November made a spectacular exit today, beautiful light streaming in through my workroom window, followed by a burning red and pink sunset. I've been chained to my desk, well only metaphorically, but couldn't leave my room so grabbed my camera and photographed these two old beauties from within arms reach The top picture is a fabric case for my Bakelite Kodak Brownie bought second hand many years ago. It has been lovingly embellished with badges from around Wales. Incidentally Bakelite is a brand but the material has the very catchy name polyoxybenzylmethylenglycolanhydride and was invented by a Belgian. There we've all learnt something today!
