Some tickets and stuff I brought back from my recent adventure abroad, the best being the Johnnie Walker Explorers’ Club Edition.
I had planned to do a wee photograph of the map with bits and pieces from my trip around it the Explorer edition whisky from my good lady finishes it off I think.

“Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots?”

Quite like this photograph of this fine looking leopard. Probably about a foot away from me although we were separated by a fairly sturdy piece of glass.

Pressed publish instead of preview so might add to this one later.

Quite possibly one of the finest zoos you can visit, if you’re ever in the Fuengirola area check out the Bio Park and take a walk around the lemurs.

Upcoming corrida at La Malagueta

Someone has written ‘becerros y afeitados’ which translates as ‘calves and shaved’
The poster celebrates 100 years since Joselito and Belmonte began their friendly mano a mano competition which would last until Joselito’s death on the horns of a bull called Dancer in 1920.

Plaza Antonio Ordonez his ashes lie under the ‘toril’ gate which is opened to let the bulls in. His rivalry with his brother in law Luis Miguel Dominguin is remembered in Hemmigway’s The Dangerous Summer

A wee trip down to Glenesk Park today to see Dundee Violet entertain top of the table Fauldhouse United. Hopefully the photographs look alright because the post match hospitality was rather enjoyable.

Fauldhouse United go a goal up with a sweetly struck free kick. Would the Pansies have a retort?

The finely struck sixth goal of the match, the Pansies bring it back to 3-3 with the last kick of the game.

The agony and the ecstasy.

The Pansies celebrate in the corner, top of the table Fauldhouse are gutted!

The second match I’ve been shooting at and the second match a keeper has asked if I got any good ones of themselves. Next time I’ll focus exclusively on the goal keeper and between the sticks a place for the phony tough and crazy brave.
