Day 147~366

It get’s a bit intense just focussing on the tree everyday, I’ve found that doing the 366 is so all-absorbing that I don’t take many photo’s of anything else, except iPhone shots of the cat being cute. It’s rained a mighty amount over the past 2 1/2 days and nights, but today it stopped in the afternoon so I went to the tree without the brolly, and found the world after the rain looked really pretty.  I sometimes rage against the weather for keeping me in and stopping me going out to play with my camera, and I miss going…

Day 50~366. A rant!

So I went for my walk this morning, into the woodlands over the road from my house. As we’d had 2 sunny days I wasn’t expecting I had my walking boots on so ploughed on over the swamp, and increasingly had to dodge dog poo, what is wrong with these dog people?? Not only do some of them not poopascoop their mess, the ones that do bag it up then tie the bags up and fling them up into the tree branches or bushes, or just on the ground. I really like doggies, but the owners who walk in this…

A woeful week

It started off well enough on Monday, with lovely blue skies and nice drives out in the country to see some far flung clients.  On Monday I spotted the snail~mail and dumb~phone combo on one of my journey’s   and on Tuesday I spotted this field, in which the lake pond thing, I think, is a consequence of the heavy rainfall we’ve had over the past couple of years. Lots of farm land has been flooded over the past couple of years and some of the resultant ponds have never quite retreated. You can see a fence trotting out into…

Caged Bird

  Caged Bird BY MAYA ANGELOU A free bird leaps on the back of the wind and floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wing in the orange sun rays and dares to claim the sky. But a bird that stalks down his narrow cage can seldom see through his bars of rage his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings…

Week + 1

Am a day late for the weekly, blog, no doubt I saw sorely missed :). A lot to get through this week as it’s been particularly full. Am going to blast through Monday,Tuesday & Wednesday as they were just work days and therefore no fun. But I kept to my daily photo regimen so they must appear. Monday I worked north of the River and had to come home in the crappy traffic in rush hour, so took a shot of the Tyne Bridge while I was stationary. Well almost stationary :). Tuesday was a day mostly working in Sunderland,…

another week

As always work was busy, lots of problem solving and gnashing of teeth. Didn’t get chance to take any photo’s on Monday or Tuesday, but Wednesday I was able to have a quick lunch break at Woodhorn, and got to see the swans I was going to get out and take some shots, but this one decided to have a lie down by my car door, and I didn’t want to upset him!   Thursday was one of those days off I have that I end up working, but when I got home Phil and I went to our fave…

Fraggles weekly round up.

Well the week started off Ok with nice weather, and I have made a decision to take some form of photograph every day, which isn’t always easy when work is so busy. Somehow I forgot to do one on Monday 😀 so that was a great start! Tuesday   This was my first day at a new clinic starting at Age UK Gateshead. The shop is in quite a rundown part of Gateshead, but the lady running it is lovely, I had a nice quiet room to do my tests in and both my clients had too much wax in…

Letter to America

I took this shot back in April 2012. I had decided to visit America, and I got the piggy from Amazon to save up my coins for spending money. The USA had never really been on my ‘go to’ destinations, I’d seen enough of it on TV and it didn’t float my boat at all. Egypt, Japan, Thailand, Cook Islands, Raratonga, these were the exotic destinations I’d travel to in my head.  Not America where everyone shoots and asks questions later. 🙂 But back in ’07 I joined Flickr, and found many contacts from various parts of USA, and saw…
