A view of St Ives. on Flickr.

This is, believe it or not, almost winter in Cornwall, a place which seems to have a climate of its own. Well, not quite true, it was as grey as any other part of the UK upon our arrival, but for the past few days has been lovely. Sadly we leave tomorrow, but not without a lot of nice memories and photos.

This photo was taken in a place where I guess a million pictures have been taken. Sometimes I wonder if I should add to the mass of similar images. It’s times like that when I remember who I’m taking these photos for and just do it.

Just back from HK No. 3,429 on Flickr.

Returned after 107 hours door to door (yes, I timed it with the stop watch on my phone!). Lots of meetings (this pick was taken from a taxi after having met with FS in Harcourt Rd), sitting in workshops, dinners with BS (and one surprise one with ND), and a day of the worst jet lag I have had in years. Back now at home sitting in our lounge with Z beside me, and S on my lap. Bliss.

Dusk near the Danube. on Flickr.

Even on exceedingly long work days there are moments of real beauty. This was taken as we were speeding back to the airport. One of those days. Up in time for a 7.15am flight and back in London around 8.15pm and home by fish. Exhausting but great store visits, and looking at some excellent work by our Austrian colleagues. Nice day.

What’s in my carry on bag. on Flickr.

This is totally for my own interest, but I do kind of like pictures I see of what’s in people’s bags. So here’s what’s in my nice Jack Spade bag which I carry with me everywhere. The only thing you can’t see is my phone, which I’m using to, er, I’m sure you’ll work it out!
