Big brown eyes

(viewed 673 times)
Tim's looking doleful in this shot because he wants to get on with going for a walk, not have me pointing a phone at him. You can see some of his 'war wounds'. The various nicks on his muzzle when he's tried to run through fences and hedges, the scar below his left eye where he had a tumour removed, the scars on his right foreleg and mishapen right paw from when he was run over 6 years ago. That's if you can look beyond those big brown eyes.

Even the boating lake had waves today

(viewed 853 times)
This is a small man-made 'lake' with no connection to the sea. The waves were whipped up by the wind. I got soaked taking this shot by the way. What we do for art, eh? ;)

My daughter's birthday today. Better watch out on the roads because I'll be teaching her to drive.

Barry skyline

(viewed 617 times)
I was driving back from the supermarket this evening when I noticed the sky. So of course I had to stop and take a quick photo. Bit of a contrast to the stormy sky yesterday evening.

Stormy sky

(viewed 613 times)
Very windy walking the dog this evening, good for blowing the cobwebs away. Just what I need right now.

Old Pier, Weston super Mare

(viewed 1974 times)
On a clear day you can see my home town Barry from here - but not today. The old Pier in Weston looks very sorry for itself, it's very dilapidated.

Sunset of a life

(viewed 708 times)
I had a call from my father's nursing home this evening. He hasn't been well for some time but today he has deteriorated drastically, even since my visit in the afternoon. The nurse said that I'd better get over there as soon as possible. No-one has expressly stated this but I don't think they expect him to survive the night. Although I suppose no-one can really tell. On the way over here Elbow's 'Everthere' came on the stereo. A song that plays on my heart strings at the best of times. I had to stop in a lay-by for a minute while the blearliness cleared. Across the road was this sunset, something to remember as a sunset to a life.
