Day 249~366

Yay now Autumn has arrived we’re having summer! 🙄 with nice warm days predicted by the BBC weather lady. I beg to differ 🙂 Aneroid barometers have a sealed, air-tight metal box inside. As air pressure rises or falls, the box either squashes inward a tiny bit or flexes outward. A spring is cunningly attached to the box and, as the box moves in and out in response to the changes in air pressure, the spring expands or contracts and moves the pointer on the dial. The dial is calibrated (marked with numbers) so you can read the air pressure instantly….

Day 184~366

Blinking weather! Most of the day has been rainy, so I did washing of course, some pinks to brighten things up. and Skye has been fed up not going out, so read up on products available for the home, she loved the two-tone toaster 🙂 and in an all too brief patch of sunshine I managed my shot of a shadow.    

Day 181~366

My bloggypal Beetleypete 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.  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…

Day 146~366

I did these in B&W, because today has been grey, and windy and rainy, and it was  horrible going out to shoot the tree. Took my umbrella to protect my camera and lenses whilst I was changing them. Didn’t take the tripod as carrying camera bag, umbrella and that would have been too much, especially as the wind was trying to steal my brolly, so had to use a high ISO. I think you can make out the silvery water streams running down the bark. and finally I chose this next one as my shot of the day because I can…

Day 17~366 & a Sunday Fraggle report

It’s been a little while since I wrote a Fraggle report, not since Christmas I think, but apart from my ongoing 366 project I’m still taking shots of the cat and the sunsets :). Work has been busy with lots of places to drive to and lots of clients to see, but no chance to stop and take photo’s, and I don’t like getting out of the car in the rain and the wind! Had a bit of a respite from the weather, and its been cold but no rain for a few days, it’ll be back towards the end…

The Sunday Fraggle report (on Monday)

Well last week was a busy one at work, I did an extra day, and was home late most days, but that’s how it goes sometimes. The weather has been weird, for a whole week most of the country was covered in fog. On Wednesday I had to drive up a steep hill in Northumberland, and at the top came out of the fog to find a beautiful sunny day, and in the first picture you can see Chesters Roman Fort in the distance. But as I crested the hill, the fog took me back into it’s folds. Last Sunday…

80/365

  so me and Ben are sitting having lunch in Morrisons car park, Darlington, as you do, and there’s a snow storm around us, (that’s a bit of an exzag), a heavy snow flurry really, and there’s these twiggy trees and bushes and a gollumping red breasted bird of some description chivvying about in the middle of them. Got out of the car to get closer and take a shot, but he retreated when he heard the car’s “you’ve opened the bloody door!’ alarm. It wasn’t the best idea anyway because of the snow and the cold. Got back in…
