Now on Tumblr!

At last I have succumbed to the lure of Tumblr; not because I especially like it but more because I wanted a direct route from here to there.
From now on, every image that I post here will also be posted at Kronstadt '21. There you will also find other assorted oddments that arouse, interest or thrill me, some bad photography, the occasional quote that I think makes me appear intelligent or mysterious to those that don't know how unintelligent or transparent I really am and probably a great deal of arse.

Good day.
