Happy New Year

I hope this finds you well and recovered from the excesses of the Christmas and New Year celebrations. We had a fairly quiet Christmas and saw the New Year in with friends. Considering that I had a poor nights sleep the night before I did a sterling job of staying awake long enough to see 2015 in.

Today we went out for a while (the first proper time since Christmas I think), the weather was pretty murky and on the way home I got this picture. IMG_3172

I am really happy with this shot. It was taken on my iPhone 5S and I have simply made it black and white and blurred the edges. What do you think?

I was going to put it on my Flickr album but I have forgotten my password and thought I could log in through Google but this is being discontinued as is Facebook login and the link took me to a page in chinese or japanese and I am not sure if this is legit or not! So for the moment I think Instagram is the place for me!

Can I get instagram on my macbook? i need to go off and check that

Anyway enough for now. Happy new year to you all and see you soon

Macro photography

The theme for tomorrow #fmsphotoaday is macro. Now this is a form of photography i really enjoy tinkering with. This photo is of a sunflower taken with my Canon Powershot on macro mode. I also really love making pictures black and white as I think they really add to the picture. I am aware that some people think that black and white detracts from the beauty of nature in all her glory, each to their own!!!
Anyway I am very pleased with this picture.

The wolf huffed and puffed ……

…….and the house of sticks fell down.

We have been for a walk today to King’s Wood nr Ashford in Kent. It was fairly bracing but very nice to see the sun and blow way the winter cobwebs.

Savannah had this idea to build a shelter from the wood she found. However, this was soon found to be fairly impractical so a small bridge over a large muddy puddle sufficed but such imagination bless her.

I hope you all had a lovely Easter and I hope that the sun continues and we soon get some warmth.

Richborough Power Station

We have been out for a walk today to blow away all the Christmas cobwebs and took the camera with us. On the way home I managed to grab a few good shots of the cooling towers at Richborough Power Station. There is a possibility that these will be demolished before the end of this year. I quite like them they are an iconic image and to me they mean that my journey has begun when leaving Thanet and that I am nearly home when coming back into Thanet.
For most people they represent Marmite…..you either like them or you don’t and I think the don’t party will win and they will be erased from our horizon soon.
