Testing out the emergency backup under the stairs guest accommodation ahead of the festive season. If you are under 5′ 11” and a fan of the harry potter books it is comfortable enough.

Well this is a fine example of a first world problem. My local petrol station has now placed stroopwafels next to the tea and coffee dock. They have replaced the apples – Bastards! I curse my lack of willpower in the face of the glories of the Stroop….

327/365/2014 - Nikon F100
327/365/2014 – Nikon F100
A little over a year ago during a trip to Prague my F100 leapt from my shoulder on the Charles Bridge, my reflexes dimmed by the icy wind and slightly too much mulled wine were unable to catch the camera before it hit the cobblestones. While it continues to function it has not been 100% reliable and has been left on the shelf a few more times than I would like. Most notable it stayed in Dublin when I went India. For Christmas my wife bought me a “new” F100 and today it gets its first trial.

Blowing the dust away with a walk in the botanical gardens. That is a lot of sunlight for this time of year.

329/365/2014 - Frost
329/365/2014 – Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and Iā€”
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

The Road Not Taken – Robert Frost
