Day 335~366

This is the last day of Crystal Ball month.  I worked today so thought I’d end up doing a fetchingly creative night shot, but the universe gifted me an amazing sunset.  Didn’t have time to get to high ground, so made the best of it in the upstairs bedrooms and my garden. This is a shot from my front bedroom window, with my largest crystal I haven’t faffed on with these shots, I could have lightened the shadows but really it wouldn’t add anything to the shot, it’s all about those colours in the sky. The back bedroom windows don’t…

Day 316~366

Today is armistice day, and a day to remember my grandad who served in the RE’s in WW1. He signed up with his best friend, who got killed nearly at the end of that war. I’ve written about this before so won’t dwell, but wanted to make a picture that isn’t sad but is in memory of him.

Todays…

Day 308~366

Firstly, I’m going back to the old theme, the photo’s come out too small in the other one! Today was a rainy day so didn’t venture out too far, got my teeth polished at the dentist 😁 and went to blow up my car tyres, 9psi isn’t all that good to drive about on! Skye has been very clingy today, and Phil said this morning she was curled up on top of the microwave and wouldn’t eat her breakfast, he was thinking it might be the endgame. She perked up later on but all day she has been shadowing me and wanting…
