what, more cats?

Mmm, and a juicy pigeon too. Tobias has been after this fellow for a few days now. I think that a bird dumb enough to sit around like this deserves to get gobbled up. Watch out juicy pigeon...

goodbye car

Well, Black and White Photos of Toulouse Long Bank Holiday Weekend is over. This is something I took while over there though and now that the old Rover has covered its last kilometre (of 340-odd thousand), here is a fairwell.

I forgot to clarify that it is going to be Toulouse in black and white, though you may have noticed that detail already.

part tou

Two for the price of one today. I love the sight of pollarded trees - a typically french sign that spring is on the way. This is on the walk from the city centre towards le jardin des plantes.

toulouse photo weekend

We went to Toulouse a while ago to visit Murray. Now I need to practise black and white conversions. Toulouse Daily Photo Blog reminded me that it is called Pont St Pierre, I think that it is the newest bridge in the city...

welcome home

He was asleep upstairs on his bed. But with the sound of the car pulling up, the squeak of the gate, or just the key in the door, he is there to welcome me home. I love Tobit.

I took this on my way home. Hull University campus, Graduate Research Centre and the fusty geography and economics building. One for Dan then...

so long, and thanks...

What better way to follow up a couple of pints than with some fish and chips? Except our usual chip shop had run out of fish. That will teach us for drinking beer on a Monday night then...

time for a beer

D and I fancied - never mind that it was Monday - a beer. The only place to go for such a thing is the Gardener's Arms. This is a terrible picture, invaded by a shrub, but it was darker than it looks and in those circumstances, a handy wall is the best place to shoot from. eh?

photo shoot

I have been post-processing the pictures that I took yesterday afternoon for Mikol's business venture. She has been building up a stock of necklaces in preparation for a website launch and speaking to some local craft shops. Eventually. In the mean time I have been messing around with lighting, Nikon Capture, raw files, but no necks. So, how does the necklace look?

...Mikol goes away for a few days to a conference and everything just goes to pot round here. I am not going to explain this picture, but needless to say D and I were doing nerdy stuff with wires and software. mmmmm raw files.

this side of the moon

It was a little late to blog on Saturday by the time we got home from Jazz and Liza's. So Sunday is going to have to be a two picture day to make up. This was taken at 450mm equivalent with the (other) cheap zoom. Wow, the moon is closer than I thought...

So I took the picture, but phantasmion did the B&W conversion.

april showers

Ahh, the joys of British weather. I set of from home this morning in glorious sunshine and the weather has been to black-over-Bill's-mothers and back to clear blue at least once since then. Yesterday we had hail for lunch.

under the table

From under the glass table, red wine in a decanter. This was at dinner on a nice Friday. Because Friday evening is nice.

This is the Wilberforce Building, University of Hull. It is where I spent several hours during my degree course. It is also outstandingly ugly, so much so that it is a listed building.

What a great guy. He has the right bag, a rather different but rather nice camera and more to the point he is a wonderful food providing, Mac fixing, post processing, Adelphi club going slightly barmy friend. We went and took pictures - again - and it was fun. Tomorrow is going to be another good day.
