My favorite time of the month!  Always fun digging thru my collection of odds and ends.

My three




My wife sitting in a sunbeam in the gorgeous Thirumalai palace in Madurai, South India. This was one of the times when a grab shot comes out well. The place was packed with Indian school groups and, being the only whites there, we were surrounded by curious kids and teachers constantly. I was taking pictures when I noticed that the Leader of the Opposition was not with me. I turned to see her sitting in this sunbeam and at the same time there was no-one blocking my view. I had time to shoot half a dozen shots before I was engulfed again. 






Getting away from it all, Filey Beach in Yorkshire.

My first two were both taken (in Cornwall) on the same day - obviously a day for solitariness. There's an added poignancy for me as it was (entirely coincidentally) the anniversary of the death of my father.
