one word photo challenge: cat

Are you an ailurophile or ‘phobe (in other words cat lover or cat hater/fearer)? I’ve been a cat lover all my life and my parents gave me my first cat when I was 5 years old and I’ve had one, on and off, ever since.

these fishermen have developed an unusual method of steering their boats. They balance on one leg and, with the other leg wrapped around the oar, they paddle their boats

travels in 2015

Just in case you thought I’d dropped off the planet, I’ve been busy traveling but had time to put together this short collection of some of my photos from this year

DP-photo-challenge: vivid

I’ve opted to share some vivid colours for this week’s DP challenge. The most vivid colours I’ve seen in my life were in Rajasthan. There we saw colours that I could never even imagine existed and that I’ve certainly never seen in our cooler European climes.

Both of these rooms were in the painted haveli hotel we stayed in, in Mandawa. Unfortunately our humble room was nothing like as resplendent as these two!
