Gary Willis - the Scotland team coach - getting ready to pass a drink to one of the team.

It's a lot harder than it looks - I have been on special training courses just to pass a bottle you know.....

May Morning

I seem to have been travelling non stop for weeks now, so I enjoyed a very peaceful walk along the beach this morning. Sheltered from the wind, the Firth was as still as a Lochan.

Voting Booth

The voting Booth in Cromarty's Victoria Hall, and my voting papers. Note the "how to vote" poster on the wall.

Someone has now told me that is illegal to take photos of voting papers. I'll have to check.

This photo has been used to illustrate an Alastair Gray essay on last weeks Scottish Elections - see

Polling Station

Polling Station, originally uploaded by ccgd.

Scottish Parliament Elections 3rd May 2007. Polling in the Victoria Hall, Cromarty. I took my camera, as it had occurred to me that the everyday process of voting is very rarely captured. So I took a modest series of four shots that recorded my voting process n the day.

However I took this snap without asking - and was gently chided by Mr Cope - on the left - however he seemed happy enough when I told that I was recording for prosperity.

This shot is also on the Cromarty Image Library.
