28th February 2005 Looks like Jesus is on the 0824 to Waterloo, though even he can't prevent it being delayed.  Posted by Hello

Something Odd about Mrs Lemon's

What is odd is that I am embarrassed (never could spell that word) at the thought of anyone actually reading this blog or looking at the pictures, especially the ludicrous self-portraits. And yet... and yet I compulsively post. It isn't beyond the realms of probability that I need therapy.
27th February 2005 Check out those window pots - there's something suspicious about them is there not?  Posted by Hello
26th February 2005. Again, apologies for more self-portraiture. Better and more interesting pics will follow. In the meantime, don't you think that this looks like the frontispiece for a corporate brochure c.1972? Or perhaps the publicity photo for a singer/songwriter whose career is on the slide?
And another thing: why don't advertisers ever allow question marks at the end of questions in their press and poster campaigns - do they think it will somehow make them look unsure of themselves or weak if they properly punctuate their work. (Sic). (Picture removed on grounds of unctiousness). Posted by Hello
25th February 2005 Snow dans la jardin prior to leaving for work. I learnt earlier from somewhere on the web (sorry, forgotten where) that snow under a grey sky is best taken at exposure +1 stop. Try it people - you'll be surprised.  Posted by Hello

Iran

The trouble is, the more the theocracy there misbehaves (for example by sending bloggers to jail), the more I want to support George Bush and his eventual attack on that evil state. And that cannot be a good thing. What to do? Where does a liberal who wants to see change in the Arab / religious world (i.e. the take up of democracy) turn?

24th February 2005 I like this one - it has a Matrix feel to it (the first one, not the silly sequels).  Posted by Hello
23rd February 2005 Only a few more days of this, the worst of months, to get through now...  Posted by Hello

No Justice

It's a shame there is no hell (just as there is no god) as otherwise Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomenei, and current Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, would be sure to be heading there following yesterday's outrageous sentence of an Iranian Blogger for, inter alia, insulting these two charmers. Ah what it is to live side-by-side with the Middle Ages.

22nd February 2005 At work buying my morning latte with an extra shot. Apologies for all the self-portraits of late - I'm not confident in taking pics of other people (and generally won't post them on here without permission if I ever do snap them), and it is too cold to go out at lunchtime. However, I will try and do better from now on.  Posted by Hello

Free Mojtaba and Arash

This link (you may have to cut and paste) will take you to a site explaining who Mojtaba and Arash are and why it is important that something is done about their having been locked up. While you're about it, why not join Amnest International? There are few better causes.

If you haven't read about this yet, make your way over to Salon or gay365.com for what promises to be something marvellous.

13th February 2005 We have a working tv now - you can probably tell from the vacuity of the eyes.  Posted by Hello
14th Rebruary 2005. A work nightmare and I apologise for not making today more romantic.  Posted by Hello

12th Feb 2005 Sorry about the execrable quality. Shown are a few of the cards put through our door recently offering a car service. I might have to collect a years worth for better comparison.  Posted by Hello

10th February 2005 Dirty Den captured on the computer (aerial man came today to put up new, larger jobby - seems to have done the trick). Den - I tried to smooth out your face a bit but sorry, the software wasn't strong enough, hence I went for this mashed-up look. Though I like it, the big question is, what will Walfordians make of it? Posted by Hello

6th February 2005. Reminds me of "Boney" Wheeler.  Posted by Hello

4th January 2005 From the irritatingly cryptic to the plain dull. You'll have to forgive me - I'm just now learning about Photoshop (Adobe's PDFs may be intensely annoying but you have to hand it to them for Photoshop).  Posted by Hello

Welcome to Mrs Lemon's: Sic transit gloria mundi.

See more at http://patrickdoddsphotography.co.uk .

Something of an online zibaldone, albeit not on Tumblr where one might otherwise expect to find such things, "Mrs Lemon's Visit to Japan" takes its name from a poster seen in Cornwall advertising a talk at the local Women's Institute. I hope there is something here you like.

NB If you go back in time far enough on here some of the photos start to disappear - not sure why. Whatever is happening with the missing pictures, apologies.
