Am I the only one to think that voting with a pencil is a strange phenomenon?

The incredible beauty and wonder of creation. A passing through moth, writes HOT’s Zelly Restorick, spending a few breaths of its life at the bottom of my front door, spotted by observant friend and steady handed photographer, Rhian Thomas.

A rare sunny day

What a difference a day makes…..Here’s the sea on Saturday – I don’t know about anyone else, but I find it very hard to get good pictures of waves. No sooner is the camera primed and ready than it shakes in the wind, spray blows in my eyes, then the waves subside and reappear further down the beach. Yesterday a stinging hail shower finally put paid to my efforts.  Hastings Battleaxe comes out in the sunshine – a long blog post for a long walk!

It’s the second week of January and I believe it’s almost safe to come out again now. Despite all the festive fun and spending spirit, I managed to get out and about a few times… this is what’s caught my eye. Photos, cartoons and ponderings by HOT’s Zelly Restorick.
