Is your work on Tumblr ??

Mine is, surprise, surprise. Forgotten how to link in here, been so long !!
So here it is

Does anyone know anything about this site?? Found out about it by someone thanking me in RB for sharing my work on Tumblr …..never heard of it.

As I have said before I don’t mind people liking my work but it would be nice to be asked once in a while if they can share it with the world. So much for disabling right click and clear gifs

Rant over for now.

What a find !!!

An American collector has become an overnight multi-millionaire after a set of 65 glass negatives he picked up at a garage sale turned out to be genuine Ansel Adams works.…

Rick Norsigian, a school district painter and collector, bought the photographic plates in Fresno, California for $US45 a decade ago.

They have now been authenticated and are valued at $US200 million ($223 million).

“The experts have emphatically determined that the negatives were in fact created by the iconic photographer Ansel Adams,” said Norsigian, who released the findings on his website and at a press conference.

Mr Norsigian’s lawyer Arnold Peter said the authentication presented a number of challenges, involving experts not only in photography but handwriting for notations and meteorology for evidence of weather

Gotta laugh....

25 days ago I wrote a journal of apology due to my absence in RB because of the flu etc and that I was feeling better……… well…….. I spoke too soon.

Have now recovered FINALLY after spending a week in hospital with acute Bronchial Pneumonia, Tonsilitis and a few other things I managed to pick up along the way …….. am hoping that I now have enough immunity to last me , hmm about 5 yrs !!

Hoping also to catch up on your wonderful new work and perhaps locate my camera which has probably rusted due to lack of use ……

Anyway will be good to be back, thanks for all the get well messages and birthday wishes.

Hugss to all xoxo


in case you missed me and for not being around.
No I haven’t been anywhere exciting ……….just have some horrible flu that has taken longer that I’d hoped to go away.

Will be back and posting, I hope, sooner rather than later.

My camera must think I don’t love it anymore …

Hope you’re all well
