Seeing the light

Today’s guest picture comes from a new contributor, Paul.  Like myself, he is a cyclist and obviously a keen photographer.  He is not absolutely sure but he thinks that this delightful shot was taken at Blea Tarn in the Lake District. We had another cold and sunny day today, but it was even colder thanContinue reading “Seeing the light”

Hitting the heights

Today’s guest picture is another from the files.  On his visit to Blackpool last month, Bruce was brave enough to venture onto the glass floor looking down from the top of the famous tower.  Rather him than me!  I don’t like the way that the thing seems to be held together by baler twine. WeContinue reading “Hitting the heights”

A drop of golden sun

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who felt that he could prove that East Wemyss has fine trees as well as seemingly eternal sunshine. For a change, we had some sunshine here too today, but as it came hand in hand with a very gusty and nippy east wind and a drop inContinue reading “A drop of golden sun”

Hail smiling morn

I have run out of current guest pictures so I looked in my files and I am using one from last month again.  I  was so impressed by my sister Susan’s guerrilla gardener’s work that I am showing his/her earlier effort to brighten the neighbourhood.  Everyone should be doing this. We had a brighter morning. Continue reading “Hail smiling morn”

A moving experience

Today’s guest picture is another found in last months files.  My brother Andrew sent me this autumnal shot of a bridge over the River Derwent. At the moment, each day seems to be having a competition with the day before to see which can be the most gloomy.  Today’s day won easily.  It was quiteContinue reading “A moving experience”

A ringer

Looking through my files. I found that I had overlooked this guest picture sent to me by my sister Susan last month.  It shows the good work of a guerrilla gardener who is brightening up her neighbourhood. After spending some time devoted to the essentials of life, reading the papers and doing the crossword, IContinue reading “A ringer”

Organ failure

Today’s guest picture is another from Tony on a walk in East Wemyss, the land of eternal sunshine. Our weather got warmer today but there was not a hint of sunshine here as Mrs Tootlepedal and I cycled to church to hear our potential new minister preach a sermon before the congregation voted on whetherContinue reading “Organ failure”

A tootle and a pedal…and a trip…and a cake

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who is anxious to prove that the sun continues to shine in East Wemyss.  He took this picture this afternoon. Unlike East Wemyss, it was a very grey day here today but the temperature had risen to a reasonable 6°C, so I left Mrs Tootlepedal and PatriciaContinue reading “A tootle and a pedal…and a trip…and a cake”

Walking the walk

Today’s guest picture comes from Stephen, my Australian correspondent.  He says that it is easy to see the effects of the bush fires raging in the Blue Mountains while walking the streets of Sydney, especially as the sun comes up behind the haze at dawn. We were hoping for some sun here today and weContinue reading “Walking the walk”
