I can see Clearly now…….Maybe not!!

So another day devoid of anything close to a clear sky, I’m starting to get fed up now. All I want to do is test out my new filter properly- it’s just not happening,pft!!  Still I went out to play anyway today’s theme ‘Raindrops’ loads of them to photograph!!  Except it’s not as easy as it seems. For one thing the wind kept blowing at the crucial moment when I pressed the shutter button -blurry raindrops and just to had to the fun the best raindrops were higher up the bushes. So I spent ten minutes balancing on a garden chair- I hope to god no-one saw me!! I did contemplate getting the step ladders out but that seemed a bit OTT -this from the woman who spent yesterday crawling through the undergrowth.

The raindrops weren’t my only theme today though – come this evening we finally had a clear sky and a full moon. Guess whose been hanging out of the attic window for the last ten minutes!!!

More Photograph fun

Will there be clear skies tomorrow

Bring it on

The Foggiest Fun……………


So I was up and out by 5:45 this morning and just for a change – it was foggy. It’s bad enough being a blind runner(no contact lenses) without the fog hampering things – maybe that’s why I waved at a complete stranger that I thought was my husband – at least now I know why he didn’t wave back!! I’m quite good at mistaking my husband for other people/things. He still hasn’t forgiven me for getting him mixed up with the wheelie bin – the bin didn’t wave back either. I was quite naffed off when hubby didn’t wave back this morning and chuntered all the rest of the way home – then I opened the front door and he was still sat on the sofa- whoops. Glad I didn’t blow a kiss or the random stranger might have got the wrong idea!


It wasn’t just my eyesight that wasn’t working properly this morning. My amazing Nike+ sportswatch (it never works) was playing up too. I know I’m on a comeback from injury but I knew I wasn’t doing 11 minute miles, and I can’t blame the dodgy average pace on pressing the pause button because it had me going slow before I’d even dared to press the button- flaming thing – in the end I ran 2.4 miles in 20 minutes, not bad really.

My reason for pausing the watch was to stop and take a photograph – a strange thing to do when it’s dark but some views are worth sharing, so now I’m thinking where else I can run for more of the same. Maybe I better put my lenses in though or god knows what I’ll be photographing……..

Another run, another bike ride

Less fog tomorrow
