Day 188 – What To Choose…?

I’ve been a member of the Royal Photographic Society for some years now, and finally decided I would like to sit their Licentiate assessment – success confirms a reasonable competence in photographic skills. Assessment entails submitting a panel of 10 images to the committee for review, so the first step is to choose some potential photos – they need to be technically perfect, and show a variety of subjects and techniques. So I’m drawing up a short list of photos to consider…

Day 187 – Standing Like Soldiers…

Even though we cut them right down each autumn, these beautiful Verbena plants pop up just the same the following year. One of many strains, these ones are apparently named Verbena Bonariensis and grow to about 1m tall. They do seem to attract butterflies too…

Day 186 – In Court Again…

Well, it was #1 Court at Wimbledon! We were lucky enough to win the opportunity to buy tickets for the Championship this year, and had a fabulous day at the true home of tennis. Even the weather was kind to us…!

Day 185 – Back To Reality (2)…

As well as getting shopping (see yesterday’s post) the other priority when getting back from holiday is mowing the lawns. Fortunately the ride-on makes fairly short work of it – just a shame it can’t do weeding too…

Day 184 – Back To Reality…

After our great two week holiday in Ireland, it was back to normal today – unpacking the car, putting stuff away, and the inevitable shopping. Not my favourite supermarket, but at least it’s nearby and will do is for a few days…

Day 183 – Slán (So Long)…

It was time today to say farewell (slán) to Ireland, and drive home. This was our last proper look at the Causeway Coast as we headed off early to catch the ferry across the Irish Sea. We’ve had a brilliant couple of weeks in Ireland, and will be back for sure! Next adventure will be Ibiza in about 3 weeks – that’s going to be a different experience..

Day 182 – The Dark Hedges…

Planted around 200 years ago, this row of beech trees near Balleymoney in Northern Ireland has become famous as a location for the Game Of Thrones TV series. It’s busy from dawn to dusk so it proved difficult to get a photo without people in it…
