Day 293~366

‘Hi Frego, whatcha doing?’ “Well we’re going away tomorrow so I thought I’d sort out packing my clothes and camera gear” ‘Is it all going to fit in those little bags?’ “Yes of course when I’ve folded everything up.” ‘You do realise we’re only going for 2 days don’t you?’ “Yes, but a girl has to have options silly!” *Sigh*

Day 292~366

Not the best weather, again it’s been cold with wind chill, but a blue sky later this afternoon, which turned grey 10 minutes after we set of to go train spotting. On the way Frego noticed the sunshine sparkling through the tree branches and leaves, ‘I’ll get some of that bockey stuff’ said Frego, ‘Do you mean bokeh?’ I asked, ‘That’s what I said!’ she said.          

Day 291~366

Frego wanted to go to shoot the beach huts at Blyth this afternoon. “The sun will be in the wrong position” I said, “we need to go on a morning when the sun lights them up!”, “no worries”, she said “I’ll sort out the exposure in lightroom if they come out too dark”. “It’s blowing a gale”, I said, “you’ll be blown away”, “don’t be silly” she said. extra shot for Clare from Mermaids Purse (excellent blog) we give our jellyfish help when they’ve got stung 😀 😀  

Day 287~366

Another busy day, did housework and a trip to vet with Skye, and again the weather was cold and cloudy with heavy showers.  I decided to roast some stuffed chicken breasts to have for sandwiches and Frego was bored so took some before and after shots. For a little while the sun peeped through the clouds and light came through the neighbours fence, so she ran out to get a Fence shot for Friday. Phil came home and in spite of the rain had to transfer stuff from the old shed into the new one before demolishing the old one…

Day 286~366

I had a busy day today, went to work, made teas for the shed men, met Phil after his work to go supermarket shopping, had dinner, and here I am now with my photo for today. I didn’t have chance to take Frego out, and anyway the weather was so yuck, more rain & clouds. So this evening Frego thought she’d process some photo’s, and Skego kept her company.

Day 285~366

The weather has turned crappy here, and it’s cold and rainy and forecast to be so all week.  We were a bit fed up about it, but Frego amused herself by taking selfies with Skego, and adding filters and the like to them for her instagram account 🙂 Apparently this is my 1000th post here on WP! Yay, go me!  

Day 284~366

I was telling Frego about my ‘tree’ month back in May, and how much I’d had fun doing it, so she asked me to take her to see it so she could get a couple of shots there herself. There were big black clouds just creeping up so Frego shot the tree with them behind her to get a bit of blue sky before it got eaten up.  Then she wanted to climb the tree and do a shot of the landscape. And on the way home she spotted the graffiti wall, “what does it mean?” she asked me..  …

Day 283~366

We had plans for a grand day out today, but the cat’s been a bit poorly and didn’t want to go too far.  The weather wasn’t as nice a yesterday either,  but around 5ish it seemed we might get a nice sunset.  Frego thought we should get somewhere close to home on higher ground than where we live so we could get some cool shots, so I took her up to the Angel.  There was a low bank of thick grey clouds on the horizon, so knew the sunset wasn’t going to be great, but for a little while  the…

Day 282~366

A sunny morning here but too busy with chores to take advantage of it.  By the time I’d finished it was cloudy and spots of rain started up.  Never mind said Frego, lets go out anyway and see if we can find somewhere interesting, maybe the birds at the wildfowl trust.  But as we set off we could see in the distance a band of beautiful blue sky, and it was in the direction of the sea! Frego loves being by the sea more than anywhere else, so off we went to South Shields again, but this time to Sandhaven…
