Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year, No cards this year, Money donated to WaterAid!

Monday, December 1st, 2014

I’ve been struggling with a dilemma for many years, on the distribution and needless spend on Christmas Cards at Christmas time each year, this also fueled by the increase costs in posting a Christmas card in the UK,  currently -  (1st Class letter stamp is 62p, and a 2nd Class letter stamp is 53p), I’ll not be adding to Royal Mail’s Profits this year!

After visiting many countries including Africa, Ethiopia, Nicaragua and India, where people in the world don’t have access to safe water. I’ve now made my decision.

This year, I will NOT be sending out Christmas Cards, and the money normally spent on cards and postage is being donated to Water Aid.

Please do not be offended if you do not receive a Christmas Card, but be joyous in the thanks, that the money has gone to provide safe drinking water to those in need, this Christmas!

Here is a virtual one instead….

and let me takes this opportunity to Wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, from Andy, Lindsey, Esther, Angus and Tilly!

thanks

Popped to Church for Remembrance Sunday!

Sunday, November 10th, 2013

I quickly popped to Church today, for Remembrance Sunday and also to place these “trackables” in the Geocache!

This place “Kirby Underdale” sounds like it’s from Tolkien’s Lord Of The Rings

After receiving an email from a friend, asking for a larger resolution photograph of him from the 1991!

I thought I would go back through the back catalog of unpublished photographs

These pictures were taken in 1999, these are Sony Glasstron Glasses, which projects a large cinema screen in front of the viewers eyes, I used them to watch DVDs on my portable DVD player, whilst community to clients site on the train. On two separate occasions whilst sitting in First Class on the train to Edinburgh, watching a DVD, a GNER Ticket Inspector interrupted me, and asked “which stop are you departing the train, so I can help you, Sir” - he thought I was blind!

or directly here :- http://andysworld.org.uk/album/Kenya/index.html

Lindsey has sorted, and out of the original 1000+ photographs taken, these are the best 40%!

These photographs are straight from the camera, and re-sampled and reduced for viewing on the website, so they are not the original 12MegaPixel images, they have not been retouched either!

These were all taken with our new CANON PowerShot SX50 HS bridge camera
