I have a feeling this will be a challenging year, maybe more than most. But we’ll get through – we always do. Somehow. Somehow this planet of ours keeps spinning on its axis, each perfect turn the makings of one more perfect day. What we do with that is up to us. Fortunately, we getContinue reading “Happy New Year!”
Spotted this young woman at a party a couple of years ago – always wanted to use this shot for something… I rather like how this has turned out… A late comment to add… whilst I have no tattoos myself, I realise now that at least part of the reason I like this photo soContinue reading “Party of three”

And we got into boats just like this, powered by shoulders and sweat and amazingly muscular thighs – that disembarked and pulled us throughContinue reading “Yangtze traffic”
