A group of swans on the shoreline of a beach in a bay on a sunny day. A blackberry bush in the foreground with a lake and green hills in the background under a clear blue sky.

Up and about in the morning.

A super-cute little brown-haired dog with an adorable face full of character (and tongue out). A large white short-haired ‘doo of some kind that looks like it’s smiling.

Still thinking about these good doggos from Bark In The Park yesterday.

TIL: You Can Access A User’s Camera with Just HTML

The capture attribute is pretty nifty—and I just love that you get so much power in a declarative way:

A fluffy tabby cat all curled up indoors, with its eyes closed, looking very content indeed. A fluffy tabby cat lying on its back outdoors looking very content.

Not my cat, but I’m very fond of her.

A table full of large plates of traditional pub grub like fish’n’chips and a ploughman’s, with smaller plates of olives and Padron peppers. Jessica in a pub garden with a table full of food. Quaint half-timbered houses with an old red telephone box in front of them and green hills behind.

Pub lunch in Fulking.

A white horse carved into a distant hillside overlooks trees and grass. A simple wooden bench overlooking a green meadow. A family of swans dozing on the bank of a quiet river.

Won’t you meet me in the country in the summertime in England, won’t you meet me?

Jessica wearing a hand-knitted shawl standing in front of a beautiful field of vines. Appetisers against the beautiful backdrop of the vineyard. A seasonal tomato-based dish with a refreshing glass of white wine with a picturesque valley in the background. A delicious dish of sea bass.

Taking @wordridden to Rathfinney for her birthday.

A vivid red rose in a church graveyard. A charming old church with an overgrown churchyard and easy trees on either side. A pint of refreshing ale on tiled tabletop in an outdoor courtyard. The glass is labelled Long Man: naturally excellent beer. A thatched-roofed half-timber house in the background, grave markers in the foreground, and trees all around.

Out and about in Alfriston.

The Carina nebula in incredible detail; a wave of orange gas before a deep blue background, with sparkling stars scattered throughout. A dying star creates a beautiful ring of gas expnding outwards, blue in the centre and orange at the edges. A cluster of five galaxies, one of them closer to us, the other four interacting in a cosmic dance of gravity.

Pipers, fiddlers and box players. Fiddle, flute, accordion and banjo players.

Playing all afternoon.

Matt Molloy, Sean Keane and others playing in a tightly packed session. A group of musicians tucked into the corner of the Armada hotel bar.

Whole lotta sessions goin’ on.

Clusters of tiny mussels between larger limpets on a rock. A rock pool filled with seaweed and shells. Seaweed on rocks. Waves lapping against a rocky shoreline.

Rockpooling at Spanish Point.

A close-up of the round yellow sticker that reads The Session. An instrument case sporting a round yellow sticker with the words The Session.

Cows gathered in the corner of a field. A narrow road between two green fields stretches all the way to the horizon. A green field under a blue sky with silver-white clouds. Waves lapping at a sandy beach under a dramatic cloudy sky.

Exploring the neighbourhood.

Cameron smiling in front of Brighton’s futuristic-looking i360, a moving torus on a tall steel tower. Cameron clutching his cutlery and grinning over an overloaded plate of Sunday roast in a very British pub.

A middle-aged woman playing fiddle in a pub. A young man perched on a stool playing fiddle while a young woman looks on from the bar. An elderly gent perched on a stool playing fiddle.

Fiddlers Roger, Rob, and Frances.

The moon above a canal. In the foreground bicycles are lined up on a canal bridge. A canal at night, the still waters reflecting the lights from the houses on each side. A row of tall thin houses painted black with white windowsills. Herring in bread with raw onion and pickles.

A nice day in Amsterdam.

A water-level view of one of Amsterdam’s tree-lined canals. A group of happy people socialising inside a boat.
