      Evening all,
      For those who have followed my photos will know that when I get back from a few days in Belgium, etc - I don't tend to process my photos and make up a set that quick - therefore I can spent weeks trickling them onto FB and Flickr. Basically not to flood the boards and give people headaches.
      So, following this weekends jaunt to Belgium which involved a few old but mostly new sites, here are some edits for now. Back to work today so processing images and editing will be mostly evenings.
      Hope you like.

      Thanks for looking in.
