An eclectic collection of different topics mostly relating to my interest in photography. This reflects on my impulse to experiment, create, and develop my technique and new ideas. Some entries are meant as lab notes to record experiments and experiences or tutorials. I also try and cultivate other topics in photography. Please comment and I will try and respond.
Vicki and I spent the weekend of Nov 4th and 5th hiking in the Quantock Hills and Exmoor. This is in Somerset and Devon. Exmoor is famous for its native ponies. The area has some outstanding beauty and is only an hour and a half from Bath.
As a fitting bookend to our visit to the battlefields of the Great War, Redington invited me up to Bedford to see him march with the Air Cadets in the Remembrance Day parade. Remembrance Day celebrates the Armistice on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 that ended WWI (the Great War). In the US we celebrate Veterans day. It used to be known as Armistice day but in 1953 Congress passed a law calling it Veterans day to give it more relevence to WWII veterans.
In this small way we became part of the history we traveled to learn about.
