I was recently made aware that the Nova Camera Flash app had been updated to allow for multiflash use. Apparently the app can control up to 10 Nova flash simultaneously. As I have two such flashes – one for myself and one I bought for my wife, I decided to try a two flash setup. Continue reading Nova Bluetooth Flash – updated
Now it has been my long term ambition to post a new thread each day on my website. But owing to time constraints and in the interest of keeping the information posted fresh and interesting, I have decided that from this week onwards, I will post at least two, maybe more posts a week, as they happen. This way I do not feel the pressure to find something to post on for each day.
So do drop in when you can, as there should be something new every few days (maybe more). Anyway, thanks for visiting my website. I hope there has been information or pictures which you have found interesting.
There are many different free game apps available to download for smartphones and tablets which can help keep one occupied and help pass the time. One such app is Tap Titans, which I’ve started playing recently. There are multiple facets to the game which can keep one interested and different ways to help you get further in the game.

Another flower I have managed to photograph in the garden is from our tomato plant. I did not want to pick a flower to photograph, as that would mean one less tomato to pick later on. Being yellow in colour, I was interested to see what that flower would look like in UV and the other light spectra. Continue reading Tomato flower
I am sure many of us have a childhood memory which has stuck in our mind all these years – which means it must have been very significant. Mine was of the time my paternal grandmother (I was her favourite grand child) had kept a home-made cookie which her friend had baked specially for her, for me to eat. That was the best cookie I had ever eaten. And I have been looking for cookies which taste like that ever since – bearing in mind I was 8 to 9 years old then.

On Monday 22nd June 2015, my wife and I made our way down to London to meet up with a few friends. A few weeks ago, we were made aware by one of our friends that there was a concert at the Royal Albert Hall featuring Jonathan Lee, a famous singer/songwriter from China – apparently he is renowned as the father of Chinese pop music, and has written many famous songs for many famous music artists. As we had never been to the Royal Albert Hall and my wife was very keen to go to this concert, we bought tickets for this event. Continue reading Royal Albert Hall – Jonathan Lee Concert
With so many flowers blooming in the garden, I have moved to photographing these in full bloom in the garden using ambient light. The first subject is the Lavender flower. The only downside of this is the need for minimal subject movement from wind, and for stronger sunlight to illuminate the subject. Continue reading Lavender flower
As both daughters are currently into Lego, they had their eye on a larger Lego set of the Volkswagen Campervan, which they said they would build together. As my wife wants to encourage them to work together and build their bond, she sponsored half the cost of this set. That made my daughters really pleased. Continue reading Lego Volkswagen T1 Campervan
Following the anniversary picnic, we had planned for a lovely dinner that evening. As we had eaten the picnic fairly late, the dinner was delayed until about 9pm. That gave us plenty of time to do the cooking. Here are the photos from that meal. Continue reading Wedding Anniversary Dinner
On Saturday, we celebrated our wedding anniversary with a lovely picnic. Although the weather was not cooperating, we still managed to have a lovely meal together. Below are photos of the food we had. Continue reading Anniversary picnic
