Had a minor operation on Monday, so was confined to barracks for a few days. Kept taking photos, but was a bit out of time in updating. Sorry! Mostly recovered… scar healing nicely!
42/365 Phoebe meets herself! Only a quick snap as I’d been at work for 12 hours and still had more to do that evening.
43/365 A new day dawns. Rooftop sunrise over St Paul’s Cathedral.
44/365 Gantry. In Wandsworth to pick up Sarah’s Valentine’s day cupcakes.
45/365 Cupcakes. A success! The cupcakes which I got Sarah for Valentine’s day came from the wonderful Crumbs and Doilies.
And if you want to see self-same cupcakes…
46/365 For me? Finally, there were some Valentine’s roses as well. But someone thinks they were actually for her!
Bad Richard. Bad Richard. Not been blogging my Project365, er, project as I go along.
So some catching up is in order.
34/365 Input. Too snowy to go out and about today. So a different take on a familiar object.
35/365 Workhorse. My trusty laptop. For some reason, only the N key is rubbing off. No idea why – I must type more Ns than anything else!
36/365 Jump to it. Again, snow meant my bag was taken up by things like office trousers and shoes, so no room to take the camera to work. Close-up of my trusty trainers.
37/365 Rothko-esque. Well, only a pale imitation. But it’s his sort of colours. Idea suggested by my colleague Amanda remarking on the many different colours of jumper I’d warn to the office during snow week.
38/365 Pasta #2. Not that good a shot because I didn’t want it to get cold! Sarah gave me a pasta machine for my birthday. This is our second attempt – spicy mushroom spinach agnolotti with pancetta sauce.
39/365 Vivid. Gerbera held by a Wimberley Plamp photographed against coloured card blu-tacked to the conservatory window.
40/365 Wintry journey. View from the train, betwixt and between St Albans and Radlett.
41/365 Full moon. I used to be a werewolf. But I’m alright nowooooooooo. Need to try this one again with a tripod and lower ISO, methinks.
In case anyone in the UK hadn’t noticed, it snowed today. Hey, it even reached the pages of the New York Times, so it must’ve been news! I went for two photowalks through the park and round the Abbey. Firstly just after dawn when it was stopping snowing and I thought the trains might recover, secondly at lunchtime with Sarah. This shot was from the early shoot. It was a toss-up between that one and this one for today’s pick:
A small handful of others – please do click through and have a look!
At the Watercress Wildlife Association reserve in St Albans. This was the first time I’d taken my tripod and just sat quietly in the hide and waited for a shot or two!
You can see at least seven goldfinches. And there were two more round the other side where you can just see a wingtip poking out. Took about twenty minutes of waiting to get so many at once.
A couple more – click to see them larger:
