Yes, Martinborough.

Sorry, you can't mouseover to see my captions because I copy the image from AIM. You can do that as soon as they upload- you don't have to wait for the update.

Shot for an article about pedestrian safety  (wish I had taken the name "Paul" out....may re-upload).  This winter, for much of the eastern half of the U.S., has been very mild with very little snow, so shoots like this have been possible.

It's interesting what you can find when looking through old film files from way back when. I totally forgot about this one

Will probably never sell but I like it. Was walking around with my camera at a Dia De Los Muertos street festival last November. This one of my favorite ways to capture images, often shooting from low with the screen tilted up. This young lady was one of the few that notice me shooting. 😊

American football fans may recognize this man.  He is a TV sportscaster who covers pro football, James Brown (not the musician, of course).

I've been hoping to find one of these elusive nudibranchs for many years. And lady luck came my way at the perfect time,  on the 40th anniversary of me learning to scuba dive.

I have been volunteering my time and talent (what little there is ) to photograph "fly ins", where returning Navy pilots fly in or back to base from the ship at the end of a deployment and are reunited with loved ones. I got permission from this couple to use their images for stock (not their selects but the left overs 😀).

Grain like golfballs, but a museum piece in action. No. 29 a 1904 Leeds built steam loco hauling an NCB coal train through the Durham coalfield in the mid 1960s. The engine survived and is now to be found at the North Yorks Moors Railway having  recently been brought back into service following a major overhaul.

 Like Magnus Magnusson said at the end of Master Mind "I've started so I'll finish". Last one for January. See you next month.
