I rather like that one dear chap. Uprights, diagonals and wigglies, all in one extremely fine shot.

I now have three 35mm SLRs and an expanded group of lenses. I think I have reached the end of spuggy's tether (sailing term?) and I am a bit concerned about digitalis teabags!

Good Morning and thank you for your comment on this image, I noticed how the sun was shining through the sails on a bright morning, I thought it so wonderful that i had to pick up my camera!

I hope you are well and enjoying good company and friends, take care

Warmest wishes

Hoist the sails! What a nice close-up shot Mike, pretty artistic. :)

Must be quite a big boat or not?

If you want to get an idea of the scale, look in my Dorrs tag, it shows in a view through my kitchen door!

Thank you for your comment, i thought it looked arty too, but i only see DIAGONALS!

Cheers, Mike

Hi Mike!. The picture was great.

Thank you for your wishes. Have a good week!

I cannot work out the scale of this photo Bonnie Lad, and have checked on all your tags. But it doesn't really matter how big or small. I really like the simple diagonals here - very arty indeed. So splice the main brace Bosun, and let's set sail under a favourable wind :))

Ca canny noo, Amelia

Thank you for your comment, I apreciate the nautical references yo so skilfully quote, but I am unaware of the meaning of such, in fact you may say that i am all at sea!

The ship appears on a tag, 'Doors: , if you'ld care to look through the kitchen door!

Have just returned from hospital with favourable news...foot is so improved that i only need to attend once a week now, so my Fridays are mine again!

Have a good week ahead, steer atrue course, may the only rocks you see be floating in your drink!

A cheery wave to you and your crew!

Mike (OOoo-Aaaar!) ;)
