From Beijing to Balloch

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

I took a wander up Balloch Park today, and whilst I was up I came across these fine looking duckies! “they are funny looking duckies” Turns out I wasn’t the 1st in the household to see them, as number 1 child had noticed them the other day, firing off a barrage of questions and statements […]

Project 365

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

New Year’s Day and my brother in law had suggested he was going to do a 365 project this year.  The idea is to take a picture every day and share, along with its story. I thought this was a great idea (he doesn’t often have them), so I decided to jump on the bandwagon and do […]

Lights, Camera, Kids!

It does raise an interesting question around “processing” though.  How […]

Kelpie’s

I have to say though I was pretty impressed. As the 2 Kelpie’s tower above you, you can’t help being […]

Northern Lights

Last night was another chance to see the Northern Lights or Auroa here in Loch Lomond – Our own Judith Ralston on the telly weather gave us the heads up, so I nipped out around 22:30 to have a look.  I went to Duck Bay, and met a few other like minded souls who must […]
