Day 366~366!

Yipee I made it to the end, didn’t miss a single day and am chuffed to pieces with my project.  I learned a lot along the way, about composition, slowing down, being disciplined and lots of technical bits I hadn’t bothered with before. Next year will be a different beastie, it will be a 365 as it’s not a leap year and will be tied in with my starting the ‘walk 1000 miles in 2017’ project. I’ll be using my phone and film cameras for it and it will be posted on my Fraggles Other Place blog, leaving this one…

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 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…

Day 349~366

Lava Lamps, invented by a British accountant Edward Craven Walker in 1968 who t hen set up a company ‘Mathmos’ to sell and distribute them. Still going today in the original factory in Poole, Dorset. Interesting factoid:- In 2004, a man from Kent,Washington,USA was killed by a lava lamp on a kitchen stove while closely observing it from only a few feet away. Heat from the stove built up pressure in the lamp until it exploded and a shard pierced his heart, causing fatal injuries.  Probably won the Darwin Award that year 🙂   Oldies but still going strong!
