Occasional Ramblings with a Camera

This blog is my occasional ramblings on here, there and about, with and very occasionally without a camera. Photography, art, landscape (principally Scottish), heritage and wildlife are the things that interest me the most, so thats what I'll be writing about and of course showing pictures of. They say that a photograph is worth a thousand words, well I'm not so sure about that but if it is then great as it will save me a heap of typing, all power to the image.


No end for Many

The war might have ended, an armistice signed but for many the fighting continued.
These are images of a now unknown relative, I'm sure the same person. One image before signing up and the other taken while a resident post war(?) while admitted to Perth sanitorium. His uniform while there was pale blue. The photographer has retouched his side bald patch, evident in the before image and interesting that the hands have been shaded out. His 'thousand yard stare' is evidence of the trauma he has and continues to endure. It was this image that inspired my 'Foresight' series of images.
