In the last week two very exciting things happened (well at least I thought they were exciting)
Since starting blogging in November last year the blog has had 10 000 views! Not only that, occasionally someone liked something too!
Today a very kind reader pushed the follow button and became the 200th follower!
I know that there are those blogging gods and goddesses out there whose blogs proclaim their thousands of devoted followers, and with just cause, but to me, 200 kind people who thought for a moment that they might like to come back again after reading a post or two of mine is a wonderful gift and I am very grateful.

Such a peculiar contrast. A vintage car show in the grounds of a 14th century castle. I snapped this just as the show was ending. Vincennes
Here I am in happier times in front of the Lapin Agile. I ask you, Dear Reader, do I look like a perfect Santa to you?
In the Chateau of Vincennes a bridge in the sky leads to the Donjon.
Your Christmas Getaway – Feeling a little down this December? Why not rent Vaux le Vicomte and flee to France. Don’t bother telling your family and friends. You can always claim you were abducted by aliens if they ask any questions.
The sun just rising on the horizon, the moon and a single star hovering above the makeshift tent we built on the desert island.
I snapped this lucky shot in April in Paris with les Invalides in the background. A wonderful day!
A beautiful warm day in Exmouth, Western Australia…before the shark…
This charming view from the abandoned picnic ground at the base of a cliff I fortuitously tumbled down at Blenheim Palace was a joy to behold.
Who could one not feel bliss when greeted by this view over the ramparts! The vivid lichen which covers the tops of the walls in St Malo only serves to compliment blues of the sea and the texture of the rocks exposed at low tide.
