Captured with my Canon PowerShot S3 IS camera in Auto mode, a giant replica of a piece from the famous Lewis Chessmen at Stornoway Airport on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland.They were used in one of the Harry Potter films and the original set is housed in The British Museum and is fascinating.

My life is divided between teaching Music and Photography. The instruments I play are organ, piano, clarinet and saxophone. I taught German and Spanish before my retirement, but since I got my digital camera no longer have time for them!
