I’ve been away for a few days and a little too busy to post.  I have however been taking photos; and I should be able to play catch-up during the forthcoming five-day holiday.  The posts will include photos from the Special Forces event at Kuwait Towers last Saturday, some shots of (and from) the new A380, and a postcard from Hamburg  where I am today.

For this post, I wanted a photo that symbolised a break/pause.  I was inspired by the silly title, and the word ‘Gap’ made the choice obvious.  If you haven’t yet guessed it, it’s a close up of my jeans.  I used a Canon G11 on a macro setting. I’m impressed with what this little camera can do.  I can’t wait to buy a macro lens for my Nikon, which I hope to do in the summer.

Have a wonderful break.
