Problem with "Contact" Form
I have become aware that the contact form I've been using to allow people to contact me of this, and my railway sites has stopped working at some point in the last few months.  Upon investigating with the provider, it seems that they have withdrawn this service and I was not aware that they had done so.   However, my HTML5 design software provides this facility as an internal feature, and I have managed to set up a replacement, which for the moment has been tacked onto a a collection conversion.   At this point, the links at the top level of the site should now work, but the links on the individual ones don't (apart from the collection with the page added), and I will need to fix these at some point, as well as those on my railway sites.   
I apologise for anyone who has tried to contact me using this method and got an error message; the link above should now work. 
As can be seen from the home page, I made it to Dorset and the Perrygrove Railway's autumn gala, and thus September has been one of the more successful months for photography for me in 2018.   At this point I would say that I am doing better than in 2017, but not as well as I had wanted to do for this year.  That saying, I've crossed off two of the items from my wishlist for the year; I've been to Dorset and have visited two National Trust properties for the first time (the second one being Stourhead).
The Dorset holiday coincided with a week of good weather, with only the Thursday afternoon spoiling things somewhat by forcing me to drop a planned night session.   Other than that, I did most of what I had planned to do, and obtained some great photographs in the process.   At this point most have been dealt with, but there are some from Swanage Town and the Swanage Railway that are still being worked on, and I hope to have these onto the site during October. 
Unfortunately, the weather changed somewhat for the worse on the day I returned and my session on the Perrygrove Railway wasn't under the sunny conditions that had prevailed on my previous visits.  As a result I left earlier I had planned under the assumption that the weather was about get worse, only to realise on my way home that it was actually getting better.   I did succeed in photographing the two visiting locomotives though. 
No collections were converted to HTML5 during the month as I was too busy with new work, and most of the collections needed for the new items had already been done.   I have however, identified two collections that I will need to do as a priority due to having photographs to add to them.
I have, after much consideration, added a collection of photographs relating to the Cotswold Hare Trail of 2018.   Unfortunately, circumstances over the summer meant that I could not pursue this project to the level that I wanted, but feel that the few photographs I did manage deserve to be made public.   This also means that July 2018 does now show as having some photography done during it. 
There are a lot of things that I would like to do in October, but only a limited time in which to do them in.  Ultimately it will probably come to down to how much time I have available to me, and what the weather does, but I hope to be able to fit at least one NT property and one heritage railway visit in. 
I've left the "Snowdrop" photograph in the slideshow as it's possible that its link wasn't working properly in September (although I'm fairly certain I tested it). 
Event Collections
With regards to the ongoing HTML5 conversion, I have been giving the matter of which event collections to convert and which could probably be discarded.  A lot of the event collections contain 100 photographs or more and converting these is time-consuming.   Add to that the fact that I am constantly adding new events is likely to result in the gallery becoming somewhat bloated, so I am currently considering the following procedures to implement over the next few months:
My current plan is to convert the top levels of this site to HTML5 at some point in either late 2018 or early 2019, at which point those collections which I don't intend to convert will be removed from the site. 
Also, from October 2018, I will cease to add new collection links to the existing mobile gallery indexes as I feel that it is no longer worth the effort for something that I intend to scrap shortly.  I don't expect to be adding many new collections in the remainder of 2018 anyway. 
Mousemats and Mugs
I have decided that I probably won't be restoring the custom mousemats to this site any time soon, as I have concerns about the products as a whole which might be cause for complaint.   However, I have not any issues so far with the custom mugs I have ordered and these may well be restored when the gallery indexes are changed to HTML5.
