Sheltering From The Rain

I saw this wee bee hiding from the rain under a lily petal yesterday morning and just had to grab a photo of him.

This is my entry for Jez Braithwaite’s Water, Water, Everywhere challenge.

Glasgow, Scotland WWE #1

When Jez took over the Water Water Everywhere challenge, I thought I’d give it a go. There’s nothing more I love taking photos of than bodies of water. And, as we tend to go on holidays to beaches and visit towns with lochs and ponds, I figure I’ve got a few pictures to keep me going–not as many as my wonderful husband, but enough.

For this first post, I’m going with the River Clyde. The Clyde runs through the heart of my hometown of Glasgow. I have fond memories of walking along the river with my Granda and of breaking into the Glasgow Garden Festival (after the festival was over) with him–he wanted to add a couple of memorable stones to my stone collection. Yep, I was a weird kid.

The banks may have changed a lot over the years, but the feeling of joy and calm still remains.

Fan Of… Daily Post #5 — Rabbids Invasion

For Day #5’s entry to Fan Of… I’m going with Rabbids Invasion. Before I first saw the animated show, I’d never really heard of Rabbids. I never played Rayman—I’m more of a Halo/Hitman/PGR gamer—so missed the whole thing.

The first episode I caught did it for me, and I’ve been a massive fan of the bwahsome creatures ever since. I even had the shopping bag (below) shipped over from France.

If I had to say why I love the show, I’d say it’s a combination of the humor, the writing, and the endless ways of saying, “Bwah.”

If you haven’t caught an episode, do yourself a favor and check out Season 4 on Netflix.

Fan Of… Daily Post #4

I missed yesterday’s post—bogged down with site nightmares, again. So, here I am playing catchup as I’m unable to skip it. Seriously, how can I go from day 3 to day 5 and not go mental about the missing day?

For this Fan Of… post, I’m going with one of my all-time favorite cars. I say one of, but in reality, this is the car of my dreams. No other car comes close. The Ford Mustang (or Sorsie, as I’ve called it ever since I saw it on TV when I was a kid, I wanted one).

My taste became a bit more focused when I watched So I Married An Axe-Murderer in the 90s. There’s a scene where Charlie (Mike Myers) is driving around, and for the briefest of moments, there’s a gorgeous, sky blue 1965 Mustang convertible. The moment I saw that boy, that was it for me. Teenage me was in love. Adult me is still wildly obsessed with that car.
