My mother, grandmother, aunt, brother and dog in the Highlands of Scotland in the mid sixties. I am the grumpy one in blue.

My parents found a tiny bird that had fallen out of its nest. It was a baby house martin and they nurtured it for a few days in their backyard, full of dogs, hens, ducks and marching geese. Despite the tiny size of this creature all of the other animals respected its space and didn’t crush it, peck it or eat it — at least we think so. After a few days it disappeared and we hope it had flown off to meet its family, who had been swooping in to feed it. But we also suspect that Safi, their Portuguese dog who has a history of chasing sheep, may have swallowed it in a moment of relapse.

Couple of small Scottish flowers outside my parents house. June 2014.

My favourite piece of graffiti art on the Berlin Wall.

A small sticker from Berlin, with schoolgirls in background. I have been using my 10 year old compact camera in Berlin as it’s tiny and great for Macro.

I took over 400 photos of posters and stickers in Berlin. I’m only sharing about 1% of them but I plan to do a slideshow.

Party Kids in Bucharest, May 2014

I had one of the most delicous breakfasts ever yesterday, in Berlin, at a very special craft/food market which is only open two days a week. I only ate a bacon and egg sandwich, with Bernaise sauce, but the bacon was to die for as it had been slowly cooked for 24 hours. I died and went to heaven.

Berlin is full of brilliant posters. Here are two of my favourites.

This sticker inspired me to write an article for Huffington Post (you can see it here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rupert-wolfemurray/)
We’ve been hearing so much anti-immigration rhetoric from politicians and the media that it’s refreshing to see that some people actually welcome immigrants.

A tiny pin badge of a coal miner (or pizza maker?) which I picked up at at fleamarket in Vienna (the Naschmarkt). I suspect it’s a coal miner as the person selling it had other badges from the Communist era, and who else celebrated the worker in this way. It would be an excellent place to go if you had an antique shop in the UK as there are all sorts of interesting curious on sale and prices seem very negotiable. This is the only photo I will post from my short visit to Vienna at the end of April 2014.

This photo has not been edited, I promise. I took it at the wedding of my big brother Kim (who married Fi Morris). Jude is the handsome young chap in the photo and he’s handing my cousin Anne (Goring) the wedding ring. His job was to walk round all the guests and offer them the ring to touch. It was a very moving “interfaith” ceremony, followed by a wonderful dinner in the local church hall and then a ceilidh.
I had no idea that the kid on the swing would appear in their hands like this — until I saw the photo on the screen. It felt like a minor miracle.
