Day 181~366

My bloggypal Beetleypeteย and I are constantly banging on about our inclement weather, and today was another deluge, it rained non stop til about 4pm here. Oh well at least good for finding plenty of reflections and off I went with my camera. Got home and processed and chose the ones I liked, if, indeed, one can like a puddle. ย Carried on then clearing out my home office, Phil came home, we h ad dinner, and then I came up to post the pictures. But I realised sitting here with the window open I could (and still can) hear boys out playing footy, the ground is dry,the sky is blue and the sun is out, as if the day had not happened at all. SO I ran outside with my camera and took some sunny reflections, which I like much better ๐Ÿ™‚ย ๐ŸŒž

But first, the rain

took this near our corner shop

Day 55~366

From Sunderland yesterday to North Shields & Whitley Bay today. Another clear sunny sky, and first to North Shields where I had to drive past the south Air Vent for the Tyne Tunnel, I thought it looked quite cool in B&W


at lunch time I parked by St Mary’s lighthouse and took a shot of the beach, got a ginormous sun flare,


and I parked next to a building site later on and spotted this chap


I like the air vent best so that’s my daily!

Day 49~366

Should have posted this last night but had a very busy day off getting hair done and manicure, then monthly shopping in Asda. ย The sun was out though it was cold, so I took some early morning shots in my garden to make sure I had something for the day. It’s sunny and cold again today, but have no appointments so am going for a walk in a little while, to see what I can find for day 50.

I think my friend Francis would make something of the shadow on this, but I am no good at pareidolia. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks Francis ๐Ÿ˜€
