HAPPY NEW YEAR (31/12/10)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  Thank you all for visiting……………it’s been a mixed year for me but we are still here.

I wish you all health, happiness, prosperity and most of all satisfaction in 2011.

PS. I hope you can read my writing…………Answer tomorrow.


  1. Happy New Year to you also Adrian.
    Very clever - if you were in front of the camera than you must have written it backwards, even cleverer.

  2. I was but wrote it normally then flipped the image horizontally.......still took several goes.

  3. Have a really good New Year Adrian.

    I've enjoyed all your posts this year, and look forward to many more to come. All the best.

  4. Keith and the same to you. Sorry about the strobes on the duck but the CAA say they all have to have them. Elf and Safty........they have been flying with minimal problems for eons.....Not the point the point is they are safer with nav lights.

  5. Have a great New Year. We do not get birds like that with lights on and landing gear.

  6. Trevor, same to you............t'will be compulsory for birds to display lights shortly....'Shortly'..As in I'll be there shortly!

  7. Happy New Year Adrian. I love what you've done with the picture. :)

  8. I have a mixed year too!
    I wish you a Great New Year!
    My regards!

  9. Happy New Year, Adrian, may it be a happy and productive one for you and your camera. Oh, and the dogs. I look forward to another year of your photos and humour.

  10. Hang on a minute! Is this a trick? I can't tell left from right but I can tell port from starboard. Or is the duck really flying towards me?

    I hope that 2011 is a Good Year for you and that your devotees are able to benefit from your wit and wisdom in plenty for the year to come.

  11. A very Happy New Year to you from all the way over here. Your greeting lit many a smile, I'm sure ~ Looking forward to more fotos, funnies, and fits of giggles :)

  12. I hope you have a very happy new year.
    it is A wonderful 2011.

    For you and yours, this year is filled with healthy and prosperity and delight.

    Thank you.

  13. Lesley, thank you.

    Wind,let us hope and work for the best.

    Pauline , thanks.....I'll do my best.

    Graham, how embarrassing. Thought about it as of course one wouldn't see it's nav lights from this angle. I'm cracking up.

    Glo, thank you only too happy to please.

    Ruma, many thanks and you have a wonderful year.

  15. My 2010 started off badly before getting into an unusual groove. There were disappointing things about the year although travelling was not one of them. It has been great to follow you since ... whenever it was (july,august) and look forward to more from you in 2011. Happy New Year.
    .... just wondering whether the bird has got clearance and permission to land !!

  16. Happy New Year, Adrian, and may 2012 be good--with fewer bad days in the mix! Love the photo and the sense of humor, like always.

  17. Dear Adrian, thank you for your good wishes! I think you are right, saying that not every wish should be come true...... We should save some for the next year;-)) All the best from Luzia.

  18. Happy New Year Adrian,I look forward to another year of your travels,photos and banter.
    Best wishes Carolyn.

  19. I hope you had a safe landing in the New Year...!

  20. It's time to check in with us ~ wanting to make sure you are not stuck in a snowbank!

  21. Where are you?
    The birds are waiting! ha ha
    I wish you a great weekend!

  22. Are you ok Adrian we are worried. xx

  23. Hey, friend!
    What's up?
    I have some birds for you!
    I wish you a good week!
    Mama mia, I am worried!

  24. Thanks one and all......No problems, no internet either!
    January is a bit like that as many places are closed and those open are pretty basic.
    There has been very little worth posting as the New Year dawned to disgusting weather.
    It's good to be missed and thanks again for your concern.
