If Jinty begins with a capital letter, then it's a proper noun.

Agreed!

At the risk of hijacking the thread:
"A common noun refers to a class of entity (e.g. dog), whereas a proper noun refers to an individual entity (e.g. John or Kennedy) or a collection of entities (e.g. Hebrides). Proper nouns are normally invariant for number: most are singular, but a few, referring for instance to mountain ranges or groups of islands, are plural (e.g. Hebrides). Typically, English proper nouns are not preceded by an article (the or a) or other determiners (not, for instance, a John, the Kennedy, or many Hebrides). "

When I photographed the Jubilee sequence I ended it with the shot of the loco coupled up to its train (post #1168) but I thought perhaps we should see it on its way. Which really means getting a shot of it in the short cutting between the road bridge and the tunnel portal. There's no way of getting the camera into a good position if it's on the tripod so this pic is a hand-held quarter second exposure with the camera braced against the back-, or rather side-, scene.

Again, another superb photo. You have a much steadier hand than I do.
You know you're getting older when your mind makes commitments your body can't meet.

Sometimes when I start making trees I just can't stop!

A really impresive set of trees.  I like the way that the roots can be used to stabilise the trunks.
With kind regards
