The sun is out and so is the camera

“When you least expect it, you hear the dreadful click which is driving the world mad…  Wherever you be, on land or sea, you hear that awful click of the amateur photographer, Click, Click, Click.”

Reading again

After months of being unable to read books I can read again and because of my cravings have already devoured half a dozen books.  According to the Christian Miscellany and Family Visitor (c1869) there is no hope for me....

“Novel reading tends to inflame the passions, pollute the imagination, and corrupt the heart.  It frequently becomes an inveterate habit, strong and fatal as that of a drunkard.  In this state of intoxication, great waywardness of conduct is always sure to follow.  Even when the habit is renounced, and genuine reformation takes place, the individual always suffers the cravings of former excitement.”
