A Photo A Day … November 09 2013

I looked out my balcony doors today, and one of the gulls was back. They haven’t been around for a while, so I was quite happy to see it. I started taking photos of it on the balcony railing, and then the cat caught sight and ran for it. The door was shut, but it was enough to scare the bird off. I went and put my shoes on and the hood of my camera lens, then went outside in the rain. I threw the poor thing some bread, but as you can see, it was raining quite hard and you can see the raindrops on the back feathers.

A Photo A Day … October 29 2013

I went out to see my sister today, and I also wanted to look at any damage done by yesterday’s storm. Surprisingly there wasn’t actually that much damage. A couple of trees down, slates from roofs. Lampposts. Trees had completely shed their leaves. A car park turned into a dodgem park. The birds don’t seem to be any worse for wear though.
