The Annual Free Convention 2016

Had a great night out at Tynemouth Park Hotel last night, where the Annual Free convention was  held.  On the 40th anniversary of Paul Kossoff’s death, they had Terry Slesser from Backstreet Crawler as well as a Free & Backstreet Crawler tribute band from Japan, with Hideyuki Hide Kinoshita on guitar. They were excellent. Brill night and fun to be out with our pals Mick & Katie.

The Sunday Fraggle report..

Firstly, for the second week I have a photo left behind from the previous week. I hope this is not the beginning of  mental decline, but much previous similar experiences tell me it probably is. I forget loads of stuff. I console myself with the fact that my lovely hubby is as bad if not slightly worse than me :). And what is this wonderful photo you forgot to post I hear you cry… well there you have it. A masterpiece no less. Taken with my Iphone 5 and the hipstamatic app. Don’t ask why. So on to this past…

Sunday Afternoon

Which it is here at the moment, and quite sunny, but cold now autumn is passing and winter is looming. I’ve had a week off work which is great, but also not so great as it’s the last day and am back to work tomorrow. 😦 I do like not being at work, a lot. The weather has not been so kind though and I have not got out much which is a shame as I’d fancied a few walks with my camera, but I did read a lot, I finished the series of Jack Reacher novels, and am into…

another week

As always work was busy, lots of problem solving and gnashing of teeth. Didn’t get chance to take any photo’s on Monday or Tuesday, but Wednesday I was able to have a quick lunch break at Woodhorn, and got to see the swans I was going to get out and take some shots, but this one decided to have a lie down by my car door, and I didn’t want to upset him!   Thursday was one of those days off I have that I end up working, but when I got home Phil and I went to our fave…

  Another late night shot. Was busy today, went to Phil’s daughter Shelley’s house for dinner, had a few things to do to get ready for work tomorrow 😦 and it was a grey uninspiring sky. Got a few shots of birds in the garden but nothing special. So I stuck my macro lens on and wandered round the house tonight looking through the lens to see if anything looked interesting enough to photograph!!  Gonna call this Depth of CD Cabinet. 🙂

37/365

    I found with my previous 365 that if I was stuck for ideas or ‘couldn’t be bothered’ with  a daily photo I would ‘cheat’ and use my hipstamatic app on the I-phone to do the daily shot.  I am trying really hard not to do that this time, and have managed so far.  However tonight my hubby wanted me to accompany him on a visit to his friend George’s house, to investigate George’s stereo/internet/streaming system, which is quite extensively entwined with the internet and therefore his computer.   Now my hubby is a stereo buff, it’s his hobby…
