Welcome to Planet Gary, a quaint but otherwise interesting little planet located at the quiet end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy, well, actually in the small town of Bonnyrigg, Midlothian, just a few miles south of Edinburgh, the Scottish capital. This is where I eat, sleep, blog, rest, scoot, walk, collect, snap, film, watch, spot, cycle, turf and repeat, as well as posting a few highly inaccurate and miss-spelt words and essentially spending my retirement doing the things that need to be done, such as getting up in early the morning, eating peanut butter on toast for breakfast and all the other hum-drum, sometimes pointless, but otherwise necessary ways and means of staying alive but most of all having a good time.

Having said all that, I mostly take photographs, lots of photographs, in fact, thousands of photographs. I also cycle my bicycles, scoot my kick scooters, collect samples of sand, yes sand, and go out brick spotting, trig point bagging and even bing bagging as well as playing the amazing Game of Turf. Here on Planet Gary, I want to share some of the amazing sights, far from normal activities, strange phenomenon and everyday goings-on that are part of my world, and yes, this blog is all about me, Gary Buckham, so anything may happen. You have been warned. And finally, I have a quest. And that quest is to find the Scone of Scones, the King Scone, the best scone in Scotland. It will mean consuming many a scone but one must sometimes be prepared for hardship in the search for excellence.

Thank you for visiting,
