture and then working through the thousands of images sitting in the folders.  And of course I’ve been out on EuroFifty taking some photos as well. This is one from EuroFifty – our Grand Tour was just a couple of weeks ago and we […]

Race Day

When life gives you lemons…

When life gives you lemons…

New Year in Denmark

New Year in Denmark

To start our EuroFifty campaign – trying to visit all 50 countries in Europe in one year – we spent Hogmanay in Copenhagen. Being the party people that we are and with Darren suffering from the cold from hell we saw in the New Year in our hotel room.  This turned out to be a […]
