Swatters

A close-up look at a small sample of our collection of colourful fly swatters. Hopefully, the fly gets an even closer view – although they usually get away.

(waist)coat of many colours

….although you might call it a vest.

This is part of the front of a waistcoat that I picked up in Spitalfields market in London more years ago than I care to think of.

I wear it when I’m feeling particularly rebellious. So hardly ever.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Play

I couldn’t help but be struck by the vibrant colours of this slide in a childrens’ playground in Abu Dhabi.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: RGB

This week’s Tuesday Challenge on Dutch Goes The Photo! was to post an image containing the three key photographic colours of red, green and blue. Simple enough, you might think but although I have lots of shots with two out of the three, there weren’t so many that included all of them.

However, I found this: it’s a windsock at a small local airfield that has an annual summer air show. As you can see from the bend of the pole to which it is attached, it was quite a windy day, but a fast exposure (1/750) effectively froze the movement to reveal all the colours.
