though having a mobile phone is a bit incongruous 🙂

A quieter day at the tree this evening, just a couple of dog walkers and a runner going by. So I had a little climb of the tree, to look along the lower branch.

Day 121~366

Faffing about today.  This is a shot of sequins on a table, through a water droplet on a glass sheet suspended 6″ above the sequins.  Took ages to focus on the water drop. Happy shiny Saturday wordy peeps.

Day 118~366

I’ve been struggling with this shot for 1 & 1/2 hours, still can’t get it right. Will be going back to it to get it how it looks in my head at some point, but it’s late (again!) now, so time to stop.

Day 117~366

So I got through my long 12 hour day, got home, had dinner, did work updates/emails and then it’s 9.30pm and the last thing I feel like doing is my photo. But you have to push through and get one done at times like this, so I shot some coloured craft beads you string to make bracelets, (it’s a kid thing). Anyway close up they look a bit manky, and if I hd the time I’d scrub them up and start again, but my body is telling me STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND VEG RIGHT NOW!!

Day 116~366

Sun turns blue and gold

but winter air still lingers,

strange times we live in.

A Wardley Haiku 😀

Today it has snowed, and hailed, and been sunny, and very very windy and cold.  In my conservatory the sun illuminated my glass art work, while it hailed outside on the front garden. Strange times.
