This is not a photoblog, nor is it a travel blog. Or at least not primarily.

As I said in my first post by way of introduction:

There are some posts that really do not fit within any of my current blogs, so here is yet another blog. Based on the idea of every picture tells a story.

Yes, it’s not an original idea, and yes, I am sure there are lotsissimo blogs out there with that very title. Or maybe not

This will not be a picture blog per se. Oh, no. I do not agree with the fact that just posting a picture is remotely helpful. Yes it can be an excellent photo (these won’t be as they will be mainly scanned), but would you really expect a journalist not to at least include a caption?

In fact you will get more than that, the story behind the picture. The picture from the past.

Perhaps I should retitle it.

So there you have it. A photo with a tale, posted as and when the feeling takes me. It may be from childhood, it may be from my young adult years, or it may be a couple of days ago, because the truth is, it is all in the past. Other snapshots of my life, and rather more up-to-date, are over on Clouds and Roughseas.

I don’t have Photoshop, and I am too idle to try and faff around with my photos to make them look a tiny bit better. Who’d notice the difference? Yes, some of them would look slightly better, my personal favourite fiddle is to give them more saturation and more contrast, but as this isn’t a photoblog, I’m not aiming for brill photos, just a few snapshots and an extended caption.

Oh and the scanned photos are mainly shot with my old Pentax although a few may have been my Partner’s Canon AE1.

Current photos, eg the one above, are taken with my Canon Powershot A530, or occasionally with my iPhone 3GS.

    • Thanks Mary. It was one of those evenings when the light kept changing so I took quite a few different photos. I must wander down to the marina and take some more as I haven’t done for a while.

  4. Oooooo…I’m going to LIKE this blog, especially since I’m a visually-stimulated hetero male with less-than desirable compliments to give to women who need none. 😉 *chuckles*

    Three down, two to go!
