Farewell to our visitors

Today’s guest picture is another of my brother Andrew’s shots from his trip along the Thames yesterday. He has a lot of things to do just now, and he says that his head is spinning a lot faster than the London Eye was going round. Annie cooked some cheese and marmite pinwheels yesterday, and theyContinue reading “Farewell to our visitors”

Second sight

I have stolen today’s guest picture from some which Big Deev sent me to show at the Camera Club meeting on the theme of winter. The day started well in three ways: firstly, it wasn’t raining, secondly the replacement lens for the Archive Group microfiche reader arrived in the post, and thirdly, when Nancy andContinue reading “Second sight”

A ray of sunshine

Today’s guest picture is another from my Somerset correspondent Venetia’s trip to Norway. She sent me this ‘postcard’ from the most northerly town in mainland Europe. We had a better day here than yesterday as far as the weather went. Dropscone was complaining about the cold wind when he cycled round for scones and coffeeContinue reading “A ray of sunshine”

Cutting it fine

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony in East Wemyss. It shows once again that he is living in the sunshine capital of Scotland. But he still needed a fire on in the evening. It was a great deal of warmer in the house when we came down for breakfast today, and itContinue reading “Cutting it fine”

A special day

Today’s guest picture comes from my camera club friend Simon. He is on holiday in the Highlands and sent me this bridge to add to my collection. It is the Jubilee Bridge crossing the marsh on the way to to Port Appin in Argyllshire. It was raining overnight here and it was raining when weContinue reading “A special day”

A late walk

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He managed to take a very atmospheric picture as he crossed the River Derwent late on a misty afternoon recently. We had a marked change in the weather here today as we went back to a prolonged spell of rain. Luckily, not only did Margaret join usContinue reading “A late walk”

A satisfying day

Today’s guest picture comes from my walking friend Mark. He took this delightful ‘light and shade’ shot across the valley from Warbla yesterday while he was having a late afternoon stroll with his wife, Leila. We had another very pleasant day here today as far as the weather went, and the events of the dayContinue reading “A satisfying day”

A choir contrast

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He has been absent from the guest picture slot for a while, and regular readers may be wondering if the sun has stopped shining in East Wemyss. It has not. This was dawn over the Firth of Forth yesterday. We had a lovely sunny day here today.Continue reading “A choir contrast”

Going off with a bang

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary again. After visiting the pond in Regents Park, she found that she and her friends were the only ones brave enough to play tennis on a rather damp and gloomy day. They enjoyed both the peace and quiet and the game itself. We had a mixed dayContinue reading “Going off with a bang”

Season of mists (and rain)

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She likes to visit the pond in Regents Park on her way to tennis. It is noticeable that the gardeners allow/encourage more “wildness” round the pond edges these days. There was not much to be said for the greater part of the daylight hours today as itContinue reading “Season of mists (and rain)”
