“Writing is like painting. You sketch it, add colour, add depth and detail. You give it a final layer and then hang it proudly.”

I’ve been writing a bit more, here and there. I know I keep moaning about the lack of internet – but since I switch it off other than for the essentials, I’ve taken to being able to type away into the computer and write nonsense. Bit like this blog really! I’ve also been picking out some new quotes – 365 photos is one challenge, but 365 unique quotes is another! Today’s photos sum up the weather at the moment across the UK pretty much – Autumnal and Grey… Actually now I’ve properly looked at the photos they’re pretty vibrant considering… the joys of Instagram!

I relied entirely on my mobile phone for today’s pictures, something that I haven’t done since beginning the ‘photo a day’ challenge. I recently upgraded to an iPhone, so yes – I’ve joined the instagram band wagon!


It was incredibly cold, and as I was taking shots of icy windows and roads, I realised that along with the seasons my Photography has come full circle. I started off at the beginning, taking a few shots on my phone along with my camera as well – of icy windows and minus temperatures. And now I’m back there again, in the final days of the blogging!


As I drove to work, it felt like it had snowed overnight. The roads were clear, thanks to the gritters last night, but the trees and the hills were covered in white – it was beautiful. However, the queues were not so beautiful – the amount of broken down vehicles was incredible. Nevertheless it gave ample opportunity to take some photos – queues were my life saver today!


I had to stop to let a bunch of partridges cross the road (I’m sure there’s a joke in there somewhere…)


So the verdict of the iphone? I miss being able to zoom  in (unless the function is there and I’ve not found it) – I like the effects of instagram and think that those who turn their nose up at it are missing out a little, but it’s never going to replace my normal photo taking habits, rest assured!
