Reflections in the car and a starling ever hopeful of finding crumbs! Beautiful Indian summer here, an added bonus after the gales of the last month.

In my garden

Trying out a new lens! Didn't see the cobweb until I saw it on the screen- the wind has made short work of it!

No longer in service

Part of a rusty steam train - can't beat these colours (in my opinion!)

It was the dedication of our latest grandchildren on Sunday. This psalm is a lovely reminder of how precious we all are in God's sight - sometimes easy to forget in the varied circumstances we find ourselves in, no matter what age we are or how long our lives last.

Having accidentaly left my small camera bag at son-who-lives-a-long-way-away's house, there were times when I didn't want to carry my big (heavy) bag around. A quick look at commercially made handbag-type bags revealed that they cost about £100+, so I decided to make my own using a bought bag and fitting the 'innards'. The first bag cost about £10 -

- and the second (smaller) one was one I already had in the house. I used about a metre of fabric for each bag, one inch foam (bought at an upholsterers), plus sew-in velcro. The dividers can be repositoned to suit the size of lenses, filters and other bits and pieces. I love using them as they don't look like camera bags and they have room for purses, mobile phones and so on. I can also remove the whole unit and put it into another bag - and you can't have too many bags!
