Making loans to my (adult) children has been easy, if not sweet. Getting them to accept they were loans not gifts- forget it, they've lost interest in paying back!

Welcome to PF!  :welcome:

Apparently, I'm late to the party. We've already gotten to the Babylonians.

Hello and welcome! As someone else mentioned, the photos available on your blog are very crisp and clean indeed (Definitely something I’m trying to learn more about). Excited to see more for sure.

Thank you Ismene! It's nice to meet people from across the pond!

Hi Brian, thank you for your encouragement. They come out surprisingly well given the amateurish process I'm using, which probably says more about the advance of technology than my photography skills! I've just been using a sheet and the camera on my (really quite inexpensive) smartphone. I then cut the image from the photograph using the 'Smart Select' function in Microsoft Paint 3D and paste them onto a white background in Paint. The images are then set to a standard size (500*500 pixels) and saved as .png files. I'm going to buy a pop-up photography light box to make the process slightly more professional!  ;D
