Take your camera on business trips


posted on 2nd of may, 2014

I had a meeting in Edinburgh last week and two or three hours in the afternoon free before the bus left for Inverness. It was a lovely afternoon when the sun shone.
I took an image of the new trams closeup while they were still undergoing test runs down Princes Street and with a tram, buses and taxi alongside.

The trams have so far cost a staggering £760 million. Already it is claimed that the tram lines cause accidents to cyclists.

The trams in Bradford in North of England were removed about 60 years ago ! There would have been good reasons for scrapping them first in favour of trolley buses then those were scrapped in turn in favour of common or garden petrol buses.

The Scottish Parliament building cost close to £500 million........................

Gardening tip


posted on 4th of may, 2014

Most folk in Europe who own a house will have a garden and if owners are like me they want a striped lawn.

Unfortunately dandelions grow as weeds in lawns and in Springtime proliferate. They seeds are vector borne.

I discovered some 2 years ago the Supermarket Lidl stocked weed removers
and here is a shot of a dandelion being removed by my wife.

So far this Spring my wife has removed over 500 dandelions which if left in the ground would have multiplied to thousands later in the Summer. Now sadly the head has broken off (weld has sheared off) and we are looking for a new supplier. If you see any please let this writer know !

By the way any photographer wanting a house with a big garden should think twice............
