Day 306~366

So on we go into November, and this month I am getting out my crystal balls and will be using them in my photography.  But first, I had a little fun last night with the trick or treaters who came to the house, and swapped a photograph for a treat. I do this every year and the kids are great round here, smiley and nice and polite. I don’t know any of them and most are with parents. So far no-one has given me grief for taking their kids pics,  but then most of the kids are in disguise! Also…

Day 305~366

‘Hells Bells Frego! What on earth’s going on?’ “I’m off out trick or treating with Mego, Clego and Bego. And I think Skego is coming too. Do you like my costume? ‘Umm well, yes I guess. You do know this is our last day together don’t you?’ “Of course I do, why?” ‘Well I just thought we’d spend our last evening together, you know, just me and you and Skego, have a couple of drinks, watch a spooky movie and have Pizza or something’ “Oh no, I’d much rather be out having fun with my pals, might see you when…

Day 304~366

“Whatcha doing Fraggle?” ‘I’m making soul cakes for my photo for the Sunday Challenge group, it’s Halloween tomorrow and that’s the theme.’ “What happens to them after the photo?” ‘I’ll give them to the trick or treaters tomorrow night’ “Can I have one?” ‘If you’re nice to me’ “Forget it!” *sigh* and my shot for the challenge

The Sunday Fraggle report~ bits and bobs

Here we are at the end of October and beginning of November and only 54 days til Christmas :). So as well as my days out and travels, of course there have been incidental bits and bobs to catch along the way. At the beginning of the month I travelled to the Scottish Border land to see a client in a little seaside village called Eyemouth, and took a few shots with my Eyephone 🙂 It was a lovely blue sky day, with lots of shadows and contrasts.   We had a couple more blue sky days before it all…

Happy Halloween!!

Weekend Doon Sooth

Have been down south, first visiting my pal Helen in Biggleswade. I love Helens home, it is full of dogs & chickens and quirky items so I took some photos indoors and in the garden. Helen is a fab cook and made us pulled chicken which was gorgeous and has inspired me to buy a slow cooker! Also it was Halloween so a pumpkin was carved. As the evening came Helen and I went out with our cameras to catch some autumnal colour and the sunset. I took some shots from the car window as we travelled. We parked up…

a little catching up to do

Haven’t been taking many photo’s of late, have been thwarted by the flu, the weather, life in general.  I did manage to sit and have lunch by the sea one afternoon, and took a series of people walking past the gap in the dunes, which amused me as I was sitting in the car at the time, had a Warhol moment 🙂   On one of my client visits I went by Ludworth Tower, I have shot this before but had another go as it may just fall down one day though it was built in 1422, so nearly 600…

Halloween

Every Halloween I get a pumpkin hung up outside the door, a bag of sweeties inside by the door, and don my witches hat to answer it when the kids come round trick or treating. My ‘price’ for the sweets is they have to have their photo’s taken, and I love seeing all the costumes nd smiley faces. I was a bit late home from work this year to get many, but here are the ones I got, plus my pumpkin 🙂
