Photo a Day – Week Forty Nine

This little watering can features often in my photos and I love it. I’m not bothered about repeating types of pictures. It’s good to see a similar image that reflects the changes in the garden, light and weather.

A new adventure began when I found myself another job! Yay and boo all at once! One day a week I work in a village and in my quest for the 10K steps I set off to explore at lunchtime. Very old church and pretty stone buildings greeted me on that wander.

Trying the macro lens again and not getting it quite in focus but I loved light and shadows in this one and the texture of the plant added a lovely quality too.

Burts Bees has been my lip balm of choice for several years. I thought the peppermint was unavailable but my sister found some. It gives your lips a gentle tingle and smells so lovely.

Got a lift to the other place I work and caught this sunrise.

Very cold morning, hence my hood up as well as a hat. I was going to straighten this photo up in photo shop but resisted. Sometimes unedited is the way to go.

And here is another less than perfect photo. I wanted it here in the mix of my 365 photos because it captures one of those moments. We had the Olympic curling on the T.V and Buddy was chewing a toy. A lovely Sunday all round.

And there we go.

  • Perfect – life captured as it is. the angled photo of you walking with Buddy is perfect. Congratulations on landing a job you like. Seems like a really pretty little village. I’ve been trying to watch the ice skating – saw Pairs short program last night. Men’s curling is later today I think, Canadian vs Great Britain. Good luck to both teams.

  • Love all your week in the life, I’ve never tried it (usual excuse of a boring, in terms of documenting, life)
    For your opening photo and the one with Buddy here do you put your camera on the ground?

    • Thanks Melanie. You should try it! Really. I feel the same way about our life being boring and repetitive but honestly you will find that things are not the same year on year. And it is such a treat to pick up albums from past years and look at all those details. In answer to your question yes I put the camera on the ground. Both shots were taken with the iphone and I set the self timer and run back into the frame! I have zoomed in a little in photoshop which gives the impression that the camera is raised up but in the original photo you can tell it was sat on the ground. Hope that answers your question.
