Through the Window (December Reflections 1)

So, here we are, December 1st and the year is all but done. I haven’t blogged much at all this year but this month I hope to get back into the swing of things, Today marks the beginning of Susannah Conway’s “December Reflections” for 2019. I am giving it a go.

Today’s prompt is: Through the Window

Now, this is a prompt that would normally pose little difficulty. I am after all in the habit of posting the “view from the van” when we park up somewhere new and also shoot the landscape as we drive… I therefore have numerous shots of the scene viewed through our windscreen. However…

We are currently parked nose-in to a wire fence, filled in with hedge and beyond that lies a belt of trees screening the view beyond. In short, there is nothing to see. The other windows are so heavily tinted for privacy that photography is difficult.

So what?” you might cry, “just post an old one… this is December Reflections on the year past“. This is true, my friend but alas, I cleaned my hard drive of images before we left home in hope of speeding my laptop up a bit. Every one of my photos for this year (prior to departure at the end of October) are stored safely on our home server.

A little creativity was called for and I took the camera with me on our dog walk yesterday and also today, in hope of hitting lucky… I believe that this photo will also serve for Derelict Sunday? Or perhaps not, I took this yesterday and chose it over the version that I took today.

Sagres, seen through two windows. Derelict building close to the campsite where we are staying.

The Featured Image is one that I took as we drove along on our journey out of France and into Spain (2nd November).

Perhaps, on reflection, the ever-changing view from the van windows is one of the best aspects of this big adventure that we are on. So very many views that we have seen! I should share more of them, maybe.

Feeling a bit seedy

Nell and I went for a walk this morning. It was a gorgeous day but we ended up by not going very far. The Crooked Man had gone out and I was expecting a parcel delivery. Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

Here, there, everywhere – and nowhere at all

Where do all these yawning gaps come from? Aha – this time I have the answer – I have been busy updating Scattered Thoughts! After a couple of very long posts, time and energy were lacking for coming here to write and as little else had happened other than a shopping delivery or two, it seemed unimportant.Also spending far too much time at Facebook, which I am trying to give up but it keeps onContinue readingHere, there, everywhere – and nowhere at all

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarch√© to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
