This week on Sunday Stills the topic is ‘Fresh’. I thought I’d share a fresh new morning sunrise which could be seen outside my window last week:
This week’s topic is ‘Frozen’. I thought I’d add a couple of photos; one shows a snow angel my granddaughter made, and the other shows the road outside my house on a frozen January morning. Keep warm, folks!
I thought I’d publish two views I have from the window of our holiday home (the ‘van’) on the Isle of Wight, and two views from outside our main home in Suffolk:
This first photo shows the view we have of the English Channel when I look out of the van’s back kitchen window.
And this is the view out the front kitchen window of a red squirrel running up our sun parasol on the van’s decking. No grey squirrels inhabit the Isle of Wight. They are on the mainland, and only red squirrels are seen on the Island.
And here’s the view I have of part of our front garden in Suffolk when I sit and type:
Here’s most of it from one of the upstairs bedrooms. The garden doesn’t look its best in January, but it’s a great deal improved from the burnt grass we had in last summer’s heatwave. In the centre is the lid of our underground gas tank for the central heating, as there’s no mains gas in the arse end of nowhere…
I searched through my old photos to find a suitable one for the Sunday Stills ‘Vintage‘ topic today. I came up with this one of me and my mother Dot, taken about 1963. We were staying at one of those awful 1950s holiday sites that resemble prisoner-of-war camps. I always had to have the bow in the hair to match the dress, much to my disgust…
For the last Sunday Stills of 2018 the topic is ‘Red‘. I thought I’d share a photo that Sam took of me a few years’ ago. We were out for a walk along the main street in our village, and I think the red railings of the builder’s yard contrast rather nicely with the snow. What do you think?
Here below is my picture for this week’s Sunday Stills Photo Challenge. The topic is ‘Bucket List‘. You can add yours too by checking out the following link:
The photo was taken in February 2017 in Costa Maya. I’d always wanted to swim with dolphins, and I got this chance when on a cruise to New Orleans for the Mardi Gras. The dolphin is whispering sweet nothings in my ear, but I can’t understand what he’s saying…
I thought about which of my photos might be suitable for the theme of Time. I decided to come up with two instead of one, which shows the same footpath in my village 6 months after the snow of 2016 had melted.
What a difference 6 months make!
Time has carried on regardless, and so for the hell of it here’s the autumnal version below, taken yesterday. We seem to have lost one of the posts, but hey ho, never mind…
Thanks to Terri Webster Schrandt at Second Wind Leisure for this weekly photography challenge and blog promotion. This week the theme is ‘Pink’, so I thought these pink tinges in the clouds above Ryde Pier fitted the bill rather well:
I took this photo in September 2017 during one of my many visits to the Isle of Wight.
