Is it raining?
It’s Sunday morning and so once again I let you into the weird labyrinth where I keep my innermost thoughts. What’s on my mind this week? On a Sunday, I like to write this ramble in the morning and then after lunch, I like to do some landscape photography while I can drive about without facing mind destroying congestion. Of course, on Friday’s when the congestion is the worst we get the sunshine and on Sundays it’s always raining.
I was out last night taking photos at Churchill’s club where my brother was celebrating his 60th birthday. I have looked through the photos this morning and they are quite good. I deleted far fewer than usual and so I must be getting better at this event photography.
This is a weekend of celebrating the Queen’s 90th birthday. I photographed this event yesterday which went well until the heavens opened. I’m getting to be quite a good sky watcher and weather predictor and was in my car driving home when the rain came down. That was my backup plan. (more…)
The latest news concerns interest rates and a small rise is expected to be announced by the Federal reserve on the other side of the pond. I don’t think that will affect us very much in the UK but could indicate a UK rise next year. The other phenomenon in the news is something called Christmas. (more…)
It’s Sunday morning and so I let you into the dustier pathways of my mind and let you know what I’m thinking about today. I’ve been thinking about art and audience engagement. Some artists create for themselves, true artists create for other people and engage with the audience. (more…)
Today’s picture is of Forge Mill lake in Sandwell Valley, West Bromwich. The temperature at the moment where I am in Central England is 20C, but set to rise higher later. It went as high as 40C in places yesterday. (more…)
Today’s photo was taken in Redhouse Park, West Bromwich, a few weeks ago. On a nice day, you could do worse than go there for a picnic. There are lots of places here in the Black Country. There’s parks, nature reserves and canals everywhere. You could even do a bit of fishing!
Sunshine in England at last! It has been a interesting week with mixed news, good and bad and the weather has been the same, here in England. At least some of the economic news has been a little better. I wrote a few interesting blogs and only missed one day. Yes, there was no blog on Wednesday!
