My friend Anne is gifted with a sense of style and self confidence that really impresses me. Anne loves portraits, and so it has come up in conversation as a possible thing to do for a long time; you can imagine my excitement when we finally decided we should do a portrait rather than vaguely…

My lovely colleague and friend Fiona had so many complements on her outfit (including mine) that I felt fate was dictating that I had to take her picture. This portrait enthusiast knows that the fates must never be challenged, and so bowed with good grace to the only wise course of action available. ISo 200,…

    Wow, looks like you all had a superb w/e. Can I ask if the ‘puffer’ was the one used in ‘Para Handy’? I seem to remember that it was berthed at the Crinan Canal at one time…

    You have confirmed my thoughts that you can believe little you read on the internet with your words “a leading light in that community”.
    Thanks for the great series of photos Matt. Dick and Jacqui have been fabulous hosts, making my stay very entertaining, and it was a real pleasure to meet you too, and it was a pity you couldn’t stay with us longer. Your music skills added to the visit.
