Snailbooty is one of my favourite photographers on Flickr and this is something he found in an old book. It’s a page of way too freaky female ventriloquists. To view them properly, and I promise you it’s worth it, you ‘ll have to click through to the shot on Flickr and then on the link below it you’ll get a better and larger view.

It’s wild man… You could then lose yourself in Snailbooty’s site for hours. It’s the most original I have ever seen.

One of my Flickr contacts took this outstanding shot of her nephew. Check out her shots; they’re great.

I guess this must be my best photo because it has attracted the greatest number of comments on my Flickr site here and has just been nominated on Scotland in the Gloaming’s blogspot.

My first ever nomination!


It must be a blog written by very wise and artistically talented people.

No really, it has to be.  Look here.

I took this picture 18 days before he died. On June 30th 2007. At a barbecue at our house. It turns out it was the last thing he ever ate. I know it’s a rather melancholy photograph but it was a moment of repose amongst a lot of smiling and laughing. I’ve converted it in Photoshop to add to its melancholy air which might seem a little morbid to some of you but, you know what, I think it’s beautiful and I’m very fond of it. There’s more, happier, pictures of my dad on my Fluickr site which you can find here
