A walk in the suburbs, not too far from a town centre, was an uneventful thing, something I’d done many times where I used to live.Read More »

I thought this would sit nicely with the daily prompt of ‘nest‘ 🙂 !  What do you think?  While I’m not sure the seagull is actually nesting here, birds are notorious for finding many places to nest including man made structures like this.

A short photography post today as I’m still feeling a bit sick after several days of migraine 😦  Hopefully I’ll be all good tomorrow.  It’s 30 years since the great storm of 1987 hit the south east of Britain (anyone old enough to remember that?) and another storm seems set to mark its anniversary.  I’m sending my thoughts to everyone who will be affected most, I hope it won’t be as harsh as ’87 ❤

In the meantime to cheer everyone up, what do you think of this big red boat?

This week’s photo challenge is scale.  This isn’t a new picture but one I found of a trip to Rochester.  I found myself weirdly taken by nautical things and kept finding boats to photograph in the area.  I thought this boat taken from the front looks a lot larger and more imposing than it does from the side.  To give you another sense of scale check out the white specs on the right next to those posts.  That’s two small swans!

Hope you enjoyed this picture.  Please let me know any thoughts 🙂

#Colouring: The Aviary Peacock #MPBooks

This is a coloured in peacock from the colouring book called ‘The Aviary’.  It’s filled with realistic images of birds and is published by LOM Art an imprint of Michael O’Mara books.  I did this piece of colouring and took a picture a while ago now but recently looked back and was impressed with my own colouring skills (is that weird?).

What do you think of the peacock?  Would Phoenix the Peacock approve do you think? 🙂
(p.s. apologies for the general light tint on the picture, fault of the light in the room, and the slight shadow in the middle bottom of the pic)


Do you like my colouring in?  What about the original peacock image?  Please let me know what you think, I’d love to hear from you.  You can also find me in these places:

Pedestrian Pigeons

This is the first photo challenge I’ve ever done on wordpress so I hope everyone likes it.  The theme for this week’s challenge is pedestrian and I have my own little take on the pedestrian world – pigeons!  Love them or hate them (I personally love them) they are part of our towns and cities and help clean up the crumbs of food dropped on the street.  They’re also intelligent birds…well some of the time 😛 🙂

I actually love watching pigeons, I even visited Trafangar Square in London when I was younger.  Back them it was famous for the birds and stalls sold seed you could feed to them, I had several eating from my hands!!  They are smart and resilient birds which should be given some respect.  Pigeon chicks look very strange, by the way, different from most chicks which look a little cuter, and I think we’d all like them a little bit more if we saw more positive nature programs about them.  🙂

Happy Monday everyone.  I hope this image has brightened up your morning, and I hope you have a great week!


What to you think of my picture?  Does it speak ‘pedestrian’ to you?  What would you put for this week’s photo challenge?  Please let me know your thoughts I’d love to hear from you 🙂 You can also follow me in these places:
