Sunday 23rd September

I’ve been busy what with sorting out posts for the Universe blog, and doing the latest mosaic, which by the way is nearly finished, one last clean up to do and then it goes back in the lounge. But I’ve still been doing other bits of photography. Β I love my macro lens, the fuji 80mm and have been doing some shots with it.

A little series with a candle

wax baby


arrested development

and another series with some mushrooms


I have a prism that makes a rainbow without rain

and a trilby

the rim of the brim

I’m quite fond of my telephoto lens too though it’s a cheapo 50-230mm. It does what I need though and today I trained it onto the visitors who live under my shed.

Meet Mork & Mindy

So far they have confounded the local cats that pass through the garden, though one in particular knows they are there.

Lastly I have a new weather device, called a storm glass, it has a chemical fluid inside it and crystals which grow and then un-grow depending on the temperature.

warm today

Of course it’s no substitute for looking out the window to see what the weather’s doing, but it’s pretty and cool and that’s enough for me. πŸ™‚

Have a great week wordypeeps!

  1. These are truly amazing, especially the ones with the candles. For some reason the last picture with the caption warm today doesn’t show up for me (but that could of course be totally a problem on my end. Anyways: terrific post as always 😊

  5. A storm glass! Sounds magical and maybe a little worrisome.

    1. Haha definitely magical – Captain Nemo had one.


  6. “the rim of the brim” looks like a structure from the film Alien. The visitors look cute! fortunately they are not scary as the ones in the cities :S
