Eeek, the holiday is nearly over!

I did some more slide scanning today and finally finished touching up the picture I took of my brother on holiday in the Isle of Man in 1967. Though I say it myself, I did have a decent eye for a photo, which was largely instinctive, though I still have the Penguin photography book I bought when I started to get serious. I actually think my photography slipped back for many years before doing the OU photography course last May.

Thirsty work being on holiday!

Otherwise I haven't done anything terribly useful today, other than popping into town to pick up the local paper (which reassures me that nothing really ever happens here!) and a few bits and pieces for lunch.

I must get myself organised tomorrow though because it's back to work as usual on Monday.
