Day 80

I can’t believe I’m on day 80 already. Here’s some rubbish from our dog walk.

Day 79

I decided to play with the color settings on my camera because I’m feeling a bit bored photographing things on my dog walk.

Day 78

This is the Clifton Suspension Bridge, designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel (love that name).  I always seem to go when the tide is out, so the tidal river below looks like a tiny stream with giant muddy banks.  What else can I tell you about this bridge?  There are placards with the Samaritans‘ phone number at each end.  I know it’s not funny at all, but I can’t help but find some degree of dark humor in it.  I wonder if they’ve ever helped anyone.

Day 77

I’m not quite sure how to feel about this photo. I think I’m glad that I took it, because these were the only ones I took yesterday. But, knowing now that it must be my photo of the day, I’m a little disappointed that Evelyn and I decided to play with the camera before we’d at least gotten dressed!

Day 76

Life would be so much fun if you could make babies pose. Instead, you have to take a thousand shots and hope you get a good one. I love this one of Evelyn looking thoroughly shocked by whatever her father is doing off frame. Even if I could make her pose, I would never have asked her to do this!

Day 75

This is the city of Bristol looking down from the top of Sandy Park.  I’m really looking forward to getting out of the city when we move back to the US.

Day 74

You know those picture games in children’s magazines? The ones where you find all the things wrong with a picture? The man is wearing pants on his head, there are teacups growing on the tree instead of apples, the curtains in the windows are upside down? This photo is like that. Can you spot what is “wrong” in the picture? (It’s not really wrong, more a trick of the eye that makes something in the photo look like something that it’s not.)
