Back in Cyprus


Back in Cyprus. Blue skies, sun and heat. Not too much tho', somewhere in the mid 20s. I could get used to this :-)

A photo of Carob flowers which, incidentally, have the most distinctive aroma!

Hey - connection at last

I've been unable to sign in and therefore have been locked out of blogger for months. Just looked at the blog on firefox and the option to sign in is back - you may see a post or 2 from  me in the near future.

Bet you're all glad about that?

For Chikashi


"Ok, that's too cool a photo not to upload on flickr and your blog!" Chikashi Miayamoto's comment on my new Strava profile. A silver medal ride in the Birmingham Division individual pursuit champs in 1980 (beaten by John Patston)

A belated 'Happy New Year' to my followers :-)

Back to Donegal

OK, so I can't go back to somewhere I've never been - but I have just been looking at a route for a 4-5 day bike tour next May. First thoughts -


View Ireland Tour draft 1 in a larger map

Looking forward to the craic :-)

Siesta



Sleeping away the afternoon in the shade on a hot summer's day - I wish!

So I develop this roll of film.......



from the Recesky that had been snapped on 'world toy camera day' and didn't quite get the results I was expecting. Similar results from a roll of HP5 from the same camera that I developed last night (though I haven't scanned these yet). Went and fetched the camera from the shelf - yes I know you all got there quicker than me - the lens is missing - *!!*#!*!!!!!
