Long spells

For regular visitors to this page this is stating the (very) obvious, but I fell off the blogging wagon in 2019 and if I'm honest, I'm not sure if I'll be putting out much content this year either, but I will try. I fell foul of Google+ personal accounts ending and lost the majority of my reader base as most followed me via there rather than through Blogger itself. Whilst I don't care about numbers, it's a shame that anything I write will be less viewed/appreciated/examined.

Aside from the lack of writing, pretty hideous luck over the last 18 months has meant that I've had long spells without convenient transport, long spells without camera gear and long spells with rather debilitating health issues. Not meaning to sound negative, but my camera failures have been rather interesting over the years. The probability of my specific camera failures is approx. 1 in 45 million. Given that all my gear was incredibly well looked after and with fairly light use, the probability is even lower. So chances are nobody in the entire UK (currently) has been as unlucky as me with camera failures. A pleasant thought...

On a more positive note, a smart Sparrowhawk sat on the fence outside my office window yesterday! Fortunately it stayed put long enough for me to grab a camera and take a few pics. I was using a spare camera of course, as my main one (almost new, barely used) was sent for repair last year and I still haven't got it back...
