End of an Era :-)

It seems like changing your user name and starting a new blog is not the thing to do even if you tell people about it. Due to the fact that vodacom is now charging me 100 times what they did a few months ago I have not written a blog for quite some time. No one reads old blogs anymore except to advertise or spam you. I have tried to answer most of them but the emails are returned because they can`t be delivered. I realize that most of the emailed likes have been from serial `likers` as they never comment. comments are great because even if they are anti they give you an idea if you are on the right track.

and a lot of fun just taking the sunrise in the morning while having coffee.

Old Photo`s Again.

I am still going through my old photo`s that were taken on film and scanning them, it`s very time consuming but does bring back a lot of memories. This was taken in the early 70`s and the girl in the middle is now 45.

Trek fishing has been closed down in Hout Bay now but it was something that the whole beach got involved in. Since the change in Government why have these things been eliminated?

Next are a few from the UK.

I wondered why this Lilly grew so tall and was told it had a virus. That may be right as year after year it did get shorter.

This was the new Tesco supermarket until some youngsters decided to set light to the wheelie bins. Not only did they burn the bins but the whole place burned down. When I went on holiday a few years ago it had been rebuilt and is the largest one in the area.

Every year they have a river festival in Maidstone on the Medway which is very well attended. There are plenty of places to eat and beer can by bought from moving hand carts, in plastic tumblers. The evening is finished off with a great firework display from a building to the right of the photograph.

I was asking a friend to name the capital cities of countries in Africa which for an Englishman was quite good until we got to South Africa and he said Nkandla. :-) :-)
It`s just that he had heard the name so often on the news in the UK. :-)

Last Post ?

I was thinking like some other bloggers who have emailed me saying that they think it`s time for a username change. I think that sometimes we get caught in a situation where we diverse too much trying to please as many people as possible. Also when I get a like I try to email a thank`s but most never acknowledge or the email address is not active.

Sunrise 1


Sunrise, Sunset and the Moon.

The cloud out to sea looks like the mountains that the sun used to shine over a few months ago. When the cloud lifts it is now sunrise, but it`s a bit later than publicized.

The sky earlier was about the time of sunrise but it was mostly cloud.

This was the sunset the other night, but I was a bit early.

The moon last night was also covered in cloud, but made a good photo. I took some sequence photo`s and they made a good animation, showing the clouds moving across the moon.

It`s amazing what interesting photo`s can be taken of the sky, it`s just a matter of looking up. I am probably lucky in many ways of having the time, and a good place to take photo`s. Every sunrise and sunset is different, as are clouds and the moon setting. The moon last night was in the same place as the sun used to be a few months ago when I took sunset photo`s from the car park.

Cameras and UFO`s.

first cameras

I have tried with all the digital cameras that I have to try and get some night photo`s with very limited success. While I was watching the constellation of Orion move across my field of vision I started to think of some of my early photographic memories. My first thought was of the Ensign full View that I got in 1950, it took a 120 Kodak film which was 21/4″ square. Latter I got a twin lense reflex which had a lot more settings. They took very good photo`s but in those days there was only black and white . It was quite late in the 50`s when they got colour films and they were expensive. In the 60`s I got a 35 mm SLR Miranda Sensorex which I still have. With this camera I took a lot of photo`s with time exposures some were quite weird and started my investigation into UFO`s. I don`t believe in little green men in flying saucers but I love experiment and investigate unusual things in the sky. A lot of my photos have been used by UFOSA for lectures and I think they were misrepresented. Most of these were taken in the mid 70`s and I would like some comments on them. Most were sent to NICAP in the USA and they can`t give me a good reply. This is of of them and were taken around the Southern Cross with a time exposure of 10 minutes.

Router or Browser ??

I did his as one of my off the wall experiments and was surprised at the response, as I never told anyone. The writing of blogs on `Word` worked OK but I couldn`t get .gif files to upload and work.

This is Alice making a wallow.


I still don`t know whether to call Alice `Router` or `Browser` :-)


My Night Sky.

These are some time delay shots of the night sky. The straight one is a shooting star the other has not yet been explained. These were taken in Cape Town many years ago on black and white film which was rated at 1500 ASA. I was taking pictures around the Southern Cross with exposures of a few minutes.You can see the effect of the Earths spin by the elongated star tracks.

This next one was sent to NICAP in the USA who do research into Aerial Phenomena. With this comparison you can see it was traveling faster than the spin of the Earth. I sent a copy to the newspapers but they contacted CSIR and they said it could not be published. At that time there was a UFO reported landing in Beaufort West and it was fired on by the SAP, so they were sensitive times.
