Tonight Phil came with me to photograph the bridges over the Tyne. I’ve seen loads from other people, and it probably doesn’t look any different to those, but this is mine and I’m chuffed it turned out so well.
I took a few others so here are they,
The millennium bridge and The Baltic
The millennium bridge and The Sage
and my shot of the day.. ta da!
Another busy day yesterday as we had our 2 grandkids staying over, I got my shot but by the time we’d got the last one in bed and had something to eat it was too late to faff on the net.
Also we’ve had 2 sunny if cold days, so the first shot is of the sunlight coming in to my bathroom just before it goes down behind the houses.
At this time of year the sun is very low in the sky all day, so doesn’t get above the houses at the back of where we live, but for 15 minutes or so it shines through the gap between 2 houses and streams through our back fence.
Only 2 days to go!
It’s been a busy day here today as we had family over for a festive tea, so Phil was doing tidying and I was doing cooking. No time for photo’s of my magnificent spread before it got eaten 😀 and as it’s late~ish now have just taken a shot of the globe lamp in our conservatory.
The weather tonight is even worse than when we had Storm Barbara. This I presume is Storm Connor, which wasn’t supposed to affect us much but it is, so I am staying in the warm. Running out of lights to shoot indoors, so made a tea~light fest of most of my candle holders.
Into t he home stretch now, 6 days left. I saved my Christmas Tree lights for today’s post, hope everyone is having a fab day.
To all my Wordypeep followers, especially those who are following my 366, thanks for your encouragement and comments 🙂
Storm Barbara started on us about 12 midday and we thought it was a bit of a poor show to start with. Phil and I went out dropping cards off to relatives and having cups of coffee with all, and by the time we drove home we were in the thick of it, Barbara was definitely mean and feisty. So we are home now and warm and toasty while the wind gusts about and sporadic episodes of lashing rain come and go. Definitely not a night to venture forth with a camera, well at least not if you are a wimp like me, so made do with the water feature in my conservatory.
When Phil is on a late shift and I am on an early, or when he’s on an early shift and I am off so want to stay up reading, or if I get insomnia and don’t want to disturb him, I trot off to sleep in the spare room. When I snuggle down, and turn off the lights, this is what I can see 🙂
better embiggened 🙂
For the past 3 years we’ve had a pair of Robins visit our garden and The Happy Eater tree, but this year have hardly seen them. Today though Phil spotted this little robin jumping from the car window ledge onto the mirror back and forth, we think he thought there was another robin in it! He seems to be alone so am not sure if this is one of the pair and the spouse has died or if this one is a different one all together.
this next one’s a bit out of focus but you can see his reflections in the mirror and window,
and my shot for today~
