A conversation and an idea doing the rounds. This was created between Christmas and New Year 2012, is incomplete, and is heavily biased towards cafés. There are nowhere near 111 items – how about coming up with some more? And oh yes, it’s impossible to read some of it.

All’s well. Tiger on his circuit – keeping us safe from .. other cats!!  This was taken as I waited for the International Space Station to pass overhead or to the northwest at 22:26. I was either misinformed or looking in the wrong direction. So no. But I am playing with Kelly’s G1X which does ISO 12800 – which is rather cool – well, I think so. It takes photos in the almost dark!

Just a little unnerving is the camera phone – random – perhaps a good thing for the terminally over designing photographer. And no RAW files – will I cope? BTW observation no way in conflict with this.

Coco and feijoas on the kitchen window sill

Two cats both tabbys – Tiger and Coco – patrol our section from their respective next door homes. Tiger is long haired Coco short, their colour and markings almost identical. They scrap they stalk each other – but tend to inhabit our space at different times of the day.
