Weekly Photo Challenge: Treat

I’m a lucky man in so many ways that every day is a treat – especially when a new dawn comes over the fields like this.

My (Grandfather’s) Watch

This is a photograph of the back of my watch. Except that it isn’t really my watch. It’s the one that was presented to my grandfather on the occasion of his retirement in 1961 – at the age of 74. Those are his initials: TC.

Rather like me, it’s a bit temperamental now, and sometimes stops for no obvious reason (also rather like me). But I’m proud to wear it.

Photography 101: Home

Almost ten years ago, we bought a ruin – and I do mean a ruin – in rural France as a retirement home.

There was rather a lot of renovation involved, as you can see from these ‘before and after’ photographs, but it was well worth it, as I’ve written about here.

And we still call it Brokedown Palace.
