Ghostbusters (2016): A Short Review

A short review of the new Ghostbusters movie: it’s great but it could and should have been better.

Photo of the Weather Station in Sidlesham Reserve

The fine weather today makes me long for more. This is a photo of the weather station in the RSPB reserve near Birdham, taken on an equally fine (if colder) day back in March.

This afternoon I snapped this picture of a dandelion growing out of a wall. I took the photo in a rush and ended up with a bit of my jacket in the frame. I tried to retake the picture when I returned home the same way. By then, with it being a dandelion clock, its […]

“Behind” The Scenes

Ingrid snapped me snapping the bluebells. For sensitive souls, I also include a censored version!

Slindon, April 2016

Yesterday evening we went out to see the bluebells in Slindon, near Chichester. There are lots of places all over England with great carpets of bluebells, but at Slindon there is a route through the woods that allows you to suddenly stumble over them. The effect is marvellous and photos don’t really do it justice. […]

Foxy Foxy

This little chap is one of three cubs that live in the hedges behind the car park at work. Normally his brothers/sisters are out playing too but today they weren’t around. They must all be pretty close to full-grown now. This one had a good scratch of his fleas – one of his legs was […]

Lunchtime Badminton

Played badminton with some work colleagues at lunchtime. It was great to get out into the sunshine and muck about for a bit. Unfortunately it was a bit too windy so it was pretty hard to get any rallies going.

Ducklings on the Canal

Awww… Reminds me of York. I lived on the campus there; the colleges surround a big lake populated by many ducks and geese. And come the spring, their ducklings and goslings appeared too. This photo was taken on a walk down the canal with colleagues on Thursday afternoon. I’d not been down there since January […]

Chichester in Sunshine 

Snapped this while out walking in the sunshine in Chichester, for no particular reason other than that it looked so bright and cheerful. I thought I’d whip the phone out and snap a memory of the good times before those April showers kick in!

A Little Surprise

A photo of a toy truck I found under the sideboard in my flat.
