Sorry for not catching up and being here lately but with hoildays and the children being off school time has been an issue.

Take care everyone.

Hello Back for a few days and what a wonderful return it is too!!!!!

I have been in Devon/Dorset for the last 2 1/2 weeks camping, while there we suffered a lot of rain and muddy conditions. We were most fortunate to meet up with Cath and Richard Veal again for a second yr. Thank you both for a lovely day at Buckfest Abbey and the steam railway.

Well after a 5 hr drive home through the wonderful M5 and M6 traffic, I returned To log on to Redbubble and found that I have sold a Mount print copy of There is light at the end of the tunnel

Thank you so much to the mystical purchaser for making me a happy and proud person.

I was wondering if you would be interested in contributing in the new forum.

Critique Centre

This forum would be a place to add an image of your own that you would be interested in getting some feed back on from others.It could be advice on camera settings, positioning, lighting, effects…..etc

If you add an image be expected to get critique, but we ask our members no unpleasantness please.

What do you think?

go the group TUTORIALS

RB .......Where has everyone gone?????

Hi folks

As many of you know I have been of line for a month, due to holidays and computer problems…….Upon my return ( I have the use of a computer for a couple of days, mines still not fixed…..booooo) I have noticed how quiet it has become. Have many people left or reduced their time here. There is not nearly as many image’s coming through my overview as before…..

Does anyone else see this too or is it just me?

Despondent, Am I on my own?????

Despondent

Due to time constraints and despondancy, comments are few.

Am I on my own?
=

Do others feel this too?….Do you?….go on be honest!
=

Do you find if you have missed just ONE item of someones work they then stop commenting on yours?

I thought the community here was strong, well bonded. Is this only true if you comment and stoke someones ego, make their art popular, viewed, maybe even appear on the popular pages?

I have been watching this grow recently, becoming more aware of how often this happens and find this so sad for all.

Many others have realised this before me and have left! Is this why they have left? Got despondent?

What do you Think?

I know its a long shot but we’re going to Stirling Scotland for the easter break in the Caravan for 10 days and would really like some tips for places to visit and interest, from other people who may have been before.

Please note we are going with 4 children, so it would really need to be child friendly and entertaining for all. National trust places, historical interest, views, water falls etc…..

Hello everyone
Would anyone be interested in starting a group with me?…

I hear you ask not another one but this one will not require too much. While I was away at the weekend we came upon a small quaint cottage that was in fact a tea rooms in the summer and is owned and run by the National Trust it got me thinking, both Mike and I have been members of the national Trust for a few yrs. The National trust have some of this countrys most attractive buildings and gardens open to the public for a small fee of course I would like to give bubble members the opportunity to showcase them in one place.Would anyone be interested in co hosting this group with me, I would like there to be quite a few other, as I have found with other groups hosting can be time consuming but if the responsibility is

going away for a two days in the morning

Hi folks…

Just to let you know we will not be here over the next couple of days. We are going to landudno north Wales for a child free time (out first in ten yrs). woohooWere taking the cameras of corse we plan to go tour the area. We have been this way many times before and its not too far from home, only 1 1/2 hrs in the car. There is so much for us to see. We may go to Conway castle, or Betwsy coed for sure as we would like to return child free to have time to take pictures of swallow falls, last time at xmas was not easy as the children got bored as there is not much for them to see or do there, also its not very safe at this time of yr as there is lots of ice and they may fall and get hurt.So you may see lots of pics from us when we return as we hope to get some good slow shutter shot

We do have some areas of interest that is different also.We also have fellow friends here that will comment on both of our works and they can be very similar in appearance.We shall still be using our individual accounts also but will use one too.Thanks for taking the time to read this. Have a great evening whats left of it, or morning, day night depending where you are.
