Licensed this shot today of an old man sitting in the Fleece Inn, Bretforton, taken four years ago. He was there with his family to celebrate his 97th birthday, so I took some additional shots with them all together… and emailed them the results.

 

A month ago I decided I needed a photo to hang on the chimney breast. But which one? I thought I might get bored with one of my landscapes, so I chose this image: the simple composition, the dignified demeanour, that Mona Lisa smile, the glass (more than) half full.

 

I emailed his family to let them know, and enquired, delicately, whether he had celebrated his 101st birthday. And I’m happy to report that he has! So Douglas Harrison, who I only met for a few minutes, looks down from my wall and, I like to think, doesn’t judge me too harshly...

I note that he is drinking Stowford Press Cider. A fine drink for a fine elderly gent ( I also regularly drink the same).

 

Nice story and nice portrait.

 

Cheers !

View from the village of Ortedo towards the town of La Seu d'Urgell, in the Pyrenees of Catalonia, Spain, after Stock Photo

 

 

This scene shows the aftermath of a thunder and lightning storm in the Spanish Pyrenees, a sleeper from 2010 that I didn't think would ever license. Very low $$ for worldwide book use.

It looks like my surge (of one) has started.

Talking to the people there, it's actually going to fly someday. It's not just a model

It was a beautiful jet fighter. Too bad the Canadian government scrapped it in 1959.

Yes, we have our own scandals like that.. TSR2, etc. etc. We cancelled and bought American, where have you heard that before! Just about the only thing we kept was the Harrier.

Are they your books John? How did you do when you were travelling? I love my nomadic life in my minibus but I miss my books terribly. I have over 2,000 in storage somewhere. I can only take a dozen or so with me. Nice portrait BTW.

Yes... all my books. Some I've written. Some I've borrowed from friends and never returned. Some I bought from charity shops. They were mostly stored in a friend's attic while I lived in the camper-van; too many books might have broken the axel! While travelling, I had a Kindle... which was perfect...

Thanks John - nice to know where they end up (half page as well!)

 

That was from short weekend away in the campervan  - we normally walk down from the campsite!

My pleasure.  I recognised it because I had one in the same issue - though mine was a flower:

Same low to mid $$

 

Must pop down to Looe sometime = it's been a while since I went down there.
