I will be taking a short break from uploading my photo a day photos after today, as I shall be on holiday for the next two weeks. Hopefully I will have some great photos to share with you when I am back :)
Photo a Day: Day One Hundred & Fifteen
Wednesday 3rd September
I’ve walked past this pile of tyres numerous times and every time I wonder why they are there. There are tyres of various sizes so I’m not sure if they are spare tyres for lorries and vehicles that need them, or whether they are discarded because they are no longer needed. But either way I thought they would make an interesting photo. I like how each of the tyres have there own different tread pattern.

The amount of lost shoes I spot on my daily walk is unbelievable. I’ve seen this little beauty a number of times before I finally decided to take a photo of it. I really like the way it is half hidden by the plants, almost as though it is trying to become part of the environment it has been left in. These abandoned shoes have inspired me to start a project of this nature.

I really like these little fuchsia flowers. To me they look a little bit like ballerinas in tutu’s. I often pass the garden in which these flowers are grown and always admire the fuchsia’s in there front garden. They have a large array of various coloured flowers. I liked these ones because of the gradient that occurs in the petals.

Thursday 28th August
On a walk this evening, I was almost transfixed by these trees, which struck me as a bit odd because I have passed them many a time before. It was just that on this occasion with the light glinting on the leaves and the wind gently making the branches sway, the leaves had a silvery tint to them. This along with the bright blue sky made for quite a beautiful combination. The picture doesn’t do it full justice as obviously you don’t get the swaying branches but never the less I think it makes a lovely photo.

Thursday 4th September
Earlier this afternoon while my mum was watering the garden she came across this little frog/toad (were not sure which) and yelled up the stairs that she had. I rushed down with camera in hand, hoping he was still around for me to take a picture of him. Luckily he was and isn’t he a beauty. (For some reason I have him as a he). I really like how he is nestled up in the undergrowth. Soon after I’d taken this photo he hopped off further into the undergrowth and couldn’t be seen as well.

Tuesday 2nd September
I popped down to my dad’s allotment again today to pick some more blackberries and whilst there had a bit of a wander round to see what other fruits/veg I could find. I noticed these runner beans growing and like how they camouflage themselves against the green of the leaves. I very much love home grown fruit and veg, that you can go and pick yourself. I think it tastes just that little bit better than shop bought.

What’s better than one fun-gi, a whole cluster of fun-gi!! I noticed this bunch of fungi growing quite prominently underneath a hedgerow and thought they would make a different and interesting photo of that day. I quite like the textures and patterns that can be seen.

Friday 29th August
Today I had my own mini baking session. As you are possibly aware by now, I quite like to do a spot of baking. These were made for my Uncle’s Birthday tomorrow but I made some extras to be eaten after Sunday tea. I went for quite a simple vanilla cupcake recipe with buttercream icing and chocolate sprinkles. Quite a simple recipe but with highly delicious results.

You know that book I kept going on about, well it arrived today. I hadn’t been expecting it for at least another 5 days or so. Therefore when there was a knock on the door I had no idea it was going to be my photo book. So I was ever so happy to find it was, and extremely pleased with the results. I absolutely love it!!
