A welcome surprise after a pedal

Today’s guest picture comes from our neighbour Liz, who is down in the south at the moment. She visited East Carlton Park near Corby and came across this fine specimen. It made me think of Christmas for some reason. After several windy days, we had a much calmer day here today with the promise ofContinue reading “A welcome surprise after a pedal”

Off to see the sea

Today’s guest picture is another from Mary Jo’s trip to New Zealand.  It shows South Taranaki Bight, a fierce place, Mary Jo says.  She is back in Canada and having to spend a fortnight ‘self isolating’ on her return to the country. We were promised a dry day and we got one so that wasContinue reading “Off to see the sea”

A change of plan

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s visit to the Taunton Flower show.  They really know how to enjoy a good time there. Unfortunately, Sandy’s new bike did not arrive on schedule so with nothing better to do, I set out on a solo ride, hoping that the good weather that had greeted the dayContinue reading “A change of plan”

On the rack

Today’s guest picture comes from camera club member Simon.  He suggested the theme for tonight’s meeting and then found that he couldn’t come.  He sent me this contribution  in lieu.  Prizes (token) for telling me where he was. Yet another grey and windy day welcomed us when we woke.  Everybody I met had the sameContinue reading “On the rack”

Short of both sunshine and an instant cure

Today’s guest picture is another look at the supersized crazy golf course in Nottingham.  My brother Andrew passed it on his way to classes at the university. I was hoping for a bright day today so that I could take some seaside picture when I went to visit my physio who lives on the SolwayContinue reading “Short of both sunshine and an instant cure”

Another worthwhile whim.

The guest picture of the day comes from my neighbour Liz.  She has been on holiday in Spain but must have strayed into Portugal because she tells me that these are Portuguese fishermen mending their nets. It was rather chilly and the cloud was clamped on the hills when I got up.  It was nearlyContinue reading “Another worthwhile whim.”

Long time no sea

Today’s picture is another from Mike Tinker’s recent visit to NZ.  It shows an elegantly silhouetted shag (he tells me that all cormorants are called shags in NZ). After a spate of cool, windy days, we had a calm and warm day today and with my back well rested by some well judged idleness, cyclingContinue reading “Long time no sea”

Stretcher case

Today’s guest picture, taken by my sister Mary on one of her walks, shows an artwork at the Tower of London.  It consists of ceramic poppies and when it is finished, it will surround the tower with a flood of poppies equal to the number of British and Commonwealth casualties of the First World War. Continue reading “Stretcher case”

Making an exhibition of myself (and others)

Today’s guest picture was sent to me from Edinburgh by Bruce.  He was trying to see what it felt like to be noble by standing on the bridge of the Royal Yacht Britannia. The first business of the day was to go to the Town Hall and hope that everyone who had promised to beContinue reading “Making an exhibition of myself (and others)”
