In Part One's selection from 30-odd years of print scans, we learn how semi-fish see things and look at some mystery landscapes (all pics probably from the 1990s), while part two gets down with some of the critters and flora from the here and recently (end April).

First, three with the semi-fisheye lens

Glade

Image
Varda

Image
Nemesis

Image
Pots
Whichford pottery in the south Midlands, near the Rollright Stones

Two pics could be anywhere, although if they are tied to the Whichford pottery one, somewhere between Long Compton and Bristol

home of Bath race-course
