Day 365~366

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   The Sage and my shot of the day.. ta da!  

Day 363 & 364

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…

Day 362~366

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.  

Day 361~366

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.

Day 358~366

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…

Day 355~366

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 🙂

Day 353~366

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…
