With a song and a smile

Today’s guest picture shows a fine clock which Dropscone saw on his recent visit to Westerham in Kent.

I usually like to go for a cycle ride on a Sunday morning while Mrs Tootlepedal goes off to sing in the church choir but there was no chance of an enjoyable pedal today with more wind and rain in plentiful supply.  506 more words

Today’s picture was sent to me by Venetia, who has visited Portishead.  She saw these lock gates.  They may look unremarkable to the ignorant but as they are in fact ‘rotating -sector’ lock gates, they are very interesting indeed. 440 more words

Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy Place 3

This is the 3rd Happy Place to feature this week and it is the fields behind my house.

In training

Today’s guest pictures come from my daughter Annie.  She looked on the internet for advice on camera settings, used her tripod and, over the space of an hour, took much better pictures of the lunar eclipse than I did.  488 more words
