The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

[JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

The Sudden Inclusion of Photos

No, I’ve not got a new camera. Rather my Mother has finally entered the modern age and got herself a broadband internet connection. In the belief (perhaps even a mistaken one) that inclusion of lots of photos would impede her from reading my ramblings (even loading just text was too much for her dial-up some days), I’d avoided all but the occasional use of very small picture files to date.

So, provided that I find a faster way to do the photo-blogging thing, they may become a more regular feature.

Don’t expect the standards that you see on other blogs (such as here or here), mind. I have not an artistic bone in my body. I don’t do arty shots (or if I do it’s entirely an accident) and I don’t have any impressive equipment. The main feature that led me to choose our current camera was that it weighs only 104g.

I make no apology, however, that I am firmly one of the point and click brigade; in the realms of snap-shots just to illustrate where we've been, I'm happy that these pictures do the job.


  1. "it weighs only 104g" - reason enough in my opinion. Unless your a real snapper cheap n cheerful does it nicely

  2. Aw, shucks. Thanks for the vote of confidence in my photographic ability. I'm on a 1:10 ratio, taking lots of shots at different settings.
