Archie loves his little patch of fyansford

This is the latest iteration of Archie's blog. We thank the moderator of Fyansford Community Noticeboard for suggesting we refrain from posting on his site as Archie's posts perhaps would be more suited on a different blog; hence Archie's Turf, which will comprise posts based on Archie's P&P (his real home-turf) followed by our neighbourhood walk. Each photoshoot will have a different focus.

Take me there

Happy Birthday, Archie!

Big cuddles, big boy!

Carn, Archie, put your hat on...

No, you don't blow it, or bite it...

Big cuddles, big boy!

Archie's P&P Time

A necessary part of our daily routine ~ that 10 minutes immediately after getting up and before we depart for our daily around-a-block walk. That time when Archie does his business in order that he won't have to "drop a landmine" during our shared time out in the neighbourhood.

Take me there...

Psssst!

 

In truth, at a purely personal level, this is a daily photographic "distraction' for me.

I have several rules which guide my photoshoots

  • all photos are taken with my iPhone,

  • all photos are taken from public property (footpaths, parklands, streets or river banks). I encroach on a front garden only with owners' permission (e.g. close-ups of Lauren's  imaginings).

  • I restrict myself to taking a single photo of each aspect.

  • The shoot is restricted to a circuit of one neighbourhood block (approx. 15-20 minutes).

  • On returning home I allow an hour for editing and posting of photos.

  • I minimise personally-identifying features (house numbers, number plates., personal portraits, etc. 

If any member of my community would prefer a photo to be withdrawn please let me know (Fyansford.com@gmail.com)

aleast once every month I try to take Archie for an adventure ~ to some more-distant Fyansford landmark.

Sure it means a drive in the car; but that's all part of the outing...

One restriction - I have to be able to navigate the terrain

If you own #56 and feel this is an invasion

of your privacy I'll remove it from my page.

It's just that I thought it delightful...

We have been wondering when the first blooms would appear....

Happy Easter, Archie!

No walkies this morning. Instead, Archie got

a bit of a surprise.

Into the bath he went.
