Pollen and other hazards #Sunday ramble

MANOR HOUSE (10)

Welcome to another Sunday ramble when I take you on a wander around the less trodden pathways of my mind. It’s the pathways up my nose that are concerning me today as my sinuses get blocked with spring pollen. (more…)


The Review: Changing times

Black Country churches in Wednesbury

These are the churches in Wednesbury

 

Christmas is a religious festival, despite the commercialisation. Where I live the roads are horrendous as people frantically try to get their shopping and make Christmas a special time. There is Christmas music everywhere, trying to get people in the mood; but it won’t be a Merry Christmas for the homeless. (more…)


The review: Local community and events

1 hospital

I’ve had a strange week. I did finally manage to get to the hospital for my blood test. I was in and out in 10 minutes, which left 20 minutes on my 30 minutes parking. At a pound for 30 minutes, it seemed a shame to waste it. The car park was quite full though and so I decided not to join the Costa Coffee crowd, although the Taste Cafe was a little tempting.

Sunday thoughts

Spring flowers along the River Tame

I wonder sometimes about politicians, they never seem to have an original idea. Labour is now formulating policies with 99  weeks to go to the general election. They seem to be planning to do the same as the Conservative-Lib Dem coalition. More cuts and more clueless action…

Easter Sunday sunshine

Page One

It’s Easter Sunday, the sun’s shining and I’m thinking about photography. I haven’t had a good Sunday afternoon taking pictures for some time. If you’re wondering about today’s picture, those are places around where I live. (more…)

The weeks review

a landscape, Merrion's Wood

I’ve started this post with a photo that I think is a little artistic. It was taken in Merrion’s Wood. I don’t think I would choose Merrion’s Wood for a picnic, it is a great place to take photographs and explore though. I would prefer Sandwell Valley for a picnic on a sunny day. Do you remember those sunny days we used to get in England? We do get breaks in the rain sometimes and that is a good time for a barbecue, garden party or a picnic. That was the subject of my blog yesterday.

Sunday ramble | August

LAKE AND KINGS HILL 036

Memories

One good thing about taking photographs  is if you’re having an off day, you can look at the photographs and remember when you were having a good day! I took this picture down by a lake and I might just go back there today, it’s relaxing walking around taking photographs and looking for good shots. I like to get the flowers or trees or something in the foreground to give the photograph some depth. These flowers are a little too small for that and I am curious to know what they are. (more…)
