My entry for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge
My sister has a lemon tree and this came off of it recently; if this was a sci-fi movie, right now we’d be worrying about mutant lemon monsters!
So a minor crisis has hit my working environment. As I may have mentioned previously, Tea is my preferred beverage during the day; at least at work as beer drinking during the working day I understand is frowned upon here. Also, I’m a bit of a snob about it too.
Anyway I was lucky enough to have the convenience of hot water being available from the cooler (yes I know that’s somewhat of an oxymoron) at a temperature that was appropriate for tea making – all was well with the world.
Then a bombshell was dropped last week that the cooler had been recalled due to a fire risk and should be switched off. Continue reading “I need tea!”
I was reminded this week of what courteous driving is like. Living the freeways in LA you rarely see the kind of thoughtful driving with care and attention to other road users.

Apologies for not much activity this week, as well as the house move I have also had a family loss.
I have some catching up to do later as many photography related things are going on.
I have several cameras to try and post about;
I have a set of macro bellows to play with.
I have some projects I’d like to start on.
So please bare with me and I will be posting some of the above and more soon.
It’s Cinco de Mayo! So congratulations to Mexico on their victory 155 years ago and Viva General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín!
Unfortunately I have no image to share which fits with this occasion so instead here is a picture of an elephant I took a while ago which is a favourite of mine.
I really should prepare for this next year!
Does anyone know how it works/what this is as I am intrigued. I saw this on Ebay a month ago with a starting bid of one dollar and it didn’t sell and now it’s back on again. I would buy it just to work it out but the postage is a lot (due to the weight/size I guess) and I really don’t have the space for it.
