Children's Toys
by Mac

I know we are Adults(in body only) but our minds still like to play, even if our Toys are Camera's, But My Header and Post Pics are children's toys, and none are mine.
My Latest Toy - is my Portable Light Box, which I still am getting the hang of using it  - in  getting the right shots. 
Well worth investing £30ish for the whole bundle.

Photos taken within the last few weeks
Team Choice

Over the last few weeks, we have been rather busy with days out on day trips and just walks around Grantham.
Please Come - and join us - as I take you on an enjoyable few days out.

The most recent day out was  Sunday(just past)
We went out to an Artists delightful show - called Patchings, and folk from all over the UK come to visit and take part, of course there were  many stalls selling Arty items, demonstrations, Competitions, Brass Band playing and refreshments, but what caught my eye the most was a showing of many owls, this is where my Header came from.

{{Owl be seeing you}}
I came away from there a very happy (bunny)(OWL was pleased) with some great photos - also Julie came away with a FEW items also,lol.


Another day out was Last Saturday, where we both went to YORK city, 2 fold theme for us both,
A Quilt show and Steam Train museum, with lunch in between - A Bacon and Egg Bap and a half of their finest Ale.

One of the Biggest Steam Engines in the World

and My delight of that Saturday was 
I got to spend a few minutes on the footplate of the Steam Engine MALLARD (which holds the Worlds  Steam Speed Record of 126mph Near Grantham)
Sadly - she don't get steamed up  anymore - but still tours around the Country by being pulled along with one of the oldest Diesel trains.

Lady and the Lamp

Big wheel and  Sunbeams
Both these were taken at Scarborough,
One of Yorkshire's finest Seaside Resorts.

Looking Down, Just like Kathy, I hate looking down from the edge, altho I'm fine if enclosed,
Its called a fear of Falling and sometimes you get the urge to jump for some reason.
I have a selection of photos of Looking down, but not all exactly  Looking Down, all will be revealed as you read down my post.

My Header.

Looking Down from a Helicopter at our Cruise ship - in Norway.
That was such a thrill, (you see - enclosed and never felt afraid.)

Looking Down from The London EYE.
Enclosed and not felt afraid.

Looking down from our Holiday Log Cabin on  the Yorkshire Moors @ the North Yorkshire Steam Train.

Looking down from the top floor of "The Hub" which is a building for Art, with several floors, looking down from the top floor, ((I also hate going down steps)) - fear of falling - again.

Now we have looking Down from the ground,
Looking Down
to the footpath at a puddle and seeing the reflection of the Sun.

Looking down into our Pebble Pond and watching the Eclipse of the Sun, just catching it at the end of it.

Father and Son, looking down releasing the hook from the fish, as the sunsets.

Now we come to the point of when Looking Down of Not looking down,lol
