A varied day

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother’s visit to Haarlem.  It shows a clock dated 1520 still telling the correct time.

After a weekend of rest, the men were back hard at work on the end wall.  779 more words

Tempering the wind

Today’s guest picture was sent by my Newcastle correspondent.  She was surveyed by a curious lady at Wheelbirks dairy farm.  My correspondent tells me that the curiosity was well repaid by delicious ice cream. 479 more words

Day lite

Today’s guest picture is a deeply weepy  shot from Regents Park.  It was one a recent set taken there by my sister Mary.

After a couple of reasonable days, the Met Office foreboding came true today and we started with a cold, grey and windy day and ended with a slightly warmer, much greyer and very wet and windy day. 429 more words

The full score

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother’s visit to Haarlem.  It shows a very elegant brewery sign.  He remarks that there were over 100 breweries in Haarlem. 904 more words

Hardly a quiet moment

Today’s guest picture shows some colourful ducks and ducklings (or perhaps geese, I can’t tell) which my sister Mary met in Regents Park.

It was a day of meteorological contrasts with spells of sunshine mixed with fierce showers with the whole day overlaid with a very brisk and chilly wind. 572 more words

Three shades of grey

I am breaking with my usual practice of having a single guest picture by having two guest pictures today as I thought that they make an interesting contrast.  618 more words
