One of the transformative things about taking photographs is that less good weather = more interesting skies. Some of the DULLEST photographs taken are on ‘perfect summers days’. The light is uniform bright and FLAT. This is a slight comfort when I look out the window and finally force myself to go out. In reality of course I should also take into account the Swedish saying ‘there is no bad weather only the wrong clothes’ but *sigh* it is hard to get it right here sometimes. These are from last week when I had a lovely afternoon in the Fine Art Library and afterwards wandered along George IV Bridge then Chambers St and South Bridge.
The Edinburgh Lofi Zine with the article about Jessie Mann is up! Find it HERE. I’m not entirely sure she would have known these particular trees having lived in the area 170 years ago. Should add that tha cat on the compost bin is not the fat black cat whom this blog is named after its an UNSPEAKABLE INTERLOPER IN MISS FRIDA’S GARDEN.. huh
Still seem to be in the season of the cold. I went to the library today got a new card and borrowed a few books. About to retire to bed with the new (to me) Dandy Gilver novel.
More snowy pics from last visit south. Note that I’m still running my 100 postcard project from last year. Sending a postcard yes REAL mail to anyone who signs up to my newsletter HERE. This was due to a extra batch of postcards printed last year. So if you are languising at home muttering about the junk mail arriving on your mat. Mutter no more…
