Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning

Beginning of the day.

Good morning from a sunny Hastings day.  I just want to say how I am feeling for those around the world hit by natural disasters.  I know Wellington got hammered with gale force winds, England have been having a good dumping of rain and the US are have a massive snow storm.  I don’t know about you but to me it seems to be a lot of these natural disasters at this time of the year.??????

Anyway The Daily Post weekly challenge is BEGINNING.

What does beginning have to do with this cobweb? Well it was taken at the beginning of my walk, at the beginning of the day while the sun was just beginning to rise.
Get the meaning> LOL.

A lingering Look at Windows: Week 1

Good evening from a windy and warm Hastings.

So yet another challenge for you Amanda Lakey.  When I get up in the morning I get my one and only cup of coffee and sit down to read blogs and the news online and then do the crosswords and trivia questions.  After that  I go for a walk.  By reading the other blogs I then have an idea what to concentrate on.  This morning I read about this challenge that I haven’t taken part in.

A Lingering Look At Windows:  Week 1

So I went on the prowl for some interesting windows.  We have plenty here as we have so many different architectural styles.  Today I just focused on the lead light windows from the houses built around about the end of the  19th Century to the early part of last century when lead light was totally the trend.  I love them and think it really adds to the character of the property as well as dating them.

Anyway it is now evening and as we only have one TV I tend to sit on the computer and go through my photos and edit them. I can’t stand Coronation Street which my husband loves.

Here is the same window from a different period but just as interesting with two different reflections.

It was just a matter of moving a couple of feet.

Here is another great blog to look at as well.
