So that’s it – a whole year of photographs, a photo taken every single day of the last year and posted here. Mostly I’ve really enjoyed the challenge, certainly something I didn’t think I would be able to see through. Tough at times, especially those days when I realised late on that I hadn’t taken a photo all day and needed to improvise. And then other days when it was difficult to choose between several really interesting shots. I have to say I’m glad it’s done now, and I won’t be taking on the same project next year! So to finish, here’s a selfie……… Anyway, Happy New Year and best wishes for 2020.
Checkpoint Charlie was the name given by the Western Allies to the best-known Berlin Wall crossing point between East Berlin and West Berlin during the Cold War (1947–1991). All that remains is this guard post (probably not even the original one…)
At our local doctor’s today for my annual flu injection, I was taken by this glass window feature. High up in the side wall of the surgery it allows a soft light to fall on patients below. A monochrome treatment renders it as an abstract pattern.
Surprising what details you see when you look around – this is the side of our local Argos store. I’ve never really noticed the detailing as it’s high up on the wall. Not sure of the significance of the pattern – probably just a random scattering of the discs.
Well, not really – we arrived back at Heathrow Terminal 5 tonight, and these are the lights in the ceiling of the baggage claim area. They look better in mono than colour…
The leaves on the trees are turning, and the annual plants in the garden are losing their leaves. This ‘Ladies Mantle’ is one of the last to die back, and always seems to hold drops of water on its shapely leaves. Mono makes an interesting change from the usual colour image.
After another day of changeable weather, it looked like we might get a reasonable end to the day, then the clouds rolled in… The rain held off for a while, but then the inevitable downpour came.
Unusual to see banners advertising car parking. This was in Stafford, where there are quite a few car parks, but not much in the way of shops to encourage shoppers to visit.
With good weather forecast for this evening, I was looking forward to an hour or so of sunset photography in Chester while my wife was visiting friends nearby. Sadly it wasn’t to be – the rain started as I got to Chester and didn’t let up until I left. It was too wet to hang around outside, so I just managed a few shots from under cover.
This 1959 Mini has clearly seen better days, but nevertheless attracted a lot of attention at our local Festival of Transport held today.
