Clubbed

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He saw what looks like the narrowest tall building in the world on a visit to London.  He revealed that the secret of its narrowness is that it is triangular.  He found a good angle to take his picture. It was dry but still very windy hereContinue reading “Clubbed”

A necessary pause

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone’s recent visit to Amsterdam.  It shows the station clock.  Unusually for a clock, it doesn’t show the time on this face.  By a curious mechanism it is able to show the direction of the wind which the weather vane on the tower is recording.  (There is also a flyingContinue reading “A necessary pause”

A heartening murmur

Today’s guest picture comes from a member of the Archive Group.  Joyce enjoys visiting Bermuda where her husband was born, and who can blame her when the views are like this?  That is a spider lily in the foreground. After an active day yesterday, I was happy to while away another grey morning with breakfast,Continue reading “A heartening murmur”

Another outing for the new coat

Today’s guest picture comes from Gunta and shows that although her siskins on the west coast of the USA are not quite the same as ours, they do behave in a similar manner. We had a very windy day here today and there was frequent rain too, so Sandy did well to find a dryContinue reading “Another outing for the new coat”

Near the bottom

Today’s guest picture comes from Gunta, a correspondent and fellow blogger who lives in SW Oregon.  Knowing that I like bridges, she has sent me this fine example, one of the most notable bridges in the Pacific Northwest.  It crosses the Rogue River near its mouth. We are only a day or two away fromContinue reading “Near the bottom”

Quite busy

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  She visited Margate, home of the Turner Contemporary art gallery and was please to be able to capture a Turneresque shot of the seaside while she was there. I had a day of general activity, none of it very vigorous.   The morning started with the crossword andContinue reading “Quite busy”

New month, new weather

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He encountered a much needed moment of reflection in these turbulent times while on a visit to Keddlestone Hall. After our spell of frosty mornings and dry cool days, the temperature rose to greet the first day of November but unfortunately brought a lot of drizzle andContinue reading “New month, new weather”

A fond farewell

Today’s guest picture comes from my archives.  It was a grey and damp day here so I thought that this black and white picture of Skye with a lot of water in it, taken earlier in the year by our son Tony, was just the thing to match the day. As well as being dampContinue reading “A fond farewell”

Clouded vision

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia.  She visited the Haynes International Motor Museum with my sister Mary and saw many wonderful motor cars, including this 1900 Clement Voiturette. When you look back at them, there are some days which seem to rather slip through your grasp and you never really get aContinue reading “Clouded vision”

A shocking experience

Today’s unusual guest picture comes from my Australian correspondent Stephen.  He is currently in Melbourne. Last night he attended an opera performance in the Melbourne Arts Centre – the blue-lit building on the left of his picture. He took the shot while walking back to his hotel after the performance. The shot takes in the YarraContinue reading “A shocking experience”
