just to show you my camera works


Photo by Louis. This is a small (very, very small) sample of his car collection. He's mad about cars - especially Mazdas. Unfortunately Mazdas are really hard to buy so he has to content himself with various other brands. The red one at the top of the photos is his Opal Speedster - this is currently his absolute favourite.


If you look very carefully you will see a spiderweb in the rain. I got to use my zoom lens for this photo which was handy as I didn't want to stand out in the rain to take the photo.


Finally, I'm not sure why I added this photo, but I love it. We have a huge jade plant in our front yard. Jade plants are for prosperity. I was looking at it the other day and thinking that we aren't rich so it mustn't be working. Upon reflection though, I realised we have many riches in our lives and although we are not rolling in money we always have enough to pay the bills and eat good food. That makes us pretty rich I think.

Have a lovely weekend all.

I wonder what it is specifically about mazdas that have captured his imagination?

Lovely photos-glad your camera is working.

I just love that photo too! Your entrance looks wonderful. Yes! I think there's a lot more to life than money. Our life is rich with experiences, which unlike shares or property, can never be devalued! How much wiser you are to invest in experiences rather than the money market.

this is my patch said...

I always say 'at least we can pay the bills' and stay warm! What a lovely spider's web, don't you just hate it when you inadvertently walk into one. Who needs riches when you have that lovely garden gate to look at. x

Beautiful tree and thinking. We make things good or bad by thinking it so. Your philosophy is one I can relate to. And that car collection sounds priceless.
