"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

About this blog

Following a childhood and working life spent entirely in England, my retirement was unexpectedly premature.
Rather than sitting at home wondering what to do, I decided to relocate:
to India.
This has resulted in daily delight, surprise and occasional bewilderment.

My blog is a diary of life on the Malabar coast. It is intended for friends and family:
An invitation to take the occasional glimpse at what preoccupies or intrigues me.

  3. Hello. We are a small independent company that creates art events and makes films. We are particularly taken with an image you have created: Harvest Moon, which you posted on September 24th 2010. We would like your permission to use the image. I was wondering if you would be kind enough to email me so I can tell you more about the project we are engaged in. My very best wishes Patrick

    • Sorry Patrick, the images are not mine to give away.
      As you will see at the end of the posting I have attributed them to the BBC News website.
