New camera needs testing

Misty Originally uploaded by rutty. I recently treated myself to a small gift – a new Canon EOS 400D. OK, so it’s been put on the never never until I can pay it off, but..

I’m an artist, me.

The Northern Irish Coast Originally uploaded by rutty. I wish that I was any good at painting. Rather than spending endless hundreds of pounds on those average-looking canvasses that you see for sale in these..


Lincoln Cathedral Originally uploaded by rutty. Lincolnshire. What do you think of when you hear Lincolnshire? Sausages? Extremely boring countryside? Inter-family sexual relationships? Tractors? These are all (allegedly) factors in this lovely county but I..

I want an iMac

Niagara Falls

Water, water Originally uploaded by rutty. How bloody impressive are the Niagara Falls eh? This was my second visit there but the Falls still took my breath away. The first time I went was in..

The Islands

Centre Island Originally uploaded by rutty. Yesterday was a family day, so we were still lacking a visit to one of those dodgy bars with pictures of racy ladies outside. Maybe tomorrow. Instead of a..

More culture (no strippers – sorry)

CN Tower Originally uploaded by rutty. Yesterday saw us avoiding houses of ill-repute and visiting places of Canadian Culture – the CN Tower and Hard Rock Cafe (twice). No visit to Toronto could ever be..
