Photos of Ethiopia

I can't believe it is nearly 4 months since my last post.  Since I returned home just before Christmas I have been busy trying to edit and organise my 2,000 images while watching the tennis in January and trying to get the overgrown garden under control.  I really have had nothing to put on the blog.  But last week my regular printmaking and art groups have started again so maybe I'll produce something to add to this blog.

I took most photos in Ethiopia as it was a photographic trip - a great experience and highly recommended.  I've just posted 361 photos of Ethiopia on Flickr and I'll try and post the slideshow from there on this blog.  But in case it doesn't work with so many images, here is the link    http://www.flickr.com/photos/banksias/sets/72157629280580751/detail/  You can then press slideshow on the Flickr page so you can view in fullscreen mode.  Hope you enjoy them.

It appears that I have somehow got some of the pictures to appear below so it will give you a  taste of what they are like.  So press the link to see them all larger as I mentioned above.
