A jumble of days

Here we are on a 2nd post for 2017 and it’s only 11 days in.  My goodness.

January 3rd to 11th has been a bit of a mix.  3 days in London, a weekend baking and some random bits’n’bobs.  Lets start with the randoms.  January 3rd was a trip into town and a quick shot of a nice bridge.  It was sunny but with it being winter and all I completely got the timing wrong and arrived far too late for there to be anything but shadows on the bridge.   The fourth was a walk slightly further up the river and a young swan trying to remove the grey.  Then we have wellies from January 6th (they’d just been used and I love the difference in sizes between us all) and finally some lovely chunky Rusty Ferret B.A.M.F yarn I was given as a christmas present which was about to become a hat (more on that in the next post).  I didn’t get the white balance at all right for that shot – it’s not green, it’s more blue.

Next up we have London and a fabulous day on Jan 5th so I just had to stop and rub shoulders with the tourists when walking over Westminster Bridge.  Somewhat depressingly, I didn’t realise at the time that I had some camera shake / focus issues so it’s not as sharp as it should be.  I’ll just need to try again on another lovely winters day.

It wasn’t quite so nice on the 10th when I was walking past Westminster and yesterday (11th) the photo options at Elephant and Castle eluded me so I caught the Old Vic on the way back to Waterloo.

Finally, we have cake from the weekend.  A cake of the world no less. Well, actually it was a cake of  a bit less than half the world.  I might write about this separately actually as it was a pretty impressive feat for a 14 year old.  The images are from (failed) attempt number 1 and the carnage from decoration.2017_jan-72017_jan-8

Hope you’re all having a good week and enjoying the snow which is apparently due to arrive.
