Project 365 – Day 171 Colourburst

I saw this technique in a magazine and liked the look of it so I thought I would give it a go.  Quite pleased with the results.

Ace swimming by the SP today – even gave a 13 year old a run for their money in the pool! Lovely afternoon catching up with a friend and her children this afternoon, can’t believe the summer holiday is almost over ūüė¶



Project 365 – Day 169 Dragonfly

Fab trip to Ryton Pools today with a best friend and one of her SP’s. ¬†Really wish this dragonfly had been closer so I could have used my macro lens, but sadly it was not to be.

My ultimate quest to photograph a Kingfisher goes on……

On to the evening and a delicious Tapas meal out in Warwick in Catalan.  Gorgeous food, lovely setting and I can confirm that the Churros for pudding were yummy.  The chorizo in red wine was possibly the best chorizo I have ever tasted!


Project 365 – Day 168 At the Races

Annual August Bank Holiday ritual with lovely friends/neighbours.  For once the sun was shining down at the racecourse.

I even managed to have a winner, a rank outsider who almost didn’t finish it’s last race yet managed to lead from the off to win in style today – I think there was talk of some testing after the race…. who cares, I had my money!

I love the expression on the mans face in the photo.


Project 365 – Day 165 Bubbles

Bubble fun in the garden on day 165, with the SP and a couple of friends.  I tried to capture something different today, other than them actually blowing the bubbles.

I’m playing catch up with the blogs, so they will be short and sweet until I am back on track. ¬†

I do however put each daily photo on another 365 site – if you want to view them without the words….


Project 365 – Day 164 I Love Shoes

Who doesn’t?¬†

They are not actually my shoes but you get my meaning.

A quiet day today in terms of noise level in the house.  However, lots of cheering this morning at some excellent GCSE results from the North East.  So, so proud of my lovely niece.

Jobs done in town this morning, followed by an impromptu al fresco lunch with friends – the sandwich I had bought can wait until tomorrow.

Now to look forward to an evening with another friend and a few glasses of vino – not too many though as I have extra SP’S tomorrow to look after. ¬†
