I’m using Facebook to post my daily photo. Why? Because it’s quick and easy and because I’m lazy. But it’s more than that; this blog is called Sixpixx because, following my sons’ demands to only show them the best photos and not the hundreds I might have on the camera, I originally had the intention of always uploading a post of 6 photos. Well, although that didn’t last long, and rules are made to be broken, I do try to stay ‘around’ the 6 photo post and 1 photo is nowhere near 6 photos – I don’t think.
On the 1st Jan, I started a 366 (didn’t realise it was a leap year at the time) challenge on FB. Couldn’t have timed it more poorly – as I keep ranting over and again, the weather has been atrocious and the motivation to get out and about is pretty slim at the moment. Any way, this paltry collection is what I managed in week 1
My, there are long gaps between posts at the moment. That’s because we are having the longest run of miserable, grey, nothing weather which is not very motivating for getting out of the house and makes taking photos really difficult – lots of dull colours and blown out skies. Not that I have hung up the camera. On the contrary, I have been doing a 366 challenge since 1st January – although most of the photos are pretty desperate and dire, maybe I should post them here as well as on FB. But for now, I want to show you just how awful the weather has been – day after day after day after…… Anyway, you get the picture.
So, I got up early yesterday to make sure I didn’t miss it.
I was beginning to feel like the little girl in the Ray Bradbury short story ‘All summer in a day’. Such a sad story.
Can I just say how much admiration I have for this community whose environmentally sustainable way of life is becoming harder and harder.
Not far from where we live, it wasn’t until we took a new route with the dog that we came across this huge power generating plant. Apologies for the poor weather conditions… I know you people who are living in brighter lands will struggle to imagine the grey, nothing weather we have had for weeks and weeks now.
