365 Project – Day 323

Christmas Lantern Parade. Each year at about this time Bath’s Holburne Museum organises a Christmas Lantern Parade; local schools make lanterns and Bath Spa University build the larger ones. This year’s parade had a maritime theme with sharks, mermaids, sea horses, jelly fish, lots of little fishes and an elephant. Together with drummers and hordes…

Grrrrr, squirrel! I may have mentioned before that Maude, our fearless Border Terrier, is passionate in her hatred of squirrels; when we met this one in Royal Victoria Park she went ballistic. There was barking, there was fearsome growling, chase was given until it disappeared round the back of a tree …… and vanished. She…

365 Project – Day 321

Late Garden Colour. Sometimes when I go out with a camera I randomly look for pictures and on other days I have a theme in mind and look for images to meet that theme. Today I was looking for late colour; no autumn leaves, no berries, just late flowers with good colour. I was surprised…

365 Project – Day 320

Yucky Stuff. Regular readers will have seen that I sometimes refer to my home town of Bath as the Beautiful City of Bath, which it is. However for the last few days our river has been blessed with some spectacular lumps of Yucky Stuff floating downstream and I’m sure that by now a committee of…

Eastgate, Bath. If you look hard as you’re going around Bath there are some historic gems hidden away waiting to be seen. This is the ancient Eastgate entering the city from the river on the eastern side. Sadly the view the other way towards the river is a mess of bicycles, boxes and traffic cones.…

365 Project – Day 317

Beech Hedge. When we first moved to our house in Bath our garden had a horrid evergreen hedge up each side; it was ugly, invasive and was dragging goodness from the ground so out it came. Mrs Sixwheeler likes instant gratification in the garden but I am happy to invest in longer term projects and…

365 Project – Day 316

The Border Terrier. In my opinion there is no finer dog than the Border Terrier. This is Maude, who is a regular on this blog. Maude is demonstrating ambition over reality; typically Border Terrier. 13 November 2014

365 Project – Day 315

Bicycle and Plough. Relics of an earlier generation, an old ladies bike and the remains of a horse drawn plough. We’ve moved on a bit since these were considered to be state of the art.

365 Project – Day 314

Shackle and Chain. Saw this in Newlyn harbour last week. Not sure what it does but as there is a shackle, some chain and a bloomin’ great lump of concrete I suspect that it has at some date had something moored to it. 10 November 2014
