- Murray at Clive's House

(Thanks to Murray for his great photos today - taken on his iPad using the Hipstamatic App - he loves the photo effect and photographing everything in the house - thankfully Mom hid because she was still in her jammies at lunch-time!)


  1. Beautiful series of photos - I really like the first one of Clive!


  2. Merry Christmas! And happy St. Stephen's Day! Excellent photos - very artistic and they really capture the sense of the season. BTW, Mom is chuckling at the Madeline and Tintin books - she got some of those for Christmas when SHE was a kid (which was, like, a million years ago!). Her parents used to fly to London every year (they all lived in Saudi Arabia when Mom was a youngster) and go shopping for her - your books made her smile!

  4. Very nice shots! I do love Hipstamatic!

    And jammies at lunch time - pure bliss!

  5. Awesome photos, Murray! Looks like Santa was really good to you this year - way to go!
