Project 365: Weeks 6 and 7

On a rather subdued note, I have been away for a couple of weeks, staying with family and attending the funeral for my Gran. This sad occasion took me down to London and Brighton, where most of these pics were taken. As you can see, the weather was perfect the whole time.

Norah Stafford 1921-1998

There's not much going on bythesea at the moment. A quiet week for me, and a sad one as well, for I lost my Gran on Wednesday. I am sure that she is much happier wherever she is now, and am feeling pretty philosophical about it. Nevertheless there is a gap, and regret over all the things that I wish I'd taken the time to learn from, and about her when I had the chance, but stupidly wasn't interested in when I was younger. She's not had an easy time of it recently and I hope that whatever she's doing now, she's having a ball. With love, Kerenx

Project 365: Week 5

Not such a great photo week I didn't think; I lost my enthusiasm somewhat. I'm hoping I'll find it again when it starts getting a bit lighter. Coming home from work in the dark seems to sap all my imagination.

I was especially annoyed to have missed the waterspout. It happened yesterday, according to the news, and the pictures indicate that it was over the sea right outside my flat, and lasted a couple of minutes. And normally I would have been there, but of course yesterday I was in the office instead, and missed the whole thing. Bah. I have resigned myself to substituting the thwarted photograph of stormy nature-in-action with a late-night slightly blurry picture of my hideous wallpaper instead.

Here are the pics I did manage to take:
