A Photo Farrago

A few pictures from my comings and goings this week. It's been quite dull.

Two high speed bursts on Blairmount duck pond produced these nine pictures

Bye bye for now


  1. I love this series, Jim! The black cat in your first photo brings back fond memories for me...I had a beautiful black cat with copper eyes for 14 years. She was precious. The robin is gorgeous!

    1. Thanks Linda, I too had a black cat. He was called Guinness. Black cats are lucky.

  2. I miss robins and wrens - none this far north though.
    The bridge - nice. Lovely reflections, you were pretty close to the edge there!
    Don't let those cats in, they'll never go home then :)
    Oh and I don't think it's possible for any gull, anywhere, to be anything, but utterly photogenic.

  3. PS: what is just not right about the pheasant photo? What am I missing? I meant to mention before......

    1. I'll admit the pheasant and the robin appear to have too much colour but I can promise they are both un-enhanced. I myself who has a red/green deficiency in my eyesight can even see how the red appears to be too bright. Perhaps the light of the day has something to do with it. I often enhance pictures, but not in this case.

  4. A lovely part of the country. Shows how mild it's been when the daisies are still out and looking so fresh.

    1. Cheers Bob, the port is always worth a visit whatever the weather.


Thanks for all your comments. I may not get to reply to them all, but you may be sure they'll be appreciated.
