365 Project – Day 20

The beautiful city of Bath has many historic buildings which are one of the main attractions for visitors. There are also some parts that are not so scenic but our sensibilities are protected by a local council and by local pressure groups. Some of these pressure groups appear to take a firm stance of DO…

365 Project – Day 19

There has been a strange bright light in the sky today that was very worrying until I remembered what it is, SUNSHINE! And it lasted all day and it was quite nice and warm. It won’t last of course but it was lovely while it did.Tonight we get frost. Here is a picture of the…

365 Project – Day 18

I’m afraid that I never got round to posting yesterday but it was “one of those days” and I just could not get myself in the mood for anything. However I did get one shot that I thought was quite interesting, looking down our road with a mixture of roofs, wires, aerials and into the…

365 Project – Day 17

Sorry to say that today has been a complete washout photographically so rather than offering you a stock picture, here is a pub sign. The Dog and Duck! Now I’m off for a pint. 17 January 2014

365 Project – Day 16

Some days it is proving to be a real struggle taking a photograph for this project. The weather really isn’t helping and the time of year is making everything very dull indeed. Today however I actually took twenty one photos; some showing the rain and threatening clouds and some this evening as I was in…

365 Project – Day 15

I do like a good trompe l’oeil, from the French (obviously) meaning “deceive the eye”. These are paintings on buildings in a lifelike style to create an impression of something that is not actually there. They are very popular in France,I’ve seen them on visits to Paris and when I used to make business trips…

365 Project – Day 14

At last, nearly half way through January we have had a decent frost. All slippery roads and pavements and car crashes and journey delays; well it was going to happen sooner or later. On the plus side it cleared fairly quickly so that people could go about their business safely. I had intended to try…

365 Project – Day 13

The streets of Bath are notoriously busy, there are the locals, the tourists, people coming for the shopping, people coming for the rugby, or the university, or the other university or the Jane Austen Society and so it goes on. With such crowded streets there are also people attracted by the fact that the streets…

365 Project – Day 12

Today I will say a little about Border Terriers. Border Terriers are small brown dogs originally from the northwest of England and the border area between England and Scotland. They were used by the local fox hunts for sending down the fox’s earth to chase them out. They were also popular with farmers as good…

365 Project – Day 11

Once again it has been a fine and sunny day in the beautiful city of Bath. As usual on a Saturday we went to the Farmers’ Market at Green Park Station which was much busier this week but still not up to full strength in the post New Year period. As it was such a…
