October’s Last Photo

This was the last photo I took with my smartphone, in my daughter’s back garden yesterday afternoon.

I admit to having tidied it up a bit, but I just can’t help myself…

Not The Way I’d Have Put It

The owners of this beauty parlour in the town of St. Junien clearly believed that their special offer on suncare products was especially worthy of note.

Public art is indeed a very broad category.

Sunset Over St. Monan’s

Looking from one Scottish fishing to another – Pittenweem towards St. Monan’s – the setting sun highlights the top of a fence, which really makes the shot.

Ducks on a lake

Sound Advice

I spotted this weatherbeaten sign down at the harbour in the small fishing village of Crail, in Scotland.

Personally, I wouldn’t need to be told once, never mind twice.

The Lizard

I discovered this tiny and very squiggly lizard when I was covering up our garden furniture for the winter. There are lizards everywhere around here but they are typically no more than three inches long and find homes in the stonework of walls and so on. They pose no threat – indeed, they feed on insects that would otherwise attack our plants, so they’re actually quite a boon.

This particular specimen, no more than an inch and a half long, was especially colourful.

Crossing The Bridge

You could, of course, drive any of the vehicles in this image, but there is no doubt that the real star is the already iconic Forth Crossing that links Edinburgh with the Kingdom of Fife.

Consider The Lilies

These orange lilies were a gift from a friend. Not only are they very orange, but there is also a little piece of light green peeping between the leaves.

Even The Clouds Are Straight

A particularly dramatic sky early one recent morning. You expect the chemtrails from overflying aeroplanes to be straight, of course, but on this occasion the clouds seemed to be as well.

Through A Window

The windows of the open-air memorial of Oradour-sur-Glane are all devoid of glass but offer many perspectives of what lies beyond.
