  1. Image courtesy of Tim Penycate, who writes: “Not so much an English country garden as an English country railway station with an English country garden attached! Some beautiful flowers brighten up a dull day at Ropley Station on the Mid Hants Railway!” The Midhants Railway, in the South of England, is otherwise known as the "Watercress Line." It is very popular with local tourists and day trippers who love to ride the trains which are hauled by some beautiful old preserved steam locomotives.

  3. The view from my brother's front garden at Livefoods UK in Rooksbridge, Somerset, in the South of England. You can check out the Livefoods UK facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/livefood/ The pond, surrounded by flowers, contains some nice koi and it is set against a backdrop of beautiful Somerset countryside and farmland on a sunny day in early summer.

    I am not planning to get into cat photography in any big way. Just an album snap shots of the odd cat or two!
  5. Just a few photos that were taken in and around the Hogmoor Inclosure in Whitehill, Hampshire in the South of England. artfreaks.com needs a lot of new content, (among other things,) in order to regain any semblance of the search engine rankings which the site used to enjoy years ago. Well... The photography in this album is nothing special - just random snapshots that I took on my cellphone. But I pay enough every month for the server on which this site runs, so I just decided to upload my content to my site - not someone else's... I am sure that Facebook can manage without it!!
  6. Work sucks but being out of a job or without work, (if you are self-employed,) sucks even more...
  7. Please feel free to take eight years to respond - as long as you come back to artfreak.com some day. We miss you!
  8. Have you got any news on the book for us yet, Eduardo? So what have you been up too lately?
  9. It's a very moving poem. I hope that things worked out OK for you and your two friends!

    Nice photo, Jim!
  11. Wow! I didn't realise that you can get premium quality soft pastels on Amazon.com...!! I like Amazon. I have only really ever bought books from them, in the past... I've never had a problem. Those books that I have bought from them have always been delivered on time - (or, very often, in advance of the estimated delivery date) - and in perfect condition. Also, as an affiliate, they have always been very good to me... Even when artfreaks.com had been suffering and referrals dropped to nothing from one month to the next, they never even hinted at terminating our agreement. So yes, I like Amazon! And I am very pleased to see that aside from the Schmingke Soft Pastels and the beautifully boxed sets of Sennelier Soft Pastels that I referred to in the previous post to this topic, I can even order my all-time favourite soft pastels from them... Unison Soft Pastels Unison is a true soft pastel. Very nice to work with. But what I like the most is the super vibrancy of some of their colours... Some of them even seem to have an almost fluorescent glow! The company that makes Unison Soft Pastels is a fairly small enterprise and it is based in the UK. If I remember correctly, I first came across their wonderful pastels in an art shop in the city of Bruges. I have also seen them in Victoria B.C., Canada so they do seem to be exporting them around the world. And, of course, you can always get hold of them at Amazon.com!

  12. There's a crack on his back, running almost down to the crack of his arse...
  13. Catch 22, The Choir Boys and, of course, Lord of the Rings are three more of the unforgettable books that I have read in my life. All of these are due for a re-read when I get old and retired - and I have the time... (Or, before - if I ever master the art of speed reading!!)
  14. Hi Edwardo! When were you last on artfreaks.com?

    It's time to pay us a visit!!
