Mountain of Photography

July was a nice month for good weather, and I happened to have something planned on the weekend where decent weather followed. Camping trip with hikes and walks in the Lake District was different from normal but welcoming experience. Day 1: Hiking up a mountain and the name of that particular one escapes me at…

A Replacement Printer

Having some ink left over from an old printer played a small part in a decision to replace it, with the exact same model. The EPSON WorkForce 7610D turned out to be an extremely useful printer in my case: The WiFi printing, you do not need wires to print. The ability to scan in A3…
