welcome to the family


After many years of faithful service my Pentax Kr, my fourth Pentax since 1970, finally gave up the ghost. You will have seen many of its creations on the changing palette since I first started blogging in 2013.

I’m happy to report that a used Pentax K5 in perfect condition joined the family on the weekend and already feels very much at home. Clearly the beginning of another beautiful friendship as you can see from this morning’s walk.

Time to say “thank you” to my old friend and “welcome to the family” to my new one.

Antigua study I – 29.11.18 – water-colour/pen and ink

Four years ago I posted about the charitable organization Heath for Humanity and the great work of their surgical missions over many years to Antigua, Guatemala. The post included a video presentation of theirs for those of you who would like to learn more about them, and you can visit their website here: h4h. Earlier this month I had the privilege of joining them for a week, working with wonderful dedicated colleagues who were making a real difference to the lives of so many; heroes all.

Here are a few of my memorable images from Antigua which include the dazzling yellows of the iconic Arco de Santa Catalina, the colourful pastels of the buildings and the Fuego volcano in the distance, which erupted once again just over a week ago.
