Photo of Anna and a Camera

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

OK, I admit that isn’t the best post title I have ever come up with, but it was all I could think of.
Can you guess what the picture below will be of yet?
Shot at home in Clydach on the 1st of May, with Anna sitting up (just for a couple of minutes) on the sofa. I think this is the first photo from this batch of ‘found’ pictures, that is taking us beyond the last picture posted when we were back in Britain still.

Dad Don’t Moan – The Other Ones Had Stranger Looks!

Friday, April 24th, 2009

These ARE photos from a day that has already been posted about – 25th April when my brother, Nick, and Dad came over to Wales for a birthday meal. We went to an New York-Italian restaurant, and I loved the food and company. For complicated filing reasons, these photos aren’t residing in my ‘not yet published’ folder within Anna’s archives, so I wanted to post the pictures now, so I can close a Windows Explorer window I’ve had open for a few days as a reminder to publish them.

wow, just looked at the photos properly – Anna looks so tiny in comparison to now, sat in her car seat there!

Crap, for some reason Google Maps doesn’t want to play nice and allow me to create the embed code for this area. Click the is.gd link above to be taken to the correct area.

Park By The Pub With A Crazy Golf Course

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

4th April – I’ll try and remember to update this post’s title when I discover the real name for the park in Swansea. I think I tweeted from there, and possibly originally included a snapshot from my phone and the GPS location. Anyway, Irina and I originally visited this area (Sketty Lane? Rd?) a few years ago, and wanted to take Anna there before we left for Kazakhstan. You can’t quite walk right around the little pond there unless the sun has dried out the muddy patches, but Gwen enjoyed the trip, and we popped over the road to see the beach before we left. Which reminds me, if anyone found our cute little baby toy, that can be suspended from a pram’s handle, in the area, let me know :(

It looks as though there weren’t any photos taken on Irina’s camera for another three weeks. I’m guessing Anna’s immunizations, drop in clinics, my and John’s 30th and 60th birthdays, preparations for moving to Kazakhstan and other assorted distractions kept us from taking many shots. Or I just forgot to copy them over from the memory card. Anyway, one more post to go before I’ve emptied the hard drive of Anna Photos. This batch of posts were originally written around 16th/17th May, and scheduled for publishing over a week or so, to ensure people had a chance to see the pictures before they dropped off the bottom of the first page, and also as a rather blatant attempt to encourage people to become regular visitors here :)
