To Hope….please add the word Peace.

Then with luck we may in this uncertain world provide both Hope and Peace for all in the NEW year ahead.

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge….Open Topic


In the Slow Lane……

We have the ‘free choice’ of subject for this weeks Black and White Photo Challenge….so as the year is coming to a close and we slow down in readiness for the Hogmanay celebrations, I rather thought this would make an appropriate subject.

On a sunny winters day there can be nothing much more idyllic than a leisurely cruise in a traditional Narrowboat along one of England’s many canals…..and leisurely it has to be with a maximum speed allowed of 5mph.
