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”

Changeable

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who kindly forwarded this picture taken by his partner Marianne from her place of work this morning. Some workplaces have better views than others. I had to be up and about quite sharply today. The new lens for the Archive Group microfiche reader had arrived and IContinue reading “Changeable”

Not a fan

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He found the River Derwent in reflective mood the other day and kindly thought of my liking for bridge pictures. My sisters in London woke up to a heavy fall of snow today. Here we had another cold, frosty and dry day. It was foggy in theContinue reading “Not a fan”

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”

Club comes up trumps

Today’s guest picture is another from Dropscone’s Orkney adventure. He says that they are having to cope with gales. He doesn’t say if they went swimming. After some overnight rain, we had a generally very sunny day here, although a spot or two of rain in the afternoon made hanging out the washing a bitContinue reading “Club comes up trumps”

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 bit of a whirl

Today’s guest picture is another Bermuda view from Joyce.  She tells me that this is the causeway to St George at dawn. The forecast for today was  not promising but after a very heavy shower overnight with added hail, it was quite a decent day when we got up, and there were none of theContinue reading “A bit of a whirl”

Small but select

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia who took it while  flashing past Stonehenge on a double decker bus.  There was no time to stop as she was off to London for a march to demand a second referendum.  One of my sisters, my brother and his two sons also attended the marchContinue reading “Small but select”

Small but select

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia.  She is visiting the Netherlands for singing purposes, and saw this fine selection of bridges crossing the river Waal at Nijmegen through the tinted windows of her coach.  The Waal is a distributary* of the Rhine. We had a fine day here today.  Indeed, we areContinue reading “Small but select”
