Despite the cold, the Ghosts are seeking the visceral thrills of the fairground. Circling the Temple of Helter Skelter whlst building courage for the long climb to the top and the bracing descent; many are finding themselves reluctant to face the biting winds of the summit.

30 hand-held exposures representing a total of two minutes and 18 seconds spread over a six hour period. Basically, take few shots then come back later and take a few more.

At the end of this sequence my poor PEN-F was struggling to auto-focus properly because of the cold. Shot at the decidedly wintery Goodwood 76th Member's Meeting.

January. After sunset at the sea pool in Bude, Cornwall.

It was cold, dark and it was raining, but blimey, it was good!

I seem to remember Bart Simpson being asked by Milhouse what super-power he wished he'd been born with. Bart replies "The ability to see through time".

That may not have actually happened, but I do, however, know that in one episode Lisa Simpson, when fed some very spicy food, did say "... I can see through time!".

The references to Frank Herbert's science fiction classic, 'Dune', are clear, and so I'm wondering if I'd had a particularly spicy breakfast on the morning of the BRCC Watercress Line trip, where these shots were taken. It's that idea of being able to see through time that fascinates me so.

"I can see through time!"

9 hand-held exposures representing 39 seconds of June 17th, 2018.

Who can resist a nice bit of rope? Not me, that's for sure.

This rather lovely coil was spotted on HMS Warrior a few years ago. As I was taking the shot I heard a small boy ask his mother, "Mum... why is that man taking photos of rope?"

She didn't really have an answer for him, but hopefully you, dear viewer, can see why.
