The Times would like to feature my blog!

The Times is a daily national newspaper published in the United Kingdom since 1785, when it was known as The Daily Universal Register.
Wikipedia - The Times
Today a journalist contacted me to ask whether I could supply images for a feature on my website.  Greatly intrigued I asked for more information.

It was a very nice surprise to find that The Times Newspaper has a feature page called the Daily Universal Register (after the newspaper's original title).

The page covers a miscellany of small interesting items. Each day it includes a focus on a particular website.  Tomorrow it looks as if it might well be the turn of Travels with a Sketchbook!

[UPDATE:  Here's a link to the feature]

I've supplied a couple of images so we'll have to see which one comes up.  One of them (see top) is one I did last year for this post St John Bread and Wine, Spitalfields.

I shall be rushing out in the morning to go and buy a proper copy of The Times to see if my blog is in "proper print"!

Too right Deborah - today I got as far as the tube before realising I needed to come home again.
