My attempts to do justice to a splendid full moon.
After a serious first post of the day here is something in lighter vein. Last night in the twilight period a magnificent full moon was visible from my flat in King’s Lynn. The rest of this post details my attempts to do justice to it.
I have three separate pictures of this full moon:
I then tried to enlarge the last picture shown above, resulting in:
Some links relating to transport and the environment and some pictures.
As my first post of today indicated I have a lot of stuff to share, and I am breaking it into sections. In this post I deal with stuff that relates to transport and the environment (linked by the fact that how one handles the former can have huge effects on the latter).
I start this subsection with two links from the…
CAMPAIGN FOR BETTER TRANSPORT
The first of these links, to a piece titled “What is the chancellor’s plan for transport” provides some detail on what the recent spring budget offered in terms of transport. Please click on the Campaign for Better transport logo below to read this piece in full.
The second piece from the Campaign for Better Transport is titled “show the love to transport”, which gives some detail about both the actual and potential threat posed to Britain’s transport system by climate change. Please click on the image below, which shows those London Underground stations under threat from flooding to read the article full.
Three pieces in this little section as well, starting one from Sian Berry titled “Mayors Guidance Won’t Stop Estate Demolitions”. To read this excellent piece in full please click the image below:
Next comes a piece from livescience.com titled “Carbon Dioxide is Warming the Planet (Here’s How)” which includes a short video, as well as the excellent text and the image below which I am using as the link.
My final piece in this section comes from the Guardian on how climate change battles are increasingly being fought and won in court. To read it click on the image below…
Two pictures which book end my working day today – enjoy!
I am just back from day two of a three day auction being held by employers (look out for a full post on Thursday sometime) and just to keep things rolling am sharing a couple of pictures from opposite ends of the day.
As I was walking from the bus stop at Oak Street in Fakenham to my workplace on Norwich Street I saw an impressive looking moon in what was by then a day time sky. After some editing to bring out the finest points of said moon this was the result:
On the bus back I saw an incredible looking sunset which I tried to capture through the window. In real life it was much redder than the picture looks…
Anna recently put up a post entitled “Catch The Moon Challenge” and this morning as I headed out my flat on the way to catch the bus to work I was granted a perfect opportunity to do so, resulting in this picture:
This is an account of a Musical Keys session for autistic people that took place between 4:30 and 6PM on Monday. The photos I shall be sharing include some pictures of myself and the other people at the group. Everyone was aware that these pictures were being taken and that they were going to be made public.
I reversed my normal sequence of travel, going out by way of the Walks, which provided a few decent pictures…
I arrived at the venue, the scout hut on Beaulah Street, a few minutes early, and the youngsters were still finishing their session, so I waited near the front door, and bagged a few more pictures…
THE EVENT ITSELF
Before we got underway with the music making (don’t worry I was not playing a real instrument – as with the story of Sherlock Holmes and the Giant Rat of Sumatra there are some things for which humanity is not yet ready!) we were required to record introductions giving our name and one other fact about ourselves and select a special effect to go with our words. I decided that the other fact would be my enthusiasm for photography, and in a nod to my love of photographing nature selected the jungle effect so that it sounded like an opening to a wildlife documentary.
On to the music, and I was doing the strings by way of more software on the i-pad…
We had a short break in the middle of the session, and then resumed. Near the end we did the…
I took the first photograph, and then handed the camera over to another member of the group, provided some basic instruction, and of course did the preparing/ editing of the pictures myself…
A MAP LOVERS FEAST
We were in the ground floor room at the scout hut, and my attention was drawn to the maps (three in total with varfious adjuncts) on the walls. Naturally this was not an opportunity to be missed…
Having thoroughly enjoyed the Musical Keys session, and added to my photo collection, it was time to head home, and by then since the clocks went back the previous day it was full dark – still I did some photos on the way home, and I also include one from yesterday…
