2016 A year in a post

2016 was such a bad year for famous deaths and incredible (in my opinion) political decisions and some are still grating now, months after they occurred – but I see that as a plus point in some respects, as it means that I still have passion and energy about some things.

I love articles like these

it shows how creative folk can be! You can just imagine the request of this guy in Paris – “Scuse me, can you take a photo of me “holding” ┬áthe Eiffel Tower please” Then he gets a chance to look a the shot and probably wouldn`t want to ask again!! – so, he turns to […]

Ever given a thought as to who took THAT photo?

So, as the days roll and time passes us by, we are subjected to a million and one visual cues which may or may not strike a chord with our psyche. Every now and again however, we get “told” to look at an image, or one metaphorically hits us square round the chops and shouts […]
