This post is for Natalie d’Arbeloff – to take her mind off things for a bit.

This morning was autumnally beautiful. We were to expect the arrival of some friends so, rather than start something I could not finish, I grabbed the camera. Encouraged by the fact that some folk said they liked the beach photos below, I wondered whether I could attempt to do the same picture-finding process in the garden. What do you think?

and finally . . .

The portrait of a very shy goldfish!
