WPC: On the Edge

feb-2016-1-32101x

Good morning from a cold and blustery morning.  I am up very early as I have a lot to do today and I am taking part in the Blossom Parade today dressed up as a Suffragist.  At least I have a very long, very warm woollen retro coat to keep warm.

This week  is living on the edge.  That is our prompt is edge.

This week, share your own interpretation of “edge.” Take a photo from an actual edge, like a balcony, a window, or a seaside bluff (wherever you are, stay safe!). Focus on a sharp angle or object, or show us the outer margins of a building, a face, or a book. I look forward to seeing your photos!

I won’t be able to visit you all this weekend.  So I hope everyone has a nice weekend.

One Word Photo Challenge: Contrasting Colours at Cornwall Park

Contrasting colours of the daffodils

Good morning from a cooler spring morning here in Hastings. As you can tell from my posts this morning spring is here.  Well so far at least.  But the weather is expected to turn nasty for the next couple of days.  Hopefully it is only for a couple of days as we have our Blossom Parade this Saturday.  For some reason I thought it was the following Saturday but got a nasty jolt yesterday when I found out it was this Saturday instead.  So I have had to quickly make my hat last night and organise my clothes.

These photos were taken on the first day of spring – 1st September.  So how could I resist the daffodils.

And we were serenaded by this lovely lady playing her violin.  It really added to the ambiance of spring.

Animal Friends of the Week: Three Ducklings in a Row

Three Ducklings in a Row-

Good morning from a crisp but sunny Hastings morning.  As I was working on my computer I had one eye on the skies outside.  We had another great sunrise.  I was a bit reluctant to go out, thinking it was a tad too cold.  But my itchy fingers took over and I went out with my cellphone and got some nice photos. They are for a later post.

Yesterday I got to meet Aletta from Nowathome.  It was great getting together and I got to show off Cornwall Park at it’s best.  Beautiful colours, calm waters and fantastic reflections.

The ducks were very vocal and active.  As we were walking around the back of the cricket pavilion I spotted these ducklings.  It was rather funny.  Every time we went to get closer, having only a cellphone on me, the ducklings would get up and walk towards their mother.  But they kept the same distance each time.  Another way of surviving the late summer/autumn weather and other aggressive ducks is staying together.  Which they did.  They always settled down in the same way too.

It was hard to get away from them.

Animal Friend of the Week Challenge Logo-
