Didn’t get home today until late, and man has the weather changed! Temperatures way down, the wind blowing a hooley and now rain as well. It wasn’t a bad morning, but can’t do photography at work! So this evening I needed the ‘creative’ bit of my brain and came up with the following. The balls magnification properties are quite funky I think.
An ISBN is an International Standard Book Number. ISBNs were 10 digits in length up to the end of December 2006, but since 1 January 2007 they now always consist of 13 digits. ISBNs are calculated using a specific mathematical formula and include a check digit to validate the number. Each ISBN consists of 5 elements with each section being separated by spaces or hyphens. Three of the five elements may be of varying length: • Prefix element – currently this can only be either 978 or 979. It is always 3 digits in length • Registration group element –…
A colouring book is a type of book containing line art to which a reader may add colour using crayons, coloured pencils, marker pens, paint or other artistic media.

Le Vicomte de Bragelonne ou Dix ans plus tard is a novel by Alexander Dumas. It is the third and last of the d’Artagnan romances, following The Three Musketeers and Twenty Years After.

I have 2 of the french books, would love to find the rest.

I went to a party last night and am having a recovery day today haha. Still managed to focus (just about) on my shot for today, now I’m going to veg out with the TV and some movies. And lots of medicinal cups of tea 🙂 Never again. Til the next time. 😀
