Cowgirl ..

June 28th, 2008

I know this photo isn’t exactly award winning, but I’d like to see you try taking a photo of Emily!

As it was my Mum had to hang onto her but even then it was a bit hit and miss. After reviewing all the images this was the best of a bad bunch. As you can see, Emily is modeling a new neck scarf – another treat from her Mum – in a rather fetching pink.

Rather strangely it suits her.

Bungay Balls Up 2008

May 27th, 2008

For the last 10 days I’ve been in Bungay, a little town in Suffolk close to the Norfolk border.

It’s a juggling convention although not much juggling actually takes place. This is quite handy for me, as I still can’t juggle.

I’ve already posted some pictures using my . Mac account but I’ve just learnt that it doesn’t display in all browsers, in particular some on Linux.

This is the full set of photos, in original format without any editing. I will work on them at some point but I just wanted to get a second more reliable set online.

Geneva

November 25th, 2007

I know it’s been almost three months since our Holiday to Geneva but once again I find myself reminded of it – not this time by my aftershave (long story) – but rather by Cirque de Celebrite.

Tonight they had a few of the performers on the Russian Bar, a cross between gymnastics and the trampoline, which reminded me of our visit to Circus Knie. Formed in 1919 by Friedrich Knie its the national circus of Switzerland doing around 350 performances a year employing over 200 people and 100 animals.

When the better half discovered that they were going to be in Geneva at the same time as us it was pretty much a given that we’d be going to see them and we duly booked tickets for a visit just before our return home. One of the best acts as far as I was concerned was The White Crow – a Russian bar act that quite simply blew me away. To be honest I hadn’t been to a traditional circus for many many years and the whole event was pretty spectacular – if any of you get a chance to see them I’d highly recommend it.
